Ever wonder how some of the high scores are so high? Me too! There is a good possibility it is from cheating. I have found that if you get good enough to receive the golden ball and complete the maze a second time while still having the golden ball, you can get the game to run a repeating loop where the ball will hit several bumpers, falls into the same hole and repeats the sequence, over and over again. This sequence isn’t high scoring but it does not require you to play, just set the game down and rack up the score. You can get it into this mode and leave it over night, wake up the next morning, and check it out, new high score. Once you know what you are doing it isn’t that difficult to get it into this mode. I did it three times last night. What you also have to do is set your iPod to, ‘Never’ go into standby, and it needs to be plugged into a charging source. I am going to post a high score doing this just to show it can be done. Bradlindsay, 87,419,865. This score could have been much higher if I were patient enough to let it run. I will not post scores using this method from here on out. The makers of the game need to address this glitch and players need to know that until this is addressed the high scores board is meaningless.

Please send us steps to reproduce and screenshots (or video if it's possible) then we fix this bug as soon as possible (we plan to send to Apple new update on next week).

You have to have the golden ball and complete the maze again while still having the golden ball. When you do this, the hole/launcher that shoots at the tiki’s will eject the ball immediately and the loop will start. This will not work if the targets behind the tiki’s are activated, not sure why. Tried to attach a .3g2 video and would't allow. Send me an email and I'll send you the video.

Re: 273 Million, Really!!!
There is another bug that help cheating on the game : when you are playing the first ball and push on "HOME" button on the Iphone, then relaunch the game and use the autosave it happens that the Ball Saver is activated and stay untill you lost the ball.
It only works one time though, as if you try to do this another time you have the famous bug where you can play during 1 seconds and then the game crash and come back to Iphone menu.
