I was checking the online Scoreloop leaderboard today for Bus Jumper, and there are 6 people with scores above 1000. This means they crossed the 1000th platform in the game. There are 29 more people who’ve crossed level 500. The first thing I’d like to say is, thanks for playing, and I’m glad you like the game
It’s funny to see other people playing your game, especially when they are so far ahead of you. I think I’ve crossed level 100 once, and that was at a kids’ bookstore while my daughter was distracted. It’s not like the game keeps getting harder (the speed / difficulty starts to flatten out after level 25), so it’s mostly a matter of how much time you put into the game. Now that I’ve seen how people are playing it, I feel like I should try to add some kind of achievements. I should also think about how to mix up the gameplay a little. I never expected people would play to level 1000. Suggestions are welcome.
sCatter is slightly different. That’s got a bit of a learning curve to it, where you need to get the hang of how to herd the cats effectively. When I was testing the game, I would often end up close to the top, and I’m sure I could get back in the top 10 fairly if I tried. But even there, the top score is 141,900, which works out to about 4000 per level. I’m not sure I could beat that.
I guess I’ll just have to start getting used to the idea that other people will be better at my games than me.
