What is "human value" in Arcade mode?

Thu Jun 26, 2014 11:48 pm

Topic, pretty much. I just saw somebody mentioning the term with a specific number like 3.3m. There's probably more to it than just returning all the humans at the end of a level.

Paraphrasing Dent4Face:

Each human saved is worth “10 000 x your multiplier” points. A 50 000 points bonus x your multiplier is given for saving another human while the arrow under an escape pod is blue instead of green.
Let’s see an example.
1st human saved = 10 000 points.
2nd human saved = 20 000 points. If saved rin apid succession, he’ll be worth
60 000 points.
3rd human saved = 70 000 points unless saved in rapid succession as well. In that case he’d be worth 110 000 points.
Taking Acis as an example, if you save all 10 humans of at once, the 10th human will be worth 460 000 points.
Their value carries over to the next level as long as no human dies. If a human is lost, the value resets to 10 000pts.

Yes.. The value of the human you save is shown on the screen after you saved one.

When somebody says "I had a 3.3m value", they've most likely saved over 70 humans without losing a single one. As you know, there are 50 humans in total but when you play on Master, there's a 'hidden' Hero mode and the human value carries over there as well. So at 100X (on Hero), a 3.3m value human nets 330 million points.

If you need more clarification, just point out where it's confusing and I'll do my best to help.
