CuriousCaverns: Tip of the Week

CC_Help

How to move your Bat like a pro…

The Bat will follow your finger. Tap a short distance from the Bat, and drag to guide him.  When you encounter baddies, it is helpful to slow your Bat to a hover by tapping directly on him. Use the big button on the bottom left, (the big Green one shown above), to fire GuanoBombs at your enemies.

Use the AcroBAT button, (second from left on bottom), to toggle AcroBAT mode on/off. When in AcroBAT mode, the Bat will appear side facing, giving him a smaller profile to fit into tight spots.

In some levels you can pick up items by flying to them. Drop them by tapping on the Bat, just like to make him hover!

Try not to flick the Bat around by swiping at him! This will confuse him, and he will most likely meet an untimely death by crashing into a stalactite, or into the mouth of a hungry snake!

Happy Caving!

Spend your Coins and Gems at the General Store!

The coins and gems that you collect throughout the game can be used at the General Store to purchase items to enhance your Bat. Some items will change Talons appearance, while others will add special abilities.

For instance, the “Helm of Hurt”, has a nasty spike that inflicts damage to your enemies! Gems can be used to buy, “Amulet’s of Protection”, which act as a sort of armor against damage. To find out more info, tap the, “Buy Item” button under each product. You can also make In App Purchase’s, (using real money), for special skins that completely change the look of your Bat!

I hope you enjoy playing CuriousCaverns as much as I enjoyed making it! It’s a vast cave system, and new levels, and items will be added soon!
