Tips To Get A High Score
- Remember where the enemies spawn
- Chain enemy eliminations
- Take advantage of the traps
- Clear the game in under 2 minutes 30 seconds
- Try not to switch Gigasses to save time
The points listed above are what you must take note of & remember in order to achieve a high score. You will be able to achieve an A Rank if you earn 10 million points or more.!
Remember Enemy Spawn Points
At the start of the game, enemies will spawn in front of you. These are the positions of enemies in the map. This will help you build up a chain combo to rack up your score.
Destroy The Glass Floor For Group 1
Destorying the glass floor for the first group of enemies will drop them to the Spark Trap. If the trap turns on, you will deal massive damage to all the enemies, & can instantly destroy them!
Use Heat Traps For Groups 2 and 3
The 2nd & 3rd groups will spawn near Heat Traps. Shoot at the Heat traps to instantly get rid of these enemies.
Use Traps In The Environment To Instantly Beat Enemies
While playing Verum Rex, you will notice that there are things that you can use in the environment to easily eliminate more Gigasses. The three traps you can use are the Crane, Heat, and Spark trap shown above.
Do Not Be Choosy With Your Enemies
Even if Gigasses with Purple icons give more points, they may take longer to beat. The chain for beating enemies will only last for 10 seconds until it expires. Keep this in mind when defeating Gigasses in order to sustain the chain!
Prime Enemies Give More Points
Prime Enemies are Gigasses which have purple icons to mark them. Prime enemies have a larger health pool, making them tougher to bring down, but will reward you with more points when done successfully!
Use The Spark Trap To Damage Multiple Enemies
You will find the Spark trap at the center of the lower level of the stage. It activates at regular intervals, and damages anything standing on it. Try to lead as many enemies as you can into the Spark Trap.
Lure The Golden Gigas Into Traps
After defeating a number of enemies, a cutscene will trigger to show that the Golden Gigas has appeared. Since it has a huge health pool, lure it to different traps to deal significant damage!
Destroy The Glass Floor To Trap The Golden Gigas
Destroy the glass floor on the upper level of the center of the map to force the Golden Gigas onto the Spark Trap. Fight it there while waiting for the Spark Trap to turn on. You will know the Spark Trap hits when the enemy is covered in a white light.
Damage Of The Spark Trap To The Golden Gigas
The images above show the damage the Spark Trap does to the Golden Gigas in a single hit!
[CAUTION] The Spark Trap Also Damages You
Make sure that you are not on the Spark Trap when engaging enemies since it will also damage you, and take away a big portion of your health.
