    I have a hunch an arcade player is cheating the high scores. I find this very disapointing because I know the high scores I have been trying to get are now completely out of my reach. I have reported this situation but have a feeling thier scores will stand. If you also feel the way I do and are sad about the poor sportsmanship and deflated because of the unequal playing field, please also report it so that someone will take notice and perhaps something can be done about it.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I do not only have a hunch that some scores are cheated. I am certain they are. It is just not possible to make a score of more than 1000 in the Pingu Slap. Without cheating, that is.

    ETA: And I do not think that it is merely one person (or account) who cheats. Here is another impossibility:

    The fact that the high scores in the second link are all between 650k-900k and then the top score is well over 7 million made me see what you mean.

    Hi, ive not been online for quite some time and decided to have a look and see if any of my high scores still remained. It was then I noticed, well what's the best way to put this?, "some unusually high scores".

    What's the point of even considering an attempt at a high score when you don't think it's possible to achieve.

    As things stand there is no point having the games on this web site, they may as well be deleted to save some bandwidth.

    I wonder if they could reset all scores without messing up anyone blessings, and letting everyone have a fresh stab at the games???

    I wouldn't be suprised. Some of the game high scores can't be beat.

    I am suspicious that these scores were achive by cheating. The person has a new high score every minute. and the score is very high for that game.
    http://www.christianforums.com/arcade.php?do=scores&gameid=93

    same goes for this one

    http://www.christianforums.com/arcade.php?do=scores&gameid=70

    and this one

    http://www.christianforums.com/arcade.php?do=scores&gameid=77

    i could be wrong, and if i am i apologize but it is kind of wierd that a high score can be beaten so many times every minute...

    any idea who can i talk to about this?
