Could someone explain the scoring system for rRootage, especially the bonus that is divided by the number of lives lost/bombs used at the end of each round?

Try this.

Score from damage:
The bonus indicator ranges from 10 to 1000 by 10. It increases whenever you damage the boss and decreases whenever you do not. Some multiple of the bonus is added to your score periodically, maybe every frame.

Mode-specific scoring:
Normal: 10 points per bullet bombed.
Psy: 50 points per graze, some or all of the time.
Ika & GW: 100 points per reflect.

Score for destroying the boss:
Base score is roughly 750000 - [333 250 200 167 142] x frames, 60 fps.
That is divided by (1 + lives lost + bombs used).

Also, multiplier increases faster if you're close to the boss. So it's a good idea to come close to him every time he changes form and stay there until multiplier reaches maximum.
