Riddick: The Merc Files Cheats And Tips
With Riddick performing well in theaters, Gaming Corps released an iOS title based on the anti-hero, letting you rip apart enemies and complete missions in The Merc Files for higher-end iOS devices.
We think the game is better than most movie-licensed crud, but it definitely has issues. That said, you may need a little help getting started. Put on your night vision goggles and read on.
-There are three different game types in Riddick.
In Escape, the goal is to simply reach the exit in one piece, regardless of whether you kill guards or not. On your first run through, try to keep an eye on guard routes and see where they're walking. Once you find an opening, sneak past or take them out. It's your call, just as long as you reach the exit.
Next up is Fetch, and this is a trickier stage where you're required to get an item on the other end of the board, then return to your starting point. It's best to kill the guards on the way to the item, as you'll have to drop it and contend with them on the way back. At the very least, it stays where you found it, so you can go back, pick it up and head to the exit.
Finally, there's Takedown, which is the trickiest stage type available. Your job here is to eliminate a target on the other side of the map while contending with or avoiding other guards. The main goal is highlighted, but it helps to take out the other guards first, as you might get their attention later.
-When it comes to playing each of these stages, time doesn't play too much of a factor. Not happy with the way you completed a mission? Try it again for a better bounty score. There's no penalty for going back.
-The shadows are your friend. By standing in the shadows, Riddick stays out of the guards' sight. You'll see when he's completely cloaked, as he lights up in a yellow silhouette. Find a good spot where you can take out a guard quickly, then drag his body to the same shadowed area. If a guard spots his ally's body, he'll become trigger happy, which makes your job more difficult.
-Should you get lost or not know where the objective is, find a safe spot and pinch anywhere on the screen. A map will appear highlighting where the exit, fetch item or takedown target is located. Simply let go to resume play.
-Once you kill a guard, you have the option of picking up a machine gun. This is only recommended when you have one or two guards left on the map. Noise, whether from running or shooting, will get their attention. If you have two or more to deal with, chances are you'll die quickly and have to restart the stage. Remember, stay silent and rely on up-close kills.
