how are points awarded

How exactly are points determined? I understand that lower times will earn more points but is there some sort of scale or equation that determines how many points a certain time for a specific difficulty is worth?

Points

This was posted on 4-9-2010 by adamwho in response to a similar question. It seems to be quite accurate when I tested it then.

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.
