How do you maximize the pints you're getting?
Been playing this game a bit now and I absolutely love it. The only issue is when it comes to platformers like this, I'm a completionist and I've spent about 9 hours on the prologue trying to get S rank before moving on to the next level. I've gotten all of the other achievements, but even my best run only landed me around 6800/7500 pints. I've poked around on the internet and have failed to find a scoring system, but here's what I've found helps my pints up.
Obviously, never dropping a sigil, collecting all the pages, completing the level quickly, picking up all blood drops, and killing all enemies (particularly several within a short time frame) help. So I must be missing something within comboing.
I'm sure it's not (hopefully), but the system seems arbitrary to me. I always start the level by picking up the blood and killing the first 2 static enemies in the same fashion, yet sometimes I am rewarded with a slightly different pint count. Sometimes simply air-juggling and enemy will provide me with more pints than varying the attacks. Having them land on dangerous environmental hazards seems to add to the points, and killing several in a short period seem to add points as well, but I can't seem to figure out exactly how to dispose of them in a manner that gets me the highest combo. The combo is shown as AxB, B appears to be the number of hits, and A appears to be god knows what. Sometimes I'll hit them with 3-4 different attacks and only get a 2 for A, or sometimes I'll kill them with only 1-2 attacks and get a 3 or 4. Also, if A is meant to be the number of different types of attacks used (I think it is, but perhaps I don't know which attacks are considered different?), what attacks are worth putting into the combo? For instance kicking a walker into spikes on the ceiling seems to add +1 to A, but doing so also does significantly more damage than a normal attack, so you may be losing 2-3 to B.
Additionally how do you deal with bomb imps? It seems inefficient to throw them at other enemies, so how do you/can you increase their worth? Obviously comboing walkers correctly is going to get you quite a few points, but is there a way you'd recommend dealing with knife imps, wraiths, bomb imps, and squidy things that will in general increase their worth?
TLDR; How do I into pints?
