The game has three separate play modes (curvable ball, steerable ball and straight ball) and two difficulty settings, achievements should ideally be awarded for reaching score benchmarks on specific settings/modes, not just overall.

I am sure I can make do the ideas I had for for three different modes.

I'll add secret cheeve

Total losser = no hit at all in any mode

Ooops : hit only one from 10 sticks

I'm hardcore : don't carve the ball in a full game (game mode 1)

I believe it's very unlikely to score 250+ on Game 5... :/

"With straight ball it is impossible. There is a randomness to the outcome. Even when you find a spot to get a strike and stay in the same spot every throw, it will not always be a strike."

300 points is almost impossible to score. The ball moves is completely unpredictable after hitting the pins. I can stand exactly in the center and make throws, sometimes it will be a strike, sometimes there are two pins on top, and sometimes three pins on the bottom.

I believe that achievements should be based on skill, not dumb luck.

Two achievements already were demoted. 200 points is possible to do without strikes so I think it can be kept.

, I had already completed the game except those achievements that were demoted.

How can I receive the game badge/icon on my page without losing the first place on the "High Scores" game page?

It's one thing to score a lot of points and completely different to get the PERFECT score. Twice. 250 points is a decent challenge.

The issue at this game are the strikes. 250 points requires at least 5 strikes, and at straight mode they are random. Since achievements totally based on luck are not welcome I proposed the demotion and it was accepted.

200 points can be earned if you get all spares, no need for strikes. Thats why I propose to kept it. Plus those two demoted achievement had no hardcore earners.

You can either reset one cheevo and re earn or send a message to RAdmin explaining the situation and they must give you the badge.
