Boss Fight Tips

Having trouble with those pesky bosses? They’re not that tough if you know what you’re doing (unless you’re playing on Diabolic difficulty – good luck).

The first thing you need to know is that bosses are completely invulnerable to attack while they’re attacking you. So fight off their projectiles until you see the jewel on their head begin to glow. But be careful! That means they’re about to hit you with an extremely powerful super attack that will damage all of your characters. You can stop this attack though!

Just tap on the jewel as fast as you can and the power up field will shrink. Do it enough times and their attack will be blocked. If you’re not successful at this all of your characters will take extreme damage. Either way part of the boss will now be vulnerable. Look for the the glowing/pulsing part and tap away! Keep this pattern up till all of the bosses parts are destroyed to end the stage. Note that some bosses have more parts to destroy than others.

One last note: Are your little guys on fire/frozen/squished/etc? If you get hit with a super attack then your adorable little aliens will have a damage effect on them that does damage over time. Simply shake your iDevice to return them to normal and stop the damage.

Now that you know how to defeat the evil bosses of Orbital Bombardment, go forth and conquer.

Save Your Powerups

Did you know that you can save your powerups to use when you want? Just drag the power up to the “dock” at the top left corner of the screen and then tap on it when you want to use it. You can really increase your high scores this way if you time your powerup use correctly with your score multiplier, ESPECIALLY if you trigger your Mega Score Multiplier powerup at the right time.

Use More Than One Finger

One of the things we always notice when we watch people play OB is that they forget they have more than just one finger.  Not only are you encouraged to tap away with more than just one digit, OB was actually designed with that in mind.

Many of the projectile patterns like multiple meteors on screen at once can be much better handled when you attack them with at least two fingers, one for each meteor for instance.  This is particularly useful on the iPad where you have more room to use all your fingers.  You can actually use up to five at a time.
