Temple of Spikes: The Legend Guide - How To Have Fun While Dying Constantly

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 8th, 2018

We’ve been dying over and over in the absolutely brutal Temple of Spikes: The Legend recently, but somehow we can’t stop playing it. If you want to have as good a time as we are with the game, check out a few of these tips to help you out:

How to spot secret areas

Every level in Temple of Spikes has a secret area where you can go through a particularly challenging platforming section to retrieve a Scarab. These areas aren’t exactly easy to see though. They are almost always hallways that are hidden behind walls that you can just walk through, but there is a trick to spotting them. As you’re moving close to a level’s walls, your torch can shine past walls where secret passages are, so keep that in mind while you’re trying to go Scarab hunting.

Lichtspeer Guide - How to Keep Yourself on Target

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 6th, 2018

Lichtspeer is a sort of tower defense game that’s full of colorful neon Viking enemies that are trying to fell your spear-wielding hero. Sometimes, the game’s action gets quite hectic, but if you keep the following tips in mind, you might last long enough to earn your spot in Valhalla.

You can miss twice, but don’t miss thrice

When tossing your spears at enemies, you want to try and keep a combo going by hitting enemies without missing. If you do happen to miss once or twice, the game continues as normal, but you have to build your combo back up from nothing again. Missing three times is a real killer though, as it stuns your Viking, which is a hard thing to recover from.

Prioritize properly

Lichtspeer wastes no time throwing a ton of enemies at you at once, but getting rid of all of them can be a snap if you know which ones you should focus on first. A good general rule is the faster and/or smaller an enemy is, the more you should focus on killing it first. Of course, if a giant cyclops is knocking at your door just as a faster and smaller enemy appears, you may want to take care of it first before taking down the small guy.

Shields shmeilds

One of the more frustrating enemies in Lictchspeer are shield-bearing warriors that can block your spear throws. On occasion, these enemies reveal their faces so you can kill them easily, but did you know you can also kill these brutes even when they aren’t explicitly looking out from under their shield? Even when protecting themselves, it’s still possible to hit the tops of their heads. With such a small target, it can be tricky, but it’s still doable.

Decimate via decapitation

Lichtspeer primarily asks you to survive its levels, but if you really want to maximize your score, you need to focus on headshots. Hitting enemies in the head not only dispatches them immediately, but it also adds bonus multipliers to your score. What’s more is that stringing together multiple headshots in quick succession grants yet another bonus to your score. So, if you want to be a true Lichtspeer master, you must be quick, but also extremely accurate.

Airdrop into mayhem in Grand Battle Royale from GameSpire

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

If you’re a fan of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), but lament the fact that you can’t play it on the go, then you’re in luck. Hong Kong developer GameSpire has released a brand new battle royale title for Android and iOS – Grand Battle Royale.

Of course, battle royale games aren’t unheard of on mobile, but most of them look identical. Grand Battle Royale eschews all that realism business for a playfully pixellated take on the genre. It’s like Minecraft plus guns, or PUBG built out of Lego.

Headshot ZD Guide - How to Survive Just A Little Longer

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 2nd, 2018

Surviving in the zombie apocalypse can be quite tough, particularly if you’re dealing with the kind of zombies that can only be dispatched with shots to the head. Headshot ZD gives you that exact task in a free-to-play, survival-action format, and it’s one of those games where it’s surprisingly easy to fail if you’re not careful. In the interest of saving you and your zombie team from being eaten alive, keep these tips in mind:

Skeleton crew

As you play Headshot ZD, you may run across survivors that will want to join your crew. In most zombie games, you might want to take these people under your wing, but Headshot ZD is not most zombie games. This is a game about survival, and the more people you bring into your settlement, the more mouths you have to feed. Unless a survivor has some unique weapon or really great stats, you might just want to keep your crew to one or two members, particularly in the early game.
