I like the first guy best I think, I'm gonna stick with him.
Actually, I like them all now that I've been trying them more. I think I like the cute wifey one best at the minute, gonna stick with her.
Am I doing it right, you just keep shooting the secondary weapon and I'm guessing enemies you hit with that, you kill them with the normal gun and you get loooot?
The secondary shot is actually the most important of the two basic weapons: Beside making a lot of damage, it triggers multipliers for your basic points.It works in this way: if you shoot a blast of the secondary shot and hit an enemy, you can land on it from 1 to 15 energy bars (the bar is located at the bottom of the screen, on the player's side of course). If you destroy the hit enemy with the main shot, you will also trigger a timer for your multiplier: depending on enemy's size, you can get from 0.5 to 2 seconds to continue the chain and keep having the said multiplier on score. Now, the only way to replenish said timer is to collect the bonus cubes.these cubes are released by larger (i.e. that take more hits to explode) enemies and by englufing bullets into explosions: if this happens, every bullet will be turned into a bonus cube. Now, when you land a secondary attack on an enemy and then destroy it with the main weapon, you will trigger the multiplier bonus: said multiplier is based on the level of energy that lands on the enemy. For instance, if you land a full level 15 secondary attack on an enemy and then destroy it, you will trigger a x16 multiplier :
the basic formula is Energy Bar+1=Multiplier Value, or EB+1=MV
The amount of energy in stock depends on your power level: you start at 7/15, then increase by +2 per full power-up. Now, one final note on the bonus cubes: every cube gives you back 0.1 seconds on your multiplier timer. The maximum timer, however, can never be higher than 2 seconds. Bonus cubes are also (obviously) worth points, hence the name: every bonus cube is worth 100 points x the MV, so big showers of cubes are worth a lot of points and will maintain the multiplier going. Now, cubes are also related to the bomb: let's see how.
Ugh, my head hurts. Right, I think I was on the right line, I can't take any of that shit in when someone trys to explain it to me, but it looks like I'm going in the right direction, I'll just feel it out while playing.
It's good this! I never really got into it, but it's clicking now.
edit: Best so far
Wow, stage 4 is so cool! First time I got there. Difficulty shoots up there mind. Will play again tomorrow.
It's really blown the cobwebs away playing this.
