Rakoo's Adventure Cheats and Tips
How to unlock in-game goodies, and beat those boss battles.
Rakoo's Adventure is the latest in a long line of endless runners for the iPhone and iPad, but it's a pleasurable one thanks to its charming presentation and simple controls. The delicious collection of power-ups and unlockable goodies also helps to round things out.
To help you get the most out of the game, we've got a few tips to help get you get up to speed.
What power-ups are the most useful in Rakoo's Adventure?
When it comes to power-ups, the three main ones to watch out for are the Magnet, the Chilli Pepper and the Bear.
The Magnet causes flowers to be drawn towards Rakoo if he's running near them. This is especially helpful if you've got enemies running around near them, or if he just isn't able to reach the row they've been scattered on. You can also use this power-up to collect combo-lined flowers, which add to your collection.
The Chilli Pepper sends Rakoo running at a ridiculously high speed, crushing all obstacles and enemies in his path. It's fun to watch - how often do you see a raccoon breathing fire? - but there's also a flip-side to this particular coin. He run so fast that you might miss some flowers along the way. It's best to revisit the stage later if you can, and go at normal speed through the rest of it so you can pick all the flowers up.
Finally, there's the Bear, and he's easily one of our favorite power-ups in the game. Rakoo rides on his back and lures him with food, which sends him on an unstoppable rampage through the rest of the stage. He's helpful at taking down groups of enemies, and that also keeps his momentum going as well. Run over as many enemies as you can while riding him, but don't forget to collect flowers along the way.
Do you have to pay for anything in Rakoo's Adventure?
Not really, no. The game does provide the option to pay additional money for flowers, but you'll collect enough in the game that you don't really need to put down real cash. There's also an option to buy additional lives, but again you can use flowers.
In addition, there are several promotional offers available that will add greatly to your flower stockpile. Be sure to check them out for a few handy freebies.
How do I survive boss battles in Rakoo's Adventure?
You won't really need to take any offensive action when it comes to boss fights. Your main goal is to simply keep running and avoid any obstacles that crop up, which in turn will harm the bosses until they're done for. These stages can move pretty quickly, so don't be too bummed if you have to start over again.
What can I unlock in Rakoo's Adventure?
There's a variety of different outfits and hats that you can unlock for Rakoo, ranging from Roman helmets to cowboy hats to princess outfits. You can buy most of them with in-game flowers, though some require your character to be at a certain level to unlock. Just keep running through stages in the game and you'll eventually get there.
In addition, you can also unlock supplementary pets in the game, though, honestly, unless you're an animal lover, you're better off with the hats. They serve more of a comical effect, especially as you replay some of the stages. Ever see a raccoon in a Roman helmet run rampantly while in love? Here's your chance.
