For example, in one level, my highest score was '96,850' and then I got a better score of '98,570'. So that means my score for this particular level should be increased by '1,720' points.

However, when I check my rankings, I found that my total score (for Pig Bang only) was only increased from '1,925,475' to '1,926,145', which is an increase of '670' points.

There are other situations where I got a better score of about '600' points but the total increased only by about '400'. All the scores were taken as snapshots on the new iPad, so I can do calculations with good accuracy. Does anyone know why the scores increase differently?

Update: After some more playing, I just noticed that the Pig Bang level says I have a score of 1,961,015, with 90 stars out of 90 stars obtained, while if I go to the Rankings of Game Center, it says my score for Pig Bang is 1,959,240 -- and this score was updated as soon as I got higher score in one level, so it looks like this score is very up to date. But why different from 1,961,015?

    Which version are you running, Android or iOS? Not seeing this behavior in iOS, but just tried a real quick test. Commented Mar 29, 2012 at 2:13

  • Have you tried summing your scores and comparing them to the total? Commented Mar 30, 2012 at 2:47

I think that the problem is your looking at ranking. Because when you score a new highscore, you get a little higher on the ranking list. There is a difference in the highscore list and the ranking list. Ranking is your current position out of all the people who play the game. I hope this helped.
