Card Wars: Adventure Time Cheats And Tips
Put your money where your Floop is.
If you're a fan of the animated series Adventure Time, which airs on Cartoon Network regularly, you might remember an episode called Card Wars, where Jake and Finn play an elaborate yet enjoyable battle game. D3 Publisher brought this experience to iPhone and iPad, allowing players to recreate its zaniness on their devices of choice.
That said, here are some tips that will help you master Card Wars: Adventure Time. Bring on the Floops!
How do I play Card Wars: Adventure Time?
You begin by laying out terrain that covers your land and then putting down characters that will defend it. It's then your job to battle against your opponent's foes while trying to take over their land, using turn-based combat.
To defend and attack enemies, you'll use a spinner, landing in just the right spot to successfully block or initiate an attack. Landing in a special highlighted zone lets you perform a counter or extra damage, though if you enter the "miss" section, your character won't do anything.
Once a player manages to defeat a character, it leaves an open lane to strike the opponent directly. Once they run out of energy, the round is won.
How do you select creatures for your deck in Card Wars: Adventure Time?
Selecting creatures depends on a few factors, mainly strength, magic power and type of landscape you can put it on. Landscape is important, mainly because you won't be able to put down a creature if they don't fit into said landscape, so be sure to select those that best fit your areas.
As for magic power and strength, these will be handy when battling opponents, though it still comes down to the timing of when you press the button in the spinning meter.
You can modify and change decks in the Edit Decks option, moving around creatures you don't use to make room for new ones.
How do you use buildings in Card Wars: Adventure Time?
Buildings serve as boosters for your creatures in their respective landscapes, but you'll need to add them to your deck first. You'll be able to earn them by unlocking treasure chests from crucial hits on enemies in the battlefield. Open up the chests separately, then add the cards to your deck.
Once added, you can move buildings onto any part of the landscape you desire when it's your turn. Upon doing so, any creatures in the row will be powered up, depending on the building's perks.
How do Floop abilities work in Card Wars: Adventure Time?
Floop, a popular term from the show, enables special skills that can be activated for magic points for each character. If you've got a particularly powerful one, this is useful for wiping out an opponent in one blow. Just hit the Floop button below the character to activate it and give them a turbo-charge for the next turn. Be sure to save magic points for the characters that matter, though. Otherwise, you could run short and leave them hanging when a powerful attack comes their way.
What kind of cars should I invest in with Card Wars: Adventure Time?
There are various characters with special abilities available in the game, but you want to keep an eye on those with good attack strength and magic powers. You can shop around for new ones and add them to your deck at any time.
It's important, however, to keep weaker ones in play, just in case you need a sacrificial card to keep a lane closed so you don't take damage from your opponent. Try to keep at least two or three in your deck, so you can always fill spots when necessary, with a battle line intact.
In addition, make sure you have plenty of landscapes in tow, at least two cornfields if possible. The more damage a landscape takes, the more likely you are to take damage yourself - make sure you refresh it as much as possible along with your characters. It'll pay off in the long run.
How do I use gems in Card Wars: Adventure Time?
Even though you start with a small amount - you can always buy more - gems play a big part in Card Wars. You'll use these to open chests to earn new cards, as well as expand how many cards you can have in a deck. The Algebraic Chest is your best bet, though dabbling in the Cool Chest is a good idea at times. You never know what great cards will come your way unless you try it out.
You also have the option to use gems to refill your heart meter when it runs on empty. Don't bother, though - it refills over time and you can get back into the game.
How does crafting work in Card Wars: Adventure Time?
As you unlock recipes for card crafting throughout each battle, you can take cards in your deck and begin crafting for more powerful cards. This comes from merging weaker cards together to form beefier cards. Give it a try once the ability unlocks, and see how much your deck flourishes as a result.
Do I need to pay for anything in Card Wars: Adventure Time?
You can buy gems for additional heart refills or other in-game goodies, ranging from one gem for $0.99 to 85 gems for $49.99. Unless you're a hardcore Adventure Time fan, you should be fine playing the game without opening your wallet.
