School Days Tips & Hints: 5 Advanced Tricks You Never Heard Before

Developer MDickie (Mat Dickie) is known for his wrestling-based mobile titles, as well as the prison simulator Hard Time. His new game School Days is now available for iOS and Android devices alike. The game, as we told you before, kicks off where Hard Time left off, and the prison of the former game is now a school in the latter. It’s a school that’s got the worst types of students, not to mention the worst types of teachers, who, like the students, aren’t afraid to mix it up physically. And if you pay close attention to the characters, you’ll notice that Dickie isn’t shy about dropping pop culture references – you’ve got students who look like (and are named similarly to) Miley Cyrus, WWE Superstar John Cena, and even Jimmy Hopkins, protagonist of Rockstar’s controversial video game Bully.

Now, that we’re done preparing you for the game, let’s move on to our list of School Days tips and tricks that we believe we may have missed the first time around – this time, though, we’re going to get a bit more advanced.

1. Play The Game Online

Sure, you’re probably used to us telling you to play with your Wi-Fi or data on, so as to help the developers catch a break. But there’s another benefit to playing School Days online. Since not all of us can remember what we learned in school, it’s a good idea to be online while playing, so you can Google search the answers to the tests and avoid having your sanity meter go down for answering teacher’s questions incorrectly and getting a ding on your report card.

2. Have The Right Equipment For Certain Classes

Music class will require you to have a musical instrument, Sports class will require some sort of athletic equipment, while you’ll need to have some food or drinks with you for Cookery class. With that in mind, make sure you’ve got said equipment about 1-3 periods before these classes – you can find musical instruments in the Theatre, sports equipment in the Gym, and food/drinks in the Cafeteria. Not bringing equipment automatically decreases your grade, and, as mentioned above, your sanity as well.

3. Make Sure You Don’t Have These Requisite Items Too Early

In relation to the above tip, you also wouldn’t want to have these items ready much earlier than you should. For example, if you’ve got a dumbbell for your Sports class scheduled for 3 p.m. as early as the first period, you leave yourself more vulnerable to the item getting stolen by another student…or teacher. And when that happens, your sanity meter will take a good beating.

4. Don’t Dump Potential Partners

Occasionally, a student will come up to you and tell you someone they know has a thing for you. If you agree to get to know this guy or girl, you’ll get yourself a boyfriend/girlfriend, which could be good for your sanity. But if you think this person isn’t your type, said guy or girl instantly becomes your enemy, and is likely to pick a fight on you the moment he/she sees you!

5. Spend Your Free Time Usefully

If you don’t have any Music or Sports class scheduled, you might want to pick up a musical instrument or dumbbell if you see them lying around. Playing that instrument or flexing that dumbbell will cause your sanity meter to go up, while also increasing your popularity.

If you don’t have private school days, just start the game with a man that has a girly face and change the appearance to make him look like a woman without him actually being one. If you do have private school days, customize your female character, but change the gender to male, This is the only way for there to be a lesbian or gay couple in the game. Hope I helped you!
