I've been playing a bit of Shatter here and there lately. Being somewhat competitive and a rather capable gamer, and seeing how the game informs me of my friends' scores on each level, my aim was to at least roughly match what my friends did.
However, I must be doing something wrong, as I'm always 10-20 million points behind (I aim for 60 million on Kinetic Harvest, but have hardly gotten 40). So I'm wondering if there are any techniques I'm missing on to cover those missing points.
Should I not obsess about collecting shards and focus on clearing the level quickly? Should I use multiple balls at once (the game recommends it for a better score, though I don't really get how it helps)? Should I try to suck less at the bonus level?
I'm open to suggestions.
