Hahaha, I thought it said 44k.

I take it back, nearly half a million is ridiculously high :D

That is just insane, I don't know how anyone could achieve that, this game is so hard.  It doesn't seem right.

I'm terrible at this game by the way.

I just literally spent 4-5 minutes waiting for a penguin to get out of a previously cut area so I could dunk it. Try avoiding the seal for 5 minutes while waiting for the AI to move the penguin out to a spot where you can cut under it to continue playing... that's frustration right there. 🙄

 

Only 5800-ish my first try ever playing. I'm going back now to try again. :)

 

EDIT: OK so I get the mechanics a little better. Should yield some decent scores.

Really fun game, I’ve always liked this one, but I find it to be VERY hard...a little too hard I think. I wish there was a way to stop the seal a bit easier, then I think it would have more replay value for me. It gets old fast, but it’s still fun to play in quick bursts. I know this is one of Jacob’s favorites. I am absolutely horrible at it by the way lol.

Agreed. I love Qix and this kinda resembles it but I have no trouble scoring in Qix. This though... is a pain. 🤣

Thought so.  They made a good game that could have been great if not for the ridiculously programmed seal.
