Not that I've looked at what medals you have either...

Thanks for the great list!

Thanks.
It would have been really good if Cursed Treasure had medals. That was a challenging game. There are no tower defense games exactly like Cursed Treasure with medals, but Arrow of Time and Bunny Invasion: Easter are similar.
Others may recommend "Narcolyxii", but in my opinion, that game is horrible and boring.

Agreed regarding "Narcolyxii". Not a fan at all. I really hope that Cursed Treasure gets medals but I will check out AoT and the Bunny game.

If I use chris-marks's solution for level 3, I need to remove THREE wells? "

Queen, unfortunately this game's medals for PAR are disturbingly inconsistent. I believe as long as you tie the PAR value, you're ok, because I thought there were a couple of levels where you COULD NOT get lower than the PAR value. I don't have time to test today, but I'll see if I have some spare cycles later this week to test things out with a new account.
Beware, I found some oddities with the PAR medals, such as you could beat a level on par, but it wouldn't be counted towards your total. I still don't know why that was occurring. I pulled my hair out trying to figure it out way back, and instead just wiped out my .sol file and used a guide to ensure I did every level right the first time to get the medals. Pain in the neck.

Under par means equal to or less than what's listed. Basically, if you finish the level and all three numbers are green, you got it.

They're real and they're spectacular.

That is such a good game. I like it. That is a game I like.

Anyone test this on a slower machine yet? I'm finding the last 4-5 orbs near impossible on a newer machine. It might also have to do with the luck of the placement of the orbs (putting one between 4 boulder, a green, a purple, and a red just isn't fair).

Well after playing this game on my computer and then playing the game on my much slower laptop I noticed it is a lot easier to navigate around the rocks when it is slightly laggy. This makes it much easier to get past the last thousand feet unscathed.

Can you please stop posting the pictures of all the medals unlocked? I don't know why, but I like to see what the medal looks like after I achieved it.

ok, you're right, to be honest I also like to see the medals once I have obtained!!

Was the point value of any medals changed recently? I had 14,985 points the other day, but now I only have 14,535.

in this case posting the medal pictures helps though, since it gives us a clue of what. I guess it never bothered me regardless though.

can you tell me where you got these pics from (which user?) there's two I don't have and I want to see if the comments that pop up when you roll over them in somebody's profile tell me what I have to do to get them.

It may be save the goons. It's now showing up in my recent medals.

Again, same here...
Fun fact: I got two other medals without knowing their value and I got up to exactly 40,000 again..so I'm the first person to get to 40,000 points...twice :D

Top row, 3rd from left: what is the description for that medal?
Besides, I've also discovered an "Epic points" medal for 450k points

I'm down from over 43k to under 42k. Some medals must have been zeroed.

I take it the medal in the top left with the heart is for making it through with all 5 lives left, or for not losing any goons?

My medal points are down as well. Anyone know what happened? I don't see any medals zero'd out. Maybe the recent games are not getting counted?

I got 50 points added to my total from a medal from "Save the Goons" a few hours ago, so it can't be that game.

Well after adding together all my points manually I discovered that some medals when going over them don't actually show their point values on your page but show them on the game's page. It accounted for 500 of the 600-something that I am missing. This may or may not be a correlation to what the problem is though. Hopefully it's all sorted out eventually.

I've been losing some major medal points too. I lost 530 points in one day after I got to 4740 in points. I have been reaccumulating points, but I should have 530 more. I hope the staff know about this and are trying to fix it.

Me too. I've lost more than 1k. Isn't there just a game that is deleted or maybe has deleted the medals?

Well currently you can still look up all of your medals and none are missing yet. It's just a matter of they aren't adding up right at the moment.
