Number Factor stuff

So... at the moment, I am working on a new mode of play and do some minor adjustments, like re-positioning the power meter/buttons in Power Mode.  I gotta do this because the new mode also using some powers.

I am sure a few of you may be wondering about this in Number Factor as well: "How does the scoring work with matching discs? 7 to 39 to 109 and onward..."

 

I am sure it does seem confusing.  The first initial matches give 7 points, and then on Chain X 2, all discs give 39 points... and on X 3, each disc is worth 109... and so on.  Well, here is the equation I use.

7 * ( [CURRENT CHAIN] ^ 2.5 )

The ^ symbol means power.  The current chain to the power of 2.5, then multiplied by 7.  Then the final number is rounded down.  Example:

[X] = Chain number.

7 * ( [1] ^ 2.5) = 7 * (1) = 7

7 * ( [2] ^ 2.5) = 7 * (5.6) = 39.5 = 39

7 * ( [3] ^ 2.5) = 7 * (15.5) = 109.1 = 109

...

7 * ( [12] ^ 2.5) = 7 * (498.8) = 3491.8 = 3491

etc.

 

This is how it works across all modes with scoring.  So, if you want to shoot for huge points, get them chain reactions going!
