Tilt To Live Scoring

Hey TA'ers
Okay, I downloaded TTL and as per usual with any game I'm eager to unlock new stuff. A lot of the achievements require that you reach a certain score, but I've found the scoring really hard to understand. How does it work?
Thanks

You get a pathetic number of points for killing dot one, but if you then kill dot 2 within X amount of time, you form a combo, and dot 2 is worth more then dot 1. And so on, and so forth, until if you get your combo big enough, you are earning well over 1,000 pts per additional dot.

I am not sure exactly how long you have to add to the combo, but its not long...like 2 or 3 seconds tops. You get more points per each dot added to the combo, but I cant tell you exactly how the progression goes.

Basically, you can kill 1,000 dots in a game and get 300,000 pts if you dont get a meaningful combo, or you can kill 1,000 dots and get 1.5 million points (or potentially a lot more) if you have a fairly nice combo in there.

You are handicapped until you unlock spike shield. Look at the achievements and do the easy ones.

The final weapon, lighting shield, doesnt help all that much. But you want spike shield bad.

Thanks for this. I'm trying to do the easy ones but it's a hard game! Can you look on your achievements please and tell me which wep is the spike shield? Thanks

First, insta-suicide on the first dot, thats an achievement. Second, stay alive for 50 seconds without killing a dot, until another achievement pops up.

Those are the only 2 that I tried to do specifically. Beyond that, if you try to get a good score the other achievements necessary for unlocks should probably take care of themselves. That said, if you get desperate, there might be other achievements you can target. For instance, I think there might be a persistence one for playing a lot of games in one session . . . anyway, I dont recall, you'll have to check.

You should probably already have ice unlocked already. Dont get too excited when you unlock vortex. Its not really all that useful and sometimes does more harm then good. Next is spike shield, which is by far and away the best power-up. After that is lighting shield, which is good, but doesnt do much to boost your scores by itself -- it lasts too short to make all that much difference.

Yes, and I already told you how to get it

Avoid dots for 50 seconds. That its pretty easy to do speaks volumes to how boring normal level is once you have everything unlocked!

The arms race achievements are pretty easy, just go around triggering the red nukes once you trigger 30 you get one achievement, then 50 for the next achievement. Then basically its combos try for a 100x combo then progress from there. I must admit it gets easier once you have the weapons unlocked.
