When asteroids begin to swarm on the screen in Beat Hazard, what I usually do is dodge them so I can rack up multiplier through Dare Devil. This allows me to score more points when ships come on screen.
However, by doing this, I miss out on the generous amount of points that can be scored by shooting the rocks down (I usually use superbombs for this purpose as it doesn't count as a shot for Dare Devil purposes). This changes in the last 15 seconds, where I instead decide to scrape the last points up by blowing up rocks.
Is my strategy suboptimal? Do I lose points if I blow rocks with a bomb instead of regular weaponry?
