Quoted from Nickrc3:
#922 - 1.61 - ... After two weeks on these settings, I achieved a 2M+ score and made it to Showdown...
Quoted from RipleYYY:
scoring "only" 2M points while having reached showdown, there's clearly something i can't understand
could you explain your tactic please ?
even if i see only one, quite simple, as to go to showdown : need to complete all DIALED IN letters > than need to collect 8 SIM cards > than need to play AND complete the 8 modes (OK, or less as could light SIM cards other way, also didnt forget the BIG BANG) > and if you do all this, that means you have multiplicators +1 between each modes > that means collecting more big points... !!!???
just tried here, and i reached 2M points while still playing my ball 2 (+ 2 extra ball following) with : only DIAL letters collected (didnt miss a mode)
this game ended at 4M points, with DIALED letters collected...
my test game seems to copy/paste this video of reaching showdown (!!! spoiler !!! dont watch if you dont wanna know !!!) :
i call myself a good player, but may be i'm missing something here ?
tanx in advance for some more explanations
after your post, than my asking point, and still no reply from you, i just did a quick/easy test, while removing the glass i just hit with hands the needeed switches to : light the phone (QED guy), start the mode (phone scoop), hit needeed switches to complete the mode, collect SIM card (in SIM scoop)
of course lets add some points for some "missed" switches... but in the other way i did NOT play MBs, not collect jackpot, not play secondary missions...
with the result, i still really can't understand how you have done what you are saying !?
of course, situation may change a little while playing others modes, or by collecting SIM cards not directly after a mode ends... but...
ok than, here're these results :
mode 1 : acid rain, D, 270.xxx pts
mode 2 : alien invasion, DI, 587.xxx pts
mode 3 : whirlwind, DIA, 891.xxx pts
mode 4 : EMP, DIAL, 1.258.xxx pts
mode 5 : eruption, DIALE, 1.805.xxx pts
mode 6 : meteor storm, DIALED, 2.496.xxx pts
mode 7 : earthquake, DIALE I, 3.416.xxx pts
mode 8 : flash fire, DIALED IN, 4.287.xxx pts
that's than 4.287.xxx pts even before playing SHOWDOWN... !
and you say you've reached & played it, and finally score (only) 2M+ ... there's a bug somewhere
