Developer's Records

Does anyone know how to figure out what the goal is for the developer's record on each level? It's hard to know how to beat it when it seems to be a hidden goal...

I also wonder what it takes to beat Developer Record. Is it possible on all levels? I know the symbol is the laptop on the map showing that we beat the record.

The strategy guide gives you tips on how to beat the developers record. I'm working on that right now - slow going

Just got the Dev Record on Level 27, first one, and I think I know how it works, remembering previous games. It's not all time, it's total score. I finished that level with 6 seconds left to get gold and after all the bonus additions my total score was 48,521. During the level I kept collecting all the resources I could even though I didn't need them. Anyway, I may try earlier levels and see what happens. Would be nice to know what the records are, and by the way, you get a laptop icon next to the level icon.

Awesome, thank you! That's the last one I need for the developers record trophy (gold), now I know it is possible and not a glitch I'll keep trying :-D

Game Girl -- I could use your help. What do you need to do to beat the Developer's Record for the Coin Frenzy levels and the gate level 26? Please help me????

I beat the developer's record on level 3 with a score of 18460. Try collecting lots of extra resources?

Thanks Brookhaven - no luck yet, but I will keep on trying!

I am finding it difficult to find the balance between time and materials to get the magical score!

Does anyone know if it's actually POSSIBLE to get all the developer's records in the "extras" levels? I have been playing the same three levels (I believe they are 6, 8, and the final one) for weeks and cannot get them!
By the way, most of the levels will tell you how to get the developer's record. Just click on the blue question mark in the upper left corner. It gives you the step by step directions on how to do the level, and if there's anything special you need to do to beat the records. (Yet, even following these I can't get the ones I listed ).

I beat the developer's scores in all of the extra levels. The coin frenzy level took me the longest - they always do, because for me, they are the least logical.

Level 6 in China is possible - hard work but possible. But level 8??? Hespera - how did you do it?

And I have given up on the coin frenzy levels - I just havent got the patience and/or reflexes

Ooops! I made a mistake - level 6 IS a coin frenzy level and I have no idea of how to beat them. Sorry - my bad

I've actually beaten the developer's records on all the levels (in the extras) except the last one, now. I started beating them when I focused on the overall score as well, instead of just finishing the level as fast as I could. I sure wish I knew the trick for "The Spiral" though...I just can't seem to get it! I go as fast as I can, build and fully upgrade everything...but nothing works. It would be nice to know if I was at least close to beating it.

Earlyriser - on the spiral my results was 10.57 and 72.271. I didnt use any specific strategy - just full speed ahead After about 30 tries on level 8 is was not hard at all

If you have beaten level level 8 how did you do it?

If you are still stuck, I will replay the spiral and see what works

It is funny how different brains works in different ways - we are all stuck in different levels

I beat Extras level 8 with a score of 9:04 and 75020. A very important part of the scoring is picking up the coins from the idols, so build the idols as early as possible and pick up the coins frequently and don't forget the chest.

Also, get the diver shack built quickly and get him going. Use 50% and Time Bonus Frequently.

Hespera - thank you, thank you, thank you. The coins did the trick! I didnt think of that.

Sigh... now on to those horrible frenzy levels

Oh, I was so excited to finally beat the Spiral, that I didn't even pay attention to the final scores! However, after trying more than 20 times I decided to collect as many supplies as I could, hoping it would boost my score enough to win. I did all the tasks as quickly as possible, fully upgraded all buildings and the truck (I did this on all the levels I beat the developer's records) and while the waterboys were watering all the plants I kept hitting the fast shacks bonus, and the fast run bonus (I used the alter as soon as it was available, so there was almost always two bonuses going at once.) I also planted pink flowers in the water instead of the white ones they show in the guide, but I doubt that had anything to do with it lol.
I have beaten all but five of the records--all but one are the coin frenzy levels (ugh!).

As for level 8 in China, I agree with Hespera about the coins. I built the idols as quickly as possible and kept collecting the coins, and that's how I finally beat it.
