I finally finished coding my roguelike game JSRL. Now let's get back to hacking. I have been addicted to this iPhone game called Coin Dozer. It looks like a real arcade game where you put coins in and try to make coins fall out in front.
You start out with 40 coins. There are many ways to get new coins. You slowly gain them as time goes on. You can install other apps on your phone to get some coins. Some of those apps cost money. You can also pay real cash for coins.
My goal is to not have to pay for apps or coins. So how do you do this? There are many techniques to do well in the game. But there is one hack that is very handy. You can always exit the game, and restart it. When you do this, the gold coins get restored back to the original position. This can help you out a lot.
I found the optimal game play is to do two sets of three coins each. That ensures a bunch of coins get pushed out the end for you. Then exit and restart the game. Repeat. This can keep me playing indefinitely with a lot of coins. Yeah it is just a game. But I play this game all the time. This little "feature" is keeping me stocked full of a lot of coins. Good luck in your coin dozing.
