Rise Of The Blobs Cheats And Tips
Helpful hints for nailing your next high score.
Rise of the Blobs is out now on the App Store and offers a refreshing twist on the falling block genre. We reviewed the game earlier today - now here are all of our top hints and tips for climbing the leaderboards.
How do I upgrade a power-up in Rise of the Blobs?
If you want to add a little bit of oomph to your power-ups, you'll need to spend some of the coins you've earned in the game - or bought from the in-app purchase store. Hit the shopping trolley icon, then select the icon with the arrow pointing upwards. Higher upgrade levels cost more coins, so it's worth raising the level of each power-up side-by-side.
How do I increase my rank in Rise of the Blobs?
Increasing your rank in Rise of the Blobs opens up new themed stages for you to play on. If you want to increase your rank, keep playing and chasing a higher score, as each match will reward you with experience which fills up the rank meter.
How do I get a high score in Rise of the Blobs' Normal mode?
Anything goes in Normal mode, by which we mean that all you have to worry about is clearing as many blobs as you can, as quickly as possible. It goes without saying that you need to make sure the highest color blob doesn't pass the top of the cylinder,
How do I get a high score in Rise of the Blobs' Timed mode?
This mode's much trickier than Normal, as you're playing against a ticking clock - and once that timer runs down it's game over. To top up your time, you're going to need to clear out those blocks that have a clock icon inside them. This gives you more time to keep playing, so you should always prioritize clearing these out when you see them.
How do I get a high score in Rise of the Blobs' Skull mode?
This is possibly the trickiest mode in the whole game, because if a single Skull detonates then it's game over. While keeping the stack as low as possible, you need to keep your eyes out for any timers that appear on the cylinder. These represent explosive Skulls, so you must prioritize clearing a path to them as quickly as possible, then make a match-up to remove them from the screen.
How do I get a high score in Rise of the Blobs' Match mode?
This one's a little confusing at first but it's not too complicated. At the top-right of the screen, you'll see an icon containing a series of blob colors. You must make a match-up in the order that the colors appear in each of these sets before the next one opens up. A good tip here is to set up matches in advance, then only pop the fruit when needed for the color sequence.
How do the Perks work in Rise of the Blobs?
If you want to give yourself more of a fighting chance in the game, there are a number of Perks you can purchase with coins. Here's the low-down on what each one does, but don't forget you can upgrade individual Perks too:
These rainbow fruits will occasionally spawn on the game board, and are capable of absorbing fruits of any colors. Handy if you want to keep your game going longer.
These are great for destroying a large number of nearby blobs, making the game area easier to work with.
If you're struggling to get much of a high score in the Timed mode, you might want to think about spending some coins on this Perk. Activate this and you'll get a little more time to play with.
Activating this Perk adds a bonus to your score, based on a percentage of your total score.
How do I unlock the Castle Guard and Wind-up Knight Malwear in Rise of the Blobs?
Both of these are part of the Passholder Exclusive package, and can only be unlocked by purchasing the pass from the in-app purchase store.
