In our previous article, Hustle Caste Tips and Tricks Part I, we went over several tips and tricks to boost your performance, and to help you stay at the top of your game in Hustle Castle. However, since the game is a bit more complex than what initially meets the eye, we couldn’t feature every single pointer in one article.
That being said, there are several other tips to further improve your odds of success in Studio Nord’s latest game.
There’s quite a bit to know about the game if you truly wish to master it. There are some features and game modes that are complex enough to require a guide at all times. The portal battles, for example, which are hands-down the best ways to farm for Gems without using real money, require complex calculations in order to perceive the best return on your investment. Since you probably won’t want to perform said calculations yourself, you’ll need a guide. With BlueStacks, our Android gaming platform, you can easily play your favorite Android games on your PC, with the comfort and versatility of mouse and keyboard controls.
Through BlueStacks, you can easily play all your Android games, and simply minimize the program for when you need to pull up a guide in your browser, without the need to close the game, like you would need to do if you were on your phone. By playing on this platform, you will have a much better time with your favorite games since you will not be struggling with clunky controls and a small screen.
Play With Your Friends
Hustle Castle has a friend system that allows you to send and receive gifts to and from your Facebook friends that also play the game. By linking your Facebook account to the game, and adding friends who have also linked their accounts to their game, you may exchange awesome gifts amongst yourselves. After 10 gifts have been sent, you will receive an awesome prize.
Find Balance in Your Party
Besides the importance of equipment and types of fighters that we mentioned in our previous article, there are other factors you must consider when creating your squad. If you’re familiar, with character roles in other popular MMOs, you might know that those who receive the brunt of the enemy’s blows are often called “Tanks.” Meanwhile, those who are charged with delivering the hurt to the opposing forces are called “DPS,” which is short for damage-per-second. Those who support their members by providing beneficial “buffs” and healing are the aptly-named “Healers.”
In Hustle Castle, you must find balance in your group, by incorporating a combination of these three roles. In this sense, if you’re still limited to a group of 3, you could consider using a Tank and two DPS. This combination will get you through the first and second zones by essentially brute-forcing your way through the enemy forces. However, when the going gets tough, you may need to rethink your strategy.
By replacing a DPS with a Healer, your Tank will become beefier and will be able to stay alive for longer without the need to add a second Tank. Using two Tanks is not usually recommended; though they can take much more punishment than what a single tank could, some of the toughest bosses will outright ignore them and go straight for the DPS, rendering your Tanks moot. What you’ll want to do is to either replace your DPS for a party of all Tanks for these battles, in particular, since your DPS will always die in two or three hits and stop contributing to the fight afterward.
Save Your Gems
In our previous article, we went over the importance of gathering your free gems by watching advertisement videos and opening the chests you receive for winning battles. On more than one occasion, you might feel tempted to use these gems to accelerate constructions early on. However, we urge you to hold on to your gems for the advanced stages of the game, where constructions and other projects can take a long time to complete. In these cases, the gems you’ve been saving up will be of the utmost importance.
Furthermore, there is a method to farm for gems in portal battles, by using gems to refill your food, allowing you to fight more within a period of time, and also by using gems to multiply the amount of souls received in these battles, which can be then traded in for a sizeable return on your investments. The actual math of this method is quite complex, so we won’t be getting into it on this occasion. All you need to know is that gems are useful for many purposes, and it will be worth your time to save them up as much as you can.
Optimize Your Production
Resources early in the game are fairly easy to come by; you can receive much more than what you need simply by completing missions and having your dwellers work in your production rooms. However, as you advance, you will find that your reserves of gold and food will be constantly on the low, as costs increase as you progress through the game and upgrade your throne room. In this sense, you will always need to find methods to optimize your resource production.
Once you reach throne level 3, you will be able to construct a second treasury and dining hall, allowing you to merge these new rooms with your pre-existing ones. Merged rooms function in the same manner as individual ones, but they can fit additional workers, and give a bonus to production for it. However, upgrading a merged room is usually much more expensive since you will be paying for two upgrades, instead of one. Nevertheless, it’s worth the investment to keep merged production rooms as long as you have competent dwellers occupying them.
With the tips in this and our previous articles, you are now fully equipped to take on the Abyss Lord and rescue your beloved Princess Olivia. The game will not always be as forgiving as it is in its early levels. However, if you follow the information we have provided, so far, you shouldn’t have any major issues progressing through Hustle Castle.
