Escape From Doom Cheats And Tips
Struggling to run for your life? Our Escape From Doom guide has all the answers.
Escape From Doom takes a fresh approach to the growing endless runner genre by not just assuming a first-person perspective, but also giving you some seriously offensive firepower to play with. You'll need those guns too if you're to fend off the mummies and escape with plenty of treasure.
If you need some help getting started, we've got some tips that will help you get further on your next run. Good luck!
What weapons should I use in Escape From Doom?
Your best bet when it comes to picking a weapons loadout is to take the machine gun and the shotgun. The machine gun holds plenty of ammunition (ideal for mowing down large groups of mummies), while the shotgun will easily clear the path right ahead of you with one clean shot. If you want your shots to pack more power, always choose the shotgun. Alternatively, you might want to check out the crossbow - it's both effective and fast-loading.
Which are the best perks in Escape From Doom?
As far as perks go, there are three we can easily recommend. The first is the Pair of Boots. With these equipped, you'll run even faster, although though you'll need to maneuver much more quickly around groups of mummies to avoid getting hit.
The second are the Goggles, which make things much easier to see through sandstorms - and considering the first one pops up a few seconds into the first level, you'll need them.
Finally, there's the holster, which lets you carry more than one weapon at a time. As the mummies begin to fill up the screen more and more, this upgrade fast becomes essential
Go with these weapons and perks, and you really can't go wrong.
How can I unlock weapons and perks in Escape From Doom?
The game uses an emerald currency system. You collect these emeralds by completing specific goals within in the game - kill certain number of mummies, or collect X number of treasure chest keys - and by running over urns that are scattered throughout each stage. It takes time to build up a stockpile at first, and so impatient players may want to invest a few dollars. With a little patience, you'll find your wealth builds up fairly enough so you can unlock items with ease.
You'll also need to level up to unlock new weapons and upgrade, but the more you play, the higher your experience gains become. Just keep at it.
How do I survive for longer in Escape From Doom?
First of all, evasion is the best way to get around the mummies. If you run around them well beyond their range, you won't get hit - it's as simple as that. If push comes to shove, you might need to take a hit every once in a while in order to avoid a larger group. When this happens, just head for one of the small, emerging mummies and you'll take minimal damage.
Secondly, while you do have enough firepower to help get some of the mummies out of your way, ammo is best saved for when you really need it. Use evasion tactics at first to get around enemies, and then fire only when you absolutely have to. The more ammunition you conserve, the better you'll do in the long run.
Eventually, you will get caught - that's how free runners work - but at least with this advice, you'll last a little longer.
How can I get more emeralds in Escape From Doom?
You can earn emeralds during your runs, or just buy them if you're really impatient. If you prefer a middle-of-the-road path, the game does provide the option of earning free emeralds by taking part in promotional offers, such as watching videos or joining certain groups - a nice way to get hold of some free currency.
