Nekki’s Shadow Fight 2 is a great fighting title available for iOS and Android devices that mixes both classical-style fighting games with role playing game elements. But what does this mean for you, the gamer? Well, you can equip your character with countless lethal weapons and rare armor sets, while having them make use of dozens of realistic martial arts techniques. Your goal in the game is to close the Gate of Shadows, so this isn’t your average fighting game with little to no storyline involved. Having gotten that out of the way, let’s bring you some Shadow Fight 2 cheats, tips and tricks that can help you out if you’re just starting out in the game.
1. Learn The Control System
You can fight with a number of different punching and kicking moves, and you can change these moves depending on how you’re holding Shadow Fight 2’s virtual joystick. If you point it forward, for instance, you’ll be launching attacking moves, while pointing it backwards will allow you to adopt a more defensive move set.
2. Aim For The Head
When fighting enemies in Shadow Fight 2, you’re best off going for a shot to the head, or any other vulnerable part of your opponent’s body. And it will even be better if you’re able to “telegraph” an opponent’s move, or predict it based on their attacking style. If an enemy jumps in toward your direction, hold down-back on your joystick and hit on the kick button. This will allow you to kick your opponent in the head and drop them to the ground.
3. If You Lost, Replay The Fight
It’s very simple – replay the fight after you’ve taken stock of what happened the first time around, and why you lost. By doing this, you can formulate an effective counter-attack against your foe; typically, you’ll do best with the mule kick we described in the second tip, the jump kick (up-right/kick), and other offense-oriented moves. Try to string those moves together for a combo and you’ll be knocking out your enemy in no time.
4. Keep Your Fighter Moving If Your Enemy Gets Behind You
This is another easy tip, so you shouldn’t panic if you notice your enemy has somehow gotten behind you. Use the joystick to evade your enemy and run away, and while doing that, think of what to do next against your foe. Remember that you shouldn’t be hitting any in-game buttons while running or jumping away with your in-game joystick.
5. Upgrade Your Fighter
Now, you would definitely want to upgrade your Shadow Fight 2 character, but the best and most natural way to do this is to consistently win fights. Upgrading allows you to unlock new moves for your fighter – these moves may include foot sweeps and flying kicks, and a whole lot of other advanced moves not originally available at the start.
6. Unlock New Gear With Gems And Coins
It can be weapons or costumes/armor, but you can unlock all this by using your gems and coins. You can also pay real money for these items, though we would advise you to use gems and coins so as to save on your hard-earned real-life cash.
