Novae Marathon is a variation of Novae sharing the same mechanic..

***** NEW *****

Drop the tiles to constitute groups which must achieve critical size to be absorbed by the Core.

Simple ? Apparently so. Let's see how long you can keep going!

RULES
- Place incoming colored tiles with the objective of constituting groups of the same color.
- Tiles are attracted inward, toward the Core in a clockwise spiral.
- A group of same tiles is absorbed when it is in contact with the Core and have reached a critical size.
- Remaining tiles then get rearranged, forming a new configuration.

Game is over when no group can no longer be absorbed.

GOALS
Establish the largest score and reach the highest level.

Define your own strategies to achieve the goals you set for yourself:
- pass to the next level, with prudence,
- improve the scores via combos and bonuses, with a maximum risk.

Use the Threshold Levels to validate your progress.

Pretty decent so far. A minimalistic match 4. I like the occasional NASA chatter, definitely adds to the space theme.

So, how does scoring work? Is the player awarded any points based on debris at the end of a level or is it just cleared out?

Thank you for your comment !

Well, I don't want to reveal all the scoring tips! But here are few indications :
score is increased by groups removal, combos, level clearing and some special events.
