OMG, you`re right! Man, I don`t know how I didn`t get that the first time.

Actually, the highscores show the scores of anyone who has played to the end...

because the scores can be from 100 to -100 as it says, so it must be just for personal best...

I just typed a line from a Grateful Dead song into a binary translator, and then typed that into the game. Won by a good bit.

Sounds like everyone thought they were the computer. It is VERY hard to win. When I saw this I said "Hey, this looks easy. I`m going to try to make it". After I started to read all the more technical bits, it started to make my head hurt.

^^ Nope your idea is flawed, its looking for PATTERNS holding the 1 only lets the computer win very easy.

Just hold the 1 button and it expects you to eventually press a zero, that way you win. Really easy. Shouldn`t even get a 1.

It`s using some sort of algorithm (or whatever the right word is) to predict what you`re going to put next. So it`s looking for patterns in your choice of 0s and 1s.
