Guide to Rescue Reef: Tips, tricks, help, cheats and strategies

From the makers of Fluffy Friends Rescue comes an undersea rescue game, Rescue Reef for the iPhone, iPad and Android. This game lets you rescue all kinds of fish and sea creatures, and then clean them, feed them, play with them, nurture them back to health and then release them back to the wild. Sometimes, the game can get a little bit slow, or you might find that you don’t have enough money to get something done, or you just wanna speed things up, but read on for some tips and tricks!

There are ways to get buildings and decorations built a lot more quickly if you don’t feel like waiting the 20 minutes to however many hours that it takes (depending on the building), you can use the good old fashioned time trick to make it happen much more quickly. How do you do that? First, figure out what building needs the longest amount of time in order to complete construction. Let’s use 41:52 as an example (41 minutes, 52 seconds). Then, go to the settings for your phone or tablet and set the time ahead by at least 41 minutes and 52 seconds, and then go back to the game and it will all be finished.

Before you do this, though, you should try to clear all of the fish out of the caring corals and other care stations, because they will end up being lonely if you just leave them there and then set the time ahead. The longer it takes to heal a fish, though, the quicker they will turn lonely, so you have a little bit more leeway with time when it comes to a southern stingray or a seahorse than you do with a clownfish or an angelfish.

If you want to raise money faster and hold more fish, simply load up on breeding pens (which cost barely any more money to buy than the base level playpens) and stack them with two of the same fish. Once they breed, you will earn a LOT more coins and experience points for all three of them (including the breeded fish) than you will for just one fish at a time. In addition, you can leave fish in breeding pens for an extended amount of time if you’re going away, and they will not get lonely.
