Flipping Legend is a tap to play game that operates on a pattern based gameplay style.

Flipping Legend is one of the rare purely tap to play games available both for Apple and Android operating devices that also has a strategy and pattern recognition based gameplay element in it. The game stems from browser versions of the game with the same concept that got immense popularity in a relatively short amount of time on the internet. Introduced in an age where flash gaming was the latest thing, the original Pattern based flash games quickly gained a loyal and devoted player base through the unique and extremely addictive gameplay. The mobile game Flipping Legend basically continues upon the original legacy of strategy and pattern based browser games and incorporates all the elements of gameplay in addition to providing a beautiful looking and highly interactive user interface. Where the original pattern based browser game was just a mindless clicking game where the main objective was to kill as many creatures as you can, the mobile game builds upon an interesting storyline and takes you on an adventure as you compete with your friends on Facebook for the title of the Ultimate Flipping Legend!
The gameplay mechanics of Flipping Legend are very straightforward and the game is designed to be played by players of all ages and genders so naturally the difficulty level is quite low. However, earning the title of Ultimate Legend in the game is something reserved only for the most dedicated and passionate players. The game has an exponential reward rate but that comes coupled with an even more sharply increasing difficulty as you move ahead in the game.
Purchasing in game items or the Golden Coins as they are referred to in Flipping Legend is also an alternative option for those players whose fingers start aching from tapping on the screen too much or if you think tapping the screen too fast might be detrimental to the health of your smartphone. Therefore, if you are not a pay to play player, this guide includes some tips on how to proceed in order to reap the best rewards, level up the fastest and follow the chosen path to becoming the Ultimate Flipping Legend!
1. Choosing The Perfect Legend Warrior
In Flipping Legend, there is an ensemble of two different kinds of Legends. “Melee” legends are the characters which can only attack physically and from a very close range. These characters usually wield weapons like swords, lances or axes and have a very high attack power and abilities. Their lack of range is usually compensated for by their large health points and good defensive as well as offensive skills. Similarly there are “Ranged” legends in the game which can attack from different distances varying from character to character in the game. The Ranged legends are found in the main menu and most of them have special abilities and unlockable features against the gold coins that you earn by playing the game. However these ranged legends have much lesser hit points as compared to the stronger Melee legends and therefore are much easier to kill. They also usually have a lower movement speed and a slow turn rate so escape is usually harder for them if caught unawares by a monster or enemy warrior on any tile.
Both Melee and Ranged legends have their uses in different games and your chances of winning or losing are partially already decided while the Legend picking phase is under process. For example, if you play with only Melee heroes and do not know how to handle a single Ranged legend, it will bode very bad for you both in the early game as well as late game phases especially if there are a lot of enemy monsters lined up against you. This legend strategy has great late game potential due to the immense damage per second output of an a Melee legend but it will be actually very hard for the Melee legends to reach a point that will enable them to make such progress that will help them deal that damage in the late game phase. Similarly an All-Ranged legend practice is a recipe for disaster because a single powerful Enemy Melee hero with higher attack can easily take out your ranged legends without dying.
There is no absolute defined criteria for choosing the line-up for a particular gaming session as the process is not under your control and the game throws random legends at you quite often. However at the higher levels, it is prudent to actually plan during the extra time before picking any legends and aim for combination line-ups. This is an excellent strategy in most cases and creates great synergy between the legends regardless of whether they belong to the same faction or not. Players that are entirely focused on meeting objectives or a gameplay style that includes many high attack legends will surely be able to end the game much faster than those which have legends fighting solo battles. Remember, Flipping Legend is a strategic effort and you can win a game only and only if you synergize your plans with the requirements of a particular level.
2. Your Reflexes Are Your Greatest Weapon
Flipping Legend is a game that pits your skill against the talent of thousands of players from all around the world. In order to prove yourself worthy of being called a Champion, you have to practice as much as you can in this game. An essential part of being called a pro player of Flipping Legend is to have killer reflexes and an extremely short reaction time. This is a game in which fights take at most two to five seconds and in that limited time you have to make split second decisions about which skill to use or to retreat from the enemy or dodge them and save your legend from dying unnecessarily. This perfect timing that you will notice in many pro games and competitions is a product of sheer hard work and countless hours devoted to practice in the game.
In the first few levels of the game you will be falsely led to believe by the in game tutorials that there is plenty of time available for you to easily tap your way out of every level. However do not trust the developers on this because they have made sure that you are forced to try hard to even barely survive during the later levels. During the higher levels, you will instantly feel pushed by the need to tap as fast as you can because if you don’t the life bar will deplete faster than you can tap and you will ultimately lose.
A key reflex that you need to focus on developing is the use of your skills. Instead of trying out a new legend every other day, choose a single legend that you like or you think you can play well after trying him in battle. Give two to three hours of practice to fully understand what each skill of that legend does. Some new players get exasperated when a fight starts with the enemy and begin to spam all of their skills. This is the main cause of those fights with the enemy which end badly for you. Therefore more practice beforehand will help you save hours of frustration later on in Flipping Legend.
Another reaction that you need to master is the sixth sense of detection in this game. This sense only comes with time as you play more and more games. Having a good sense means you literally get a gut feeling that something is wrong and you might be need to tap faster or put all of your focus into devising new strategies for dodging enemies as you move into unknown territories. At other times you might feel a knot in your stomach before a fight is about to start and this allows you to anticipate the enemy’s attacks ahead of time. Use this sense to your advantage and become the Ultimate Legend in Flipping Legend.
3. A Race Against Your Health
Flipping Legend has one of the most unique and interesting ways of giving you a real challenge during every level that you play. This is the life bar that acts as the level timer plus your game over cue. You will have to take care to increase the frequency of your taps as you move on to the higher levels because the life bar starts to decrease at a very rapid pace when you proceed past the second dimension in Flipping Legend. The first and foremost requirement of the race against your own health is to make sure your fingers are very well rested and you are not in a family gathering or public event where you could be scolded for the extreme tapping behavior that is required of you. You begin with a standard sized health bar which is located in the center of the screen of your smartphone. The size of your health bar will increase as you collect more gold coins and move to higher levels and dimensions in the game.
No extra perks or benefits are available to you at the start of the game but as you progress to the higher levels more and more bonuses and boosts will become available to you along with many upgrades and power ups that start to unlock. Remember, you have to always keep up with your ever depleting health bar so it is best to invest your earnings and rewards into upgrades and perks that increase the power of your legend and allow him to sustain for longer.
Try to get as many levels as possible into the “life bar size” upgrade as this will be your main counter measure for the challenging health bar situation in the game. Getting too many levels into this upgrade will be quite difficult as the coin requirement for each successive upgrade exponentially increases. There is a solution to this problem: if you haven’t noticed it yet, you can jump backwards onto tiles that contain coins as well thereby creating a pattern of killing enemies and collecting coins at the same time. This trick is can be quite hard to execute for new players but with an adequate amount of practice in the right direction, it becomes a force of habit and allows you to collect gold coins much faster and achieve your health bar size upgrades before it becomes too much of a menace for you.
Another core tip for all players is to avoid spending golden cookies on additional features like “Daily Bonus” or the “The Treasure Chest”. Both of these features eat up your gold coins very fast and you will not be able to save up for the later perks which give you a really huge boost in the game. It is best to save up and be thankful than to waste and regret your decisions later on.
At the end it all comes down to how much time you can spare for this epic time wasting game. Be mindful of the fact that tapping away to flip your legend across and crush your enemies is a very addictive experience and you will find yourself unable to think about anything else while you are senselessly tapping on the screen of your smartphone. Therefore choose your priorities with caution and do not let what the heart wants take control over what your mind tells you to do!
4. Devising Strategies And Using Patterns
It seems like the passionate path of the Aggressive tapping flipping legend was not one destined for you. It does not really matter because thinkers have always been one step ahead and even stronger than many legendary warriors so fret not. Rejoice in the knowledge that this path requires much less physical effort and can potentially save you from embarrassing yourself in a crowd or an important meeting. Unlike the path of the Aggressive warrior, you do need any physical strain for this path but you do need a good amount of mental concentration and decision making ability. Needless to say this path is for those clever players who have found the way to make the game work for them while they sit back, relax and watch the magic happen on the screen of their smartphone.
Once you have chosen the path of the “Strategist”, the first thing you need to make sure of is to follow the objectives given to you by the game for at least the first 3 levels. This will ensure that you get a handsome collection of Legend Characters, Upgrades and Perks. You need to mainly focus upon increasing the upgrades available for your Legends which indicate the number of taps and flips that you need to perform while you are touching the screen and the number required to complete a level successfully. This tapping counter serves to strategize your attacks on the enemy even while you are not at your optimum health. Upgrades like the “Mine Trapper”, “Double Power” and “Protective Shield” are a few initial perks to increase your confidence in your abilities and pump you to beat the game artificial intelligence.
As you begin to move ahead to the higher levels you will notice that you can now unlock legend warriors with cross disciplinary abilities like strong warriors with a small arsenal of magic spells up their sleeves. These arcane warriors will form the cornerstone of your strategy for the level and as a Strategist you have to take into account all the different abilities that they possess in order to make the most lethal combination possible with all the flipping patterns that you have learnt in your journey up until this point. In the end, all that really matters is your ability to judge different types of scenarios and the best suited response to each of them. So let your mind run free and creativity go wild in Flipping Legend!
