I love Marvel Puzzle Quest. Admittedly, I’m obsessed with the game. Since it just surpassed 2 million downloads, I thought now would be as good a time as any to cover the Spider-Man heal in the game.

The Spider-Man heal was covered in our Marvel Puzzle Quest guide. However, that was for new players without a Spider-Man of their own to keep them in the game. With this, you’ll be able to conserve your health packs for when you really need them.

To do this yourself, you’ll need a bare minimum of two Spider-Man covers: 1 Web Bandages, 1 All Tied Up. The more of them you have, the better off you’ll be. I run a 3/5/5 Spider-Man build as my main character. Other characters are dictated by the event you’re playing at the time.

Also, if you don’t have Spider-Man classic, Black Widow (Original) works in a pinch. You’ll get the added benefit of AP disruption from Aggressive Recon, too, which can be a game changer.

Cookie Run for Kakao was my guilty pleasure. I say “was” because it no longer exists in the App Store. In its place is a version of Cookie Run that’s translated into English (rather than its native Korean), but nearly a year’s worth of updates behind.

On the plus side? I’m pretty familiar with the game and can give you a few tips. Also, we can talk about the best Cookies to target and which cookies to avoid. I’m looking at you, Rock Star Cookie (which should come out around November 2014 or so).

Let’s begin, shall we?

General Tips

There’s a lot of things going on in Cookie Run, but the basic premise is to run as far as you can for as long as you can while collecting as much as you can. Cookie Run is stupid simple, honestly, but it’s good fun.

Obstacles are Always in the Same Pattern

This is actually not entirely true, as updates bring new patterns and obstacles to the game, but once they’re there, that’s the pattern until the next update. If you can’t react to what you see (which, really, isn’t that hard), then you should be able to memorize the patterns fairly easily over time.

Target what you want and stick to that plan

There are a LOT of Cookies already. Almost every update brings another Cookie, its best Combination Pet, and some Treasures to get your grubby mitts on. Don’t get distracted by the shiny new things. You’ll be disappointed when you go off your path to get a cookie that you never use again, such as the upcoming Cheerleader Cookie.

Use the Free Trial Run

Like League of Legends, you’ll get to test out a new Cookie (or three) every day. You don’t get to keep the coins and the points won’t be saved for your leaderboards. However, it will give you an idea of how to play with that cookie and whether or not it’s worth buying. May as well take an unfamiliar cookie for a spin to see how it handles.

Get to Level 30 as soon as possible

The Angel Cookie is one of the best all around cookies in the game. Having a magnet suck in jelly and coins at all times sounds pretty good, right? It is.

Later, there will be an updated Fairy Cookie (perhaps a year from now) with higher hit points and a shield, but the magnet is weaker overall.

While we’re at it, also grind to Level 45 to unlock an additional treasure slot. Since you’re that close anyhow, grind out 5 more levels to pick up the Level 50 Trophy. It gives you a chance at additional Crystals during your Daily Login. You’re going to need them, especially if you love the treasure pieces as much as I do.

Equip your Second Cookie

If you’re just starting, you’re a VERY long ways from using the Second Cookie effectively.

Find some friends who don’t mind LINE spam

Though there are limits on just how many gift points you can earn through spam messages, there’s no reason not to get a network of friends to play with here.

You can also add me to your LINE. Do a search on “Fade to Slack” and get ready for some spam.

Feel free to leave your LINE ID in the comments section.

Cookie Progression

Simple fact: Some Cookies are simply better than others. Here is my suggested path for the current version of the game.

Brave Cookie -> Bright Cookie -> Buttercream Choco Cookie -> Angel Cookie -> Hero Cookie (with Angel’s Feather or other mini-magnet treasure)

The Brave Cookie is the default. Don’t level him up much or at all. As soon as possible, but the Bright Cookie. This little gingerbread girl gives you your first ability, an XP bonus, that should help you grind out early levels without downtime. Once you can afford to do so, buy the Buttercream Choco Cookie. This cookie gives you up to 25% more coins and is pretty much all you’ll need until Level 30. If you want to buy other cookies in the interim, feel free, but you can never have too many coins, and you’ll need 89,000 to buy the Angel Cookie.

From that point forward, the Angel Cookie becomes your go-to Cookie. You should be able to get the Cozy Yarn Pet within the first few weeks. When paired with the Angel Cookie and BONUSTIME treasures, you’ll be able to get about 4,000-5,000 coins fairly easily.

Here’s an example of the Angel and Cozy Yarn in action:

Some cookies have the “Power+” banner under their cookie grade, such as the Special Forces Cookie. This indicates a passive ability. While the cookies themselves (Cheerleader Cookie and Fairy Cookie will come later) aren’t particularly great, their passive abilities may make them worth the purchase.

What Pets are the Best?

Cozy Yarn is the best of the Common Egg bunch.

Cozy Yarn is the best of the Common Egg bunch.

Your first month’s worth of crystals should go towards those lousy Common Eggs. Yes, most of the C-level and B-level pets are weak, but there are a few bright spots.

The Cheeseberry Pet should be the first really useful one you get. Not only can it pick up an item you missed, but it also gives the Bright Cookie 40 more health as the best combo.

Personally, I love the Cozy Yarn Pet. With proper equipment, it’ll net you tons of points and coins when used with the Angel Cookie.

Early on, it’s hard to argue with the Gold Drop pet. It’s well worth annoying 30 friends (for those of you who actually have friends on LINE) just to get it and not have to spend so much time grinding out for coins. I don’t know if you can obtain the Gold Drop from a Rainbow Egg (I never did and opened around 30 in my time on “for Kakao”), but this could save you a lot of trouble.

Most of the good S-Level pets have yet to be released.

Other pets depend upon how you play and what cookie you use. Some of the combinations are very strong. Others are relatively weak.

Fair Warning for Everyone Buying Treasure

Whether you’re staying the free-to-play route or whaling out, be advised that you can get more than one copy of a treasure. While this is potentially cool (nothing wrong with loads of Power+ Crystal generators), it’s mostly lame. Don’t be surprised when you’re let down. I had three Ice Cream Cone treasures at one point in the “for Kakao” version.

“Random” is the worst thing in the free-to-play world, isn’t it?

 

(This guide is far from complete. More to come in the coming days, including what to expect from future updates.)

Art of Titanfall

Did you know there was an art book for Titanfall? Yeah, it’s a thing, and it’s exceptionally rad. Published by Titan Books, The Art of Titanfall gives fans a glimpse into the game that goes beyond the surface – right into the very guts of the game and all the concepts that make Titanfall’s aesthetic foundation.

The Art of Titanfall is just plain cool, serving not only as a rare insider look into the game’s inner workings, but also as a handy gallery of artistic reference.

1The Art of Titanfall features nearly two-hundred pages of incredible full color illustrations, ranging the entire imaginable gamut; weapons, mechs, vehicles, soldiers, and locations are all given equal and extensive coverage. It’s a big game, so the rich amount of artwork showcased in The Art of Titanfall should come as no surprise.

Of particular note is the chapter on weaponry – the concept art for Titanfall’s many guns manages to convey a believable mix of contemporary and futuristic styles, creating fantasy armaments that don’t require you to suspend much belief. As a teen who grew up drawing this kind of stuff for fun, I would have loved to have had a copy of this book back then.

It’s clear that the artists put in a great deal of love when creating Titanfall’s universe; the same amount of care and respect went into the making of the art book. It’s a beautiful addition to any collection, and fans of the game shouldn’t pass it up.

The dreaded Cookie Run update screen that leads to no update for US iTunes users.

This Cookie Run update screen leads to no update for US iTunes users.

This, ladies and gentlemen, may be a bit of a cautionary tale. Last week, Cookie Run (쿠키런) for Kakao mysteriously disappeared from the US App Store. As a free-to-play game with in-app purchases, of which my daughter and I have made in the past, the lack of information is concerning. The game is rendered completely unplayable for anyone using the “for Kakao” network on a US iTunes account.

Update: It’s been confirmed as removed from the Canadian and United Kingdom App Store, as well.

In its place is LINE Cookie Run. There’s a good chance that Devsisters, the Cookie Run developer licensed the game out for use in the United States. That’s all fine and dandy for those in the new market, but it also leaves users such as myself on the outside looking in.

While it’s safe to assume this affects a very small percentage of the estimated 120,000 United States citizens living in South Korea, I know of a handful of people that are pissed right now with no way to vent. I’m sure those people know others, what with this being a social game and all. I’m here to give a voice for the voiceless. Cookie Run for Kakao is one of my daily games. I’ve been playing it on and off for about two years, now, and have written about it a couple of times. It’s immensely popular with children and adults alike in South Korea.

Cookie Run went largely ignored in the United States and other Western countries under its Oven Break 2 moniker. It was removed from the App Store back in December 2013, but it received a final update that didn’t complete break the game via its removal.

If you can’t update Cookie Run for Kakao for the same reason, we’d love to hear about it in the comments.

I’ve reached out to Devsisters, the Korean developer behind Cookie Run, hoping for answers. If that doesn’t work, I’ve got nothing better to do this weekend than hit up their Gangnam office demanding some answers.

Update 2: I’ve tried contacting Devsisters via Twitter, Facebook, their app support channel, and via phone. It’s worth noting that passive aggression (and blatantly ignoring people) is actually culturally acceptable here in South Korea. This week, I’m enlisting the help of a Korean-speaking co-worker for a little help in this matter. Hopefully, we can get a response.

Update 3: As Maggie mentioned in the comment section, you can delete and re-install through the App Store to get the latest update as a workaround.

To do this, delete the app. Then, in the App Store, go to the Updates tab. At the top, click “Purchased >” and scroll through until you find Cookie Run for Kakao. It should have the iCloud icon next to it.

Be advised, this will only work until the next required update, at which time you’ll need to go through this process again.

CnDRRHD_imsonHey, remember 1990? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kicked shell the big screen, Macauley Culkin was left Home Alone by his horrible parents, and Capcom followed up Duck Tales with Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. Okay, that last one felt forced, but I really had nothing for an opening.

So, now that you’re feeling nostalgic and whatnot, check out this awesome Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers mock-up by pixel artist extraordinaire Simon S. Anderson. Anderson, the creator of upcoming indie gem Owlboy, referred to this as a weekend project. It deserves a little more love than the 500+ retweets he got over there.

If you’re wondering what Gadget is doing in the picture above, then you’re not alone. Don’t forget. The whole premise of the game is to save Gadget from Fat Cat because, you know, damsels always be in distress, son.

More amazing than anything else, really, is that screen above has a whopping 48 colors. No sense in being modest, imson. We’d be cool if you wanted to go crazy with 64 colors, man. Live a little.

If pictures speak a thousand words, then here are my first six.

If pictures speak a thousand words, then here are my first six.

Could this lead to something more now that WayForward is done with Duck Tales? Anderson had a small part in that project as well, working with WayForward on a mock-up.

Let's be honest. This screen is cool and all, but far less exciting.

Let’s be honest. This screen is cool and all, but far less exciting.

While Duck Tales was the first Capcom-Disney NES collaboration, Chip n’ Dale was probably the better of the two games. Keep your fingers crossed, people. Don’t forget there was a time before Metal Gear Solid where hiding behind a box was awesome, and that was the summer of 1990.

The reveal was made during the ending ceremonies of Final Round XVII as the winner Ryan Hart was given a chance to spar against Capcom’s Combofiend, who was playing a near-finished version of Decapre.

The reception was initially quiet, with the crowd getting a little more hype as they witnessed her play out in game. Her move set involves a number of teleports and mid-air specials. She has also been confirmed to be a charge character.

With the clues Capcom had dished out leading up the reveal, many people were able to predict Decapre as the likely candidate, despite Ono’s red herring hint that “only four people” on the internet had guessed correctly.

Four? More like forty-thousand, buddy.

TIPS AND TRICKS

  • Collect coins that pop up while browsing the zoo. They can be worth anywhere from 1 to 1000 coins, depending on how lucky you are. Finding a 1K coin can save you a ton of time!
  • In addition to coins, zoo patrons will chuck discobux on occasion. Snatch those, too!
  • Periodically, some of your animals will “escape” from their rescue holding cells. Tap the magnifying lens icon that pops up to engage in the searching challenge. Finding stray animals is easy (just search throughout the habitats until you find them; they’re marked with exclamation points), and you’ll be rewarded with a handsome sum of coins or discobux for finding them and returning them to safety.
  • When you get an offer to sell one or more of your animals, go for it unless you’re trying desperately to unlock the next rescue tier. They’re worth a ton of cash, and we’re sure they’ll be just as happy in some other random rescue resort.
  • Don’t go chasing waterfalls! Or, rather, don’t bother rescuing an animal you know you can’t catch. For instance, if there’s three more rabbit tiles on the map and you only have two attempts remaining, try to find some coins instead.
  • Early on in the game, the hour long disco party is the way to go. Aside from eeking out a rare or mythical rescue, this is what you should be saving your discobux for. For 10 discobux, you can rack up plenty of loot – your animals are guaranteed to stay awake for an entire hour, and their coin output is doubled. No rest for the rescued!
  • Always try to root out the rare and mythical creatures over common ones. As you might have guessed, they show up less often, and since the price of rescues goes up with every attempt, it’s just more efficient. Also, rare critters produce more coins. Use the pattern tables in this guide, and you should be able to find those rare/mythical animals when they decide to show up.
  • Opt for the 1 minute disco party to wake all your critters at once and reset the sleep timer.
  • After maxing out the level of any given animal, you can release them for cash once rescued and work towards getting trophies. When you get an animal’s trophy, your reward is a free disco party. BRONZE TROPHY = 1 minute disco party. SILVER TROPHY = 5 minute disco party. GOLD TROPHY = 10 minute disco party. DIAMOND TROPHY = 15 minute disco party.
  • Take the free attempts offer only when you’re sure you can catch another animal in five turns. Once you’ve seen all the videos they want to show you that day, they won’t offer them again for a while.
