Dan The Man Tips, Cheats & Guide: 7 Hints Every Player Should Know

Halfbrick Studios has released a new arcade game for iOS and Android, which is about a man called Dan. Of course, we’re referring to Dan The Man, which is from the very same guys who brought us Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, both classics of the mobile arcade game genre, and you may be wondering what it’s really about. In this game the protagonist is a “Mario-like” hero who wields weapons “that go boom” and takes part in hard-hitting action. There are various game modes, including Story Mode, Battle Mode, and Endless Survival Mode, and as you keep playing the game and defeating more bosses with the arcade-style controls, you can unlock costumes and upgrades. There are also daily events you can take part in for a chance to win super rewards.

You may also be wondering how you can play this game and succeed in all of the three available modes. Well, fear not, as we’ve got just the reading material for you right here. Our exclusive Dan The Man strategy guide will teach you what you need to do to succeed, regardless of the game mode, so read on, and take these tips to heart once you start playing the game!

1. Use The Hit-And-Run Maneuver

While you can use the stock combo to take care of smaller, less troublesome enemies, you’ll want to use another move when dealing with more than one enemy, especially if they’re tough ones. Use hit-and-run tactics when you’ve got three enemies or so in your way, or if you don’t feel like running away, use the down kick to give yourself more leeway and knock an enemy or two back. Once you get the advanced grab ‘n’ throw upgrade, you can “weaponize” enemies against each other by throwing one enemy and hurling them into another. But regardless of how you choose to play this game or the mode you prefer, using a lot of hit-and-run tactics could help you last longer.

2. Experiment With Combos

One key to success in Dan The Man is utilizing and stringing together the right kind of combo. Don’t hesitate to experiment with your skills, as you might luck out on a combo that works well in dispatching of multiple enemies quickly. One of the combos that appear to have worked the best is the high kick and uppercut combo, provided you have both unlock. Use the high kick to jump in an enemy’s direction, while keeping in mind that this move can also take care of enemies that are on the ground. Once that kick lands, edge toward the enemy, grab them, and hit them with an uppercut. This will allow you to do 60 damage points, though there are other combos you can try – if you find something that works for you, then try to unleash it whenever possible!

3. It Doesn’t Matter Which Character You Choose

Although the graphics in this game are better than your average “casual” arcade title and the gameplay more intensive than others, there’s really no difference regardless whether you play as the male hero (Dan), the female hero (Josie), or the custom hero. It’s all up to you, as they all have the same statistical attributes, which is basically none in particular. It’s all about how you play the game, and how you distribute the upgrades. And speaking of upgrades, keep in mind that you cannot share upgrades between characters, and that you have to buy upgrades specific to each of the game’s characters. Hence, you’ll want to focus on one hero instead of spreading your upgrades out to all three if you want to save money and get the most out of your chosen character.

4. Use All Your Skills

As we’ll be explaining later on in slightly greater depth, Dan The Man is a game where your skills are the most important thing that could ensure your success in the game, and not anything else you can buy at the stores. As such, we suggest that you make the most out of your skillset, and know which moves are best in taking down certain types of enemies. For instance, those enemies with shields can be taken out with a Power Attack, once fully charged. There are others, as well, though it’ll be all up to you to learn more about them and what they do.

5. Upgrades Are The Best Thing To Spend Your Coins On

While visiting the shops, particularly the mid-level ones, you may stumble upon a weapon or two that you like. The ranged weapons are especially interesting for many players, as that obviously allows them to take enemies out from a distance. But you will be better off saving up your coins and not trying to reinvent the wheel by adding new weapons to your arsenal. Instead, use your coins to buy skill upgrades, and keep your attacks as bare-bones and minimalist as possible, as your skills are what would matter the most when dealing with enemies. Aside from upgrades, you can also buy food to restore some of your health points in a pinch.

6. Try To Defeat As Many Enemies As Possible

It pays to be as aggressive as possible when chasing down enemies, because you’ll get bonus points at the end of each level corresponding to the number of enemies beaten. Just think of what you can do if you take care of all the enemies – that could give you a pretty hefty bonus once everything is said and done.

7. Explore Your Surroundings

Don’t rush on to the next part of a level once you’ve already taken care of all the enemies in a given area. Instead, try snooping around, because you just might get lucky and find something. The tutorial explains that there are secret areas in the levels, and you’ll want to do some sleuthing around before pushing forward, as you might find healing items (very important if you want to last the long haul), as well as other goodies that could help you out in the game.
