Thanks Simon and Scott - you guys rule! I'm glad you're enjoying it.

And good call on the feedback, Simon - the left / right thing had me puzzled (glad it was user error - I thought I checked that!). The sign is indeed supposed to light up only intermittently, like an almost-burned-out bulb, kind of thing.

I'll look into changing the banjo music speed - you're right, that would be cool. :)

I thought of something I could give as a Motley Fool exclusive secret. Not a huge deal, but fun nonetheless.

I was working on the game one Saturday, and had the iPad connected to my computer. I was on the breakfast bar at home, and my son (then 6 years old) came over to watch. I was deep in code and not really paying attention, until he said "Dad, it's broken."

I looked over, and he's stabbing down at the screen, and I'm thinking "Oh, sh!t, the buttons aren't working? What the heck is wrong? That was working like 2 seconds ago."

I look more closely, and he's tapping all over the screen.

"What are you doin, bud?" I ask.

"It's broken. You can't squish the fly!"

And thus was born the entire minigame - it was originally a secret Easter Egg for my son to play with. :)
