    Maybe it's just me but I find this game really difficult.
    After a few minutes I can't find the next move. Anyone got some tips on how to get better?

    Its a great game. Keep at it, and you'll soon get the hang of it. Also, it does give you little clues now and again. Look out for the odd triangle that sparkles. That should tell you enough ;)

    Nah, it's not difficult, but I have been caught out a couple of times by not seeing the bombs appear.

    It's a very cool game. Just look out for the black trisms you can hold and move their line anywhere without having to make a match. These are very useful.

    I haven't cracked 2 million points yet though as I don't play it often enough.

    Keep at it.

    It's only difficult if you don't disarm the bombs as soon as possible.

    well, if you sign up for a free account, you can upload your results/high scores/etc to a server, that way, whenever you reinstall or upgrade the software, you can sign back into your account and download your results/high scores back to your iphone.

    also, the achievements are just that. achievements. you don't get anything special. but you can pat yourself on the back :)

    to me, in order to get the high scores, you just have to wind up getting very lucky to get those huge chains of trisms. You can't control the types of triangles off the screen.

    also, not to be condescending, but are you tilting the device at all to make the pieces fall in different directions? that may be why you're getting stuck after a few moves.

    you'd be amazed at how few people actually pay attention to the instructions.

    You don't get to 'use' them. They are just to show what you have done in the game, essentially bragging rights.

    You disarm bombs by making a set of 3 trisms using the bomb trism. You undo a lock the same way. You should consider going through the tutorial in the game, itd probably make the game much easier.

    Well it is easy to play but I just can't make those huge combos like the other people do. I've only gotten like 2,000,000 points once and thats it. I never knew how I did it.:D

    I don't find it difficult at all ;)

    And I get my big scores in starshine mode by putting rainbows together.

    Haven't played normal mode in months....

    I have scored over 100 million on classic total, but I'm still not clear on how exactly to plan out big scores, I just keep playing.

    I don't really find trism hard, it just takes a little bit to get into it. Take advantage of the fact that you know what pieces are just out of sight to make combos... make a bunch of holes before using a rainbow trism, and use movement trisms wisely. I typically save them for when I have a bomb.

    One thing I didn't think I would get into because I'm not an advanced puzzle player is strategically rotating but it came naturally after awhile.

    Just keep at it, and you'll pick up on the ins and outs :)

    Well if you want a secret strategy for normal mode that will get you a lot of points...Set-up three rainbows around a hole, so in an eclipse shape, except there is a gap in the middle so nothing happens. Then use a different rainbow piece to make a match, so at the end, the hole gets filled in with a color and creates an eclipse. This will get you a good multiplier before the eclipse chain even starts, resulting in more points ;)


    Nice job, keep working at it and before you know it, you'll be in the millions.
