"Toy Box" Leaderboard Top Scores (1st Aug 2011)

( Updated on 30th Apr 2012:  Unfortunately, the scores for 3 boxes "Cosmic", "Valentine" and "Toy" have been "mixed up" when the order of boxes was changed in "Cut The Rope" ver. 1.6 (read: Changes to Order of Boxes in "Cut The Rope" ver. 1.6), so you cannot really compare the scores for these 3 boxes now because some players have replayed the levels in them, resulting in higher scores than usual.  Read article: NEW "Score Mixup" Bug in "Cut The Rope" ver. 1.6. )

Someone asked me what are the current top scores of the latest "Toy Box" so here it is.

"Purple Dream" is using iPhone 4 while I'm using iPhone 3G (waiting for the new iPhone), so our "perfect scores" may be different.  It's just a coincidence that our scores for this box and "Valentine Box" are very similar.

Based on the scores we're getting for "Cardboard Box", which is the easiest box to aim for "perfect score", the gameplay for both iPhone 3G and iPhone 4 is still the same as last time (both devices still have the same differences like last time).

Many of the game level designs have been changed, and I think they're doing this so as to narrow the gap of the score difference caused by the different gameplay problem.  I was hoping that they calibrate the gameplay instead so that it's 100% identical for all devices, at least for all the iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad).  Now when we compare scores it's like comparing apples with oranges.  :-)

( New changes to top scores for "Cardboard Box", both in iPhone 3G and iPhone 4. )

Last time in vers. 1.1 to 1.3, the "Best Score" for the "Cardboard Box" was 141,770 pts for iPhone 3G and 141,650 pts for iPhone 4.

In ver. 1.4, the total score achievable for the "Cardboard Box" has been increased due to some changes in the level designs.  In Level 1-21, the position of 1 star has been changed while in Level 1-23, the positions of the candy and bubble have been changed slightly (read my next post for more details).

So now in ver. 1.4, the top scores for "Cardboard Box" are:
(1) 141,790 pts using iPhone 3G ("davidgoh").

( Updated on 23rd Oct 2011:  The iPhone 4 top score should be 141,700 pts in vers. 1.4 and 1.5.  Read the article: Individual Level Top Scores for "Cardboard Box" )

(2) 141,680 pts (true when article was written) using iPhone 4 ("Purple Dream" and "Kopalexis").

For some boxes like "Cardboard Box", iPhone 3G has an advantage over iPhone 4/4S but for others like "Magic Box" and "Cut The Rope: Holiday Gift", iPhone 4/4S has an advantage, etc.  We have to use different tricks and methods in some levels and even when playing in the same way we can get different scores.

When you compare iPhone 3G with iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 3G has a slight advantage of 10 pts or more when dealing with bubbles because bubbles rise up faster, while iPhone 4/4S has more "springy" ropes and Om Nom can stretch open its mouth slightly wider.  So certain tricks and techniques can only work in certain devices.
