Knights Chronicle guide - Which SR and R units to keep

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 27th, 2018

If you've been playing Knights Chronicle like we have, you've been summoning a bunch of heroes and then scouring the internet to find out which ones are worth keeping and which ones aren't. After all, you don't want to over fill your Hero Box and spend valuable gems on making it bigger.

While it's pretty obvious that you want to hold on to most SSR characters, the rest of the game's cast is a little more mysterious. Specifically, many SR and R characters can evolve into powerful six-star units, but which ones should you give this treatment, and which ones should you use as food for your other heroes? Check out this guide for the answers to these questions:

Knights Chronicle guide - How to manage your stamina without spending money

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 25th, 2018

Knights Chronicle is a pretty great turn-based rpg, but it's free-to-play mechanics are pretty tough to deal with. In particular, the use of a stamina meter to limit the amount of times you can play the game in one session can be a real bummer. The easiest way around this issue–of course–is to spend some money on the game for Stamina Potions to let you play more of the game more often. But, if you're like me and don't want to spend a penny on Knights Chronicle, here are a few ways to can circumvent this pesky, restrictive system.

BlazeFury is a unique take on the shmup genre, so it’s pretty easy to be confused about how you should play it. Fear not though, dear reader. These tips below will make you a dogfighting champion in no time.

Missiles are the best

The best way to start progressing quickly in BlazeFury is to invest in the right weapons. Since enemies get harder and harder, and there’s no real way to fight back without upgrading your own arsenal, you want to be sure you’re making the best investments possible.

From my experience, the missiles are the best weapon for you to unlock and continuously upgrade. Not only do they pack a punch against enemies, but they also do a great deal of splash damage, which can help you take down enemies that you aren’t even targeting.

Super Hydorah guide - How to straighten up and fly right

Posted by Campbell Bird on May 11th, 2018

Super Hydorah is an old-school shooter in almost every way imaginable. This means that it can be quite tough and unforgiving at times. If you find yourself struggling in the game, feel free to try out some of these tips to help you have a better time with it.

Don't be afraid of Easy Mode

Upon learning that Super Hydorah has an Easy Mode, you might reflexively avoid it and go with the game's Normal Mode, but this is most likely a mistake. Unless you are a seasoned shooter player or you've already been through Super Hydorah once, Easy Mode is the way to go.

Easy Mode grants you a rechargable shield, which can allow you to get further into levels more easily. You may not rack up quite as much score, but going through Super Hydorah on an easier difficulty can definitely help prepare you for subsequent runs on Normal Mode.

Paladins Strike guide - How to achieve team victory

Posted by Campbell Bird on May 7th, 2018

Paladins Strike is an interesting hybrid between a hero shooter and MOBA. If you go into the game not knowing this, it could be hard to know exactly how you should be playing it. With these tips though, you’ll have a solid handle on the game in no time.

More shooter than MOBA

Although Paladins Strike may appear to be more of a MOBA than a shooter, the opposite is actually true. The only real MOBA bits in this game are the camera angle, your ability to upgrade your hero as you level up, and the presence of tall grass, which you can use to hide in to ambush enemies.

That said, Paladins Strike still isn’t a full-on shooter. You have limited shots of your primary weapon that recharge over time, so you need to be careful about how often to use your regular attacks. So, though it may be tempting to try and run your gun your way through the game, you should focus more on your hero powers and teamwork to win matches.

Project Highrise guide - How to get started on ground floor

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 13th, 2018

Project Highrise gives you a lot of tools and deep systems to grapple with while building the skyscraper of your dreams, but in doing so, it can be hard to know exactly where to start. As we dumped time into the game while reviewing it, we came up with this list of tips that should be good for getting you started with the game:

Builders can be finicky

The one constant in every Project Highrise building is the presence of a construction crew. These are the people that follow your directions when it comes to building new floors, installing apartments, outfitting offices, etc. They are the true key to your success in the game, but they aren’t always the easiest people to control.

Since you have no direct control over builders, they choose when to work and what to work on. The main things you need to know about their habits are that your builders generally work on projects in the order that you mark things for construction, and they won’t work tirelessly. Every once in a while they’ll want to take a break. Keeping these things in mind, make sure you build things in the order that you want them to go up and make sure you don’t wait to the last minute to build crucial additions to your building.
