How to play


General rules. You are given one piece at a time that is guaranteed to be attachable to already placed pieces. 

       

NOTE: find the spot and attach it there to get th next piece


Goal. Your goal is to assemble 4 puzzles before the time runs out.



Scoring


Final Score = (Placed Bonus * Number of Pieces Placed) + (Chain Bonuses) + (Time Bonus * Seconds Left) + (Solved Puzzle Bonus * Number of Puzzles Solved)

Placed Bonus = 20

Each time a piece is placed correctly, the player scores 20 points.

Additional points may be awarded according to the current chain.

Chain Bonuses = 250/1,000

  • The chain starts at 0 and increases each time a piece is placed correctly.
  • Clicking incorrectly resets the chain to 0.
  • After chaining 5 pieces in a row, the player receives 250 bonus points.
  • After chaining 10 pieces in a row, the bonus is 1,000 and the chain resets back to 0.
  • The chain displays the number of pieces placed in a row plus one.
EXAMPLE: if the player has placed 4 pieces in a row without any mistakes it would read "CHAIN x5", and the 250 bonus points would be awarded after the next correct piece             

Time Bonus = 100

If all 4 puzzles are completed in time, the player receives points equal to their remaining time in seconds times 100.

Solved Puzzle Bonus = 2,000

When a puzzle is completed, the player is awarded 2,000 bonus points.

Max Possible Score: 33,000 (330 Seconds Remaining) + 3,280 (164 Pieces Placed) + 19,000 (Chained Every Piece) + 8,000 (Solved All Puzzles) = 55,280

Calculating max points from chains:

  • The largest possible size for the first puzzle is a 5 by 5 for a total of 25 pieces.
  • The first level starts with at least 1 piece already on the board, reducing the number of pieces to be placed to 24.
  • Each subsequent level increases the maximum possible rows and columns by 1.
  • Each subsequent level increases the minimum possible amount of pieces already on the board by 1.
  • Therefore, the maximum possible amount of pieces that can be placed is 164 = (5 * 5 - 1) + (6 * 6 - 2) + (7 * 7 - 3) + (8 * 8 - 4).
  • Also, adding the highest possible chain from each level results in a maximum chain bonus of 19,000 = 2,500 + 3,750 + 5,250 + 7,500.
