You score points in this game with combos and it’s 100pts per hit.
Choose any characters that you can confidently achieve multi-hits with or in my case I went with Joe/Chang/Ralf in that order.
If you are unfamiliar with the controls, on the Character Order Selection screen you’ll want Joe to be first followed by Chang etc.
Joe is your point scorer and you should be able to get 30,000 with him alone. Simply spam the
button while moving towards your opponent. This move will generate 900-1200 points if the opponent doesn’t block.
It’s totally possible to get 30k from the first two bouts but if Joe dies, simply use Chang by spamming
towards your opponent to survive the remaining rounds and then resume the point assault with Joe.
I never used my 3rd character with this method.
