It’ll be time to turn up the heat and burn major rubber for all long-time Carmageddon fans out there, as the destructive racer squeals its way onto iOS and Android from today. A respectful reinvention of the controversial car franchise, Carmageddon: Crashers aims to be the antidote to dreary drag strip racing games of times past.
Featuring a suite of classic Carmageddon cars to collect and race around in, Crashers tasks players to work their way up the top of the Crashers league, defeating all enemies in your way. This is drag racing with a difference however, with cars starting from opposite ends of the drag strip in order to race as opposed to simply edging each other out over the finishing line. But will your car do the wrecking or becoming a wreck itself?
A bunch of seriously unhinged Mini Bosses and Zone Bosses plague your path on the road to victory, so it pays to buy new cars and upgrade them. Fill up a garage full of metal mangling machines in time and you’ll be ready to take on sponsors and boost your winnings. Just be sure not to get yourself in a tailspin.
A whole host of power ups help provide a competitive edge, un…
In this last part of our guide to Gangstar: New Orleans we’re going to walk you through some of the tips and tricks you’re going to need to climb to the top of the criminal ladder. Is criminality a ladder? I honestly have no idea.
Anyway, we hope you’ve enjoyed reading through the guide, and that it’s helped you chase your dreams of becoming the best (worst?) criminal that New Orleans has ever seen. That’s the dream, right?
Without further ado, here’s some words to lead you through that final stretch. And if you’ve got any ideas of your own to add, feel free to stick them in the comments at the bottom of the article.
It might sound like a silly thing to say, but not dying is key to success in New Orleans. Mainly because it costs you currency every time your health bar drops to zero.
Soemtimes it’s worth considering your options. Should you spend some gems to get a health pack and keep on breathing, or toss away a chunk of gold to the doctor once you’ve died.
Then of course there’s the third option of just running away. That’s obviously not so easy when you’re playing one of the boxed-in missions, but if you’re in the open world sections it’s a perfectly viable strategy.
Check the time
One thing to remember is that the quicker you complete missions, the more stars you’re going to get. If you’re not getting three stars on a regular basis then it’s def…
Easter is here, and that can only mean one thing. Pokemon GO has been updated! Actually it probably means a lot more than that, but that’s the thing I’m focusing on because I don’t know how much content I’d be able to get out of eggs and zombie Jesus.
So instead I’m going to write about the Pokemon GO eggstravaganza. So I guess I am writing about eggs. Look, it’s been a long day and I don’t know where my wallet is so let’s just try and get this over and done with then we can all go have a nice long weekend.
What is it?
The eggstravaganza is the latest update to Pokemon GO. It’s come out just in time for the Easter break, and it’s brought with it some new tweaks that are likely to make you smile while you stuff chocolate facsimiles of chicken periods into your face.
Well, there’s now a wider range of Pokemon in the 2km eggs. So that’s a pretty good reason to put some shoes on and go for a wander. Plus every egg that you hatch is going to give you more candy. ‘Tis the season, after all.
The Pokemon that pop out are going to level up faster as well, thanks to the fact they get double XP. Basically Pokemon GO really wants you to start wandering around, collecting more Pokemon, and having a lovely old time in the sunshine.
Lucky Eggs are also on sale in the store. They’re 50% off, which is a pretty good deal, and using one of those will get you quadruple XP. Which sounds ridic…
So you’ve got this far in Gangstar: New Orleans, but now you’re looking for some tips and tricks that are going to push your criminality on to the next level. Well don’t you worry, we’re here to help.
In this fourth part of our guide to Gameloft’s latest crime sim we’re going to look at some advanced tips to make sure that you’re pushing your empire of wrongdoing in the right direction.
Tomorrow we’ll throw out some tips and hints to finish things off, but right now we’re going to focus on making sure players who’ve stuck a lot of time into the game are pushing in the right direction. I mean, it’d be embarrassing if they weren’t, right?
Choose your battles
It’s important to make sure you’re tough enough for the challenge that you’re facing. That doesn’t just mean being at the level the game requires, it means being well over it.
If you’re only a couple of points stronger than the game is suggesting, you need to go and grind some challenges and get some more upgrade materials to push you higher.
It might seem like a boring way around things, but the stronger you are the easier you’re going to find the challenges. And by the same token, the better you’re going to do in them.
Upgrade your car
Make sure you’re not just upgrading your weapons but you’re upgrading your vehicles as well. It’s all well and good having super strong guns, but your car needs to be on form as well.
In today’s instalment of our Gangstar: New Orleans guide, we’re going to look at how you can get the most out of the game without paying a shiny penny. There are a number of ways to do this, and we’ll break them down for you.
Tomorrow we’re going to look at some more advanced tips and tricks, because that’s the sort of thing we like to do on Thursday. So make sure you come back for that if you can, it’d be lovely to see you.
Right now though, put your wallet away and let’s pick through some strategies that will ensure you’re not bankrupting yourself to be the best criminal that ever did crime.
Make sure you check in regularly to get as many rewards as you can. The game isn’t shy when it comes to giving away spirit jars, so ensure you’re getting as many of them as you can. Check your menu regularly to see what you’ve got.
The same goes for your achievements. You get rewarded as you play, so make sure you grab everything the game is giving you to fill up your coffers. You won’t just get spirit jars, you’ll get cash and upgrade materials too.
Every day you get a bunch of new quests to perform. It’s important to work through these every 24 hours, because the rewards you get should sustain you for a good long while.
You even get a quest that involves completing all the quests. They’re not easy, but they’ll…
Gangstar: New Orleans is the latest in Gameloft’s murdery crime franchise. Think GTA on mobile and you’re about half way there. Well, actually you’re about all of the way there.
But what do you need to know before you jump into the game’s world of car-jackings, drug deals, and all manner of other underworld activities? Well, you need to know everything in the list just below.
You can click on the emboldened name of the game to head over to the App Store where you can download it for free. And join us next week where we’ll be going over the game with a fine-tooth comb in one of our massive guides.
In a break to our regularly scheduled content, I figured I should probably write something about the new Pokemon game that’s just come out on the App Store.
Yeah, you read that right, there’s a new Pokemon game on the App Store. How could I write about anything else when I’m so excited about all of those Pokemon and the balls and all the rest of that stuff.
Anyway, here’s a break down of all the stuff you need to know about Pokemon Duel. So you can just jump straight in and start duelling some Pokemon. Classic.
What is it?
It’s not your standard Pokemon game, that’s for sure, and it’s not the sort of thing that’s likely to make as much noise as Pokemon GO. What it is is a strategy boardgame that sees you using your Poke-deck to beat a foe.
You collect different Pokemon and then use them to take control of a grid. There are little fights that involve spinning a wheel, and cards you can play that change some of the effects that your monsters have.
What’s the set up?
You’re working your way through a series of fights to prove you’re the best. I think the opening cinematic heavily suggests that if you’re victorious you’ll nab yourself a giant tower. Which is sort of cool.
Put in your own name, play a few practice bouts, and you’re good to go. But don’t be surprised if you get trounced to begin with.
There’s a surprising amount of depth here, in spite of the fact that thing…
Android owners with a penchant for RTS titles can celebrate: publishers En Masse Entertainment have released their successful title, Battleplans, for Android systems and no longer just Apple products. However, Apple users will be pleased to discover a new update for the title on iOS devices.
Revolving around the gist of the strategy genre, whilst incorporating modern elements such a precision-planning and real-time integration, Battleplans opens up the genre to a vast mass of prospective players.
By either following the main story of ‘Skulls’, where players must strive to advance the skills and special abilities of their playable heroes, or unlocking the endless element of the real-time world, the title ensures hours of immersive gameplay.
The update includes the introduction of a new playable hero: Taigar the Huntress, a quirky little character who is rather fond of sleeping in trees and whose special ability is the Mystical Stag.
CEO of En Masse Entertainment, Sam Kim, wrote of the recent release: “Battleplans provides a fresh, new spin on real-time strategy games and fills a need in the marketplace.
“Players will find themselves immediately getting to the fun elements of an RTS with easy controls to build heroes and squads, as well as scalable resourc…
