iPhone Game EatWillGrow Posts High Scores to Twitter

kode80 has released a new iPhone arcade game, EatWillGrow, that stores and retrieves high scores via Twitter. The object of the game is to guide Blog as he eats food, growing slightly larger with each bite, while avoiding mines. Gas mask power-ups slow down or speed up time; the former makes eating lots of food easier while the latter shrinks Blob slightly but makes it tougher to avoid mines.

EatWillGrow (US$0.99) uses Twitter's search engine to save scores -- each tweet includes a screenshot of the game's last moment, the player beaten, and the point difference between the two scores. Players can view most recently tweeted scores or all-time high scores; the game only finds scores sent directly from it, minimizing the chances of players fabricating high scores.
