I've been seeing a lot of posts where people are asking for help with Fireworks, and I understand why. Fireworks is probaly the best way to earn credits, if, and only if, you're good at it. I myself am not a master at it, usually ranging from 235,000 to 250,000 a game, but I'm getting there! And I'd love to give all my tips and tricks on how to play a better game, and get a higher score.
Tip #1: Like in all sports and games, be a good sport. Never say "I sock at this game. Go easy on me.", or "I'm on a quest, let me win." or something to that affect, because chances are, people are going to try even harded to beat you. Plus, it's very annoying. All you need to say is Good luck!, and your set!
Tip #2: If your not that good, try not to act like an expert. Your goal is to hit every firework, not get flawless. I guarentee, that your score will be higher, if you hit every firework and get goods, and awesomes, than if you miss half of them trying to get flawless.
Tip #3: Stress equals bad playing. If you are doing bad, then you are doing bad. It is just a game. Relax like the score means nothing, and you will do great! Also, don't keep glancing down at your score every two seconds. Your concentration will be cut in half.
Tip#4: Listen to the music. OK, it's not a sycronized as DDR, but the music does help. I always do better with the music on than with it off.
Tip#5: Never move your cursor into the bottom half of the screen. Why? Because the fireworks never explode down there, except for maybe a few times toward the end. And never follow your firework with your cursor. It makes it hard to see when the firework turns to a star, and you might miss it. Just keep it at the top, and your thumb/wrist loose, and you should be able to hit them all.
Tip#6: On the final blowout, when they they throw up like 10 fireworks, you should try to hit them all, but, if you wait about a second before you go and explode them, you should get them all awesomes, instead of goods.
Tip#7: Don't feel bad that other people may have a way higher score than you do, and don't laugh at the people whos scores are lower than yours. It's just sort of mean to others and yourself.....EXCEPT there is one exception. Have you ever looked at the all time high scores at the vmk website? 347,000!!!!! How does anyone do that!?!? Infact I counted how many fireworks there are in a game, and there are about 355. That means the highest possible score is 355,000. That means to get 347,000, you have to hit about 98% of them! That means like all flawless and very close to each firework being 1000 points! How can anyone even get 347,000? It's impossible! NO it's inhuman! Inhuman it is! We have some aliens lurking about on vmk.. You better watch out..
ANYWAYS, hope these tips helped you improve your fireworks game on vmk if you felt you were doing bad, and yeah this was long, but I have a tendency to write long things. And remember, for every score you see that makes you go Wow!, there a person looking at your score and saying Wow! ..Oh, and watch out for those aliens...
