Colossatron: Massive World Threat Cheats And Tips
Although its unique gameplay settings and slightly high difficulty may not be for everyone, dedicated fans of tower defense games and monster action will love Halfbrick's Colossatron: Massive World Threat - especially once they build an unbeatable, chaotic beast.
Here are some tips to help get you started in the game.
How do PowerCores work in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
PowerCores are these glowing containers that float around randomly on the stage. When you see them, tap to grab and then drag these items to the Colossatron.
Now, with PowerCores, there's some strategy here. Basic ones, like red, yellow and blue, provide additional firepower to decimate enemies with. However, combining them gives you even more powerful allies to work with.
How do I combine PowerCores together in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
That's easy. Try to keep basic color blending in mind when it comes to enhancing your PowerCores.
For example, if you get three of the same colored PowerCores connected in a row, you can form a super-powered weapon, such as a plasma cannon or a heavy laser gun. If you blend together primary colored PowerCores - like red and blue, for instance - you get a completely different PowerCore - in this case, a purple repair drone.
Try different PowerCores, then mix and match which ones are available to see what kind of firepower they bring to the table. The more powerful the PowerCore, the longer they'll last on the battlefield.
How do I unlock additional PowerCores in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
You'll be able to collect Prims over the course of each stage, which you can then turn around to unlock particular PowerCores in the Armory section of the game. You'll need about 15 in order to "unlock them forever," as the menu reads, so you may need to dabble in your wallet to unlock them if you're impatient. You can either buy 20 for $1.99, or go for a big package of 200 for $14.99. It's completely optional, though, and you can always replay a stage to find more Prisms.
Once you've unlocked them, they'll be floating around randomly on the stage for you to add right away.
What extra PowerCores are available in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
There are six in all, listed below.
Cluster Bombs - these drop explosive bombs on enemies within the close range.
Flame Thrower - as expected, these shoot flames at enemies close enough to get within their firing range
Laser Beam - fires a continuous laser beam on an enemy, either near or far
Plasma Cannon - shoots a stream of bullets at enemies within the immediate area
Ice Cannon - shoots ice beams that can bounce off enemies for multiple hits
Repair Drones - repairs any PowerCores that are about to be destroyed off Colossatron
What happens if a PowerCore is about to blow up in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
You'll see that a PowerCore is about to explode by a huge exclamation point marker over it. Once that happens, use your finger to drag the PowerCore off the beast, and try to target a group of enemies with it. It'll explode and take them out with a huge blast. Note: it doesn't take out all enemies, as tougher ones will shrug off the damage and continue attacking Colossatron.
What gadgets are available for Colossatron to use in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
There are various levels of gadgets that can be unlocked in Colossatron, and they each provide additional abilities for the creature to use in each stage.
First up are the Command ones, in which Colossatron can either use a Snake Strike to charge at enemies or concentrate all its firepower on a single target, such as a boss. You can only use one of these at a time, so choose wisely.
Other abilities open up as you proceed in the game, including Regeneration and additional firepower. Decide what works best for your attack run, and select what you want to use. You can change gadgets if something doesn't work for you, though you'll need to pay a few Prisms to do so.
What happens if Colossatron dies in the middle of a stage in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
If Colossatron's parts are taken out, its head will perform a massive explosion, which will take out all enemies in the area and add to your cash total. If you don't wish to play the stage again, you can spend two Prisms and rebuild Colossatron the way he began, with all his PowerCores intact. This will complete the stage automatically, so use it only when a challenge is too tough to overcome. Otherwise, just try the stage again.
How do I conquer stages in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
There are four stages per country to take over in the game. Three are smaller cities where you'll need to destroy certain objectives, like bombers, tanks and bases. The final is the capital, in which you'll need to do a certain amount of damage before completely leveling the city.
The capital stages are the most challenging, as the general will throw everything at you in terms of resources. Pack Colossatron with the most firepower you can in these stages - you'll need it.
What does cash buy in Colossatron: Massive World Threat?
As Colossatron damages each of the surrounding areas, it'll clean up on cash. You can turn this around to repair all of your current PowerCores (for $5,000,000), buy an additional PowerCore from what's available ($1,000,000), Power-Up all your current PowerCores (for $15,000,000) or reconfigure all of Colossatron's current PowerCores ($2,500,000).
Reconfiguring is kind of a waste of money unless you're looking to move your Repair Drones around to cover both front and rear units. Concentrate on powering up PowerCores and keeping them repaired.
