Take a look over at Halfbrick’s Twitter page, and you’ll see an awful lot of apologies with directions to contact email@example.com with GameCenter and/or OpenFeint usernames and a description of the problem for help. They should really grow some balls and get Paul Christoforo on the case, bro.
Users have reported losing achievements, stash gear, and levels. Jetpack Joyride is far from the first game to have users lose data over a GameCenter save.
I have witnessed my Smurf village get smurfed by GameCenter firsthand when playing Capcom’s The Smurfs’ Village earlier in the year.
This may also be the law of averages at work. Seeing as the game was free for well over a week, tons of new users who received an iOS device over the holidays tried it out.
Mo’ players, mo’ problems, yo.Tweet
