Ball Blast is essentially a mix between an arcade shooter, puzzle bobble, and a counting game. It's all about blasting balls into bits and claiming the coins they drop. But while it might appear simple to begin with, there are plenty of tips and tricks that can put you in pole position to get the very best scores.
And luckily that's what we're here to tell you. We've put hours into the game, and in this guide we're going to walk you through all of the hints and tips we've worked out in that time, so you can become sort sort of royal ball blaster. Takes all sorts to make a world, after all.
Avoid the corners
It can be tempting to slide into a corner and blast at the balls as they move over head. Don't do it though, because more often than not one of the balls is going to land on your side, killing you before you've had a chance to take it out. Staying in one spot also makes the coins more difficult to collect.
The best way to avoid the balls is to keep on the move. You're going to want to be shooting them for as long as possible, but it's a good idea to move a split second before you think you have to. That way you're almost guaranteed to dodge the bounce and be able to get yourself back in position for the next volley.
Watch the bounces
The balls all bounce in slightly different ways when they come onto the screen, depending on their size and their point of origin. Big balls, for example, will lumber on slowly, do a single bounce, and then ricochet up to the top of the screen. Know the bounces and you'll be able to take advantage of them.
Upgrade your coins
It's easy to focus on upgrading your BPM and damage scores, but don't forget to upgrade the number of coins you get from each of the balls you destroy. It's all well and good being able to take them out, but you want to make sure that you're getting the best reward for doing it. Upgrade the coins you get when you're not playing when you can, but don't worry about it too much.
If you're close to the end of a level, it's always worth watching a video to keep playing when you've died. The same goes for any videos that give you extra coins. Obviously if they're offering ten coins it's fine to give them a miss, but keeping your coffers filled will give you the best chance to get as far as possible in the game.
