So if you're planning on doing achievements in your game, that's an incentive to play your game and collect those points because it adds to the player's overall score. Based on my experience, I would say that there are a few 'achievement whores' on Android :)


Aboslutely, not suggsting OpenFeint doesn't have it's place. I just think scoreoid is an excellent (truely) cross-platform system that's extremely neat :) All depends on your need / target.

I'll have to take a look at scoreoid. A lightweight leaderboard is always a useful thing to have :)

Regarding achievements - the highest score in Bus Jumper used to be in the few hundreds range. I have no idea why anyone would play that game that long, but anyway. I added an achievement for level 2000, and within days, people had crossed that. Even though the achievement is only unlockable in the paid version. That's all I have to go on. I haven't found any way to see stats on unlocked achievements.
