Have to admit, that 28 score is amazing. I've played the game enough, and cracking just 10 is not easy for me. Good job! :)

Thanks. Take some breaks but keep trying. It took me a while to get past 12. :)

I think its just you and me who have the patch ATM. 

I might add a list of people who got it to the thread once a 3rd shows up.

Finally had a good game after many hours of plugging along... Not nearly as good as Steves amazing game!

I tried the paddles, but didn’t like them for this game. You want a controller with a short throw. It’s too hard to track a star between clouds with a paddle, at least it was for me.

Please tell me someone else has reached or surpassed 20.  The Brotherhood could use a few more geezers gazers. ;-)

By the way when I scored 23, I was just concentrating on the game, relaxing, and had no idea my score was that good until game over.  I thought maybe 16 or 17...

Does the cart give you more time? I am playing the Bin and I start with 130 seconds.
