Sorry to the MODS if you feel this is in the wrong board. Feel free to move as you wish.
What is Humanoid Space Race? Check it out here if you wish! http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/686835
As per request of a few players I wanted to give detailed data on the inner-workings of the game such as how points are exactly calculated and so forth. This info is more for the person who likes the game and really wants to know the best way to gain a high score.
I feel like putting data like this in the actual game will be annoying for most players so I'll post it here and have a link to this in the Author comments.
Feel free to comment on anything you wish about the game here or write a review. I take all feedback very serious and really do care what you guys think!
Anyway, here we go.
Points: All things destroyed give points. Stomp kills give bonus points
Small green ships: Kill: 20 pts Stomp Kill: extra 10 pts
Medium yellow ships: Kill: 100 pts Stomp Kill: extra 100 pts
Large Yellow ships: Kill: 550 pts Stomp Kill: extra 250 pts
Yellow ground enemy: Kill: 50 pts Stomp Kill: extra 25 pts
Grey ground enemy: Kill: 300 pts Stomp Kill: extra 100 pts
Boss: The Boss score bonus starts at 10,000 pts and goes down by 100 every second. After you destroy it, the bonus points are added to your total score.
Point deductions when you get hit. I wanted to do all of these calculations as a % making things easier but it screwed with my score attribute. You would end up seeing a score like 2345.2222222233. So I ended up making it additive.
Also, you might not see your score go down when you get hit because you probably are killing something at the same time worth more points than the deduction.
Getting Hit on the first wave: -75 pts killed on the first wave: -300pts
Hit on the second wave: -250pts killed on the second wave: -500pts
Hit on the third wave: -600pts killed on the third wave: -1000pts
Hit on the forth wave: -800pts Killed on the forth wave: -1500pts
Hit on the fifth wave: -1000pts Killed on the fifth wave: -2000pts
Hit on the boss: -500pts Killed on the boss: -1000pts
There are less deductions on the boss because there is not as much opportunity to gain points.
Guns: Every point invested: +1 damage per shot/ Bullet size +15%/ Bullet Speed +10% Fire Rate +10%
Grenades: Every Point invested: +95 damage/ +4 grenade capacity
Stomp: Every Point invested doubles the stomp damage
Lives: Every point invested grants +1 to lives. Getting destroyed in this game really hurts your score and you have wait to re spawn. You could miss valuable power ups while dead so this can have it's advantages.
Speed: Grants an extra 27% speed bonus. You wont notice a huge increase with the first point but after that YOU GO FAST
Wow that is a lot of info!
Thanks for everyone who is playing!!!
