Giant Boulder of Death is another outlandish entry in the world of infinite runner mobile games. The goal of this game is quite simple - crush, mash and destroy everything in your angry boulder's path!
Adult Swim knows what it takes to get mobile gamers addicted to its brand of super colorful games. This infinite runner may seem simple, but beneath its tough exterior is a deep destruction simulator. Use these top 10 tips/tricks/cheats to make sure you travel the longest distance possible with your boulder.
1. Upgrade Your Boulder To The Max
The boulder you start out with may be able to roll over little obstacles, but it will have a hard time putting down bigger houses and buildings. Your starting boulder won't have much luck knocking down spike strips and other annoying obstacles, either. Upgrade your boulder as much as possible by throwing some coins into its progress, then watch your boulder become even more of a powerful force.
2. Smash Houses By Taking Down Trees
It may be tough to take down houses without the mighty power of the Invinciboulder. If you're looking to take down some cribs with another plan, then knock down any tress that are close to the houses. Those trees will go flying and probably knock down those houses or barns for you. Problem solved!
3. Get Some Free Coins Without Taking on Those Offers
When you head into the game's menus, go ahead and like the game through those popular social media channels we all know and love. You'll get a couple of free coins for your efforts. A bunch of other offers will pop up next to those social media offers, too. Tap on those offers, then head right back into the game. There's no need to actually take advantage of those offers, so just check 'em out for a hot second and get your free coins. Those offer tabs will still be present when you get back to the game, so just keep tapping on 'em to get your coins. They'll be gone eventually, so make the most of your coin gain.
4. Cop That Coin Sucker!
As soon as you get enough coins to do so, upgrade the Coin Sucker as much as you can. When you get that feature upgraded enough, you'll suck up way more coins/gems whenever you take a spin and land on the Coin Sucker.
5. Upgrade The Gem Frequency Power Up As Much as Possible
WriterParty.com noted that the gem frequency feature if your boulder loves taking longer treks:
If you are already going long distances, upgrade them Gem Frequency as high as you can, or simply spin and then spend two gems to maximize the Gem Frequency. Do this and there are chances you will be able to find three or more gems in a level, meaning that even when spending gems, you’re still earning gems.
6. Cheat Your Way to Extra Spin Boosts
News.MMOSite.com noted that a special mobile phone time trick could get you some more spin boosts:
After you unlock the spin boosts, you can only get them for free once every ten minutes; every other time, you have to pay two gems in order to spin. If you want to get them for free before the 10 minutes is up, set your phone ahead by however much time is left, and then go back to Giant Boulder of Death and you’ll be able to spin for free again.
7. Avoid Those Homing Mines and Ditches
News.MMOSite.com also posted up some tips on the best way to avoid homing mines and ditches:
Homing mines are a pain, but no matter the position, you can avoid them by jumping rapidly until they are gone. You can avoid almost any ditch as well, since your boulder can jump whether it’s actually on solid ground or not. Using the jump technique eliminates 2/3 of the worst obstacles in Giant Boulder of Death – only the spikes are still a danger, and even then, you can jump over them. Jump upgrades make it easier to do.
8. Score More Points By Knocking Down A Group of Objects
While you're bowling over everything in your path, you'll sometimes spot a large grouping of random objects (groups of people, small blue homes etc.). Whenever you see this instance rear its pretty head, take 'em down! You'll get a sweet collection of bonus points just for bowling these small clusters over.
9. Take Down Those Buildings
Modojo.com posted up a few tips on taking down those huge buildings:
Even if your boulder isn't strong enough, you should never pass up the opportunity to run into buildings. You'll earn several points in the process, and still get credit for certain challenges that lie ahead. On a side note, try to jump before running into a building. You'll score extra damage and more points.
10. Steer Clear of Holes!
Modojo.com also spoke about steering clear of those annoying holes:
Watch out for holes! Most of the objects that can end your boulder's run are noticeable from a distance, but large holes have a way of sneaking up on you, covered by a ridge or a building. When you get past 2,000 meters, stick to whatever high ground you can find. You'll get a better lay of the land, with enough timing to clear whatever gaps get in the way.
