Using flash

You use them during the Scifighter battles to destroy more robots.

    The question is how to use the flashes. I don't know how to use them.

    When you have started the mini game with the polyvac, you need to click on the icon that appears top right of the screen. The flash will then wipe out the visible flying robots.

    The only thing in the upper right corner of my screen is the Railyard Project Board. I must have 2 quests going at once, as I'm not too far into the game. Does this mean I can't use the flash??

    Thank you, folks. I will look for the icon during the polyvac minigame.

    Toni7786- the icon is not visible all of the time. You can only see it when you have started the polyvac mini game.

    I find this flash thingie very helpful.....

    I have been getting scores of 50 or better.....

    In my opinion,
    you should not use the flash,
    unless you absolutely have to,
    to continue the 20 second count down.

    But the later you use the flash,
    the higher your points ,
    because when u use it ,
    those robots stop coming out for about 5 seconds ,
    and this lowers your final score terribly.

    I use the flash every time ,
    only once doing each 20 attack,
    I use it only when the game is almost over,
    usually when there is only 1-2 seconds left
    the later I wait to use it, the higher my score ends up being.

    when I don't use the flash
    my score is usually lower.

    I think this is because,
    using the flash at the latest possible moment,
    allows the game to pick all the robots,
    the robots that are still on the screen ,
    that robots that you could not kill,
    because you ran out of time,
    and then the game adds these robots to your total score

    Also , I only play this portion of the game on my I pad. My I pad has a much bigger screen than my phone , and I use both hands to kill the robots. This way I never really need the flash, but I use it in the last second or so , to pick up all those robots that are still on the screen at the end of the game.

    Remember don't use the flash to early, you will have less robots to kill, and lower scores.

    Good luck Mates.
