BlazeFury guide - How to wrap your mind around this odd shmup

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 12th, 2018

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.

Mini Golf King update hits the green with new features in tow

Posted by 148Apps Staff on March 30th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Having swung its way onto iOS and Android devices over a year ago, arcade multiplayer title Mini Golf King has returned from the clubhouse with all-new content in tow.

Bluehole PNIX’s free-to-play offering already provided a quirky twist on the popular sport by pitting players against more than 30 trap-filled, bonus-packed courses, and the game’s latest update has added an all-new gameplay mode and an additional power-up to the equation.

Hole-in-one Challenge, a new way to play Mini Golf King, is the update’s headline feature. In this mode, players are pitted against a series of courses where the ball must be sunk in one shot. Racking up a hole in one will fire them through to the next level and rewards will be dished out each time.

The Golf Pin power-up, which can be purchased from the store or found in select chests, is another new addition and it will help players improve their game by adding extra wind resistance, distance and other enhancements to every shot they take.

Ready to conquer the greens and the fairways? Mini Golf King is available to download for free from the App Store and Google Play, and the new update is ready to install now.

Tako Bubble guide - Tips and Tricks to Save Your Lives

Posted by Campbell Bird on January 17th, 2018

Tako Bubble is a pretty simple and fun puzzler, but the game can get downright devious with its puzzle design. If you insist on not paying for the game and want to manage your lives appropriately, check out these tips so you can avoid getting stuck watching ads.

Look before you leap

One of the greatest things about Tako Bubble is its visual design. Not only is everything cute and colorful, but it is also remarkably communicative. Be on the lookout for x’s that appear in spaces nearby or cracks in certain tiles before you start swiping around and collecting bubbles. Take your time, look things over, and plot out a course of action. This will make sure you don’t trap yourself in an unwinnable situation.

Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good

In Tako Bubble, you want to collect as many bubbles as possible, but it’s not necessary to collect everything to reach the next level. All you have to do is collect the colorful bubbles in order to proceed. All of the other bubbles on a level might be tempting to go after, but they also present opportunities for you to die, so focus on getting through a level rather than perfecting it. You’ll last longer that way.

When all else fails, restart

If saving lives if your priority, then never die! You can do this easily by using Tako Bubble’s restart button. Pressing this button might make you have to retrace some of your steps, but at least using it doesn’t consume any of your precious lives. Use it as often as you need!

Get the hint

Certain levels of Tako Bubble bring up a little lightbulb icon at the top of the screen. This icon exists to give you hints on how to solve the level, so make sure you use it whenever you can. Any additional amount of information can be the difference between surviving a level and wasting a life.
