Arcade Ball looks like a deceptively simple game from first glance, but its actually deeper than you think. If you want to get a little bit more knowledgeable about the deeper parts of this game, then use our tips/tricks/cheats guide.
By the time you finish reading our guide, you'll have a (digital) pocket of tickets that's ready for prize consumption!
1. Tilt Your Device to Land Your Ball Where You Want It to Go
There will be instances where you're shot won't go in as planned. The motion controls for this game come in handy during instances such as this. Gently tilt your smartphone/tablet in the direction you're trying to land the target in. You'll get a slight spin on your ball when you tilt your device, which could land you the shot you've been trying to land.
2. What Powerup's are There?
There's three powerup's in the game that could mean the difference between a great win or a disappointing loss: Check out all the powerup's below:
- Redo: Allows you to re-take your final shot during a slow-mo opportunity.
- Double Points: Doubles the score of your next shot.
- Ulti-Ball: Throws three balls onto the play area during your next shot.
3. Aim for the 50 Point Shots
When you're engaging in multiplayer, you should always aim for winning by trying to ace those 50 point score goals. It's a lot easier to get your ball to land in those goals once you get your tilt/spin right. Hitting and nailing those 50 point score goals adds up. Don't try so hard to get those 100 point score goals. Using the Ulti-Ball and Double Points powerup's during these scoring opportunities will laid you greatly.
4. Avoid Trying to Land Those Golden Ticket Shots
Modojo.com let beginning players know that it's not too wise to aim for those golden ticket shots:
Until you're absolutely sure you've mastered the 100 point scores, resist the urge to try for those golden ticket shots. In the early days, you're more likely to miss the shot - meaning you miss out on tickets and a decent score.
5. Attempt Those Golden Ticket Shots for Smaller Point Goals, Though
Modojo.com also posted up some advice regarding the golden ticket shots for smaller point goals:
If, on the other hand, the golden shot is located in the 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 point holes, then it's always worth attempting the shot. In order to reach these holes, make a very direct swipe down the ramp and directly through these scoring holes. How fast you swipe determines which one you'll arrive at, but remember to add a little spin if necessary.
6. What's The Ulti-Ball Really Good For?
The Ulti-Ball power up increases you chances of landing a ball in a higher point goal. Flinging three balls onto the game board and getting them all into a high score goal (such as 50, for instance) is an incredible scoring opportunity that comes up from time to time. Landing those balls into lit-up scoring goals will also increase your chances of getting even more tokens.
7. What About The Double Points Powerup?
The Double Point powerup comes in handy during your attempts at hitting those 50 point scoring goals. Don't use this powerup to try and get a lucky 100 point shot. Only use this powerup when you're certain you can land a 50 point score goal shot. That's when your score will surely skyrocket.
8. What's The Best Way to Use That Redo Powerup?
As for the redo powerup, you'll need to use it during those "DANG, I MESSED THAT LAST SHOT UP!" moments. Whenever you're online and you think you've flubbed one of your last shots, use this power up to try it again. Chances are you'll get the chance you need to nab the win a closely-fought game.
9. Can I Change My Board Layout?
Modojo.com also made sure to let players know about the option to change their play table's appearance:
You can change the appearance of the board layout in Arcade Ball, but you'll have to unlock each one for a large number of tickets first. Once you've unlocked it, simply tap on the board from within the collections page to put it into play.
10. Play Those Daily Spin's As Much As Possible
If you have the time and memory, then put those great attributes of your's towards grabbing those Daily Spin's. They're always visible on the Main Menu, so take your spin ASAP. You'll more than likely win a good amount of tickets, tokens and other cool items. The majority of your prize collecting and buying will become easier the more you play those daily spin's.
