The best hints, tips, and tricks for Into the Dead 2

Into the Dead 2 is a pretty darn slick mixture of auto-runner and FPS. It’s all about weaving through hordes of zombies, shooting them in the face while you can, and trying not to die. Although it’s pretty cool when you die because you briefly get to see your own organs before you succumb to the nomming of the undead.

But if you’d rather avoid getting your innards ripped out, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put a good few hours into the game since it hit the App Store at the end of last week, and we reckon we’ve collated some slick-ass hints and tips to make sure you’re going to get the most out of the game.

So without further ado, let’s get cocked, locked, and ready to rock. By which I mean let’s begin the lesson. The lesson about not getting eaten by zombies. In Into the Dead 2. I’m sorry but it’s highly unlikely that these tips are going to help if there ever is an actual zombie apocalypse.

Watch your bullets

One of the most common causes of death in the game involves running out of ammo at the worst possible time. Rather than blasting out a bullet, you run head first into a pack of the undead and it’s game over before you’ve even got a chance to think.

Grabbing more ammo isn’t the key to getting past this though. Yeah you’ll have more bullets, but it’s no use if they’re not in your gun. Swapping to a different weapon is slightly quicker than reloading, but you can also dodge zombies while you’re stuffing ne…

Hints, tips, and tricks for No Brakes io

No Brakes io is a mix between all those .io games you’ve played and Amiga classic Skidmarks. In other words, it’s a pretty twitchy racer that involves swooping your way around a series of different tracks.

The big twist is that it’s a multiplayer game, and the rewards you get at the end of the race are based on how high up the rankings you finished. Or if you finished at all.

It might seem like a pretty simple proposition, but there’s actually quite a lot going on here. So I figured it’d be a good idea to bash together a guide to make sure you’re getting the most out of the experience. And always crossing that finish line first.

Don’t crash

The key to the game is not crashing. Yes there are other players to overtake, and crossing the finishline first is going to get you a pretty decent reward, but bashing through as many checkpoints as possible is important too.

Hit the wall of the course and you’ll crash. Crash and it’s game over. You’ll get a chunk of coins depending on how many of the checkpoints you’ve made it through, but obviously the more you make it through, the better the reward.

You don’t always have to race

Just because there are other players, doesn’t mean you have to get involved with them. If someone’s trying to goad you into a race, pushing you about, take a breath and try and find a more comfortable line.

That is, of course, until you’re a bit better at the gam…

Hints, tips, and tricks for Rolly Vortex

Rolly Vortex is a game about, well, rolling through a vortex. I mean, you’re pretty smart, you could probably have worked that out for yourself, right? I’m sorry, I’ll try and be less patronising next time round.

Anyway, just because you know what Rolly Vortex is, doesn’t mean you’re getting the most out of it. Sure it looks simple, but there are actually some hidden depths here, if you start poking around with your fingers and the other bits of you you use to find things out.

Which is why I thought I’d cobble together a beginner’s guide. Just to ensure that when you first come to rolling through that vortex you’re going to be the best roller that the world has ever seen. Or at least in the top five.

Roll smart

Collecting the red orbs might seem like it’s key to the game, but if you die trying to get one then that’s the end of your run. Don’t take undue chances when you don’t have to. Focus on moving through the obstacles and the red orbs will essentially collect themselves.

Roll wide

Don’t try and chance your way through small gaps. Sometimes they’re your only option, but more often than not there’s another way to bypass an obstacle, so try and take that if it’s possible.

If a narrow gap is the only way forward, then make sure you hit it right in the middle. The game’s collision detection can be pretty cruel if you get things wrong, so try not to give it a chance to dick you over.…

Gangstar New Orleans guide for iPhone, iPad, and Android – Part 4: Advanced tips

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.

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…
