So let's say we clear 4 buildings and get to the 6th level of building 5, can we report our score as 4.6?  May be an easy way to track the results.

Yep exactly 4.6 - (score)

 

Would be like this,

 

1. 4.6 - 27,000

So the screenshot for 4,6 would show 5 floors completed (red), correct?

Not exactly, the screenshot will say "4" in the bottom right corner since you completed 4 buildings.  Then it will show 6 levels of building 5 in red.

Sorry, I should have said floors not levels, but yes that is what I was picturing 🙂

Ok cool.  👍  Since you said 5 levels, I assumed you meant 5 buildings, lol.  So 4.6 would be 4 buildings and 6 floors completed in red.

I lost all 7 men at once when my game ended. WTF? 

It just happens like that. You’ll be climbing windows like crazy and then the bombardment of lost lives happen.

Am I not scoring myself correctly? I seem to get a high score relative to my building count/height...

It’s how much progress you’ve made that counts, so your score there is 2.5.  You cleared 2 buildings and then 5 levels in the next building. The total score at the top is only being used as a tie breaker if needed.

Ahhh, thank you friend. I see that this was discussed early on, but your summary helped. 

 

By the way... When you fall off the side of a tall building, it's actually a really impressive graphical effect to watch the game scroll through all the lower levels.

No problem!

 

And I agree it is a cool effect for an early game. They did a pretty good job on this one overall and made it fun, although frustrating at times.

I fell of my building last night and rage-quit !!! 

I've only done this twice since I got the game in the mail last Thursday, but both times, I was surprised at the brutality of the developers forcing us to watch our player character plummet to his death for what seems like an eternity. All that hard work, gone.
