Yay! Congrats!

I'm telling you, once you beat this game, it becomes easier to beat again. I don't always win - some games suck! But I also just beat it for the fourth time, this time getting my new high score of 181,070. So in one night, in course of a few games, I got my personal best high and low scores - and beat the game both times.

Given the simplicity of this game, I'm not sure why that first victory is so hard, but it gets easier. I think now I can "retire" for real. After beating it once, my goal was to beat it again. Then I wanted new high and low scores. I've done all that. So...

I got up to 100,000 (approx) tonite, and I didn't even beat the game. One bad move or move where there's not 2 same colors already together and your screwed. Rows drop down and Never got the timer or to double my score

I know this feeling too. At first, rows drop down one at a time. Mistakes, lack of a certain color bubble or bubbles just not landing where they should can be overcome.

But as soon as you eliminate a color, the rows come down three at a time! Plus, instead of allowing 5 misses, then 4, then 3, etc. before dropping a row, after eliminating a color, you start with only 4. So if you are down to the two, one and zero miss region, that could be nine rows down with just 6 misses! Very tough - especially as I've had times when the game will spit out the same color bubble six consecutive times!

The timer appears only when you have two colors remaining. It will be VERY obvious as the game will pause and something will appear in non-English (basically saying you now have 5 minutes). The doubling of score occurs only after you eliminate those last two colors - that's "beating" the game.

yeah, I know, but sometimes there's nothing you can do. I had 1-2 colors eliminated, and was doing fine. Then BAM!!!

Beat the game with 134,110.

My life is now complete.

I do kind of find the game to be counter-intuitive, in the sense that it punishes you for thinking forward because it penalizes you for "missing" when in fact you might be setting up a better move down the road.

Yep - been there!

I think once you are down to 4 colors, unless the bubbles are already very low on the screen or you have some horrid luck, you should be able to win. The trick is not getting stuck with 5 color (where one color is gone) and have the rows cascade down on you 3 at a time!

Got a new low score in victory: 41490!

I know someone in this thread said he/she got 38K low score. Must beat....

If you wanna lose days of your life, play City of Heroes and/or World of Warcraft. I used to leave reality when I played these games.
