Polarium strategies

I would start puting strategies here, But I don't have enoth time(yet). Just be satisfyed woth the big bitmap above.

 

chalange mode score calculation

Move:
Is when you flip one or more tiles.
In other words. Flipping zero tiles is not a move.
Lines:
This is the number of rows of tiles that got cleared in a move.
Tiles:
This is the number of tiles that got flipped in all of the cleared lines.
Borders:
When two of the cleared lines is opposite colors.
Splits:
When two of the cleared lines has a uncleared row of tiles in between them.
Chains:
This is a counter that gets increased every time your move clears one or more lines.
It also resets back to zero if you don't clear a line in that move.

This is the score you get for a single move:
T*5*(L+S+B+C).
You can also get this score if you clear the entire board in that move.
Full clear bonus:
T*L*100
you get this full clear bonus if you have boarders in it too.
T*L*B*100
note that there is also a full clear counter, but that is all it does, counts.


If there is a split in betwine black and white rows. It counts as a split not a border.
