    The top scores say it's 609, I've played two times and got just above 200. As far as I can understand, the more circles you blow up, the bigger is the score.

    The music track is awesome, though. I keep the game open just for the background theme, it's so calming.

    If you clean up the board, you get 50 extra points. I haven't reached that yet.

    Nice game, I did my first round and ended at 264. Frustrating at the last level when you hit 54 out of 55 or some such result.

    It is a pretty game though, the bubbles all popping into each other, I shall try again.

    Something else now to fiddle piddle my time away. Oh well…

    That is good info there, Jelena, I shall aim for that. Has any of you found a strategy yet? Or is it as random as it seems?

    i don't know. My highest is 282 which I don't think is very high. I had to figure it out as well. You get extra points if you clear an entire screen... that is called a boomshine.

    I found a score keeper, some people had reached over 500 points! I just have no idea how to get there. I tried the clearing of the field, to no avail. My highest level so far is just 271, long way off the 500+.

    But the thing that I have not figured out is when to jump in to merge more than I have, it is so frustrating, I seem to run in circles. Help!!!!!!!

    I am not even to try that one... I may become addicted to this one as well, and then do no work at all!

    It's a very nice and relaxing game, a sin not to try.

    It is hard to stay away for me as well from games, but this one actually becomes boring after a while, because there is so little you can do. You just watch like you watch an avalanche. I think I am not going to do it much. It is pretty, but so are soap bubbles.

    …and there I went in again. Got a Boomshine on the first one, the five balls. It flashed and the field turned dark red. The scoring just added double the amount, instead of five, I started with ten.

    I thought you were supposed to get 50 points added on, but that did not happen, I ended up with just 266. It is not worth the effort then in the lower levels.

    Ya, you know how you get that warm feeling in the pit of your stomach, and then it was just a clump. Maybe you have to claim it or some such thing. Or maybe what is written by people is just a tale, I don't know.

    I looked around to find a better explanation of this thing, but only forums I found. I am going to google again and report back.

    I can not find any more info. All that people are saying is that they are doubting the high scores, some claim to have gotten or heard about them, but no evidence of that.

    Then I had another thought. It says on the bottom there that only 3,97% of games pass level 12. Well, the explanation I think is when you reach level 10 or 11 and you see the score, you just stop and start over to get a higher one. I do. So do others probably. Misleading comment I think.
