How to calculate the point?
How do you calculate the point?
Does it only use the time to calculate?
Points earned depend on the difficulty of the puzzle as well as how quickly you've solved it. Here's a quote from Admin on another thread:
Laura is absolutely correct. It may take a while, but when your times start to go down, they can go down far and fast.;)
Thanks for all answers :)
I want to know how to solve the puzzle in only 1 or 2 minutes?
My fastest is about 3 min. :(
For 5x5 games
Points = -(1/3)*time_in_sec + 535
For 4x4 games
These are on the line:
Points = -(1/3)*time_in_sec + 375
This of course, is not the whole picture since even really terrible finish times give some points, so it is likely that the scoring is not a single line but piece-wise continuous.
Based on that equation that appears to accurately chart scores for finished puzzles, the best strategy is to get really good at solving puzzles in the 600-700 second range. These puzzles are short enough to get really good times and scores. When trying to solve short 4X4 puzzles, I only get around 330 points even if I set a new record for it.
As for getting faster, it still comes down to practice. I've improved markedly even after I thought I was really good. There are plateaus that can persist for a while before progress is seen.
