Masters of the Masks – Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Masters of the Masks is a new RPG for the iOS and Android platforms by Square Enix and Lastmoon Games. Typical of a Square production, this is one seriously pretty looking game. Your group of masked characters can equip a wide range of masks, weapons and armor, and your goal is to fight your way through the large overworld of the game, while collecting masks, silver and gold. Read on for some tips and tricks for Masters of the Masks!

The battle stages start off easy, but they get fairly tough after awhile. You can boost stats by crafting new equipment, or by creating or merging masks. Go to the stages that you have already beaten when you know that they have the right rewards, and build up your stash of materials until you have what you need for some crafting.

The other option, of course, is to simply grind until you gain enough experience points for a few level ups. Each time your characters gain a level they gain a stat boost without having to mess with their equipment at all. Plus, with each battle that you win, you will gain coins too.

Be sure to complete all of the achievements listed in the achievement menu, which has an icon that looks like a gold medal. When you see a number next to it, go to the achievements menu to collect your reward for the ones that have been completed. This is your main way of earning free gold in this game; otherwise, you’re gonna end up purchasing gold in the IAP store.

Put your most powerful, highest-level character with the highest stats as your leader card. Do this and your leader card will get chosen by more players off of the initial list at the beginning of the battle, causing you to get more add requests in this game. Pick by the same qualifications when you choose which leader to take into battle; pick the strongest, highest-leveled one with the most powerful statistics.

You can get significant elemental advantages from using the right weapons and armor in battle. Fire beats life, life beats rock, rock beats water and water beats fire, so match up properly against your rivals for a large advantage. You can always sell any old equipment that you don’t need in order to get more silver; however, be sure that you won’t need it for any of these match ups before you do.

EA Sports UFC (iOS and Android) Tips and Tricks: Cheats, Hints and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

EA Sports UFC is a brand-new fighting game for the iOS and Android platforms. In this game you play as a real life UFC fighter, and you’re goal is to train your fighter, fight against other real life fighters, and eventually win the championship. You can collect silver and gold and then use them to purchase new fighters, new abilities, and other upgrades. Read on for some tips and tricks for EA Sports UFC!

Each fighter has a specific set of skills that they unlock as they level. You upgrade the skills and your fighter with various skill cards. If you match a skill card with the skill of the fighter, then the experience points that are gained from using that card as a material card will be multiplied by six, giving your fighter a massive boost. Always use the matched skill cards first when you are upgrading your fighter.

That said, when you are building an extremely powerful fighter, don’t wait for matched skill cards to come around. Rare, epic, and legendary skills are actually not all that uncommon, so don’t be afraid to use them to boost the experience points of your fighter. You will typically find more of them in short order every time that you purchase the training box.

Learn how to best to mix up your fighting moves during a fight. Alternate between the weak, medium, and strong attacks to keep your opponent offguard, and learn how to anticipate and what cues to watch out for so that you can dodge or block at will. Make sure that you are in close or in the middle of a combo before using your special skills. Try to save up three of them and use them all at once.

Coins are extremely important because they are used to purchase more fighters and more upgraded packs. The main method of earning more coins is by winning fights. Go back and fight against enemies that you have previously been in order to earn more coins quickly. Also, go to the in app purchase store and you can watch advertisement videos in order to get free coins.

There is no way to earn free gold in this game so far. Gold is the premium currency and is used to purchase premium fighters without having to fight for them or spend any of the silver coins is that you have worked hard to earn. If you want to get some of the same benefits without actually earning gold, though, participate in the limited time events that are tied to large UFC promotions and earn yourself some rare fighters by ranking high.

Does Not Commute – Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Does Not Commute is a unique and hilarious strategic driving game for the iOS and Android platforms where your goal is to control an entire commute, including every single commuter on the route. This means that a short relaxing drive will quickly turn into a charlie foxtrot as the town loads up with sliding, speeding cars driving like maniacs and trying to get wherever they are going with whatever strange problems are on their minds. Read on for some tips and tricks for Does Not Commute!

As you beat more and more stages you unlock various power ups, such as a turbocharger or traction control. Generally, though, these will buff one stat and nerf another stat, and for most stages that you play, you will be better off not using any of them, instead using the stock setup. Some situations will be helped with the boosts, though; for example, use the turbochargers on a completely straight path.

Crashing is going to slow you down massively, so if you crash, take the one-second penalty and rewind that car rather than losing ten seconds or more due to losing massive amounts of speed in your car. One second is much easier to make up, whereas ten to fifteen seconds is much more difficult to make up. Take the small loss rather than the big loss.

Make sure to collect every single one of the time boosters that you can find. The time boosters will add 10 seconds, usually, but some add 20 seconds. The number inside of the orange circle will tell you how many seconds are added.

Cross over dirt roads and other shortcuts as often as you can. Each one will typically only cut off a few seconds at a time compared to the given route, but many of them taken together will save a ton of time, giving you a lot of time at the beginning of the next round post-checkpoint. And since the time that you have after the checkpoint is the time that you are given every time that you come back to it, that’s rather important to have.

Even though the stories have no relevance whatsoever to what is going on in the game, be sure to read them anyways. Read them if for no other reason then that they are just hilarious to read. Whoever wrote the dialog for this game should be a comedy writer.

Tower Slash: Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Tower Slash is a new hack and slash endless runner game for the iOS platform. Your goal is to run as far as you can, slash enemies by swiping in the right direction, and get rid of the boss characters. Go as far as you can and score as many points as you can. You can even unlock some new heroes on the way. Read on for some tips and tricks for Tower Slash!

The main vantage point shows the game as going from down to up, but turn your phone sideways and you can play from the more traditional view of left-to-right. It’s a bit easier to focus on the game this way, because it’s more natural to see the game as going from left to right, rather than from down to up.

If you lose, then you can revive yourself immediately by watching an advertisement video. You will get only one video per time that you play the game, and it can be a bit of a waste of time if you haven’t already gotten a good score or even gotten to a boss, so if you haven’t gotten all that far it is usually better to just wait until you get a better score.

If you want to get rid of the ads, then you can purchase the ability to disable them. Either that, or you can go to the control center and turn your phone to airplane mode, or shut off the data and WiFi and then go back to the game and play it. All of the involuntary ads will quit playing although you won’t be able to play the revival ads after you die either if you do this.

You can unlock new characters in this game not by any sort of currency system, but by various achievements. Kill a specific amount of minions, get a certain score, or beat a specific number of bosses and you will unlock a new character. Be sure to take advantage of their various skills, too.

You can use your power up whenever you’re able, and you will automatically run through minions. Arguably the best time to use this to when you are fighting the bosses, though. Use them as often as you can to maximize your score and your minion body count.

Super Muzzle Flash: Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Super Muzzle Flash is a new game for the iOS platform. This high score chaser has a twist to it: it’s a shooting gallery game where the only light is that which is given by your gun, so you have to shoot quickly or memorize the positions of the ghosts. Oh, and you have to do so without shooting any of the innocent bystanders that show up. Read on for some tips and tricks for Super Muzzle Flash!

Try to maintain a good tapping speed and you will not lose sight of the ghosts. The more quickly you can tap, the better you will do, but be sure not to accidentally tap on the wrong places. If you do let it go dark, then you will need to memorize the movement or location of the ghosts in order to have a chance of shooting accurately.

There are four different difficulty levels for this game, and every time that you earn 100 on your current difficulty level, you will unlock one level higher. This goes for easy, hard, insane, and Godlike modes. Game Center has different leaderboards for all four of these difficulty levels.

There are different kinds of ghosts that you can shoot as you go. One of these is the bonus ghost, which is big and bright orange and moves quickly. This one will give you 40 points in one shot. The other main one is the slow motion ghost, which will slow down all movements on the screen, as well as keep the light of the muzzle on longer after you take a shot. This will go for a specific amount of time, until you lose your combo attack.

This is one of the few games that is much easier to play on the smallest devices possible. So if you have an iPhone 4S, then congrats, you are on easy street. If you are playing this on an iPad or an iPhone 6 plus, then it is going to be a little bit more difficult to excel and exceed your previous high scores at this game. Play on whatever the smallest device is that you own.

If you want to get rid of the advertisements without having to pay any money, go to the main control center of your phone and set the phone into airplane mode. Either that, or go to the settings and shut off the data and the WiFi and then when you go back to the game and play again, the pop up ads will quit popping up.

Island Raiders: Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Island Raiders is a new iOS and Android game from the Clash of Clans school of MMO action strategy, but when it comes to how closely it follows the mothership, as your ex’s Facebook status once said, “it’s complicated”. Like DomiNations, Island Raiders comes up with a far different, more complex and more innovative way to do things, as you city-build a la CityVille, then use a series of heroes to battle against other players in an almost action-RPG fashion. Read on for some tips and tricks for Island Raiders!

Like many city building games, one thing that will speed things up greatly is to take advantage of the free speed-ups you get for anything that takes 5 minutes or less to complete. In addition, once you join up with an alliance, you can send your current building project to them to speed up. Make sure to help them out with their projects in return.

If you want to unlock more heroes, all that you have to do is upgrade the tavern, then scroll over from your original hero to the next one over, and for a specific amount of ore, you can unlock them. Once you do, they have their own troops that you can assign to them at the Rally Point. That costs recruit points, so if you run out of recruit points you will have to switch heroes or simply wait for them to recover. Battling can cause them to recover, though.

For an easy way to see what you need to upgrade, go to the main city map and look for anything with a green upward-facing arrow next to it. If you run out of stuff left to upgrade, then that means that you are overdue for an upgrade to your Tribal Hall. Once you upgrade that, you will be able to build more new buildings and upgrade more existing buildings.

One of the best uses of pearls (the premium currency of the game) is to purchase new cottages or to upgrade the ones that you already have. Doing either one will massively cut down on the time that builders need in order to work. You can find super screws in battle which can then be used to upgrade the cottages, or you can directly spend pearls on the building, or simply spend pearls on the super screws.

When sending your troops and your hero in, send your troops as quickly as possible so that they can be as close to the hero as possible, acting as an instant force multiplier. Try to put them in next to the enemy’s defensive towers first so that they can nullify the most dangerous things first.

Bouncy Bits: Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Bouncy Bits is a new endless-bouncing game for the iOS platform by Playside. Graphics look like something out of Crossy Road with the boxy style, but in this game you play as a bouncing head whose goal is to jump over and under obstacles and earn as many points as possible. Of course, you can also earn coins which can then be used to unlock new characters. Read on for some tips and tricks for Bouncy Bits!

Tapping on the screen causes your character to move downward, so you will have to time your bounce right. If you don’t time it right, you will either come down on top of the obstacle that you were trying to avoid or you will end up bouncing too soon and hit said obstacle. This differs, of course, based on how tall the obstacle is and how it’s moving. For high, floating obstacles you may have to low-bounce under them.

There is currently only one way to collect coins in this game, and that is to pick them up as you go. The farther you go in the game, the more coins will pop up, so if you want to collect all the coins that you need for more characters/bit boxes, you’ll have to grind and play over and over.

A common bit box is worth 50 coins. A rare bit box is worth 100 coins. An epic bit box is worth 500 coins. The designation of a character as rare, epic or common is arbitrary, though. They have no difference in performance; all that changes is the appearance of each character. The main difference is simply that rare and epic characters will have more elaborate trails following them.

If you want an easy way to get rid of the ads, all that you have to do is set your phone into airplane mode and play the game and the popup ads will quit appearing. Another way to do it is to turn off the cellular data on your phone or tablet, and make sure that the WiFi is not connected in its stead.

If you want to check your high score globally compared to anyone else in the world, click on the trophy logo in the lower right corner of the screen to check how you are doing on Game Center. You’ll see the top score, which is currently 100, and 100 points is very doable. Can you make 100 points?

Century City: Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

Century City is a new tap-to-win city building game for the iOS platform. Much like Cookie Clicker, Adventure Capitalist and Bitcoin Billionaire, you tap as fast as you can in order to collect more gold, then use that gold to purchase more stuff, which in turn you can then use to collect more gold. Sounds stupid, but yeah, it’s addicting. Read on for some tips and tricks for Century City!

When you go to the gold mine, tap using as many fingers at a time as you can. Three, four, or even five fingers work just fine. You’ll earn gold faster and you will build up your automatic bar, which, when full, allows you to activate auto-tap for about thirty seconds. When auto-tap is on, you can still tap manually as well for even faster gold earnings.

When you go offline for awhile, you’ll see a “G” logo above all of your buildings. Tap and hold in order to collect the gold that has been saved up. In addition, if you get sick of tapping, go to the overworld and wait for the helicopter to pass by. Tap it and you can earn free gold from the box that it’s holding (and occasionally, free gems as well).

If you want to finish a construction project right away, all you have to do is go to the date and time settings on your phone and set the time ahead by however long it takes to finish what you’re building. Then, go back to the game and finish it. After you do so, you can then go back to the date and time settings and set it back to normal, or you can repeat the trick again with the next project.

To get a ton of gold really quickly, go to the store and spend 10 gems to multiply your taps by 400 or spend 20 gems to multiply your taps by 1,000. Do this immediately after filling the auto-tap bar and then go and activate it after purchasing the tap multiplier to get the most out of your crystals. There are other things to buy with your crystals too, but this is the best way to get the most gold for the money spent.

If you get a bad result from the Gacha in the gold mine, such as losing your investment income, you can make it go away for free by watching an ad video. If you get a good outcome from it, then you can double the result of the good outcome the exact same way.

War Dragons – Tips, Tricks, Hints, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

War Dragons is a new dragon raising game from Pocket Gems, who is far more well known for Dragon Story. This, unlike those, is mostly about battling against other players, rather than simply about collecting dragons and having them. You raise dragons of multiple element types, use them to strafe and attack enemy islands, and improve your own island to load up on food, wood and gold, as well as to fortify it heavily against rivals. Read on for some tips and tricks for War Dragons!

This is a PvP game, and how well you do depends on many factors. Chief among them is how few dragons you can destroy everything on an opponent’s island with. The less dragons that you use, the more goodies and experience that you will earn, and the more bonus flames, so use one dragon if at all possible. Scout out each area beforehand in order to make a plan for what order you are going to destroy stuff in.

Load up on towers, and expand your territory in order to fill it with more defensive towers. Some towers, such as the lightning tower, will be far more effective and do more damage if you place them near each other; other than these, use a big variety of both short- and long-range towers to do maximum damage to opposing players’ dragons.

To level up your dragons, you are going to need experience points and food. Earn more experience points in battles, and then use the food to train your dragons. To level up a weak dragon, send them into battle first, then when they die, send your strong dragon into battle, Any dragon that is used in battle will gain experience points; any dragon that is not used, will gain no experience.

Always be sure to complete Ash’s missions as well as the Dragon Guard’s missions. Ash’s missions will earn you assorted bonuses, such as more food or wood, or rubies, which are the premium currency of the game. The Dragon Guard missions will earn you egg tokens, which will earn you free egg tokens. Auxiliary missions will also earn rewards and help you build up your base.

One of the best uses of your rubies is to purchase one of the very rare, epic or legendary dragons. Some of them are not available by any means other than buying them using rubies (these are few and far between, though), and especially if you happen upon a whole lot of rubies early on in the game, these can boost your performance heavily.

League of Angels: Fire Raiders – Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on TumblrPin on Pinterest

League of Angels: Fire Raiders is a new RPG for the iOS and Android platforms. While the gameplay is not exactly original, it is and can be quite engrossing. You play with a party of up to six members, and your goal is to quest through numerous stages, upgrade your characters and their equipment, and beat increasingly tougher and tougher boss characters. Read on for some tips and tricks for League of Angels: Fire Raiders!

Each time that you battle, you’ll find more equipment for your characters, and you can find more equipment in the store as well. Once you have all six equipment slots filled, upgrade the applicable character and all of their stats will increase, and the equipment will disappear, allowing you to refill their equipment again. With each upgrade that you perform, their equipment for the next level will become harder and harder to come by.

Attacks in battle are done automatically, but always be sure to watch for the skill to fill up so that you can use it. When it’s glowing yellow, it’s ready to use. This also goes for Vienna’s ultimate skills, or any other angel’s ultimate skills. Most of the time, though, you can get away without using them except for during tougher boss battles. Therefore, load up on the special attacks for when the boss comes at the end of the battle.

When you are putting a team together, especially after earning a number of new characters, look not at the current stats of all of the characters, but at all of their base stats. The current stats will be skewed in favor of your oldest party members due to level ups, equipment upgrades, and soulstone evolutions, while the new characters, while weaker at the moment, may actually have better base stats. If you want to level up a new character to get them to match your others, go to the older stages and play them again as needed.

Once you either hit level 8 or unlock VIP 1, you can blitz stages that you have already beaten. Blitzing them means that you can automatically complete a battle in literally a second. You’ll earn all of the items that you normally would earn, plus you have a higher chance at earning specific EXP items, which can then be used to power up your heroes.

In general, build your party out of the rarest characters that you can (rarity being measured by stars). Do this and you will end up with characters who tend to have higher base stats and are only a few levels and an upgrade or two away from having sky-high battle stats.
