The Point Scored for Continuing wiki last edited by Hailinel on 12/11/13 07:59PM View full history


For some games that keep track of the player's score, a single point is added to the point tally each time the player uses a continue. The purpose behind this practice is to tag high scores that required the use of a continue, as it is potentially possible to score more points using continues than in a clean run due to having to replay a section or sections of a game over. This particular action is commonly found in modern arcade or console titles with high score tables. It is also sometimes paired with a reduction in the player's overall score, reducing their chance at a high score while marking the number of continues that were required to attain it.
