I've played through SSBU's Classic Mode maybe two dozen times with various characters, and each time I've played through the Credits Game, where you have to shoot at the credits (plus a handful of polygonal enemies) as they scroll across the screen.
I consistently score between 1.6 - 1.68 million, but there doesn't seem to be any pattern to whether I score higher or lower on any given run. I've had runs where I've been hit by multiple enemies and missed a few names due to being stunned, and yet still scored more points than in runs where I didn't get hit at all and (as far as I can tell) hit every single name and enemy.
To add to my confusion, the high-score for the SSBU credits game on Cyberscore is roughly 1.86 million. I cannot fathom where people are getting those extra 180,000 points from, but there has to be some aspect of the scoring system that I'm not aware of.
So: how does the scoring system work for SSBU's credits game? What methods can I use to reliably obtain a higher score?
I'm aware that scoring anything beyond 1.5 million doesn't really matter, but my competitive streak has kicked in and just won't let this go.
