Warlocks? Cubes? Giraffes?! Yep, it's the Laughing Jackal Blog

Great news!  Following on from its successful North American launch, our adaptation of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone’s Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is out now in Europe available for the fighting fantastic price of £3.49 or €3.99.  Now you can play the book that started the adventure in a whole new way.

We’re very proud of our work on Warlock of Firetop Mountain and the tweaks we’ve made in response to your feedback since Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death, all of which can be seen here.  So what are you waiting for? Batter down your front door, pluck your PSP or PS3 from its chest and download our latest adaptation of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone’s stunning Fighting Fantasy series. 

Update: Cubixx HD high score insanity:

In other news, over the last few weeks we have been seeing how some very inventive people have been getting high scores on Cubixx HD (still available for PS3 on both EU and U.S. PSN Stores kids!) Until recently we’ve been impressed by Adorno constantly topping the Arcadeleaderboard with very respectable scores.

On the 28th of October 2011 everything changed; everything we thought we knew about Cubixx HD turned upside down. We were astonished to see a score that had broken the 100 million barrier - 128 million in fact! highfvi was the new leader.

I’ve been speaking to highfvi about his achievements, trying to understand the methods used. Turns out, highfvi’s mammoth score was down to good old fashioned m4d ski11z. So, highfvi became member #1 of the elite Cubixx-HD-100-million-Club!

News flash! This morning I logged in to check the leaderboards once again and the top score as of 6:00am 10th November 2011 is 241,123,491 Unbelievable!! highfvi has done it again, more than doubling his previous already stupendous effort! Huge congratulations from everyone here on your herculean five-day marathon highfvi!

So, is there anyone out there who is willing to take the number one spot?

Feeding Time at the Zoo...

Lastly, we’ve all been hard at work on Hungry Giraffe and we will be sharing more information on this game next week.

Those Cubbix HD highscores are insane... but I can understand how he accomplished them. 5-6 hours of constant pay on a particular level can provide enough multipliers and scoring opportunities. Then again, you DO need to survive for 5-6 hours and with all the reviews I've got to take care of... kudos highfvi!
