4. Scoring - The Basics
It's all about getting far and scoring high. When you first encounter a new challenge, your only
priority might be to survive long enough to see the next level. However, you will later want to
revisit easier levels to try and place blocks in trickier arrangements that yield a higher score.
In general, the score value of an arrangement is related to how difficult it was to obtain. A
simple three-in-a-row vertical stack is the easiest arrangement and earns you just five points. A
diagonal five-in-a-row is much harder to get and will yield a much higher score - 2500 points! In
general, vertical three-in-a-rows are great to clear the board or to eliminate colours that are no
longer needed, but they do not help you in attaining a place on our global high score list.
Here are the basic score values for each arrangement:
Other Scoring Opportunities
Chain Bonus: Create a chain reaction to increase the score for any arrangement. See the next
section for details.
Combo Bonus: Complete two or more stacks at once to increase the score for any arrangement.
See the next section for details.
Score Multiplier: New points earned will at all times be multiplied by this value. See more
details in the score multiplier section.
Time Bonus: Receive five bonus points for every second left on the clock when the level is
completed. Warning: if your time runs out you end up losing points quickly!
Strike Bonus: At the end of each fifth level all strikes are cleared. However, if you've had less
than three strikes you also receive 2000 bonus points for each clear spot.
