First off, I just want to say that I'm pretty good at Lumines. Not great, I never hit the cap in the original or anything but on average I've been getting around 600,000-700,000 per game.
That said, I just hit the level cap of 50 after a grand total of only four games and one World Block bonus. The first game immediately got me to level 14 and after the fourth I was already at 29, but that friggin' World Block bonus just shot me up 21 levels!
I gotta say, I'm honestly really quite disappoited. Most of the reviews for the game made a pretty big deal about the leveling system and how the unlockable skins and avatars add a load of replay value to it, but I've now unlocked everything after what probably amounts to no more than 5-6 hours of gameplay. Sure, it's not exactly a deal breaker and I'll definitely keep playing it but I can't help but feel slightly short-changed. I mean, if you're gonna go to the trouble of putting a leveling system in your game you should at least make it take a while to climb, right?
So really I was just wondering if anyone else has found this to be an issue, and if not, why?
