Has anyone figured out how scoring works in this game? I try to watch the score every now and then while I'm playing, to see how many points things are worth, but I keep getting inconsistent results. Is it because blocks of different colors are worth different amounts? Does hitting blocks in succession increase the point value of succeeding blocks (I know there are "combo!" messages every now and then, but a) I don't see them all the time, and b) I don't know if they imply anything about the score)? Do the '3,' '5,' and '7' power-ups really work as score multipliers? And just what effect on the score does getting a goal or picking up a crown power-up have (that is, do they give you 0 points and simply end the level early for you?)?
Scoring a goal is pretty fun, if typically unexpected. It really helps to have multiple balls on the screen at once, but I've had a few occasions of scoring a goal with only a single ball, too. In the one custom level I created with the editor, I put unbreakable blocks near the goal, and right as planned, the ball bouncing all over in that area eventually scored a goal, hehe.
