Animation Throwdown Tips & Cheats: A Complete Guide to Skills

We’re back with more Animation Throwdown tips and tricks, and it’s proof not only of the popularity of Kongregate’s new iOS and Android TCG, but also proof that the game is very deep in nature, despite being more casual than the average trading card game. For those who are just learning about this game for the first time, this is a card battler where you can collect cards representing characters from five popular adult cartoons – Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Futurama, King of the Hill, and American Dad, and play through 25 chapters that feature scenes and locations from these shows’ episodes. Now some of the cards in this game are more powerful than others, and these are your rare cards and combo cards, for the most part. And that’s where our new guide comes in, as we shall be explaining below.

As of the moment, there are 19 skills in the game, and these skills are typically assigned to the rare and combo cards. But what’s the deal with those skills, and how do they turn the tide and tweak your strategies? Join us now as we present to you our latest Animation Throwdown strategy guide, which specifically talks about those 19 skills and what’s in it for you if you use them.

General Tips

First of all, let’s talk about what skills do for you in Animation Throwdown. As we said above, they could help you in deciding your strategy, and with that in mind, you should look at the numbers next to the skills. Those numbers represent the effect of those skills; for example, if you see the number 2 next to the Boost icon, that means you’ll get a +2 boost to your attack once you play that card as part of a combo you’re chaining together.

You may also see some cards that have an additional symbol, which is a star symbol, meaning skills of the card will only impact cards from the same cartoon. So if you see a Peter Griffin card with a star symbol, it will only affect cards corresponding to Family Guy. It’s as simple as that, though it does help a bit if you’ve got previous knowledge of most, if not all the shows represented in Animation Throwdown.

Now that we’ve given you some general tips on how to interpret cards with skills, let’s get to those skills, as we shall be listing them in alphabetical order and showing you what they’re capable of once played.
