Bungee Ferret Tossing: General tips and scoring strategy

This was originally posted to the yyrGames forums on Aug 16, 2012 at 11:51 am.

Here's some info that will help you out. But ultimately, you'll need to rely on your skills to get those high scores!

Understanding Rank

A number called rank determines some big factors in this game:
- The number of enemies that appear. The higher the rank, the more enemies you'll see.
- The movement speed of both enemies and enemy projectiles. The higher rank goes, the faster all of that will be.
- The duration of the encounters at the end of Stages 4 and 5.

Falling: Basic game strategy

- Kick a lot. Kicking is the most effective way to cause blocks to move. So consider kicking first, before considering a different course of action.

- Blocks will slow their horizontal movement when on top of the floor, or another block. So the way to get a block to travel the furthest is by kicking it off another block so that it flies through the air. Because there is less friction, it will travel much further. This is illustrated in the attract mode demo.

- Targets are worth the same amount of points no matter where you hit them. So don't aim for the bullseye; just hit it anywhere.

CardArcade: Version info/history

The final version is 1.1.3, compiled on September 15th, 2015. (Changes to XBLIG are no longer possible.)

If you are not running the latest version of CardArcade, you will be informed that there is an update when you launch the game. Unlike retail and XBLA games, the update is not required to play, but it is strongly recommended that you update for the best experience.

You can check what version you have by looking in the bottom-left corner of the title screen. You will see the string "XBLIG VERSION x.x.x," where x.x.x is the version number you're currently running.
