Star Wars: Force Arena guide – Part four – Menu hints and tips

In this fourth part of the series about Star Wars: Force Arena we’re going to have a look at some of the menu mechanics that you’re going to need to make use of if you’re going to succeed in the game.

We’ll break things up with some images as well, so you can see what we’re talking about. We’re good like that. No, no don’t mention it. It’s fine, we’re here to help.

Anyway, tomorrow we’ll have a look at some more advanced tactics for when you’re actually on the battlefield, but right now let’s focus on the menus you’re going to spend a lot of time looking at.

Rewards

This is where you’ll unlock the cards you win when you play. You’ll need to actively open them once you’ve been given them, and they’ve got a countdown on them that can last for quite a long time.

It’s worth starting an unlock when you’re coming to the end of a play session so that you’ll have the new cards ready the next time you come to play.

This screen also has a number of other reward packs you can unlock at certain times, so it’s always worth coming back and checking if there’s anything new there for you.

Star Wars: Force Arena guide – Part five – Battle hints and tips

In the last part of our series on Star Wars: Force Arena we’re going to look at some hints and tips for the meat of the game – the battles.

If you’ve not checked out the other parts of our guide, well now is as good a time as any to do it. But if you’re only interested in getting some help winning fights, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

So with a little bit more ado, here’s how to make sure you’re always kicking ass and taking names in this excellent Star Wars-themed MOBA. Don’t all thank us at once, y’hear?

Wait

It’s tempting to splurge out a unit and charge out onto the field of battle. You might make a bit of progress, but it’s much smarter to take a few seconds to let your energy reserves build up.

That means you’re going to have more units when you stride out, making you a much more formidable challenge.

Sit and split

If you’ve got units that are in groups of more than two, there’s a sneaky way to use them to attack both sides of the map. Stand where your hero spawns and call out the units.

Half will go up one track, half will go up the other track. It’s a good way to keep your enemy guessing about where to send their own forces.

Think about your hero

Your hero is the most mobile of the units at your disposal, which means they&rs…

Star Wars: Force Arena guide – Part three – Light side or Dark side?

In this section of our Force Arena guide, we’re going to look at a question that pops up quite often – is it best to play as the Light Side or the Dark Side of the Force?

The answer is one that might just surprise you, but we’ll get to that in a minute. First make sure you’ve read the first two parts of our guide to ensure that you’re up to date with everything you need to know up to this point.

I’m gonna presume at this point that you’ve read those, and now I’m going to jump in with the shocking truth – it kinda doesn’t matter which side you choose. In fact, picking one is going to hinder you.

Which side are you on?

There are pros and cons of playing both sides in the game, but the important thing to remember is that the XP you earn from each of your decks goes to your profile, not just to your hero characters.

You earn XP by levelling up your cards, which means when you open card packs with cards for decks you’re not using, it’s worth upgrading them so that your level is constantly on the rise.

The one thing you need to do is make sure you have multiple different styles of deck on the go, regardless of the side of the Force they’re aligned to. That way if you’re taking a beating with one deck you can swap out and try another.

The units are all pretty similar on each side, but sometimes you’ll get more pow…

Everything about Everwing: Part 3 – Power-ups, special enemies, and gems

In this part of our Everwing guide, we’re going to take a look at the power-ups, gems, and special enemies that you can use to improve your scores. You’ll need to know what does what and when if you’re going to succeed.

But don’t you fret, we’ve put hours into the game to ensure that we’ve got a pretty good idea of what we’re talking about.

There’s plenty more Everwing content coming up on the site as well, so if you’re stuck or you need some help, make sure you check back regularly to keep on getting the best scores you possibly can.

The power-ups

There are three different power-ups in the game, and they each have their own strengths and weaknesses. And when you combine them together you’ll watch your score rocketing up like nobody’s business.

Magnet – The magnet will help you collect gems, coins, and power-ups more easily. You’ll still have to move to grab everything, but this will make it much easier.

Four leaf clover – This doubles the power of your shots for a set amount of time. Coupled with the magnet you’re likely to just see a rain of coins falling into your pocket.

Magic orb – This sends you shooting up the screen, smashing waves as you go. Weave around to score even more points.

Everything about Everwing: Part 4 – Dragons and characters

In this section of our series on Everwing, we’re going to look at the items you’re going to be spending your money on when you get deeper into the game – new dragons and new characters.

It’s with these purchases that the real scope of the game starts opening up. You’ll be earning money when you’re not even playing, evolving your creatures, and setting yourself goals for each play session.

In the last part of the series we’ll look at some advanced play tactics, but for now let’s find out the best ways to spend all of your hard earned cash.

Dragons

Your dragons are the companions you’re going to take into each battle with you. There are a number of different types of dragons and they’ll give you different boosts and buffs as you play.

Your dragons will level up as you fly with them. They’ll only get up to level 10 on their own though. It’s here that you’ll have to start evolving them.

To evolve a dragon you need another dragon of the same type that’s also been levelled up to 10. Head to the sidekicks menu and tap the dragon you want to evolve.

Tap the evolve button and you’ll see the dragons that you can use to evolve your creature. Choose one, but choose carefully. Once you’ve blended two d…

Everything about Everwing: Part 5 – Quests and advanced tips

In this final part of our Everwing series we’re going to take a look at some of the advanced tactics you can use to make even more cash as you play.

Namely we’re going to look at using quests, new characters, and extra dragons to fill up your coffers when you’re not even playing.

We’ll also give you some tricks for getting the most out of the time you’re playing the game, since we’re pretty sure that you’re going to be playing an awful lot after you’ve read all of this.

Quests

Quests are missions you can send characters on to earn you gold when you’re not even playing. They last for a set amount of time, and when they’re done you can claim the cash that your character has earned.

By the time you start unlocking new characters, your main character is going to be pretty strong, and you won’t want to send them off when you’re playing.

That doesn’t mean you can’t use them in quests though. There are two and four hour quests, so send them off when you’re going to bed and reap the rewards when you get back.

You can also use the gold you earn from playing on any character, so you can toughen up fairies that you’ve never even used so that they’re stronger when they go out to quest for…
