Pin Fall now available in BlackBerry World
I'm happy to bring another of my games to BB10. This time it's a physics-based spin on the trusty action puzzle game, with a pin / badge / button theme. Again, expect the BB10 features like native code, ScoreLoop support and multitasking.
(Again, apologies for referencing non-BB platform things such as GameCenter. All features have been upgraded to their BB10 equivalents though!)

I've just submitted an update to address some issues when Scoreloop is disabled or can't connect to the internet. It should appear shortly.
It's for leaderboards and achievements / awards. Are challenges something people would like? I have to admit it's kind of nice that developers get that "for free" on the Apple platform, I'd have to do more work with Scoreloop.

Maybe it's just coincidence, maybe these are just great games. For me, the challenges are added incentive to play, and can result in rivalries.

Update is live btw.
Re: challenges, I think you're right; people do enjoy them. That's why they were added to Game Center in iOS, I suppose. Over on that side though, users are getting annoyed with challenge spam from games they haven't played before, that's why I was wondering if it would be popular over on this side of the fence.
Speaking of which, BBM status integration - yes or no? I didn't include it in my first releases because I figured most people keep their gaming and messaging separate, but now I've witnessed the social side of BBM (groups, chats) I'm wondering if it would be useful.

However, the only place I've noticed these challenges is in the game's app itself, when I scroll through the history, I'll see that I've won or lost a challenge in a game I've never owned. And most recently in a game not even available for my device, being one called Name That Plane. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't actually receive notifications that I've been challenged to a game of anything unless I go into the game's challenge mode and look for myself.
As for BBM status integration, I've never heard anyone express a desire for this option, other than to turn it off. I think while there may be some people with a case of Statusitis, this feature is mostly for Devs to advertise.
