Nah, that doesn't happen. The problems are: uncovering bees with your laser doesn't refill your chain gauge, and holding the laser on a large enemy and then destroying it doesn't refill your chain gauge either. Fully chaining stage 2 is impossible bacause there's parts where you have to hold your laser on a large enemy and as soon as you destroy it your chain breaks. My max 175 chain comes from the first half of stage 1.Smraedis wrote:I think the chain meter drops at 60 fps while the game isn't always running at that?
The only reason I managed to get 25 million was because I managed to no miss no bomb the first three stages (apart from 1 bomb right at the end of the 3rd boss), so I was getting my maximum bonus all the way through stage 3. Score at the of stage 3 was about 18.5 million, which shows you how bad I did on 4 and 5.
