I've never been one to get into app games but this is addictive!

Anyone lose struggling with an online/app game obsession?

I just downloaded from my iPad App Store. It's free and it connects to your Facebook account so you can see how you compare to your friends. I'm on level 134 and its tricky.

Isn't that the game that a couple of kids managed to run up huge $$$ on their parents account? Watch you don't bankrupt yourself!

It is free but you can buy extras to make the game a little easier but you don't have to.

I've not spent a penny on the game as I'm a tight ass bu I do know people who have spent a fair amount of money.

My hubby is pretty obsessed with the game Hill Climb. Hunk we need to get a life!

I hear that Leann Rimes went to rehab for twitter addiction. Now that is sad.

Yeah, I'm also totally addicted to this. I'm on level 147 now and I can't stop playing even though I've been stuck on it for ages. I know so many people who can't stop playing!

I've never heard of this game, I'll check it out!

I'm currently addicted to an online pictionary type app game called Charadium. It's sooo good.

Wow! 135 and 133! I can't get past 23 at the moment, but to be fair, I only started playing on Saturday

I know how addictive it is, and I hate having to wait for new "lives" when my friends aren't online to help! I guess I'm becoming addicted too!

I'm on level 149

It's honestly the last game I ever thought i'd get hooked on. What bugs me is that you'll be ticking along nicely, knocking off levels here and there and you'll get to one particular level that will quite literally take you weeks to get past. I think it's because it really wants you to buy add-ons which I refuse to do.

There are videos of every level on YouTube but the nature of the game is such that they're just videos - there's no set solution to each level.

I have been stuck on level 182 for a few weeks now, you got bombs & have to get 30,000 points in under 2 minutes. It really boils my pi$$, but is so damn addictive.
