Wizard Swipe is a new RPG for Android and iOS platforms by Niceplay Games, that’s made for anyone who likes fire and balls. This game’s features include a simple in-game mechanic that lets you launch fireballs by swiping, or holding them for a bit so you can launch a more powerful blast. You can master other elements as well, namely ice, air, acid, and lightning, as you follow the enormous skill tree. There are boss battles, as every good RPG should, but unlike a lot of other RPGs we cover, there’s a more casual touch to this game as it’s endless – the game boasts of unlimited levels. It also promises great replay value, as levels are all randomized each time you play.
The game may be simpler to play than the average role-playing game, but that doesn’t mean it’s always the best idea to start playing without any background into the game, or any help beyond the stock tutorials. Read on, as we share with you our exclusive Wizard Swipe strategy guide, which should cover all of the basics, as well as a couple of more advanced tips.
1. Watch Ad Videos For More Coins
It’s not unusual for us to be bringing up this tip, but this time, we’re going to make this the first and most basic one for Wizard Swipe. You will want to watch the ad videos the game serves up, which would usually be once you’ve completed a round and collected your coins. Watching the ad would double the coins you won for completing the level, so if you’re at home, turn your Wi-Fi on when it’s time to play the game.
2. Have Enough Pyroblasts Ready
During the quieter, less intense moments of the game, make sure to load up on that pyroblast and have it ready for when you need it most. These are fireballs that come with splash damage, and their intensity would depend on your fireball damage stats and whatever upgrades you currently have. But you shouldn’t use them all of the time; you regular fireball will, in many cases, be your bread and butter. Charge one pyroblast up whenever there’s a break in the action, so that way you can launch it at enemies that are bunched closely together. That splash damage will really come in handy against those larger groups. In the early goings, you won’t have the luxury to use pyroblasts too often, but you will have that luxury once you’ve acquired the penetration upgrade.
3. What Should You Level Up First?
Spell Damage will be the very first upgrade you’ll be able to buy in the game, and it works simply by increasing damage for all of your spells. Sounds like a very basic upgrade, which may be true, but consider that all your spells are upgraded – make sure you spend toward upgrading Spell Damage! Each upgrade will increase your overall spell damage by 25 percent, so don’t be shy to spend on those upgrades if you can afford them.
4. Follow The Missions And Complete Them
All levels in Wizard Swipe have three missions each, and you should work on completing them all. Completing missions will give you gold, as well as a red gem, which is the game’s premium currency. You will use those gems to open gates once you get a bit farther into the game, so don’t spend them just yet; hold on to them for as long as possible. So how do these missions work, and what can you expect from them?
The very first mission in a level would be to complete it – that’s a given, as long as you’re able to survive at the end of the level. But the other two missions would tend to vary – sometimes you may be asked to focus on killing so many enemies with a specific spell, sometimes you may need to kill enemies with 100 percent precision, and sometimes you may have to finish the level with no damage whatsoever. You’re always free to replay levels to complete missions you weren’t able to complete the first time around; go do this once you’ve got yourself upgraded a bit more and those other missions should be less of a problem.
5. How To Deal With Those Pesky Mages
The Skeleton Mage will be one of the new enemies you’ll get to meet in the early parts of the game. They can be very tricky at first, as their tendency is to teleport out of harm’s way if there’s a fireball or a similar projectile being fired at them. Fortunately for you, though, their teleports have a cool-down time of a few seconds. That means you can use some shifty tactics to fool them – try faking a shot to their present position, then following up with actual fireballs around them. Chances are they’ll be teleporting into one of those fireballs, which should get rid of them easily.
6. About The Modifiers – What’s In It For You?
Each level comes with a briefing of sorts that contains several icons, a list of effects, as well as variables, or modifiers, that help the level stand out from the others. For instance, you may be able to expect more gold drops, which is a good thing. Then again, you may also have to expect faster or stronger enemies, which isn’t exactly a good thing. These good and bad variables will be color-coded, with a good effect showing up in green text, and a bad effect in red. Sounds very cut and dry, but there are times when it wouldn’t be like what it seems.
The damage modifiers, in specific, are the ones you want to focus on the most. This could mean enemies will be resistant or invulnerable to certain magic types, so be prepared at all times and read the level briefing so you know what to look forward to (or not to look forward to).
7. Conserve Your Special Attacks
Special shots or attacks can be unlocked as you progress in the game, though the obvious caveat would be the limit to the number of times you can use them per battle/level; make sure you use them wisely! Depending on your needs at a specific time, you may or may not want to use them, but in any case, you should be working toward upgrading them. Remember that your enemies get tougher as you progress, so you have to be keeping up with them as well.
8. Go For The Mastery Upgrades
Except for Fire, all of the elemental trees will have a Mastery upgrade at the end of them. You’ll be able to recognize them as they have sword-like icons that are surrounded by an illustration of their corresponding element. You want to collect those Mastery upgrades, as they would increase the damage the specific type of magic would be able to deal out. But that’s not all, as the damage will also be multiplied by the number of points you allocated toward Spell Damage. If you want to become significantly more powerful, then you definitely want to go for a Mastery upgrade or two, or better yet, grab them all if you can.
