Uncanny X-Men: Days Of Future Past Cheats And Tips
Time to unsheathe your claws, bub.
With X-Men: Days of Future Past doing impressive numbers at the box office, GlitchSoft opted to pay tribute to the original comic book that inspired it with Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past, now available for mobile. This game goes back to the good old days of hack-and-slash action, as Wolverine and other X-Men characters take on a powerful army, led by the devastating Sentinels.
Think this comic book adventure might be too much to handle? Don't worry, we've got the tips needed to make you feel as smart as Professor X.
How do I play Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past?
This is a hack-and-slash adventure, plain and simple. You'll play as one of five X-Men characters and beat up thugs that stand in your way, while collecting XP and health orbs to avoid succumbing to their attacks. Along the way, you'll be able to use said XP to unlock additional special techniques, which come in handy while facing boss characters, such as the Sentinels.
The game uses on-screen directional buttons to control your character's movements, along with jump and attack buttons, which feature swipe techniques for special attacks. The controls are actually pretty good, and respond most of the time to your commands. You'll have no problem getting through this game.
What characters are available in Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past?
So far, there are five. You've got adamantium-clawed Wolverine; the spry and powerful Shadowcat; the laser-shooting Cyclops; the devastating iron fighter Colossus; and the spiritually sound Scarlet Witch. Three more characters, Storm, Polaris and Magneto, are expected to appear in the weeks ahead.
You can switch between these characters at any time, but your best bets for the game are either Wolverine or Colossus. They're powerful enough to bring characters down quickly, and you can also use them to reach higher ledges as well as the smaller characters. They're your best bets overall, though you can certainly experiment with the others.
How do I power up characters in Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past?
Over the course of the game, you'll collect experience points one of three ways - by beating enemies, smashing orbs scattered throughout each stage and by walking into XP stations, usually located in higher points of a stage. Once you have enough, you'll be able to look over each character's abilities and unlock or enhance them by selecting to spend XP on them.
The best place to start is with Wolverine and Colossus, the two best characters in the game. Unlocking Wolverine's new slash techniques and Colossus' powerful ground pound attacks will go a long way into clearing the area of enemies. They also do massive damage against boss enemies, even if they appear to be unbeatable at first.
Fill up on your XP, then go to town on spending. If you're unsure what a certain attack does (or how to execute it), simply read the description. It provides all the details for you.
How do I unlock additional costumes and comic books in Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past?
These items are usually scattered over the course of each level, so we suggest exploring. Look for alternate areas in each stage, and go ahead and visit them to access the comic books. You'll also earn alternate costumes this way, including Wolverine's classic yellow-and-black duds. GlitchSoft has gone a long way to making sure these characters look just like their comic book counterparts.
Do I need to pay for anything in Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past?
No. The $2.99 price will cover the cost of admission (for now - no word on the three additional characters costing extra just yet), and it's a fairly good platformer, especially if you're a fan of the comic books or the film. Load up, bub.
