Marvel Run Jump Smash! Cheats And Tips
Show Loki who's boss with our essential guide to the new Marvel game.
Marvel Run Jump Smash! is a endless running action game that will please fans of the comic books, as they get to play as Hulk, Iron Man and other characters, collecting coins and unlocking new abilities along the way. The game's freemium model could be questioned, but overall it's a pretty decent offering for those looking for a way to pass the time - while waiting for the next Marvel movie, anyway.
Here are some tips that will help you conquer Loki's evil with ease.
How do I use superhero characters in Marvel Run Jump Smash?
The key is to collect tokens. These usually appear at the start of each level, and allow you to play as chosen character for a few seconds. Each one has offensive capabilities, like Iron Man's lasers, Black Widow's guns and Thor's Mjolnir hammer, and can also perform special jump techniques. Hulk, for instance, can perform a smash move on guarded enemies, while Captain America can double jump and reach coins higher in the air.
When you see these tokens, grab them without hesitation!
How do I defeat enemies in Marvel Run Jump Smash?
There are three types of foes you'll face off against - general enemies, larger enemies and shielded enemies.
When it comes to general enemies, you can shoot them with any of your given characters, and they usually go down with one hit.
Large enemies require a little more firepower to bring down, but a couple of shots should do the trick.
Finally, shielded enemies can't be hit by guns, so try jumping on their heads instead. Although you won't earn as many coins as you would from shooting regular enemies, you'll still get past them and continue your run.
How do I unlock new characters in Marvel Run Jump Smash?
You'll have to purchase them using in-game currency. Thor will set you back 80,000 gold or 40 gems - depending what you collect more of first. Other characters include Spider-Man (100,000 gold or 50 gems), Captain Marvel (65,000 gold or 35 gems), and Hawkeye (75,000 gold or 40 gems). Other characters will be added to the game later on.
You can also unlock a third playable character in the game, Agent Coulson, but you'll have to play for a while in order to gain access to him.
What enhancements are available in Marvel Run Jump Smash?
Along with the special abilities for each character - which you can upgrade in low or high capacity with 100 gold or 1 gem), you can also purchase various enhancements to improve your run. They are as follows:
IOS-8 Strength - this protects you from one obstacle or minion. The first level goes for 300 gold, and will last 15 seconds.
Coin Value - this boosts your coin value a certain percentage. To get started with an increase of one percent - yes, one percent - you'll need to spend 300 gold.
Power-Up Duration - this increases the duration of invincibility and Magnet power-ups. It'll cost you 600 coins to start off, doubling your time from .3 seconds to .6. That does make a difference in game though, believe it or not.
Wasp's Wings - this gives you a 390 meter head start on your run, and costs 400 gold. One-time use.
Captain's Shield - this prevents defeat from collision with an obstacle a single time, and costs 200 gold. One-time use.
Doctor Strange's Charm - use this to fill your special attack bar up 50 percent. It's a one-time use for 100 gold.
Protection of Mjolnir - this keeps your special attack bar full as you change back to your SHIELD character. It's a one-time use for 100 gold.
Super Hero's Spirit - this extends your run with your current super hero for 20 seconds, even after you are defeated. It's a one-time use for 300 gold.
Do I have to pay for anything in Marvel Run Jump Smash?
If you want to get the better heroes and characters in the game - and don't feel like playing for hours on end to unlock them all - you can put down cash to buy gems in the game, which you can translate into gold. You can also take advantage of promo offers to earn gold awards, although these require some actions on your account, like signing up for surveys.
You can still play the game without purchasing anything, but your abilities with the Avengers will be somewhat limited, and you won't have access to all the characters.
