ORC: Vengeance Cheats And Tips
Don't fall victim to the Dark Lord. Read our guide and restore peace to Argon.
After a lengthy wait, iPhone and iPad gamers finally received an entertaining dungeon crawler in the form of Chillingo and Big Cave Games' ORC: Vengeance, a title starring one angry hero, hordes of enemies to kill and plenty of loot. That said, you'll need quick fingers and tons of health potions to survive this monster-filled adventure, and on that note, this cheats and tips guide will help you channel your inner orc.
Explore Every Nook And Cranny
The camera in Orc: Vengeance prevents you from seeing an entire room at once. With this in mind, be sure to cover every inch in search of pots/barrels to break, treasure chests to kick open and piles of gold to grab. Considering the powerful waves of enemies that you'll face, you can't afford to leave stones unturned, so to speak.
Pick Up All Weapons And Shields
At first, you might think there's no reason to pick up a skeleton warrior's relatively weak sword, but you're wrong. Every piece of acquired loot, no matter how useless in combat, can be sold to the vendor for gold. To that end, it is in your best interest to amass a pile of junk, since he'll buy it for a decent price.
Choose The Best Weapon For Battle
Not all weapons are created equal. Axes have normal attack speeds and do above average damage, Hammers and Mallets have slower attack speeds but do extreme damage, while Blades have fast attack speeds but do below average damage.
Armor And Health Regenerate
Remember that armor regenerates quicker than Rok's health.
Unlock All Four Skill Slots
The game's hero, Rok, possesses a unique set of Skills, mapped to four slots; you'll need to unlock all of these slots with gold. After doing this, you can drag special maneuvers to the slots, and activate them in game using a specific gesture. These gestures include: Double Tap, Swipe, Circle and Zigzag. Simply make those shapes/actions on-screen, and Rok will perform the desired attack.
Note: Using Skills will deplete Rok's Vengeance meter.
As for available Skills, some include:
Ground Slam Attack
Shield Bash Attack
Use Skills To Defeat Large Groups Of Enemies
As you progress through ORC: Vengeance, enemies attack in greater numbers. To prevent being overwhelmed and to keep Rok's health topped off, wait for a bunch of baddies to come within range and destroy these creeps with a specific Skill. We recommend the Ground Slam Attack, which does a great job killing spiders.
Upgrade Rok's Stats Whenever Possible
Throughout the course of the journey, Rok levels up, and when that happens, head into the menu and spend the available points to boost the following stats: Attack, Defense, Greed and Vengeance.
Not All Crates Contain Loot
Some, in fact, contain nasty spiders. Thankfully, tapping these buggers instructs Rok to squash them flat.
Keep Potions Handy
This should go without saying, but you always want to make sure Rok has plenty of health, restore armor and restore vengeance potions handy. You can purchase a bunch from the vendor, then map them to those aforementioned Skill slots.
Upgrade Weapons And Items
If you're fond of a particular axe or sword (or item), you can upgrade it by pausing the game, selecting the Armory or Skills icon on the right side of the screen, then, when Rok's inventory appears on the left, highlight the desired piece of equipment and press the two yellow arrows at the bottom of the window. Keep in mind this costs gold.
Cheat By Purchasing Gold
Grinding isn't the only way to increase Rok's virtual bank account. You can buy gold the easy way.
Note: To buy gold while visiting the vendor, tap the weapons icon on the right side of the screen, then press the $ icon at the bottom of the pop-up window.
To buy gold in game, hit the pause button (top right), press the Armory or Skills icons, attempt to upgrade a weapon/item and press the Buy Gold button.
