Default The HUD

I've gotten some questions about the basics of the HUD in the game and what everything means, so I posted explanations here.

Here's the image along with explanations of each element:



Score + Current Stars - Behind the score you will notice 3 faint stars. As you hit point thresholds in an Encounter, these stars will light up.

Time Bonus - The longer you take to blow through an Encounter, the less point bonus you get at the end (minimum is 0).

Time - The amount of time you've spent in that Encounter.

Health Meter - A measure of how many hit points you have left. If the meter goes all the way down, you're dead.

Pause Game - Press to pause the game.

Shield Meter - When you hold two fingers down and deploy the Shield, this meter takes the damage instead of your Health. Remember to catch incoming projectiles in the area around your fingers to let your Shield take less damage.

Selected Weapon - The weapon you are currently using.

Backup Weapon - The other weapon you have loaded out for this Encounter. Swiper horizontally on the guns to switch weapons.

Ammo - The number of bullets or other projectiles you have left in that magazine. Tap the Selected Weapon to perform a Manual Reload (which is WAY faster that a dry-fire Automatic Reload).

Killing Sprees - This number increments after every 5 kills you make without taking any damage. It leads to major score bonuses.

Multikills - From Double Kill all the way up to Killz0rz (for 10 kills), this number increments for every kill you make with less than 3 seconds between each.

Attack Notification - When an enemy is about to attack, you will see an exclamation mark above their head (or a fist if they're rushing in to melee you)

Threat Indicator - These buttons tell you how many enemies are to your left or right. If the buttons turns red, an attack from an offscreen enemy is imminent. Tapping the buttons controls the camera.

Mini-Map - This shows you where enemies are in proximity to you.

Hyper - This button deploys your Hyper power. During its cooldown, you will see the blue border fill up. When it is full, the power is ready to be deployed again.

---

If anything needs more explanation, let me know, and I'll update. Hope you guys that are in Ireland or the Philippines are having fun with the game. We submitted our 1st update to the game (with tons of optimizations and fixes) today. Should be live soon...

Not too long, ste86uk. We're doing rapid iterations of the game in the coming weeks and then we'll go live across everywhere. In the meantime, there's a decent amount of gameplay getting recorded over on the Twitch stream here.
