    VMK Castle Fireworks game

    so how do they differentiate between good and flawless? How do you get your fireworks to be flawless- is it a matter of timing, or getting your mose exactly over the target?

    i think that to get a flawless it is based off of timing. it is usually right before they go out that you can get a flawless. Right before they go out they usually blink really fast so that is right about the time to get a flawless.

    I may just be dumb, but my fireworks never seem to go off... I was going to sit and play with it later, but alas, I got home too late.

    I blame my wireless keyboard...it doesn't switch the the correct firework fast enough when they start going faster. I ahve the same problem playing toontown for the tug of war game. I may switch it out this weekend for a regualr to find it if it really is the keyboard or if I really suck that bad at it...LOL

    I played this today for the first time and took first place w/a score of over 100,000.

    So far this game is quite interesting.

    My best score is over 200K.

    Remember, in order to get the best scores from the fireworks, you have to change the firework indicator at the bottom of the screen to coincide with the firework you are exploding. Use the left and right arrow keys to do this.

    I have read on another forum that if you get a score above 200k you receive an additional guest room for yourself. Others have reported success with this. I have passed 200k the last few times I have plaved and have yet to recieve anything other than the 150 credits when I come in first.

    My observations...

    First, as to the game.

    The rewards are: over 200k and not winning the first time gets you a new castle dungeon room (and it's also then available for sale for you), as well as credits. Over 240k without winning gets you a Magic Pin - I believe it's the Fireworks magic. I've yet to top 225k, so I haven't done it personally. You also get the best per-game credit rewards possible by getting over 200k in a game, as you'll usually get the credits for that as well as the credits for reaching round five. Something like 90 credits total, I think.

    Gameplay:
    First, the levels don't change from game to game. The fireworks always launch in the same order. So you'll eventually start to remember patterns to difficult sequences. Second, it's far more important to make sure you hit *all* the fireworks rather than whether you get "awesome" or "flawless".

    As to the mechanics... when you hit a firework, you get points based on (assuming you used the right icon) how long the firework is along it's lifespan. The firework flashes increasingly quickly, then morphs into a star for a short time and then disappears. Points are 0-1000 per shot, falling between "OK" and "Flawless". "Flawless" is a VERY short window, roughly the last 2/3 to 1/2 of the time the star shows.

    Honestly, I'm about as technically good as I'll be at my 225k cap. The improvement I've been getting is mostly in remembering good combo sequences and making sure I'm prepped to get the best shot at each firework.
