Pocketgamer's reviews have hit a new low with this and the quality is usually very low.

This is awful - the servers are woefully inadequate and the game just doesn't work. You should mark games on reality rather than on the idea. This is a 1 or 2/10 because it is broken.

mr_bez: it doesn't appear to be so. Mr. Slater has already begun a journal chronicling his time with this game--meaning his five minutes have come and gone, and he's determined to see this one through.

Don't think it's stored in the app. The competition rules visible inside the app say that the "winner" will receive a link to a video. I'm guessing they'll wait until it's over, verify on their servers who the last person to remove a cube was, then send the email manually.

My bigger problem is that their servers are incapable of keeping track of and displaying what other people are doing. You can spend ages tapping out a picture then it'll suddenly be replaced by a huge empty space someone else has hacked out. And they probably hacked that out without ever seeing your drawing, and most likely before you even started. I reckon the "last block" will probably be removed by hundreds of people before the servers catch up, so how they're going to determine the winner is beyond me. I guess they'll just pick a name at random.

It's an utter failure from my point of view and I think the 9/10 score is something Harry must be regretting if he's played this for more than 5 minutes after rushing this review out on the morning of release.

isn't it just a matter of time until someone hacks the app and finds what's in the middle then ruin it for the rest of us?

I always figured that this was more of an experiment in how much banality people are willing to put up with before they accept the overwhelming disappointment they've been saddled with--much like the first Fable game was for me (I didn't buy iterative titles).

I think I'll side with TouchArcade on this one as well (this is their first ever 1-star game--a fact that literally caused errors with their system, which was wholly unfamiliar with a 1-star review). I'm more than perplexed by this myself, as I come to PocketGamer to get opinions from a more critical lens--and somehow found the one person on Earth who would rate this higher than Horn, or Infinity Blade II, or... Well, you get the picture.

I dunno guys: TouchArcade gave it 2/5 which for them means 1% ie they're usually over-generous. I think I'll stick to my irregular lotto ticket?

Ugh, this has got to be one of the most boring games I've played in a long while. This is an experiment in boredom me thinks :/
