hi. can someone explain to me how these are scored? why is it that every time i solve a puzzle with a low success rate in an above average time, i receive less points than i get for worse performances on easier puzzles?

Default Here's what worked for me:

do a search for "scoring question"---there's a thread with that title, and your answers are in those posts from some experienced members---it should clear things right up for you!

Ummm....this feels like a dumb question, but which iphone app is yours exactly? I can't find a crypto game with 'puzzle baron' as a designer. I've been muddling along with just the crypto in the paper until this morning, when I decided I had to have more & found this site. Now I want them everywhere!

Hi. I can't answer your question, but Admin probably will. However, if you don't get a reply from him, at the bottom of every "page" here there is a way to submit questions and comments directly to him. I promise you that you will get an answer.
Hope you're having fun playing.

I don't think it is the success rate that determines the score. It is the difficulty rating and the time that makes the difference.
