    A bit pricey to buy a pick. 350,000 coins for an iron one. Are the bombs any good, worth 5,000?
    Thr bombs are basically a mini version of the steel chisel, but lasting 8 seconds instead of 7 minutes.

    You can stockpile them (as you can with any of the powerups), but you're really better off saving a bit longer and getting the steel chisel for 1m coins. Sounds a lot, but you can easily get over a million coins in an hour.

    I get the complete opposite impression - he is massively self-critical to the point where I think he doesn't believe he's earned his reputation at all. He sees massive flaws in everything he's ever done, no matter how well loved and acclaimed they are.

    Ok, well I take it the coin bug hasn't been fixed. I had 36,000 coins, and accidentally pressed the facebook button, aaand its wiped off 20,000 coins.

    I'm not allowed to play it.

    "Not compatible" with my iPhone 3G, apparently.

    Give it a few minutes and they should be restored.

    I've heard the prize in the middle is the opportunity to give Peter Molyneux a reacharound.

    @EatMyCow

    So you know nothing about the chain bonuses, the different game mechanics that will be added to each layer soon, the pictures on every other layer that may or may not be linked in some way, the way thousands of people are just using it as a giant graffiti wall...

    Have this on my S3 but I never see anything anyone else has done, it's always just my cube, but the layers disappear in accordance with overall progress.

    Nope. Gone for good, just checked. I hope they fix this, because I don't want to lose hard earned coins just for mistakenly clicking a button that should be in the menu.

    Oh, and I keep getting kicked out, even with a good connection.

    I hear the Prima guide is worth getting. The deluxe hardback edition comes with a pull-out map.

    This game is an Obsessive Compulsive's wet dream/terrible nightmare.

    Anyway, I'm planning on swooping in at the last second and claiming the last cublet and prize for myself. So fuck you all.

    There's a pic of someone on the CVG blog who managed to get a chain of 2,000,000

    O_o

    I assumed everyone was going to do this, or more accurately when it gets to the last few, the flood of people trying to snipe the last cube will make the server die so hard it'll kill the entire Internet.

    For what it's worth I find it oddly relaxing chipping away at the cube whilst watching TV.

    He hasn't said how many layers there are going to be though.

    The estimate is that were around 2,000 layers from layer 1 to the center, but it wouldn't surprise me if he had figured people would work that out quickly and actually bring the end forward - after a hundred or so layers. So it suddenly ends even when the cube is still pretty big.

    Same here. As a passenger in a car, having a fag in the garden, or when the OH is watching something awful on tv, it's quite distracting.

    And if you can't sleep, I find the sound of the tinkling cubes dissolving combined with the ambient bg music pretty relaxing.

    Bah. another 5,000 gone missing and getting disconnected again. I'll await an update before playing any more.

    5,000 is nothing to be fair... you can get that in about ten seconds.

    Anyway, some photos I've taken so far (including some graffiti I came across a few days):

    Weird. I've not had any coins go missing in over a week now, not since the big server upgrade. Maybe for some people it hasn't been sorted yet, but everything I've read suggests the issue has been fixed.
