How to get stars faster in Six! -- and what you do with them

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on September 5th, 2016

There's no more popular mobile game in all the land right now (if by all the land, you mean "the United States") than Six!The GramGames puzzler which is one part Tetris, one part Jenga, and one part it's own thing has captured the imagination of the casual crowd, leading to plenty and plenty of downloads.

How to get stronger characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on September 1st, 2016

Naruto is a fine guy to have on your side in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing. It's his game and his franchise after all.

Still, the three- or four-star Naruto you have leading your team early on isn't necessarily going to cut it. Or at least, he'll need to rank up and be stronger to conquer the enemies you'll face later on.

So that leaves you with a couple of choices. Either make Naruto and the friends (and foes, in some cases) you find more powerful, or simply find some characters that are tougher.

Better yet, do both. We can help you, as we dive into how to get stronger characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing.
