Last week, we gave you a complete and detailed strategy guide for Bus Rush, a fantastic game by Gameville Studio, which is available for Android devices. But what is this game about? As a backgrounder/refresher, Bus Rush is an endless runner where your character has to run around the city in a varying array of random scenarios while trying to lose a large, angry, powerful, and super-quick gorilla. Hit an obstacle the wrong way and your run is over – the gorilla will either eat you or pose as if he’s mugging it up for a selfie as he celebrates your defeat.
This game allows you to go on missions or quests, where you’ll have to fulfill certain objectives in order to earn more coins (main currency), rubies (premium currency), or hoverboards. But how can you go about completing these missions with less troubles and less hassles? How can you complete more of those missions? Read on as that’s what we shall be dealing with in this second Bus Rush strategy guide.
1. Play The Game Online
There are a lot of ads in Bus Rush, but fortunately, they don’t really interfere with gameplay. That means you can play online and watch ad videos in order to revive yourself and continue the game after you get killed. Keep watching those ad videos as long as they’re available, especially if you’ve got a hard mission to accomplish that cannot be finished in one run or two. You can also play offline and use your rubies for revives/continues, though the game will charge you more rubies with each successive revive you use in a run. And those rubies could really run out quickly if you use the solely for revives.
2. How To Collide With Bus Sides The Right Way
Sometimes, your missions will include having to collide, or bump your character against the side of a bus so many times in one run. Sounds easy, right? Unfortunately, it isn’t. Once the game asks you to collide ten times or more, it’s going to be very tricky as you won’t always have a good chance to bump the side of a bus. There is, however, a method to the madness. When you collide (against the sides, and not in front, which will kill you), the gorilla will edge ever so close to you. Doing this again with the gorilla still in sight will automatically kill you. But you wouldn’t want to do this too soon after you lose the gorilla; wait about a second or two before trying for a second collision.
As a bonus tip, the game doesn’t count collisions that take place when you’re riding on a hoverboard. As hoverboards allow you to destroy one obstacle just by running toward it and also give you a speed boost to elude the gorilla, any collision you made while riding a board won’t count toward your total.
3. Don’t Jump Too Much When Using The Shoes
Personally, I find the Super Shoes to be the most useless power-up in the game – in fact, I refer to them as “silly shoes” on occasion. But there are missions where you’ll have to gather so many Super Shoes in a run, making them a necessary evil you’ll have to deal with. We suggest not using those shoes for jumping unless it’s absolutely necessary, as that might throw you off your rhythm.
4. Redeem Your Daily Rewards And Surprise Rewards
Daily rewards for logging in on consecutive days can run the gamut – they may include gold, rubies, hoverboards, or even new characters, with rewards getting better for each progressive day you log in to the game. Given the varied rewards, we recommend logging in daily, because you wouldn’t want to blow all your coins on boards and/or rubies!
Also, the orange Surprise Boxes come with the same types of rewards in them, so if you see one pop up during a run, go grab it and open it when your run has ended.
5. Use Your Coins For Hoverboards And Rubies
Now if you ever do run short of hoverboards (for destroying obstacles) or rubies (for continuing failed runs), you can go to the in-app store and buy some for a surprisingly competitive price. Boards cost you 300 gold coins per unit, while rubies cost 500 gold coins, again per unit. Sometimes, those daily rewards and surprise box rewards won’t be enough, and since every character/board design functions in the same way, buying boards or rubies would be a much sounder “financial decision” in Bus Rush.
