I've got almost 70 plays already and 7.9 rating - only need 30 more plays and the rating to stay the same (though going up would be nice) and I'll have it
Plus I want to test out something on the leaderboards too - just for curiosity sake after the recent changes.

Nice! Which one got it?
Hannah's Journey, which has had a revival after the feeds were "cleaned up" and has moved back up again.
Cleaned up isn't quite the right phrasing ... Feed filtering conditions have changed re instawins ... Thats more accurate.
Tempted to buy it for $50 but I don't have any hard drive space left
It's a really good game
What level are you Rob?
Is awesome a level? I'm sure that's his level!
Took you long enough eh? Or were you one of those nonces who was using it to pad out their streak?
Welcome to the Project Spark community. Take out your frustration with Team Dakota on those annoying Instant Win levels and people that ruin your community.
All the while, Team Dakota destroys your creations from the inside, so you have nothing to showcase anyways. Guess what? Instant Win didn't break.

Yet another reason I regret starting Project Spark.
I'm taking the issue up directly with Team Dakota. It appears the update may have stuffed up draw distance default settings on Win 8.1.
Which, if that is the case, is easy to fix. But also utterly poor in the first place to introduce a major bug in an update meant to fix bugs.
99 little bugs in the code, 99 bugs in the code. Take one down, patch it around, 117 bugs in the code...
And Shadow - spot on, Instant Wins didn't "break anything". They just annoyed some people. Would've thought draw distance issues were much more serious ones to address.
Ninja - that's good! And ironically, bugs being introduced in a patch to get rid of bugs in a game where coding and avoiding/testing for/eliminating bugs is at its core.
The best part is quite frequently i see the "hardcore" users say "Oh that bug has been around for awhile" WHY THE FUCK IS IT STILL HERE THEN?
The number of bugs is insane for a game that was more or less beta tested for a 9-12 months by the community. In some instances i don't think they even played stuff i
think they just made sure all the "kode" and creation aspects were focused on and left the actual game play as the last concern. Which seems to be the case when watching
them fumble through searches in the streams. But they can get through a 12 deep wheel of code to find that obscure command they want.
The feed searches a really really bad. So hard to find worlds and games. Similar issues with searches for props and assemblies too.
As for the bugs - if they're serious about game - and they should be - they should get extra people in for a massive push to fix them up. Bill Microsoft if you need to!
Unless things get some serious TLC i don't think the game is going to last a year or 2 never mind the 10 i saw they were hoping for.
The masses are going to be less likely to pump money into packs to build stuff when chances are it isn't going to work right
That is enough Win 8 games for you. No need to go for 2nd place!
Yup, time for him to start playing real games.
I was playing your Pong earlier
Yeah, its just a remix of someone else's game - a good one - to fill a spare upload spot. Gotta try to finish another world.
Looks good. Going to give this a watch!
I wish that other parts of the community there were as receptive to those just trying to learn. We've all got to start somewhere, especially those who didn't do the beta!
That's what sick days are for :)
So so true! It is tempting, trust me ... but we've got people away at work right now so I've gotta pull my weight. When they return though, it might be different!
Impressive stuff nevertheless, mate.
They were talking about adding it in a few months ago, but I guess nothing came of it
Damn their eyes. I wanted fanfares and a medal.
*shakes fist angrily!*

Woot. There ya go.
Oh wow - got there. Must've happened overnight when I was asleep. Thanks everyone!!
Well done - Good to see it happen for a proper game too!
I'd like to get the achievement on this game - put some time and effort into it. Thanks again everyone. :)
I've done what I could with my accounts.
If you make a real game using Project Spark tools, go out of your way to put yourself out there to the community there and get zippo in return - no wonder the instant ...
... win games continue to appear and dominate the Spark feeds - no other games get any meaningful feedback, attention or advice from the community there.

I've received more meaningful feedback from the so-called "evil achievement hunters" on this site about my game than those "real game creators" on Project Spark forums.
We have more of a community here it seems. And yet they complain - what a pack of hypocrites.
I'll keep creating games that I want to create - bugger them. I'll not make the mistake to ask them for feedback or guidance again.
But next time they complain on their forums about the "instant win games" ... well, they don't have a leg to stand on really.
We all know, but at this point Team Dakota isn't offering any feedback to accommodate either side, so the "community" takes it upon themselves to "fix" the problem.
It is really disappointing. I was genuinely looking forward to some ideas or advice on aspects of the game I created. Even put it up in the forums there to ask. Nothing.
That super active community though! They are the voice of the masses. What with the 10k+ people who are ruining their feeds! Unless the devs get a SERIOUS amount of
support from their microsoft overlords i have a feeling this game is going to stay niche and crash and burn hard.
The game has so so much potential. But there is a massive risk, as you say izret, of it falling if the community surrounding it behaves like they are.
Actually asked for genuine feedback in their "play this creation" forum - 10 hours or so later, 25 people have read the post, no-one has commented. I wonder if any played
