Shooty Skies Character Unlock and Basic Strategy

Basic Strategy
In shooty skies, if your goal is to get higher points. This general strategy tips may be able to help you. Please let us know if you unlock special characters and how did you unlock them!

1. Learn the Patterns
Play the game multiple times and memorize base bullet movements of different generic mobs. Certain mobs shoot out multiple bullets or homing missiles. By learning about these basic patterns, you will be more prepared to dodge the bullets.

You can only shoot down enemies if you can manage to stay alive.

2. Decide on a Tablet or Mobile Phone device
Depending on your play style, you may find it much easier to play on either one of the devices. It can be much easier to dodge on a mobile phone since it requires less “movement” for you to move your planes, however it can also be a downfall by failing to see the bullets. So you will have to make your best pick and play from there.

3. Rent a Stronger Weapon
You should play all of your stages using a Quad gun or higher. A quad gun can be enabled when you go into the weapon screen and watch a video. Every weapon “rental” or activation lasts for 2 hours. So if you do decide to spend coins for a stronger weapon, plan for a longer playing session to at least get your money’s worth.

It should noted that sometimes the Video Ad may be grayed out, swiping left or right may be able to unlock it.

4. Use a playable character with Background
Certain playable characters change the background of the stage. These backdrop images can include black and white, this makes the enemy bullets very easy to see. One such character is Graff.
