Rise & Destroy Pro Tips
Rise & Destroy has been released worldwide, and we could not be more excited for everyone to play! Read on for some tips to get you started smashing with the best of them:
Look over the city before you begin your destruction
Before you press the big green play button to begin each city, you can drag the screen around to get a first glimpse at the challenge you are facing. This is very helpful for planning out a route of attack, especially when you’re doing everything you can to keep your destruction combo throughout the entire city.
Complete Monster Cup Challenges
Once you’ve mastered a 3 star rating for a city, you will unlock the “Monster Cup Challenge.” This is an opportunity to play the same level again to gain even more coins while you prove your domination over that level. These challenges can range from “Don’t drop your combo”, to “Don’t collect health buildings”, to “Only use Frankie” and everything in between!
Read the objective for each city
At the top right hand corner of your screen, you will find your goal for each city before you begin. While some of them tell you to “Destroy Everything,” others don’t require each building to be demolished. If you are racing against the clock or the laser wall, the best plan of attack may be to leave some structures standing and focus on the bigger clusters of buildings.
Those humans sure can be annoying! While you’re busy conquering buildings, humans and their weapons will sneak up on you and diminish your health, forcing you to take focus away from your main task to extinguish them. Luckily, Creeplings are here to help take the humans down. Each color of Creepling focuses on a specific type of human effort—use the right Creepling at the right time for the most help. Once you unlock the ability to use Creepling assistance, don’t forget to replenish your supply before you begin each level!
Collect Health Buildings
Have you seen those hamburger-looking buildings scattered throughout the different cities? They can be pretty helpful when your health is running low! Demolish those buildings to replenish your health when running dangerously low. If your health is already full, these special buildings won’t help you. Be mindful of not destroying these buildings if your Monster Cup Challenge requires no health buildings. If your health is already full, it’s sometimes beneficial to save these buildings for later in the level just in case you need them.
Check out how different buildings fall
Tapping on a building will show you how that specific one will fall when you destroy it. Some structures will take out everything around it, causing a domino effect and letting you continue on while they destroy themselves. Others will only fall in the direction you push them, and some will not take any others down with them. Use this to your benefit to be able to continue rampaging while buildings fall—it can help you hold onto your combo and earn the highest score possible!
Use your Monster’s powers
Each monster has his or her own special elemental power that can help take out whole clusters of buildings with a single blow. Whether it’s Fire, Volt, or Ice, each power can be used to destroy multiple configurations at a time. Try out each power on a cluster of buildings, and let us know which one is your favorite!
