The dangers of shopping...
So I finally managed to get my sister playing this game and she's coming along pretty well. After many hard hours of monster-bashing she finally defeated Matilda in Spooky Forest and went for a shopping break to spend her 450-some coins. Unfortunately, the shop is programmed so that the default button is No if you can't afford something, and Yes if you can. After a while of looking at things she couldn't afford, and thus deducing (incorrectly) that the default action was always "No", she looked at the Record Book by accident (which she could afford) and quickly pressed the fire button to dismiss the dialog without realizing that the default option had mysteriously changed to Yes! Now she has spent almost an entire world's worth of coins (over 5 hours of playtime for her) on something she didn't intend to buy, and she's probably going to be too discouraged to play the game for a while until I convince her again.

IMO, the default option should always be No; it might annoy some people, but it would prevent "shopping accidents" like this one from happening. Not that it's going to happen unless a bunch of other patch-worthy problems crop up.

This was our first (and pretty much only) complaint with Supreme With Cheese. The exact same thing happened to me. After that, my sons and I were very careful and watchful when we were in the Mall.

when that happened to me I got angry and made a level with a super coin and candle and an exit. I just repeated it a few times and got more coins. It's cheating but I like spending

That happened to me too. Every time I blow it I have to play "Who doesn't want to be a Moron!" a couple times.

Making your own levels for tons of points doesn't work anymore, they have to be submitted and posted on the site to count towarsd your coin total. Although if I remember correctly, the secret level in Out Back is really good for that... It made it easy for me to get the statue! :shock:
