i couldn't get past level 12...I could get like 50 or 53 out of 55. Cool game though, definitely true to its name as an addictive game.

OH ya, that is probably one of the coolest most soothing games I have come across. It must be that piano piece going.

yeah it's interesting technique....

they're gooin' different speeds, and by all i can tell, it's all pretty random.

at first i looked 'through' it and waited for them naturally group....

then i thought it's a waste of surface area if you go to an edge, so to maximize explosive surface area, keep twards to center.

then i tried predicting the paths they were moving into...but it got too hard at higher levels (duh!)

so now i keep it tward the center and watch for balls moving in.


there's an odd war-like chain reaction that is strangely interesting to watch happen.....when in all, we feel good with a single click of the mouse!

Ditto, me too. I just finished level 12 with a 261 score. It seems hitting slower ones moving toward center works, particularly if faster ones are coming toward center as well, it then increasing the explosion area exponentially.

I was following the center thing right off. You just have to wait for that group to flow around to were you think they will all be affected, or as many as possible.

But hell ya WYD, that is the same thing I get expecially with the music that is behind it. Those balls start exploding and it seems to build momentum in an odd sort of way the music kind of follows it.

Like I said, I found it oddly relaxing for the 15 minutes I got to play with it before I had to leave. I'm gonna give it another go tomorrow night though.

254

the trick to level 12 is to click in a blank spot (I go for a corner or edge) because that makes the rest of the field more dense...

I got to mess with it again a little bit tonight. And no, I can't get level 12 yet. Although I came into level 12 with a score of 227 it is killing me. I'll have to try the corner attack as suggested above when I get a minute.

How many tries on average has it taken anyone to complete level 12? I don't think I'll ever get there again with the score I had last night.

Honestly though, I could just sit and listen to that piano piece for a couple of hours and relax.

Finally finished it. 286 And I lost count of how many tries it took me so you can guess it was more then 10 tries.

Now I know why they call the place addicting games.com!

254. Level 12 was forever, but the music design is brilliant in the way it changes modes as the pieces interact. That guy is a sharp musician.
