  • My game score or progress isn't saving between sessions!

So, you played up to level 3-4, closed the game, and came back to continue it later, but when you launched it this time, it started you back at level 1-1?  There are a few possibilities.  The simplest is that the game wasn't closed so much as the computer got turned off suddenly mid-game, which would prevent any data from being saved.  The second simplest is that you may have clicked on the "X" at the upper corner of the game to close the program instantly rather than exiting through the Main Menu and choosing Quit.  

But if you know you exited the game the long way and clicked every button and said Yes to every prompt, and your progress still didn't save, then it's probably a matter of a very simple change to the Compatibility settings for your game.  The steps are just slightly different depending on whether your Operating System is Windows Vista or Windows 7.
 
Windows Vista: 
  1. Right click the shortcut to your game (if you don't use a shortcut, right click the .exe file).
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Compatibility tab.
  4. Click the box marked "run this program as an Administrator."
  5. Click ok.
Windows 7:
  1. Right click the shortcut to your game (if you don't use a shortcut, right click the .exe file).
  2. Click "Run as Administrator."

This should keep your game progress from being lost the next time you play!  We're sorry for any frustration.  The best part about replaying levels, though, is that you'll almost certainly score higher the next time through!
