Bomb Buddies Power Ups
The Power Ups in Bomb Buddies include three items: Bomb, Power, and Speed. Bomb powerup increases the number of bombs that you can drop in game. Power powerup increases the range of the fire power, and Speed increases your Bomb Buddies character’s walking speed.
Bomb Buddies Ultimate
Ultimate are the various in game skills that you can use in Bomb Buddies. It should be noted that you can only hold one ultimate at any point in game. If you pick up any additional Bomb Buddies ultimate, the existing one will be replaced. Bomb Buddies has three Ultimate skills that you can use: Kick, Punch, and Throw.
Kick: Kick the bomb across the board. Any player in its path will be stunned.
Punch: Punch a bomb for 3 tiles. The bomb will stun any player on the tile that it lands on.
Throw: Pick up the bomb and throw for 3 tiles. The bomb will stun any player on the tile that it lands on.
Because of the range of kick and ability to stun anyone in its path, the Bomb Buddies ultimate ability Kick is the most versatile and worthwhile skill. Punch and Throw can also be quite formidable if you can land your bombs in locations where you trap your opponents.
Bomb Buddies Devices
The devices are special equipment that you can purchase inside the game play shops. These devices usually have limit on how often that you can use them. However, some gold purchased items do not have that limitation. The devices can generally be divided in the following categories: Initial Powerup Boost, Powerup Limit Increase, Respawn, Ultimate Use Enhancement. In my opinion the respawn devices are the more useful in the game because it offers you an additional life to take down your enemies.
Initial Powerup Boost
This categories include the devices that give you an edge by making you stronger at the beginning of the game. This includes Bomb 2, Power 2, Speed 5, Advanced Speed 6.
Powerup Limit Increase
These Bomb Buddies devices will increase the max amount of powerups that you can collect and use through the game session. The devices include a word Max in it such as Bomb max 8, Advanced Bomb Max 9 and so on.
This category of devices can let you respawn and even revive your teammates.
Ultimate Use Enhancement
By default your Bomb Buddies Ultimate number of uses is limited to 3. However, the devices can increase the use of ultimate to 5 uses.
At the beginning of the game play, you should get at least 2~3 bombs at the beginning to be able to break more soft blocks faster. Get a few Power while getting the bombs. Then you should focus your powerup collection effort toward speed because speed will be able to net you even more powerups toward mid and end game. In addition, speed is key to setup traps and nets to kill your enemies and gain you the win. The bottom line is to get speed first, and gather bomb and power along the way of speed.
