Quoted from OlDirty:
What strategies do you have for AFM? At the beginning i fully concentrate on the three main saucers to get an extra ball. After thoese i try to get the "normal multiball" and "total annihilation" and try to destory the main saucer during it. It's just too risky with only one ball to hunt the ship, because you need too many shots. I also try to combine the martian multiball with the normal multiball to shoot more martian targets. My high score is just around 14Mia in a 5 ball game. Few weeks ago i saw a guy doing over 70Mia in a 5 ball game
I always make sure I'm hitting the flippers so when the ball goes through the in lanes/out lanes the insert is not lit. When you complete them 10 times it lights extra ball.
For the standard rules I actually feel the pin is too easy.
I ruled the universe twice within 2 months of ownership on 3 ball. Around 38 billion total points, don't forget this is a high scoring game so you are most definitely in the billions.
During strobe multiball if you hit the triple target bank 10 times it lights extra ball.
You can shoot EB during video mode for another extra ball. Also you have 1 Martian bomb during video mode which also helps.
I do love that I get close to ruling the universe but that's it normally. I think I only completed it 3 times total. It makes you come back for more.
