Funplus Inc.’s Galaxy Zero places you in the role of an ace pilot whose job is to save the galaxy from an evil galactic empire. It’s a shoot-em-up game with a strong sci-fi feel, and one interesting thing about the game’s blurb is that it’s easy to start and fun to master – sounds familiar? Still, this exciting new iOS title is anything but a purely casual game. You get to customize your pilot in a number of ways, and can get to play in several modes, including Endless Mode, which challenges you to see how long you can survive. You get to upgrade your ships, play in various missions and get to enjoy the game’s social element as well. So with that out of the way, let’s bring you a couple of useful Galaxy Zero cheats, tips and strategies to help you beat those tough stages.
1. Connect Your Game To Facebook
Yes, it’s that tip again, which means you may be curious as to how connecting your game to Facebook can help you in Galaxy Zero. There are actually more than a few practical benefits to this, such as unlocking missiles, earning extra gold, and a lot more. The missiles should come in very handy when it comes to the harder levels in the game.
2. Fly Your Ship At The Bottom
It’s a time-honored tip in games where you have to control a spaceship. In almost all cases, it’s going to be safest to fly at or around the bottom of your iOS device’s display. The only time when you shouldn’t do this is when you’re trying to avoid enemy fire, which also makes it important for you to move quickly and evasively to dodge those attacks.
3. Upgrade Everything
When starting out in Galaxy Zero, your equipment would be far from impressive. But that’s part of the game’s challenge – as you go along, you’ll need to upgrade your ship, your weapons, and other types of equipment. You’ll also be best advised to evolve them to make them even more powerful. More often than not, it’s best to upgrade Armor first as it’s harder to replace and it serves as your defense against enemies. You can also Advance your weapons and your ship if you’ve got all the materials needed.
4. Keep Focusing On The Campaign
Once again, here’s another very common tip you probably have seen many times before. In Galaxy Zero, you want to focus solely on the Campaign for as long as possible, or until you find the enemies too powerful for you. However, that’s why it’s also a good idea to bring at least one friend to help you out, especially in Boss Mode.
5. Memorize The Patterns Of Enemy Ships
All ships in this game, from the lowliest one to those boss ships, have their own firing patterns. As such, you’ll be wise to scout them and learn how those patterns go, which would allow you to plan ahead, know when to dodge attacks, and know when to launch attacks of your own.
6. Replay Stages To Get More Resources
Galaxy Zero allows you to replay stages you’ve previously completed, and by doing this you can get yourself a whole lot more resources. Keep in mind, though, that Red Skull stages can only be played so often per day; grinding on these stages will earn you better rewards, so it should still be worth it despite this limitation.
