Level two’s game play is more difficult but players reap more reward if it’s beaten. In less than 60 seconds, players must complete a four light a sequence. If a player ‘wins’, they are given an i-code which gives them access to the World leader board.

If you don’t, you’ll find yourself ripping it out of the hands of your gift’s recipient so you can feed your addiction.
