Jungle Heat is a new iOS and Android action strategy game by My.com. Gameplay will be familiar to anyone who has played Battle Beach, Clash of Clans, Backyard Monsters or Edgeworld, as your goal is to collect resources (in this case, gold and oil), train troops that can defend your jungle base, build your base into a powerhouse, and build your defenses up until they are downright impenetrable. Read on for some tips and tricks for Jungle Heat!
Jungle Heat offers almost nothing in the way of tutorials, so after you’re done with the initial bare-bones tutorial, you’re kind of left to your own devices. It’s fairly simple – level up your gold and oil producing buildings (and add more of them), then use them to build up your military buildings, and to upgrade them. Upgrade your command center to unlock new buildings, such as the armory, which allows you to level up your troops.
When attacking other bases, try to beat the bases with the fewest amount of troops possible, since any deployed troop is gone when the battle is over. A good strategy to get easy resources is to use your slashers to distract the fire of the cannons, then send in the spies to raid for resources. Once you get the gunners, use them to quickly take out defenses (such as cannons). Blow holes in walls using the Bombers to make things easier for the rest of your troops.
You’re going to run out of diamonds quickly if you constantly use them to speed up your building, but completing achievements will earn you more diamonds. Tap on the achievements list to see what you have to do. They’ll earn you both diamonds and experience.
Send in a slasher or a spy to areas when you suspect that a mine may be planted somewhere. Better to have one soldier take out a mine then to have them damage your entire army. Also, look for random little green patches inside of peoples’ bases when you attack them. Tap on these tiny little squares and you can send your troops in behind enemy lines.
Defensively, not only should you maximize your cannons, watchtowers and other defensive items, but crowd your buildings as close together as possible in order to maximize how many of them can fit in the range of your defensive units. This also enables you to build less walls while still completely surrounding your jungle with walls.
