Merge Dungeon Guide – Get The Best Equipment With These Hints, Tips and Tricks

Merge Dungeon is a game that mashes together simple merging gameplay with some meatier RPG elements. Your merges create equipment for your team of heroes, which you need to equip, swap and strengthen.

It's a simple enough game, but there are some hints and tips that we reckon are going to help out. And, lucky for you, we've played a bunch of the game and discovered some helpful suggestions that we reckon are going to help you out.

Have you played the game? Got your own tricks that you think are going to help other players out? Then make sure you let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the article. Before that, though, here's our guide to Merge Dungeon.

Click here to discover more guides for the best, biggest and most popular mobile games

Equip All Your Characters

The game doesn't teach you this in the brief tutorial, but you need to merge and equip all of your characters. How do you do that? Well, you need to tap on the character on the top of the screen to switch to a different merge board.

When you've done that you can produce new items that you can equip to the different characters. Strengthen up all of your characters and you'll find that the game is an awful lot easier.

Check Your MP

You need MP to produce new items to merge. You can see how much MP you've got in the blue vial on the right of the screen. If you don't have enough you can refill it by tapping. You only get a few of these refills, so use them sensibly.

Without MP you can still merge the items that are on screen, you just can't add any more. Be smart about what you're doing and you'll soon find that you're going to get a better feel for the experience.

Use Your Special Moves

Each of your characters have special moves. You'll see when they're charged up, even if you're not on their screen, because a circle will flash up around them. Special moves can deal damage and they can also heal your characters.

Don't waste your special moves – if there aren't any enemies on the screen then don't smash out an attack because it won't do any good. Healing when you get the chance is a great idea though.

Check Which Equipment Is Better

When you merge new equipment, it has different stats. Tap on the piece of equipment and you'll be able to compare it with what you've already got equipped. See which is best and replace what you've got if necessary.

You'll get the piece you've not used back in your merging screen, so you'll be able to combine it to make something new. Always check whether what you've just made is stronger than what you've already got.

Good Sudoku Review – It is Good Sudoku, You're Right

Good Sudoku (download from the App Store) is the latest game from Zach Gage, the developer behind the likes of Really Bad Chess, Pocket-Run Pool and Flip Flop Solitaire. While it might sound like it fits into the same canon as those re-workings of classic games, it's actually something a lot simpler.

Rather than reinventing the sudoku wheel, Good Sudoku is more like a gorgeously presented sudoku training program. It doesn't ask you to think outside of the box – instead it gives you new and easier ways to think within that box.

Where Really Bad Chess messed around with the fundamentals of the game, here you're learning, step-by-step, about how to become a better sudoku player. The digital additions are designed to make things easier and, in the long run, more enjoyable.

Good Sudoku, Nice Sudoku

Essentially Good Sudoku offers up everything you need to play quick and entertaining games of the number puzzler. And when things get more tricky, it gives you all the tools and tips you need to cope.

You can take notes, mark squares with potential numbers, and with just a tap find out if there are any cells that you can only put one number in. It makes things flow in a brilliant way, and means you don't have to be constantly scanning the grid – Good Sudoku is only too happy to do that for you.

That's not to say the game is holding your hand – there are still some fiendish puzzles to get to grips with here. But unlike a lot of other games it seems genuinely interested in making you not just a better sudoku player, but a happier one as well.

Throw in some lovely simple presentation, well-written tutorials that walk you through everything and a clever number pad that lets you input your integers, and you're left with another soothing and absorbing Zach Gage hit.

The Outer Worlds [Switch] Review – Out of this World?

Attempting to port The Outer Worlds to the Switch was incredibly ambitious, but developer Virtuos have done an impressive job. Whether the game itself is a good fit for the system…is another matter altogether. 

A sprawling space-set RPG, The Outer Worlds sees you playing as your own custom-made colonist – one who awakens on your ship much later than anticipated, and ends up heading straight into a conspiracy set across a massive solar system.

From the off it's clear the game's massive scope and setting hasn't been cut down in this port – with all the locations and dialogue remaining intact.

Which is just as well, seeing as it harks back to the older Fallout titles. This is because there's a significant focus on conversations, with branching dialogue trees enabling you to convince characters to fight, trade, co-operate, and – well, a lot more besides.

So it's just as well this dialogue is consistently well written, with characters being clearly defined. There's no lazy repetition in NPCs, and every being you encounter has to be treated in a different way.

It's possible to get through the game without fighting anyone if you wish of course, but it's also easy to do the exact opposite. You may want to avoid doing the latter though, as the combat is often quite unsatisfying and messy. It's not broken by any means, but certainly isn't where the game shines.

Everything is then wrapped up with a levelling up system that is multi-faceted, but not as daunting as you might think – even if you're a newbie to the genre.

Almost every element of your character can be tweaked and levelled up, and then there's the chance to enlist companions to come with you on missions – adding further possibilities in terms of foraging environments and (if you wish) battling the many enemies you'll bump into.

The Outer Worlds is often not a great fit for the Switch though due to the detailed menus and realms of tiny text being thrown at you – when playing in handheld mode at least.

There's also the inevitable hit to the game's visuals – which were never stunning, but the way they've been simplified here can often detract significantly from the spectacle.

Performance wise it works as it should, but perhaps only consider this Switch port if you have no alternative format to choose from.

Office Life 3D Guide – Complete Every Task With These Hints, Tips and Tricks

If you've got a hankering for life in the office during these trying pandemic times, then Office Life 3D might be able to help out. It's a simple game of menial tasks that replicates office existence. There isn't any banal conversation, but hey, it's pretty close.

While the game is pretty simple, there are some more challenging sections that you might need help with. And that's where this guide comes in. We've played hundreds of levels of the game, and discovered some hints, tips and tricks that we reckon are going to help you out.

If you've played the game and have your own suggestions, we'd love to hear them. So make sure you stick them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. Before that, though, here are the best hints, tips and tricks that we've dug up for Office Life 3D.

For more hints, tips and tricks for the best and most popular mobile games, click right here

Match the Colors

There are plenty of levels that really only involve checking the colors of things and putting them in the right position. All you need to do is pick objects of the same hue and put them in the same place and you're going to finish the challenge.

Sometimes you'll also need to match colored objects to colored receptacles – like in the levels where you've got discs and disc drives. These are some of the simplest challenges in the game, so just check out the hues and you'll be well on your way.

Swipe to Delete

On the email deleting levels, you might find yourself a bit stuck to start off with. All you need to do is find the emails that aren't marked with the correct symbol and delete them. But how do you delete them?

Well, it's a simple case of swiping them to the left. They'll turn red and disappear. Make sure you don't delete any important emails – which are marked with a specific symbol shown at the top of the screen – otherwise you're going to fail the level.

Practice Your Swing

On the golf and trash-clearing levels, it's important to find what works and then replicate it. Use your first shot as a warm-up to check the distance or angle you're going to need. If it goes too far, or not far enough, we can pretty much guarantee you're going to be able to adjust accordingly and nail the next three shots.

Obviously if you get a hit with your first shot, then just replicate that. You usually have five chances to make three shots, so even if your first one doesn't go in, you're not wasting it so long as you're learning from your mistakes.

Make the Dinosaur Jump

On the levels where you've got a computer with a dinosaur on the screen, you're essentially taking some time off. All you need to do here is play a level of the dinosaur game to completion in order to finish the challenge and get to the next one.

You need to focus on jumping over the cacti that stick up from the bottom of the screen. Get over all of those and you'll reach a flag, which represents the end of the challenge.

Check the Symbols

When you're shredding and saving documents, you need to make sure you're sticking the right ones in the keep pile. It isn't just about matching the signature, you also need to check the symbols on the document as well.

Shredding or saving the wrong document is going to fail the level, so take your time and check exactly what the game is asking of you. If there aren't the correct symbols on the sheet of paper, shred it and move on to the next.

Update – Every Apple Arcade Game of 2020 Played and Rated

The best thing about Apple Arcade is that there are just so many games to sink your teeth into. The worst thing about Apple Arcade is that there isn't enough time in the day to take a bite out of all of the games on offer. Which is why we've created this list breaking down what you can expect from every new game to hit Apple's subscription gaming service this year.

This list covers all of the new Apple Arcade games that have landed in 2020, and tells you enough about them that you're going to know whether diving in is going to be for you. Don't know what Apple Arcade is? Well you can click here to read our full guide on what it is, how to get it and why it's so great.

We're going to be updating it regularly, as and when new games come out, so make sure you keep checking back to stay on top of everything Apple Arcade related. But for now, here come the games.

Updated on July 27th

The Lullaby of Life

A gorgeous puzzle experience that's painted in some of the brightest colors we've seen in a long time. The key to the game is music – you're a weird blob with the power to create special tones, and those tones can unlock all sorts of magical possibilities.

You'll collect friends, each with their own unique notes, and you'll need to use them to solve puzzles and explore deeper into the game. It's relaxing, easy to pick up, and the perfect way to waste a few hours on a rainy day. We might sound like a broken record – especially compared to The Lullaby of Life – but this is another massive hit for Apple Arcade.


If they gave out awards for the games with the best names, then Necrobarista would definitely be up for one. This stylish and gorgeous visual novel doesn't just have a great title though, it's also a super immersive and engaging adventure.

Expect to meet weird and interesting characters and visit bonkers locations in this tale of caffeinated beverages, ghosts and magic. Even if you're not a fan of visual novels, this one is well worth picking up. Full of heart, humour and suspense, this is a brilliantly written escapade that you should download right away.


The second Amanita Design game on Apple Arcade is a puzzling adventure set in a subterranean mansion. The game is utterly beautiful, with the hand-painted artwork that Amanita is known for. Unlike plenty of its other games though, this one isn't a point-and-clicker.

There are definite shades of the original Prince of Persia here, albeit with a gloomier style. You're going to be trying to escape from horrid furniture monsters, clambering down ladders and solving tricky puzzles as you do. Amanita Design games are always well worth checking out, and this one is no exception.

Beyond A Steel Sky

The long-awaited sequel to a 90s classic has finally arrived on Apple Arcade. It's a massive cyberpunk adventure that sees you returning to Union City in search of a lost child. Expect cheeky robots, a massive conspiracy and some head-scratching puzzles.

The slow pace of the game isn't going to be to everyone's liking, but there's a massive story to explore here. If you're a fan of the original you're going to fall in love all over again with the ongoing adventures of Robert Foster.

Little Orpheus

Little Orpheus is exactly the sort of game that Apple Arcade was made for. It's a deep, engaging, hilarious platforming adventure that ticks all of the right boxes. It's super polished, with some of the best graphics we've seen on mobile in a long time.

You play a Russian in the 60's who's exploring a mythical land at the centre of the earth. There are giant insects, dinosaurs and more. The platforming is super slick, and the story is brilliant enough to keep you playing for hours. Do yourself a favour and get this one downloaded as soon as you can.

SpongeBob: Patty Pursuit

Calling Patty Pursuit an auto-runner would be doing the game a pretty spectacular disservice. It has more in common with the Rayman Run series than any run-of-the-mill runner. It's a slick, gorgeous cartoon platformer that takes the sprinting out of your hands.

There's still loads to explore, a decent level of challenge and some tough if repetitive bosses to destroy. The level of polish here is spot on, from the perfect controls to the voice-acting, everything screams quality. This is definitely one of the best platformers available on Apple Arcade, and we dare you to play without a big grin on your face.

Towers of Everland

A first person fantasy RPG that sees you travelling into the titular towers to find gold, glory and a whole bunch of monsters to hack and slash. The game mixes casual gameplay with a massive world to explore, and plenty of secrets to uncover as well.

There's a tactical bent to the combat here, with blocking and forcing your enemies away just as important as swiping with your sword. Towers of Everland mixes retro and modern ideas into a really pleasing and engrossing package.

Winding Worlds

A smart puzzler with a really interesting control system. You're swiping to move the levels around, changing the plane and perspective to achieve your goals. Winding Worlds looks gorgeous, with a thick-lined cartoon style that really pops off the screen.

A story pushes everything along, and features a mysterious worm, an adorable dog, and a talking windmill robot. Winding Worlds is a charming distraction that's going to put a big smile on your face. It won't stick around in your mind for long, but you're going to love it while you play it.


The latest game for Apple Arcade is a really interesting board game mash-up. There are shades of Stranger Things here – you play survivors half-trapped in a weird world and you need to defend against monster attacks if you want to make it through.

Things start off pretty easily, but as you progress you'll get into more and more trouble. Your ultimate aim is to clear out the anchors that are keeping the monsters in the real world. Once you've done that you need to make a run for the exit.

The_Otherside is smart and entertaining, offering a perfect mix of tactics and action. It's tense in all the right ways, and manages to capture the thrill of tabletop gaming pretty much perfectly.


A haunting and harrowing platform adventure game starring a small boy. That's probably made you think of Limbo, but Neversong walks its own path. It's more open in its storytelling, and deals with a lot of interesting and incredibly difficult themes.

On top of that, it's also super smart, dripping with difficult puzzles and will have you hooked from the get-go. There are a few niggles here, and we had a couple of crashes when we played. Beyond those problems Neversong is a gorgeous-looking game that will stay with you a long time after you reach the end.

A Fold Apart

This one is a gorgeous, narrative driven puzzler that's all about folding paper to create paths. It starts simply enough, but as you play it adds more and more ideas into the fray. It fits into a similar genre box as the likes of Framed and Gorogoa.

The game has a gorgeous look all of its own, and the controls are easy enough that almost anyone can play. A Fold Apart has a massive heart that shines through everything it does – this is one Apple Arcade game that's going to leave you with a big smile on your face.

Beyond Blue

A beautiful adventure game that sees you travelling through the oceans of the world. Set in the near future, you're part of a team of research scientists who are exploring the depths of the sea. You'll interact with all manner of creatures, from enormous whales to sprigs of coral.

Some of the translation isn't great, and the lack of action might put some people off. But if you're looking for an open world adventure with a difference then you're definitely going to fall in love with this one.


First off it's important to note that the title of this game is a pun, which always gets an upvote from us. You play as a robot in a post-apocalyptic waste that's littered with trash. It's up to you to pick up the mess that humankind has left behind and deposit it in a garbage truck.

At the same time, other robots are trying to stop you from getting to that sweet, sweet junk. You need to fight them off, grab the garbage and toss it into the waiting truck. There's a lot to take in, and sometimes the simple controls aren't quite up to the task. But, Scrappers is still an awful lot of fun. Check it out.

Legend of the Skyfish 2

This is a sequel, as you can probably tell from the name, but don't worry if you haven't played the original. The game plays a lot like classic Zelda – you're an adventurer out to save the world by hacking, slashing and solving puzzles.

The game looks gorgeous and it plays brilliantly. There's a massive world to explore and it unlocks as you get new skills and items. This is definitely one of the best games available on Apple Arcade, with hours of fun just waiting to be discovered.


Spyder is a really interesting stealth game that sees you taking control of the titular espionage drone. It's up to you to skitter through a series of levels, saving the world as you do. The first challenge involves stopping a nuclear missile launch, so you know there's a lot of stake.

One of the most interesting things the game does is make you think about the environment in a different way. Hazards that are dangerous to a tiny insect robot aren't threatening to humans and vice versa – sure you can clamber around on vertical surfaces, but wander into some spilt coffee and you'll take damage.

This is a really slick game with plenty of interesting content. Imagine a puzzler, a platformer and a sneak-'em-up getting together and pushing all of their best bits into a blender and the end result would be something like Spyder. Definitely up there among the best new Apple Arcade games of 2020.


What happens when you combine Peggle with an ARPG? Something like Roundguard happens. It's a game about firing adventurers out of a giant catapult and letting them smash into your enemies. There's more depth than the ping-ping play of Peggle, with health points, mana and more to take into consideration before you blast out a shot.

There are roguelike elements here as well, and new equipment to unlock as you play. Throw in a massive map, plenty of characters and a whole heap of loot to collect and you're left with a super-slick Apple Arcade title that's not quite the sum of its parts but it's still an awful lot of fun.

Doomsday Vault

A puzzling platformer that sees you controlling an adorable little robot. You're tromping round a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but rather than killing everything that moves, Doomsday Vault is all about saving things. Specifically it's about saving plants – each level you're searching for a seed to add to the titular vault, pocketing the last of the earth's greenery to try and preserve it. 

There's a strong environmental message here, but it doesn't get in the way of the smart touchscreen gameplay and the lovely visuals. Doomsday Vault is a glimpse into a human-less future, but it manages to be adorable and challenging as well.

No Way Home

A space survival game set in a procedurally generated universe. You're piloting a beaten up escape pod, the last survivor of a tragic ice cream machine accident, and you need to get back to Earth. Unfortunately you've got no idea where you are and your only companion is a slightly bonkers AI. 

No Way Home is more like an action RPG than a standard roguelike, with twin stick blasting the order of the day. You also have a cool grappling hook that you can use to throw things, and enemies, around the screen. This is a meaty, lovely looking intergalactic adventure with its tongue in its cheek and its heart in the right place.

Butter Royale

This one takes the shape of the battle royale genre, then smears it with butter and makes it top down. Not in a weird way though. You're pelting around an ever-shrinking arena, picking up guns, ammo and shields, and trying to be the last adorable cartoon critter standing.

Don't let the cutesy graphics fool you – this one can get pretty tense, especially when the ring has closed to its tightest and there are more than two of you left. It doesn't have the meaty casing of the likes of Fortnite, and it's unlikely to stick in the memory for long, but it's certainly fun while it lasts.

Secret Oops!

What happens when you take a stealth game, wrap it up in a boardgame coat and then throw in some AR and multiplayer for a laugh? Well, you end up with something like Secret Oops! It's probably one of the most unique experiences on Apple Arcade right now, but if you're going to be playing it on your own you might be a little disappointed.

The game's so much more entertaining when you're playing it with friends in the same room, when laughter and barracking get in the way of some of the more frustrating aspects that are a little too obvious when you're playing by yourself. Get some chums round though, and you're going to have an awesome time.

Charrua Soccer

A charming throwback to the golden era of the football game – when all tackles involved sliding, every player had a massive head, and sometimes your keeper decided to leg it out of the goal for no discernible reason. Charrua Soccer is fast, frantic, and dripping with arcade cool.

Sure it might not have the meat on its bones of the likes of FIFA, but it's not trying to. This is the sort of game you pick up for 20 minutes, bash in a few goals, and then wander off to do something else. If you get all misty eyed at the mention of Sensible Soccer or FIFA 96, then this is one game you should be picking up right now.

Loud House: Outta Control

This one's based on the Nickelodeon cartoon series The Loud House, and it's all about trying to keep on top of the chaos. Characters wander onto the screen and you need to guide them to their goal by drawing a route. But if they bump into one another you're going to have to start the level all over again.

There are bonus objectives, clouds that start fights and much, much more here, all presented in a lovely hand-drawn aesthetic that fans of the show are really going to dig. It might not be for everyone, but the fast-paced puzzling on offer in Loud House: Outta Control is definitely worth checking out.

Crossy Road Castle

From the makers of Crossy Road, this one is a competitive platformer that has some amazing ideas up its pixel art sleeve. We don't think we were wrong when we described it as Apple Arcade's killer app in our review. Click here and you can read every word of said Crossy Road Castle review.

The controls are brilliant, the art style is perfect and the game showers new ideas and concepts on you at a regular basis. Where other retro-looking platformers like to ape what's come before, Crossy Road Castle strides out on its own, and it's ruddy brilliant because of that. It's great on your own, it's amazing with friends and it comes highly recommended.

Epic Odyssey is an SRPG with Open World Exploration, Gacha Summons, and More

Gacha-RPGs have become hugely popular over the last few years, which inevitably means that a lot of copycat games have appeared on the mobile app stores. 

The formula for a successful free-to-play RPG is so difficult to crack that developers are apparently reluctant to meddle with it too much, which is why we're always delighted when games like Epic Odyssey come along. 

Developed by Vietnamese studio Hiker Games, Epic Odyssey is a gacha-RPG with a couple of key differences. Firstly, it looks incredible, with clean, colorful high fantasy characters and a bold cartoony aesthetic. And secondly, it gives you a huge open world to navigate at your leisure. 

Simplicity is key to the game's appeal. Epic Odyssey gives you a stripped-back selection of hero classes and factions – just three of each – and lets you pit teams of five heroes against enemy teams in auto-battles. 

These heroes have plenty of personality, with their own backstories, animations, dialogue, skills, and more.

Being a gacha game, Epic Odyssey lets you acquire these heroes through summoning. You can merge any duplicates in your inventory, and churn the low-tier heroes into higher tier ones to level them up. All very much in keeping with gacha game conventions. 

More unusual is the world map of Lynea Continent, a huge open space that you can explore freely, opening chests, chatting to NPCs, accepting quests, solving puzzles, and getting into battles. 

Presented from an isometric perspective, this element of the game plays almost like a classic Diablo-style action-RPG, albeit with auto-combat rather than the customary hacking and slashing. 

It's an engaging format, but you don't have to be engaged with it to make progress. Epic Odyssey also offers idle features, allowing you to make progress while AFK, cutting out the need to grind.

Epic Odyssey looks like the ideal gacha-RPGs for gamers who aren't necessarily taken by gacha-RPGs.

It's free right now on Google Play and the App Store, and we recommend checking it out. Redeem the code ODYSSEY in-game to grab extra freebies too.

Don't Waste Your Special

Your special move is a brilliant way of turning the tide of a battle. You unleash it by lifting your finger off the screen. It's represented by a circle – the bigger the circle, the further your special move is going to fire outwards. You increase the size of the circle by killing.

Any enemies that only take a single shot to kill are going to die if they're within the circle when you lift up your finger. So don't waste it when there's not that many foes in its blast radius. And definitely don't fire it accidentally, because that's a massive waste.

Don't Get Cornered

It's important to keep on the move, and ensure that you're not backed into a corner. Stick to the centre of the levels and don't let the enemies push you backwards.

Instead, circle around them. That way you're still shooting, you're keeping out of harm's way and you're not going to end up stuck in a cul-de-sac that leads to your death.

Set Traps

You can use the environment to your own advantage. When there's a break or a piece of scenery that the enemies have to work their way around, stand on the other side of it and shoot them while they go past.

There are other ways to trap your foes as well. Make sure you experiment with how you play. The key is keeping a sensible distance from the killer blobs, while still being able to take them down with your pistols and special move.

Buy a Pet

When you've earned 1500 bucks, you should spend it on a pet. They're not just a cute partner, they'll also attack the monsters that get too close to you. It doesn't really matter which one you buy, and they're all the same price.

You can't stack your pets either – you can only take one into battle at once. Pick the one you want and then stick with it. You can spend any other money you make on getting new outfits, but they're just cosmetic.

Hit MMORPG MU Origin Gets an Anniversary Event and a Nobility System as It Hits v14.0

MU Origin, from Korean developer Webzen, has just passed not one but two milestones. Not only is the game celebrating its fourth birthday, but it's just reached version 14.0. 

The first mobile descendant of 2001 PC MMO MU Online, MU Origin is a huge fantasy MMORPG set on the expansive MU continent. It sees you picking a class and romping through a huge story campaign.

There are several distinct environments to explore, PvP battles, dungeons, quests, and much, much more. MU Origin is one of the biggest and best multiplayer RPG experiences on mobile. 

It's also one of the most frequently updated. In a few short years MU Origin has reached its mid-teens, and the 14.0 update brings a host of new features.

First up, there's the Nobility system, which gives you stronger reverse effects. It unlocks after you reach reverse level 30, and consists of Nobility Grade, Nobility Dungeon, and Nobility Equipment, all of which can be upgraded through the Nobility system.

There are nine different Nobility classes, starting at Novice and climbing the social ladder all the way up to Emperor, passing through Page, Squire, Knight, Baron, Count, Marquess, and Duke along the way. Each class can be enhanced up to ten times, with each upgrade increasing your Nobility properties. After hitting ten you graduate to the next class. 

Equipment, Rewards, and More

Progressing through Nobility classes also levels up your Nobility skills, which you can use against Nobility bosses in Nobility dungeons. 

Naturally, there are nine of these dungeons – one for each class – and each of them has its own unique boss. You can take these bosses on alone or with a party. There's a daily limit on boss defeats, and once you exceed it you lose the ability to inflict DMG. Each boss respawns three times a day.

If you manage to deal more DMG than anyone else in a given day, you'll receive drop rewards for your efforts, while defeating boss monsters will net you bounty rewards. 

There's a host of Nobility equipment, too, including helmet, armor, gloves, boots, shield, and badge, all divided into grades.

And then there's that event. From the 25th of July till the 2nd of August you can claim a special wing costume , title, footprint, and accessory just for logging in. Plus, there will be additional rewards every day for nine days at 9pm.

As you can tell, there's a lot to get your teeth into in MU Origin 14.0. You can download the game for free right now on Google Play and the App Store.

1sland Guide – Collect Oysters and Find The Island First With These Hints, Tips and Tricks

1sland is an interesting take on the battle royale genre. Instead of trying to kill all the other players, here you're trying to find the only island in a massive sea. Find it first and not only can you reap the rewards, you can also personalise the chunk of land to really put your mark on it.

How To Collect Oysters

There are a number of ways to collect oysters, and some are easier than others. You'll get 1 oyster for sailing a set distance, for smashing a specific number of ice chunks, for collecting orbs and for catching different species of fish. You can keep track of how you're doing with each from the in-game menu.

The more oysters you've got, the more you can spend, which is super important for getting to the island first. You'll need to buy faster boats, various upgrades and extra flares to make sure you're the the first to sight land.

Complete Missions After You've Found The Island

When you spot a mission, try and remember where it is – if you've got spare bouys you can drop one, for example. Missions are great ways to work your way up the leaderboards and increase your XP, but you shouldn't prioritise them over finding the island.

Some races are going to be difficult to finish when you've only got the starting boat. That's because you'll have to smash through ice, and won't have the speed to do it. You can still collect the orbs though, so it's worth taking them on.

Watch Out For Whirlpools

You'll see whirlpools from time to time – they're round patches of different coloured water – and if you're not careful they're going to suck you in and halt your progress. You'll only lose a few metres, but you can end up confused about the direction you need to be heading in.

It's best to give whirlpools as wide a berth as you possibly can. It might mean you're missing out on other goodies, but it's not worth the danger of getting sucked under the ocean.

Buy The Torch

Travelling slows down to a crawl during the night because you can't see where you're going. That means that buying the torch should be on the top of your agenda. The light lets you move faster during the dark times, which is essential if you want to get to the island first.

Once you've got the torch, it's time to start making your ship faster. The upgrades you buy will apply to any boat that you unlock, so you'll be helping out your future boating self as well.

Biggest Hero Ever? Upcoming Fighter/Tank Barats Skills Guide (Mobile Legends: Bang Bang)

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang will be releasing the upcoming fighter/tank which will be the biggest hero in the land of dawn. Having skills that gives very high damage output and an overwhelming defense. Barats is one of the best heroes in MLBB that you should be using in clashing, because both of Barats first and second skill have Crowd Control.

Barats is already released in the advance server. Barats name before is actually Barts, and his pet from Rahal to Detona. Barats is a Dino Rider and at the same time Barats is a dessert king who can absorb energy and become bigger.

Detona or was known before as Rahal from his backstory is actually a dragon. Barats uses his tounge as a basic attack, slapping his enemies. Barats has a specialty of damage and crowd control, making him one of the heroes you don't wanna mess with in the late game. Barats is recommended in jungling, because of his tank abilities, he can easily go on farming.

This new hero barats was also featured by Choox Tv. Barats is also compared to the pokemon charmander, because of his flaming tail and physical appearance.

Skills Guide

Barats skills are actually very effective, Kaja and Franco would really be jealous of his second skill, not only because it only takes 8 seconds for cooldown at a max level but it can also push enemies in Barats direction, Making Barats an ideal damage dealer and a perfect hero for sets as long as he doesn't mess around with the combo of guineverre's second's skill and ulti combo.

Barat's passive skill is called I am Big. Each time Detona deals damage with his skills, he absorb energy and enhances himself, gaining 1 stack of robust. The more stacks Detona has, the bigger he becomes, but each stack only takes 10 seconds. Barat's passive is very effective, so use his passive wisely. Each time Detona deals damage to a target, he inflicts 1 stack of Feast to the target. When the feast reaches 4 stacks, Detona will gnaw the target upon the next Basic Attack, dealing physical damage according to his Max HP and restoring HP, making him one of the most effective heroes in clashing, enemies would surely be aware about his massive size. When robust exceeds 10 stacks, Detona's basic attack will now trample the target, where each basic attack inflicts 2 stacks Feast on the target. Whenever you encounter this hero, be aware that you should never get hit more than 3 of his basic attacks, marksman and mages will be very effective against this hero.

Barat's first skill is So-Called Teamwork an AoE. Detona Spits contaminated oil then Barats drops firecrackers in a fan shaped area infront of Barats. The contaminated oil deals 75/100/125/150/175/200 +8% Total HP. Slowing the enemies within the area by 15% for 1 second. The slow effect is more than enough for a remarkable combo of Barat's, which will be explained below.

The second skill is Crowd Control that is called Missiles Expert. Barats launches missiles to the designated area. Upon landing, a blast of flame spout out from the rear of the missile, dealing 300/330/360/390/420/450 +125% total physical attack, the pushing enemies towards his direction. This skill can really counter the enormous heroes like pharsa and odette. This crowd control should really be useful and if used properly, it will be very easy to be used for early game.

The ultimate skill is Detona roars skyward and generates a forcefield around himself for 5 seconds. Enemies that come in contact with the edge of the forcefield will be 300/500/700 +100% Total Physical Attack and will be stun for 1 second, while enemies within the forcefield takes 60 + 20% physical attack + 0.7 total hp continously every 1 second and slowing them by 20%. The forcefield looks like a huge circle on fire. Barats and Tigreal's ulti will have a very good combo.

The perfect hero for combo with Barats would be Tigreal and Odette. While Tigreal uses Ulti and catches atleast 2 heroes, Barats should also use Ulti along with Odette's Ulti, this way heroes that don't use purify should be killed easily.

A Quick Guide to Up Coming Fighter: Khaleed (Mobile Legends: Bang Bang)

Khaleed is the new hero of Mobile Legends Bang Bang, it was recently featured by Chooxtv in his latest videos. He is a desert scimitar and has a role as fighter. His abilities are damage and regeneration, he is not recommended to be played in mid lane but rather than to roam in side lanes. He can go to middle lane if he needs to back up his team mates in clashing.

Table of Contents

  1. Khaleed Hero
  2. Skills
    1. Sand Walk
    2. Desert Tornado
    3. Quicksand Guard
    4. Raging Storm

Khaleed Hero

Khaleed is difficult to be use because his attacks are very predictable by the enemy, except in clashing. Although it is very predictable , once you caught up the dealt damage is high. It is recommended that you are fast learner with fast hands in using Khaleed since he is a complicated character to be use especially in his skill sets. You need to be wise using his skills in every situation , especially in clashing.

Khaleed can be combined to any hero depending how the players handle other heroes during battle. But the best heroes to unleash a good combo of Khaleed are Tigreal, Sun, Johnson, Benedetta , Faramis , Jawhead and Sillvana. Depending how the players handle Khaleed and the said heroes to have a high win rate.

Based from Chooxtv video about Khaleed, any item to be use will do as long as it is applicable to its situation. Like wise it will reduce your winning rate if you use the same item in every game. It is better to have revitalize in his equipped battle spell in order to reuse his second skill: quicksand guard which I going to explain below.


Sand Walk

Khaleed's passive called Sand Walk it has the ability to fly and roam around the side lanes. It will allow to increase the speed of Khaleed while dashing his enemies in his range which slows them and dealt damage in his basic attacks. His passive skill will temporary lost when his steady or at rest.

Desert Tornado

His first skill is called Desert Tornado which create a leap or jump while attacking his enemy in its direction. Having a dealt damage to its enemies. Reusable depending how timing it is, at beginning it has long cool down, later in its middle game which it will reduce and very useful at kill spree.

Quicksand Guard

His second skill is called Quicksand guard it restores his health and creates a buff. You can use his second skill after using the first skill while clashing or pushing depending the level of his second skill. At the beginning the health restore is around 70 hp during middle game it will go higher at five seconds in every use. However once you moved Khaleed while activating his second skill will loss his ability to heal.

Raging Storm

His ultimate skill is called Raging Storm which create a sand storm and c stuns his enemies at 1 second. It is best to be used during clashing not one one situations . When using his ultimate make sure to hit at least two enemies or else it will be useless and can affect the game play set by your teammates. Be wise in using his ultimate to create a good combo during clashing.

The New Chasing Assassin Benedetta Guide (Mobile Legends: Bang Bang)

After the release of the black dragon Yu Zhong, many players gets excited of using a dragon in the land of dawn. A new hero is coming to Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, an assassin, Benedetta, she is a shadow ranger. Benedetta's iconic quote is when the body suffers, the spirit blooms.

Is this hero OP (Overpowered)? The answer would be yes, she is very OP, she can chase enemies easily and she can escape from them while guarding herself. Benedetta's basic attack has different looks from the original basic attack, instead it gives an image of two swords crossing each other just like her role, an assassin.

Benedetta's specialty is chase/burst, which means, she can easily chase heroes or escape intentionally. Benedetta should go on farming, the stronger you get in the early the better. Another way of using this hero properly is by always using her basic attack, then holding it, allowing her to activate her passive skill. The hero is all about dashing, she is like a girl version of Lancelot.

Benedetta and Hayabusa would have an OP combo, I would not recommend having 2 assassins in a game unless one of them adjusts and take the enemies blue buff. Benedetta's Ultimate Skill makes her invisible while dashing and slowing them down, then here is where Hayabusa's scene appear, while benedetta use her ulti, hayabusa should also use his ulti, having an unstoppable duo. Another hero that can do a harsh combo with Benedetta is the tank Khufra, the set would be, Khufra's ulti then Benedetta's Ulti, if the tank can properly set it would give higher chances of winning. I would highly recommend not to use Benedetta without a hero that can stun or immobilize because heroes can easily escape her ulti. Benedetta has a sword on her right side, it can only be filled by holding the basic attack. But overall this combo there is one team that would be unstoppable in clashing (if it hits the right combo) The team would be, Benedetta, Tigreal, Zhask, Silvanna and Wanwan. After Tigreal uses the combo of flicker and Ulti, Zhask and Silvanna should do the same, making the enemies stuck inside, then Wanwan should use her first skill, then wait for few hits to activate her ulti, then Benedetta would use her ulti. If this combo is perfectly timed, then it would be one of the best combos on MLBB. The player should always use basic attack to charge the passive.

Skills Guide

Benedetta's passive skill is called Elapsed Daytime it is a blink and damage way of passive. When holding down the Basic Attack button, Benedetta enters the swordout state, at this state, she gathers sword intent, and if Benedetta releases her basic intent after swordout state, she is already fully charged. The way to release her fully charged swordout state is by holding down the basic attack button. She can also gain sword intent when dealing damage by basic attack and casting skills. The skills damage is considered as skill damage. The HP restoration will be reduced to 20% if she hits minions and creeps. Use her passive skill in clashing or while escaping, her passive is what you would like about her, because she is already fast yet still goes faster.

Her First Skill is both burst and blink, this skill let's Benedetta withdraw swiftly and leaves a shadow in the front. After a short delay, her shadow slashes forward in a fan-shaped area, dealing 300/340/380/420/460/500 and an additional 40% physical attack. This skill is best for offense, because it gives huge amount of damage and a dash, but always keep an eye on the map and avoid CC heroes.

Benedetta's second skill is also a very important skill, it not only helps players on defense but also has offensive structures. Benedetta raises her weapon to defend in this skill, it is called an eye for an eye, the title itself is already very good and is obviously for defense. This skill is very helpful for taking buffs and for clashes.

Alecto: Final Blow is an ulti that is also both defense and for offense. It is very helpful, since you can be invisible, it is very helpful for surprise attacks and for escaping.

Tencent Games Releases The Everlasting Regret on iOS & Android

An unforgettable interactive poetic and puzzle-solving experience awaits

Tencent's Lightspeed & Quantum Studios, has released poetic puzzle game The Everlasting Regret on iOS and Android in more than 50 countries and regions with language support for English and Chinese. The game is an adapted version of the Chinese narrative poem Song of Everlasting Regret and features tailor-made levels told across four chapters designed to present this tragic love story in a beautiful artistic style reminiscent of the Tang Dynasty.

Song of Everlasting Regret is a poem written by the Chinese poet Bai Juyi. It is inspired by the love story of an emperor of the Tang Dynasty who falls in love with a beautiful young girl. Emperor Xuanzong becomes so entranced by Lady Yang that he forgets all of his responsibilities while they both enjoy every minute of their love. Suddenly, war breaks out and the emperor must lead his troops into battle but brings the girl for fear of leaving her alone. His men see that he is distracted and demand Lady Yang be killed to focus his attention on the battle. Xuanzong has no choice but to allow it. After her death, Xuanzong regrets his decision and reflects on all the happy moments they had together.

Xuanzong misses her and even asks priest to contact her soul. This is a sad love story but people are touched by the love, sacrifice, death, and the hope that couple will be reunited one day. The poem ends with the lines "The boundless sky and endless earth may pass away, but this vow unfulfilled will be regretted for aye."

The Everlasting Regret plays like an interactive poem as players need to solve puzzles in order to move on to the next page. Three paint elements, Vivify, Bond, and Destroy, will help players interact with each story segment to complete its narrative, but they can also be used to discover secret scenarios featuring new illustrations. The whole love story of Xuanzong and his beloved concubine Lady Yang is reproduced after finishing four chapters. In addition to its main story, The Everlasting Regret boasts an encyclopedia with a dictionary, commentary, achievements, and artifacts.

The game chooses a Chinese ink-brush painting art style to tell its love story. This special drawing technic and symbol of oriental esthetics is created by using a brush dipped into ground ink, then submerged in water before being painted onto a canvas of paper or silk. A similar impressive visual presentation can also be found in Zhang Yimou's film Shadow.

The game's soundtrack also plays a key role in telling this tragic love story and is characteristic of the Tang Dynasty in its use of Chinese traditional instruments.

The Everlasting Regret is now available on iOS and Android devices in more than 50 countries and regions at the following locations:
