I was responding to someone who left a comment on one of my games.
I saw on that person's message board a complaint from someone else about 'gambling' games. Those would be games in which you can't get 100% by skill, only by luck.
I will not name the person who made the complaint, but the basis of the objections seems to be that such games should be avoided because they hold down your average, and keep you from rising in the leaderboard. (i.e., you get a low score at an 'impossible' game, and you'll never get 100%.)
The specific game in question was "How Lucky Are You?", but there are others.
One of them is my own, mis-named game "How Lucky Are You? Quiz-style" (should be "multiple choice-style".)
Anyway, the person had a point. Games like this should not be considered in the leaderboard rankings. There should be a way to get games like that stricken from the list.
Yes, on my part for my game, I could reset the high scores, freeing people from low scores in that game. I could delete that game. But it is one of my more popular games, and I don't want to deny somebody their ATH (87%), take the 'number of games played' away from a lot of people, or lose a game that actually does make a point regarding probability.
And that still wouldn't address the problem of similar games.
Is there something that can be done about this?
If not, my apologies to all who have lower stats because of it. (Oh, I'm 0% in that game--not as difficult to get as 100%, but still not likely.)
