So this is a lengthy post, and I don’t know if it’s in the right place.
So I start with the shop. Some things are no clear to me.
How long do perishables last? One mission? Certain time? For one wave?
How much difference are low-mid-tier heat sinks? is it worth buying a medium one or just save for the best one?
Now to the keys. Keys are the soul of the game. And I am confused how I get the efficiently.
To me it seems that the game is simply punishing me for being fast and good.
I get keys after a certain time. So AFKing a wave gives more keys. Score seems to not give me anything. Why should I go for Multikills/clean sweeps and whatnot? I mean I get new ranks, but at some point it will take a long time to obtain a new one.
Shouldn’t be playing fast and good rewarded with more keys?
I also do not get the difficulty. I bought myself SSH, and if I understand it correctly in the ending screen, it gives me a 20% bonus on keys, while like Rookie or so gives less.
I do not know if having 20% more keys on missions where I get 100-200 tops is worth that much when I burn through lifes faster and have to re-buy them.
I also feel like missions are really unbalanced. An easy mission with 40 waves gives me infinitely more keys than a really hard boss-rush. Both taek equal time and the boss rush is much harder. So imo it should give me more keys.
I know starting ship gives me more keys and SHH allegedly, even though I do not see it. Whether or not I play normal or SSH, I get 1-2 keys per wave. Sometimes 0.
Are there certain missions I don’t know about which give me keys? I know I can sell food for keys.
