    Hi,
    1)Whats logic behind Geometry Wars that changes ur weapon type? i dont get it, is it random?

    2)whats that number multiplying on top right corner of bottom screen? it doesnt go beyond 150 and it seems that it doesnt do anything.

    Check out the geography wars release thread. Someone has just answered your questions in there.

    1) Probably random, I don't see any pattern.

    2) It's a score multiplier.

    1) me too.

    2) it doesnt multiply anything for me. since you have to die in order to finish a level (since there is no goal to achieve and finish a level) and when you die, that multiplier goes zero.

    It multiplies how many points you get for killing an enemy. I don't get whatever else you are trying to ask. The object of a level is to get a high score. You also get medals for reaching certain goals.

    i think i got it, thnx.
    (i missed a SINCE in that sentence, i think its now more clear).

    what about weapon changes? whats the pattern?
    sometimes when i just start shooting, it changes, even before appearing a first enemy. (my god, how a triangle can be your enemy?)

    i think the weapon changes is based how many you kill or the amount of time you fire.

    Well, I had my drone kill 50 or so and when I fired it was all the way up. So not shots, most likely kills?

    Dunno about this one, but the original Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, the weapon changed based on score. Once you reached a certain score, it would switch automatically.

    In Galaxies it depends on how many enemies are on the screen when you spawn. If you don't die from the beginning, theres a set time for when your gun changes. Starting at 1 stream, 3 stream, 5 stream then it'll alternate between 5 stream and 3 rapid fire.

    Every 350 geoms, your weapon changes. However, after awhile the weapon only occasionally switches back and forth between two types. Every 5000 geoms, you get another life.

    Also, you get more experience based on how long you spend on a level, and nothing else.
