Quoted from HookedonPinonics:
If you got 14.5 billion on the stay puft mode stacked with storage facility multiball, how do you explain the 12.5 billion earned on modes before and after stay puft? I am just curious for I have never seen any score close to this let alone see how this could be possible. Congrats though! That is an incredible score but I am missing something. I need to take your strategy to my game.
Also, with 5x per stay puft shot, that is only on the shot you choose to make 5x so only one shot was going at that rate. Would have been 250 million per shot. At the most isn't that mode like 10 shots? I am just not following how 14.5 billion was achieved during that mode.
Allow me to explain:
Bringing multi-ball into the picture slows down the timer. If you keep adding balls during multiball, the first sequence lasts almost indefinitely. Only after you do not hit any of the shots, or a ball is not trapped up in the pops, does you timer begin to count down. The stay puft shots go up incrementally. I can't even begin to explain how many shots you can nail during the 'free for all' period with multi-ball stacked. Throughout the other modes, I was able to start the PF multipliers by hitting the captive ball (2x running through a bunch of modes after). Didn't amount to much, but it made those couple of modes extremely valuable that I began. Skill shots, now heres the big thing; Skill shots are worth 10% of your score, PLUS AN ADDITIONAL 10%. My last skill shot alone netted me almost.....are you ready for this......4.6 BILLION! I was able to cash out on at least 3 skill shots of epic proportions with my now 2 extra balls remaining. I had got the last skill shot on camera, had my son hold the phone. I quickly drained after starting another mode, and ended right here. Wish I got to enter my initials, but the moment I said "alright, thats game over!", my son immediately said "OK, ILL TURN IT OFF DAD!". I love my son...although in that moment, he was not my favorite person, I'll post that video later...It was kinda funny.
**Edit: Stay puft has 3 sequences. First, amp up your multipliers by hitting Gozer repeatedly. Second, unlimited scoring all lit shots for 15-20 seconds, 3rd is to nail the rest of the shots, and finish the scene.
