Wizorb is on sale for 74¢ on Steam. For the record, that's cheaper than dirt. Sale ends @791.beats.

The game is pretty good.

I feel like such a dick when I buy games on sale that are already super cheap. :(

While we're on the topic, does anyone know of any watches that display swatch Internet time?

Man, I used to have the #1 score in the world on Steam at this game, since there's actually a maximum score on most levels, and the community is small enough that it only took me like 25 hours of playing it to have nearly the best possible score and surpass everyone else (at the time). But people have found ways to get scores that seem slightly higher than is possible, and one guy has an absurdly high score that he got on one world, and must've got some lucky glitch or something. I haven't bothered investigating since I don't care THAT much to retake the top spot. But this thread has prompted me to recheck the leaderboards:

  • World 1 definitely has a max score. I have it, so do others.
  • World 2 has a unique wildcard to it, where a fairy spits out a bunch of items, some which can increase your score, but some things are just things that don't give score like extra lives and more mana. I have a decent score on it, and this randomization can account for the people that have 10-20 more points than me, and MAYBE for the one guy that has like 70 points more than me (even if the fairy dropped all gems which give the most points, I'm not sure the extra 70 is possible). But it especially does not account for the guy that has 1.1 billion more than me. Has to be some kind of nutso glitch. Puzzling. I'm surprised the score variable can even go that high, when the highest score possible on most levels isn't much higher than 3,000.
  • World 3 definitely has a max score. I have it, so do others.
  • World 4 definitely has a max score. I have it, so do others.
  • World 5 seems like it should have a max score, but one guy randomly has 279 points more than the rest of us, and unlike the randomized fairy, I have no idea where he could've gotten those points from in that world.

Anyway, yeah, check it out, it's totally worth the 75 cents.

Not even Swatch makes them...that's pretty telling.

@BisonHero: I was in the top ten for worlds 2 and 3 in the few weeks following release. I need to go back and see how far I've dropped... I never earned the max score, though.
