Looking to play Rocket League on your mobile device but unable to find anything that approximates the experience? You might want to check out Zero Four’s Android and iOS title Turbo League, which is a pretty faithful take on the eSports favorite. From the graphics right down to the mechanics, this game is quite reminiscent of the original Rocket League, with the game’s description inviting players to combine real-time physics with driving skills. While driving the available cars in the game, you will be challenged to propel yourself through opposing players and score goals, as you interact and play against real opponents, combining soccer and racing in one unique (or not-so-unique) mix.
The game has other features that allow you to customize your futuristic, “uniquely designed” car, and you can compete in highly-detailed arenas against players from all over the world. This is a truly social gaming experience for fans of Rocket League, but if you haven’t played that game before, or if you’re a Rocket League veteran who needs some help adjusting to the mobile setting, we recommend you read this Turbo League strategy guide, which is mainly designed for the first-time players out there.
1. Change The Controls If You Wish
Those who have played Rocket League or continue to play it may want to check out this tip in particular, as the controls in Turbo League are noticeably different. But you nonetheless have the choice of three different types of control mechanics – button steering, gyro steering, and a sliding steering wheel. You can go to the game’s settings and choose your desired control setup, and if you ask us, it’s best to experiment with all three schemes to see which one suits you the best. It’s important that the control scheme you’re using is the one you’re most familiar with, but we’ve heard that the gyro scheme may be the best for drifting purposes. It may be a chore to steer around in gyro mode, but you’ll never know unless you try!
2. Bank Shots / Trick Shots, Not Straight-Away Shots
Shooting goals and scoring in Turbo League isn’t as simplistic or obvious as you may think. You won’t get too far if you’re the type of player who likes to brute-force the ball into the goal at the fastest possible speed. The game would be too cut-and-dry if it allowed you to score goals like that, and with that in mind, you should practice angling your vehicle and shots, effectively going for bank shots rather than simply trying to shoot the ball.
Jumping would allow your car to spin around in any direction. Hit the buttons to turn left or right so you can move your car in that given direction, and hit the gas or the brakes if you want to do a forward or backward flip respectively. Try mixing and matching these special controls while you’re airborne so you can bank your car and experiment with the game’s physics. For instance, it’s a good idea to hit the ball with the back hood/back top part of your vehicle. Doing this would allow you to shoot the ball with more force, yet more finesse. But that’s not the only way you can get creative when shooting the ball; we encourage you to experiment as much as you could until you find the trick shot that works for you the best, and in ways that could potentially throw off your opponents.
3. Make Use Of The Boost For Those Trick Shots
Need some help getting imaginative and productive with those fancy trick shots? Try using the boost. It just might be what you need to hit a shot that your opponents won’t be expecting, though it’s more than just that – you can also use it to get more air time or to make a faster recovery. One good way to use this would be to jump and direct your vehicle upwards with the boost if you’re expecting the ball to go particularly high. Using the boost in such a manner would allow you to rise into the air really quickly, though this may take some practice to perfect. Likewise, the same applies if you’re trying to convert defense into offense by intercepting the ball while airborne and angling it into the goal. The control system, once again, is different from how it is in Rocket League, so you’re going to have to make some adjustments.
4. Your Boost Can Only Be Used So Often
It may sound tempting to use the boost whenever and wherever possible, but you’ll also have to keep in mind that there’s a boost meter you have to pay attention to. If you use up all the boost available in the meter, you’ll have to spend some real money to buy some of it (not recommended) or watch an ad video to get a refill. But you don’t need to worry too much – when you first play Turbo League, you’ll start with 99 units of boost, which means there’s more than enough boost to go around, and it might take a while before you use it all up. Still, you should be careful not to rely on your boost too much.
5. Generally, You Want To Outsmart Your Opponents
When it comes to beating more opponents in the game, the important thing is trying to confuse them and throw them off. And if you’re not able to shoot the ball into the goal at a high enough percentage, there are other ways to beat your opponent. There are many ways for you to disrupt them or trick them into doing something they don’t want to do. You can even crash into them, especially if you use the boost before you ram into their vehicles; this will throw them off course and prevent them from getting to the ball before you do. This is an effective defensive maneuver that doesn’t just prevent them from scoring, but can also be quite fun to pull off if you do it right.
That’s it for now, as far as our Turbo League tips, cheats and tricks are concerned. We hope you’ve enjoyed this guide and learned something new! Happy gaming!
