Zombidle is a new idle clicker game from Berzerk Studio, and this Android and iOS game allows you to be the best bad guy you can be, earning more skulls, destroying and burning more houses, and leaving villagers homeless. You play the role of Bob the Necromancer, who then enlists a “cohort of evil buddies to raise some proverbial and literal hell” in the kingdom of “Goodlandia.” But you won’t be doing the bulk of the work, as those monsters will wreak more havoc as you sit back and relax. You can even purchase some “subterranean” real estate with no need for paperwork whatsoever.
Usually, there isn’t much to these clicker games, but if you want to start out the right way, hire more monsters, earn more skulls, and raise more hell on Earth, we suggest you read our Zombidle strategy guide for beginners.
1. How To Tap The Right Way
When you start out in the game, you would have to do some tapping on your end, so you can destroy more houses faster and add some monsters to your roster. Want to get the most out of your tapping? It’s simple – use more than one finger. In fact, use as many fingers as possible, while making sure you aren’t tiring yourself out too much. And while we’ll get more into the boss battles later on, it’s also a good idea to use that multi-finger tapping when fighting the bosses, where you have to defeat an army of blacksmiths in just 30 seconds’ time. Destroying houses and killing bosses will earn you skulls, which are the game’s main form of currency.
2. Leave The Game Running
Want to get tons of skulls and a few diamonds while doing absolutely nothing? Zombidle lets you do that – you can leave the game on and in the background, with your device connected to the Internet, of course. You can return to the game after several minutes, or better yet, if you’re busy, after several hours. You’ll still be where you had left off while playing as Bob the Necromancer, albeit a good number of skulls richer. You can leave the game for hours and come back with millions more skulls, once you reach a certain level! This is especially great if you leave the game in the background when you’re asleep – it’s easy to wake up six to eight hours later with a truckload of skulls ready to collect!
3. Take Advantage Of The Special Deals
On occasion, you’ll see a scroll with the skulls that appear whenever you destroy a dwelling. That scroll will give you a chance to take advantage of a deal, where the Devil (or should we say, the She-Devil) will ask you to watch an ad video in order to get a temporary buff, or maybe some free diamonds. For example, the buffs may include doubling your damage for 60 seconds, or quadrupling your skull earnings for five minutes. Buffs that allow you to earn more skulls are especially worth taking advantage of – remember that skulls are your currency, and you’ll need them to buy upgrades and new monsters!
4. Monsters Get Exponentially More Expensive
You start the game out with Bob the Necromancer, just one character trying to destroy the villagers’ houses. The first monster you’d be able to buy, or should we say, a group of monsters, is the Zombie Horde, which is very cheap, but also very weak. Your monster sidekicks will become more expensive, and as we’ve observed, their price increases by multiples of ten. For example, the Blue Spectre will cost you 50,000 skulls, then the Swarm of Bats will set you back by 500,000, the Big Plague by 5 million, and the Black Lich by 50 million. That’s a whole lot of skulls, but as you probably know, it’s easy to earn skulls in this game.
5. Keep On Upgrading
It’s all well and good to buy monsters, but as we told you above, they can get really, really expensive. And since your monsters need to be up to speed in order to defeat the bosses, you’ll want to upgrade them regularly. We suggest prioritizing upgrades on your strongest monsters at the moment, as that’s going to give you a better chance to defeat the bosses faster. However, there is one monster that you shouldn’t ignore when it comes to upgrades, and that is…
6. Upgrade Bob
Yes, you guessed it right – you’re going to have to upgrade Bob the Necromancer. He may be the character you control and the character you start with, but his upgrades come relatively cheap, and he can get much better in a hurry. While you can let your monsters do all the work by leaving the game on and setting up your phone so that it doesn’t go to sleep when idle, you’ll also want to do some tapping and helping out your gang of villains. It could really help, especially when trying to destroy houses with more hit points, or defeating boss characters.
7. Grind To Defeat The Bosses
The good thing in this game, or one of the good things, is that you really don’t get punished for failing to beat the bosses. It will happen at some point in the game – your army of bad guys won’t be strong enough to beat the bosses in the 30-second boss fight. But when that happens, you’ll be taken back to the first stage of the boss level, and you’ll be able to grind for as long as you want in order to earn enough skulls to upgrade your monsters or buy new ones.
8. How To Get More Diamonds
Diamonds are the game’s premium currency, and you can use them to buy premium items (including temporary buffs and power-ups) in the in-game store, or structures to hold your skulls in “Hell.” So far, the best ways to get diamonds are to get them while playing the game – this could take excruciatingly long, but you can get free diamonds after destroying houses. You can also get diamonds through those deals with the Devil, as watching ad videos could sometimes earn you five diamonds per video.
That’s all for now, as far as our Zombidle tips and tricks are concerned. We hope you’ve enjoyed this guide and learned something that help you progress in the game!

The game is about restarting. The only way to get stronger is to get white orbs by defeating bosses and than going through the time portals. It doenst matter the cost of uprading monsters, the formulas of costs or anything. The skulls are only good for upgrading monsters in this "life". At some point you´ll have a hard time beatting levels and you´ll waste your time by insisting on it. It will take a loooooong time to upgrade your crew and things wont really go anywhere. A strong monster is only good if it kills a boss and gives you white orbs. You´ll only get stronger by restarting, so the best strategy is: whenever it gets hard, restart. If it gets real hard to defeat a boss, try and beat it, and than restart. Levels -1 through to 4 and -6->9 are a waste of time. Just re start and you´ll be that much stronger. Do it over and over, and its the only way to beat the harder levels. Get Items, and dont sell them. Focus on % of white orbs and upgrades of lower level minions, ie: cheaper. Because of the special atack, the Blue Specter is worth investing on. Try to get as many medals as possible, but dont waste your time, just re start. So, the general strategy is: beat levels till U get the maximun chests and the "better" portal, kill the hardest boss U find without wasting much time, and then start over. Also, upgrade Hell, as itll also make you stronger. Its that simple, and anything else is just to keep your mind off of what will keep you moving foward. As an extra, I only upgrade Bob to get his medals(once), and to make the "Auto Tap" skill stronger, other than that its just a waste of money and so, of course, time
