Gritty details in swordfighting puzzle Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I be desirous of knowing the exact benefit of combos in the Swordfighting game.

For instance: In the game tetris attack, you can clearly see the effects of your moves when the blocks get dropped. A combo rewards you with a (combo-1) thick block on the top of his stack.

What sort of effect be combos having in this game? If I combo a 2x2 and a 2x2, what do I get different from breaking 2 2x2s in the same block?

Likewise, if I set up a 3 or a 4 combo, what benefits be gained?

Silverbeard has been conducting extensive research in this field and has mentioned so in many other posts.

While I know that many people don't read the forums, I do. Please don't lump me in with the crowd. Silverbeard's article, which I had read several days ago, gives great information about the striking patterns. That's not what I asked about.

I want to know about the size of your drops, especially in regards to combos.

After you write something like that, it's hard for me to sound helpful and not snide. And, seeing as how you wrote in another post,

I'm fully expecting to get laid into for being snide.

But, here goes anyway:

There's a lovely gem of a fact in this post http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=1208#1208 and there's also the pictures of sword becoming blocks in http://www.puzzlepirates.com/docs/alpha/swordfighting.html under the section "Striking Greater Blows With Blocks". Everything I know (and therefore, everything my student Silverbeard knows-- tee-hee!) comes from that and enough playing experience to learn that there aren't any further rules hiding out.
