When you add new score to list, you always need to sort them, and store the top five. This is what the strategy you need to follow.

I'm sorting with this way but it doesn't work, it will replace all the score with the highest score instead of sorting it.

That AppendValueToList block looks wrong.

If the value under tag scorelist is a simple list of scores, why would you want to add a single element consisting of the entire scorelist to it?
Isn't that what the append block does?

AppendValueToList( tag , itemToAdd )

Append a value to the end of a list atomically. If two devices use this function simultaneously, both will be appended and no data lost.

And the sort procedure for testing purpose I just do for index 4 and index 5 and what the result is instead of updating the new high score to index 4 and set the old lower score to index 5, it updates both index 4 and index 5 to the latest high score.
