Phlinx – King Tut’s Pup Badge
Use 10 power-ups
Filed under: pogo games app
No glitches on the Phlinx challenge here. Badge is cool.
EEK. 2 phlinx challenges :( I don’t much care for the iphone version. I don’t really have tips for this, only that using a stylus may help to guide the lines better (I find if I use my finger, the target line always moves). Good luck to all with this one.
I can’t believe Pogo gave us 2 Phlinx challenge in the same week! The pc challenge doesn’t bother me too much, but I don’t care for the iPhone version either. Are we ever going to get a WCS on the iPhone?
Just for the record, the multipliers apparently don’t count as powerups. Otherwise no problems with this badge.
Even with a Stylus Phlinx is very awkward to play on I-Pod, not sure why I do these little challenges since you cant do anything with the little badges some of which are displayable
Took 3 spins, easy enough.
Spins, High Scores, New Ranks and the Badges are always awarded perfectly with the Phlinx game I have found.
#3 – Cmw71903, I agree. A World Class Solitaire challenge would be great.
Here’s hoping for rank badges perhaps… The ranks are adding up with all these weekly challenges!
Silly question, but how do we use the power ups?
Got it. Even made rank 6 while doing it.
I look forward to playing it later tonight!
The power ups kick in automatically. since there is no time limit you can aim your shot pretty easily by putting your finger on the midpoint of the color line and take your time positioning the x. Also when you have the flashing stones, wait until the ones you have aimed at flash. If you are able to drop stones with that shot it will also take out nearby stones as well, any color.
Yes, as long as you release a power up, you will automatically use it on the next turn. I just got badge and managed it in 2 spins. I’d love to see a WCS game for iphone too. Still waiting on a FCS challenge though!
Thank you :-)
I see this one is acting up as well.
I had 8/10 and shut down my device and now I only have 2/10.
I can’t stand Phlinx and I now have 2 challenges plus a long personal to get out of the way with the challenge. Bummer. Thank goodness the iPhone version is easier to get… Good luck all.
Try not to worry about it. Go back into game, get 2 more power ups and see if you get the badge pop up for you. If not, after you get your 2 more power ups, select go to games, then on the games selection window, at the bottom of the screen go to your profile, then select badges. Hopefully you will see the badge there :) (I’ve had lots of miscalculations with pogo wilth all their games on my device, but ultimately, the badge has been there.)
I never had a badge ” to get out of the way” as I either played the game or didn’t. Since I detest Phlinx, they can keep these badges and ergo, nothing to get out of the way and life is even easier and better
I have collected about 20 powerups (I am not counting multipliers) and her profile is still at 6 of 10. I have done the log out/log in trick several times.
I wll try on my own iTouch now and see if I can get it there.
Joe #17 – I’ve done 3 of these so far and have to sign out and back in after every round. And both my names and passwords are long…have spent more time doing that than the damn badges.
1) The multiplier stones are NOT considered powerups by Pogo.
2) For this specific badge, keep track of how many powerups you have achieved. If you think you have enough, powercycle your device.
I had to powercycle (turn off and then turn on) my Apple device to get “credit” for the badge. I spent two hours (and earned two ranks) after completing the badge on one of our accounts.
Sorry y’all are having problems.
This weeks badge just popped up for me when I got it.
I didn’t have to sign out and back in again to receive it
