some of the nuances of the scoring system still elude me.
From the steam page
Tips For Getting Highscores
Earn points by destroying enemies and collecting Stage Star items. The higher your Combo Multiplier, the more you earn. Destroying enemies and crates add to the Combo Multiplier.
For a top scoring run kill as many enemies as possible and avoid dying and using bombs - use FOCUS shot to earn extra bombs and pick them up for a score bonus!
No-bombing gives big impact on score, as does having as high bomb count as possible.
Aaaah, so it looks like killing enemies with the focus shot is what makes the bomb gauge fill up? So it's pretty basic
- don't die
- don't bomb
- kill as many enemies as you can with the focus shot
- try not to kill the bigger enemies until you're right up close to earn more stars
- collect all the stars on the ground if you can
- try to kill all the enemies
I don't think there's any timer on the combo, it doesn't reset when you bomb, maybe it does when you get hit.
I might shove this on later today and see if I can beat that ps4 score.
