Disc Drivin' 2 Guide - Tips for the Seasoned Slider

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 22nd, 2018

We're all still playing quite a bit of Disc Drivin' 2 over here at 148Apps, and we've gotten pretty good at it. Now that we've spent some more time with the game and unlocked more powerups, check out some of these more advanced tips:

Switch it up on the fly

So you may know you can switch between powerups in a match of Disc Drivin' 2, but did you know you can also do it while your disc is in motion? It operates the exact same way as when you're standing still, but you've got to be quick to change your powers and use them while on the move. This is a good skill to practice, because you switching from a boost to a brake at the right time to prevent a falloff could make the difference between winning and losing a match.

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.
