Jupiter 2

Erm, did anyone here get SUPER on this stage? I collected everything, got all the bonuses (no damage, perfect waves, exit portal, final multiplier) and I am still missing 5070 points. Am I doing something wrong?

PS beat the level a couple of times now. The same thing.

The strangest thing is that I somehow managed to get more previously without collecting everything.

Seconded - both possible and tricky lol, moving refraction clouds are almost as awkward as those damn mirrors!

This level destroyed my brain.. Seriously. Am I doing the right thing by trying different combinations of x2/x3 etc points?

There's nothing tactical required on this one, just collect everything as it appears and you should be fine. There are one or two tricky points, but try your best!

Wait, what? I did collect everything like 10+ times now. That's why I created the topic. Am I missing something? I suppose I don't fully get the way the points are calculated.

I am definitely doing something wrong. Just did the black hole in jupiter 4, collected every single light seed, got all the bonuses and I am missing a whopping 32600 points. Can anyone clarify the way the points are calculated in the levels?

PS I have all stars on all previous levels. I am very confused lol.

I'm happy to give you a quick explanation!

So there are 3 things that can give you points in the game:
-Collecting Light Orbs
-Tracing Waves
-Collecting a Light Ring after you've already maxed your multiplier (this doesn't happen too often though)

And there are 2 things that add multipliers to your score:
-Color multiplier if you use a Light Ring to match the color of whatever it is you're collecting
-Speed multiplier

Whenever you collect everything in a given sequence, you'll speed up. The faster you're going, the more points you earn for anything that gives you points.

You say you collected all of the Light Orbs, but did you get 100% on the Wave traces? Those are worth lots of points, and contribute to earning the speed multiplier. If you're missing the 100% traces, that'll definitely affect your score.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

The wave traces also give bonus points at the end. Well yes, I got 100% on all the waves and I still miss the same number of points. HOWEVER, I somehow managed to get more points by missing some light orbs I'll upload a video on youtube tomorrow. Right now I can finish the level and get everything with my eyes closed)

Well I certainly can't claim that there is 0% chance of a bug, but I do know that I've got 100% on every level in the game multiple times. If you're able to provide video evidence of a bug, then it should be easy for me to fix so that would be fantastic!

Sorry you're having trouble though, I do admit that what you're experiencing does seem pretty strange. Here's one thing you can look for to see if something else may be amiss: if you ever see anything at the top of the screen other than "SUPER" then that means you missed something. And if it doesn't visually appear that you're missing anything, it could be something strange happening like the Venus 3 bug that was previously mentioned on here.

That bug had to do with resolution, so perhaps something is funky on a very specific resolution? What resolution are you using? I can try that out and test it out to make sure.

Thanks!

I do always get SUPER at the top of the screen. Btw, got the fraps done, I'll upload the video a bit later.

PS 1920x1200

PSS I actually got SUPER on the level before the video but that doesn't change the fact that in 99% of the runs I still miss points.

PSSS After doing another ~ 20 runs of the level it seems that every now and then I get points out of nowhere ;o
