Dragalia Lost Trick or Treasure Jumpstart Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 19th, 2018

It’s finally here! Loyalty’s Requiem ended in Dragalia Lost, but it has swiftly been replaced with a new Halloween event. This event—called Trick or Treasure—had quite a bit of hype surrounding it before it came out, and for good reason too.

This isn’t just another raid-based event for another element type. It’s a facility event, meaning it’s focused around letting you earn rewards to help you upgrade your Castle Grounds. In light of the fact that Trick or Treasure is such a different beast, we’ve put together a quick and dirty guide on how to get a jumpstart on this Halloween event.

Dragalia Lost Daily Tasks Guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 16th, 2018

Part of what makes gacha games compelling (and sometimes annoying) is their grind. You’re always supposed to be advancing something in these games, meaning you need to be checking in on your progress once or multiple times a day to make sure you’re progressing at an optimal pace.

Something nice about Dragalia Lost is that its daily grind is relatively light compared to similar games. This is to say the specific objectives given to you every day aren’t something that takes a huge time investment. That said though, there’s quite a few tasks you should be doing every day to advance your progress, even though they aren’t daily quests. See below:

Thanks to some data mining and other clever trickery, there’s a quite a bit of info on this next event coming out, and we’ve compiled the most important bits in one convenient place.

Dragalia Lost is primarily is cooperative multiplayer game. There’s some stuff you can do on your own, but things like the Phraeganoth raid require that you play with others online.

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 8th, 2018

In a previous Dragalia Lost guide on Loyalty’s Requiem, I mentioned that the minimum Might threshold for beating Phraeganoth was around 6,000, and now I’m going to tell you exactly how clear this raid if you have such a team. If you’re not much for words, you can also just check out the video above and watch a 6k team of mine (barely) clear the raid.

There are some definite strategies you need to know to beat Phraeganoth, but—as you can see in the video—executing on them can be tricky and put you in a bad spot fast. Nevertheless, if you are just careful enough, you can beat Phraeganoth using the following strategies:

The more you dig into Dragalia Lost, the more stuff you find you need to do. There’s leveling your heroes, tending to your dragons, crafting weapons, and—of course—questing.

Everything you need to know to grab the most territory in Paper.io 2

Posted by Elizabeth Eagen-Jones on October 2nd, 2018

Voodoo games has come out with a sequel to their territory-claiming game Paper.io, and we have all the tips you need to chew up the scenery and claim the crown. We've put a good few hours into the game now, and we've picked up some impressive hints and tips along the way. So we're going to share them with you.

Make sure you click this link to check out all of our other handy guides. Whether you like your games casual or hardcore, there's going to be something in there that's going to help you. Right then, let's get on with making you the best Paper.io 2 player in the whole of the world.

Please note, that's not a guarantee.

Start out small

When you start up the game, you'll be thrown into an arena with several other players. How close they are to you - and how much time they've already had to start claiming territory - seems to largely be up to chance. When you first arrive, then, start out by coloring in small pieces of the world until you get a feel for things, and figure out where your opponents are.

Watch and wait

When it comes to the other players, it's best to avoid them until you have some territory claimed. Crossing another player's unfinished line will cause you to die, and while it might also take them out, that won't help you win any more ground. As your area grows larger you can try to manipulate your opponents into crossing your line by drawing in front of them, but you'll want to make sure they don't try to do the same to you.

Nibble it up

While you want to be careful about crossing the lines of your opponents, you shouldn't hesitate to take a bite out of their territory in order to add to your own. In fact, you'll likely have to in order to keep adding to your score, especially as the game progresses. Again, it's easiest to take little pieces at first, but if you realize your opponent is far away - or not paying attention - that's your chance to take a sizeable piece of their claim.

Consider ad-free

The only transaction in the game is a purchase to remove ads, and if you really want to rise to the top, you might consider forking over the cash. The ads are frustratingly intrusive, playing after almost every round, and it can be hard to get into the flow of the game when you're constantly interrupted by them. Removing them lets you get rounds in quicker, and get more practice -but how worthwhile it is to have the extra time is up to you.

Iron Marines guide - Is the new update worth it?

Posted by Campbell Bird on September 27th, 2018

When Iron Marines released around this time last year, I lauded it as one of the best real-time strategy games on mobile, and I still stand by that. The game wasn’t perfect by any means, as it had a relative lack of content and a weird mircotransaction model that felt unnecessary, but it was still a near-perfect execution on how to streamline a genre onto mobile.

This week, Iron Marines dropped a new update that added a bunch of free content to the game. In light of this news, I wanted to take a new look at Iron Marines and assess whether this update makes the game worth jumping into if you decided to skip it initially.

Posted by Campbell Bird on September 26th, 2018

Bouncing Hero is a really tough but fair action game. Your pogo knight can be pretty nimble at times, but it’s up to you to steer him out of the way of fire or other obstacles, which is much easier said than done.

A lot of the game revolves around simply learning from your mistakes and training yourself to execute, but there are some generally good strategies you can use to help you do this. See below for some of key advice for bouncing through Bouncing Hero.

Everything you need to know to win in Hello Stars for mobile

Hello Stars is a combination of an idle game where you try to gain more fans and play on a bigger stage, and a puzzle game where you earn coins to help advance your rockstar career. Here's some tips to help you become the best of the best and shoot to stardom.

If you keep these in mind, you should be well on your way to blasting through the puzzles and soaring to the top of the world stage. And if you've got your own hints and tips that you think other players will find helpful, make sure you add them in the comments section at the bottom of the article.

And while you're here, smash a click on this link to check out all the other guides we've written to help you out in tricky games.

Upgrade your act

The number of fans you have determines the size of the stage you'll play on, so if you want to make it to the top you'll need lots of them. The best way to earn fans is by upgrading your act, and passively drawing fans to you, rather than clicking. As you earn coins, don't be afraid to spend them on your sweet dance moves.

Don't give in to your vanity

Many of the things you can spend your hard-earned coins on are actually cosmetic upgrades, letting you change the appearance of your ball or drawing line in puzzle levels, for example. These won't actually help you advance faster, so your coins are better spent on other things - unless, of course, you see something you just can't live without.

Don't be afraid to use hints

That said, don't let your need to save coins stop you from using hints if you get stuck on a puzzle level. Sometimes you'll be offered a chance to get a hint in exchange for an ad, but if you're truly stuck don't be afraid to hand over the coins in order to advance. After all, puzzle levels are the only way to make more coins, so getting stuck will definitely hold you up.

Take a light touch with your ink

When it comes to the puzzles themselves, you'll be drawing lines in order to get the orb where you want it to go. The less ink you can use, the closer you'll get to scoring a perfect for the level, and the more coins you'll earn. Try and make your lines as efficient as possible in order to save ink, and don't hesitate to reset a level if your line doesn't turn out quite like you wanted.
