You might be wondering why the circle is highlighting tiles throughout the game. The circle indicates the tile you have to match against; once you match all of the patterns on a tile, you get to pick two new patterns (tiles). Try Pattern Match today!
OK - not an expert at this game by any means, but what I have noticed about scoring is that it seems to value *speed* as much as accuracy, although you do get a "chain" bonus as well - when you make multiple correct picks in a row, the bonus stacks up.
When a tile is "highlighted" you will want to look at that tile specifically and try to match *one* feature of that tile in the remaining tiles. So, try to match the main flower pattern, or the background or (on the later levels) the small center "button" tile.
Any tips on how the scoring works? Do you get more points for matching multiple patterns within each design? Or is speed more important? No matter what "theory" I use, I can't seem to break through my highest scores.
Could you answer not2senileyet question about scoring tips? What is a multimatch, for example? Is it several matches sequentially, or matching more than one pattern in a tile? And how many points do you get for one multimatch???
Still trying to figure out how to get multimatch points. Perhaps if no answer several of us together can figure it out. I don't think it is for sequential matches. I'm guessing it is when you match two tiles which have two or more identical features - background and one layer of design, a center 'jewel' and a design, etc. I cannot play a level and exactly tie the multimatch points to what I play, but that seems the trend to me. And it appears to give you 500 points per multimatch. Anyone else have ideas on this?
My strategy was to try to get exact matches off the board first, however that doesn't seem to give me any higher scores than just matching randomly as fast as I can. We're missing something here but I can't figure out what it is. My highest score was 150,770 one time, and I haven't been able to get close to that since. I don't know what I did right that one time, but obviously I haven't duplicated it since lol.
