    Firework Tips

    Here's some personal tips that might help you with your game:

    Always start off good. A great start can win it in the end.

    Never settle for less than 40,000 after the first level. Anything less will not likely pay much, if that's why you're playing.

    Never settle for anything less than a Flawless. True, popping a firework is better than nothing at all, but to make good credits on your games, you'll need to figure out the timing, and eventually you'll get used to seeing nothing but Flawless pops. After that, all you have to worry about is not missing.

    Be comfortable. A game is about 10 minutes I'd say and consists of straight hand and eye coordination. Moving closer to the screen to do better doesn't often work, and could actually hinder your game. In my cases anyways.

    Set small goals, trying to be first place in VMK can drive you crazy (I know) if you let it so start off small. As in above, try to clear 40,000 on the first level and 90,000 on the second level. My current goal is to clear 200,000 by the end of the fourth level. This doesn't happen too too often, but it keeps me in the 190's after level four.

    Some fireworks last longer than others such as the pink, green, and yellow ones. They tend to fall from their peak before a start is shown. While the rest of the colors all have about the same timing.

    ALL firework colors have a maximum value of 1,000 points if popped as a flawless (flawless scores can range from 900-1,000 points), which means bad timing can cost you a good 1,000 points for every 8-12 fireworks popped.



    have fun and I hope this helps a little!

    it's almost (actually it is) a delay in reaction. You see the star, and then you hit. Not as it blinks, but just when it's finished. Forcing yourself to do this you'll see alot more pretty red words, or none at all

    I forgot to add that if you clean your computer's temp files and such, your first game of the day or first after a clean up could and probably will be very slow. If I'm not mistaken it's a flash game which exists in Disney data base, and in your temp and cookie files?

    And if you have a nice running game of fireworks, the signal for a flawless score is to wait until the star has rotated at least 15 degrees. I may sound weird but that's one way of getting flawless scores.
