After playing Flux a few times you will start to feel confident
and your scores will start to climb. You significantly improve
upon your first few scores. You want to show these scores
off, proclaiming to the world that you are a true mastermind.
So you fire up the Uplink, choose the score that makes you
the most proud and click the "Add Score" button.
And in a matter of moments, you are presented with a screen
that informs you that your scores are not impressive enough
to be submitted at the present time.
What?!? It can't be! There
must be some kind of mistake. That score of yours was amazing,
how could it not even be in the top 10? So you click on the
"View Scores" button and you are presented with
all of the scores that did make the cut. You scroll down to
the puzzle you were playing and look at the scores. Whoa!

four times that of yours! You scroll down a bit more to see
what it would take to even make the chart. Ahh... 10th place...
this is better. You are only a few thousand points off that
So you go back into Flux, now
armed with a goal in your mind. You play a few more levels,
and yes! you are greeted with a score that easily takes
over 10th place. You jump out of Flux, go to the Uplink, submit
that score and hallelujiah! you made 7th! Now the world
will take notice, they will see that you are on the rise.
Conquering 1st place is only a matter of time.
Such is the Uplink. You will
go head-to-head with some of the best puzzle minds in the
world. Even the creators of the game will be competing against
you. With such great rivals, it can get a little intimidating
at times. But there's nothing like telling your friend to
check out the high score tables after you've just bumped her
down a spot - however, chances are that she's already seen
the outcome and is playing Flux, determined to repay you the
