The Continue screen is something that most gamers are familiar with. In fact, almost if not all games greet players with the Continue screen after they bungled with in-game obstacles.
Dealing with the Continue screen doesn't require much thought: press start to keep on playing, or ignore it and turn the console off when you're finally pissed off and tired. But that's not that case in Nintendo and Sora Ltd.'s Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
There's some math involved in Brawl's Continue screen. One thing that players should know is that they are rewarded a certain amount of coins for every stage completed, with the number of coins rewarded depending on the difficulty setting. Easy mode nets a few coins, with the hardest setting, Intense, giving the most number of coins.
However, if players get pummeled to a pulp enough to send them to the Continue screen, it should be noted that for every time they choose to try again, a number of coins are deducted from their pool of coins that they'll receive once they finally clear the stage. Here are the number of coins forfeited for every continued game:
Easy 10 Coins
Normal 20 Coins
Hard 30 Coins
Very Hard 50 Coins
Intense 100 Coins
The coins are deducted, aside from the fact that your score gets (painfully) cut in half, while gaining a single point for the purposes of keeping track of how many times you continued your game.
Also, half of the stickers and trophies collected in the stage will be lost upon continuing your game, so it helps in being more careful and not too gungho when dealing with enemies.
If players choose to go back to the map instead of continuing, however, players will no longer have to go through the stage, but will lose a lot of coins. Do keep that in mind if you're trying to hoard coins.
