Following on the heels of last week’s article on Wrack’s super-mega-awesomepants features, I thought it’d be great to talk about another one of them – Wrack’s Time Attack and Score Attack modes!
These are two special modes designed each with a specific purpose: Complete the map as quickly as possible (Time Attack), or complete the map with the highest score possible (Score Attack). Both modes force you to take a completely different approach when playing the level (well, if you want to do well that is!). For instance, during time attack, it’s typically optimal to skip as many areas as possible. Sometimes you can do this by jumping off of crawlers or by rocket jumping. Score Attack encourages you to rack up (wrack up?) kills, multi-kills, and to chain together as many kills as you possibly can. Basically, it’s a slaughterfest with a bit of treasure hunting thrown in (some of which can take a lot of skill to get)!
What’s best about these modes though is that you’re not just competing against yourself – you’re competing against the whole world! That’s because your best time/score on a particular map is submitted to the leaderboard!
What’s even better is that not only is your score/time submitted to the leaderboard, but your replay is as well! Not only will people be able to see your amazing time or score, but they’ll be able to see how you pulled off that amazing feat as well! Plus, if you’re dumbfounded by someone else’s time/score, you can easily check out how they did it without having to run to YouTube! Not only that, but this method will be a powerful cheat deterrent as well.
Runners, start your engines! It’s going to be fun!
