I thought the same at first butt the more I play it I find its not made that much difference.

 

Yes it does mean sometimes you get a 6 digit score without trying very hard, but it still takes a good string of combos if you want to stay the top of your friends leaderboards as everyone has the same benefit.

 

In some ways it feels more balanced as I have gotten a wider range of scores now than I did before.

 

The only complaints I have about the update is the bonuses on the jewels makes it harder to make out which colour they are, but more important the game locked up my Vita earlier.  My Vita has only ever locked up once before and never on TOM before.  So I hope this update has not made the game unstable.

 

Oh there is one other thing, the "Earn enough experience to level up" trophy is not unlocking for me even though I have leveled up twice since the new update.  Yet Dark Lord and Sandstorm unlocked instantly after my first game, registering that I had already met those requirements.

 

Unrelated to the update though, what does leveling up the totems do?  Level 2 you still have to trigger it twice to activate, it still seems to do exactly the same thing.  Does it give you more points for doing it?

Level up the totems affects more items.

eg Red Totem Level 1 will only blow up 1 item. Red Totem Level 2 will blow up 2 items.

But lets say I use the green totem, its already giving me EVERY gem from the board when I trigger it.

 

Is it that you need to use a leveled up totem if you are using a related bonus, such as the one to increase the number of gems on the board at the same time?

I'm happy with the update and it has made the game better for me and trophies is a bonus........

I had increased my highest score from 200,000+ to 432,000 and was quite chuffed as I was the top of my friends list for a day....... only to find I had been stumped by an amazing score by antboy71 that will take some beating

The update has broken TOM Blitz. It's now no longer a portable game, it's a game where you need to be connected to the PS Network.

No more giving it a quick blitz (sorry) when travelling.

Why do you need to be onnected to the Internet? It's always been like that but you don't have to stay connected to play, just to share you results.

Let me clarify. To start with when playing the game, you did NOT need to be connected to the PS network. As you have correctly stated it would not upload your score until you were connected.

 

NOW you need to be connected BEFORE you can even start playing and if you are not connected it will not let you play.

Funny, I played mine with no Internet connection after updating the game.

I'm disappointed with the new requirement to be connected to the network just to play but the game has been vastly improved overall, i got the trophy for a seven figure score with my highest score so far being over 39 million, im 45th on the global leaderboards, only problems i've had are the game has crashed once, and the trophys for a 10X score multiplier and leveling up didnt unlock, i've gone from level 18 to level 38 in three days and my best jewel count was 72 in one game, with the 10X multiplier that was 720 crystals.

Your score needs to be greater than 1mil before the clock runs out. If your score creeps over the 1mil mark after the clock has run out (during the final flurry of explosions etc) then you don't get the trophy. Hope that helps.

 

On a different note why on earth does this game have trophys when the trophys don't have any affect on your PSN (gamer level/percentage). Is this a mistake that will be addressed or will the earned trophies never have an affect on our PSN gamer level (or whatever it's called)
