The team which scores the most wins the game. Or if you are playing without a team, the player who scores the most wins the game.
- Capture the flag- This must be played as a team. Two flags will be present in opposite ends of the map. Team A should defend their flag as well as go to the Team B’s end, grab their flag and hoist it back to their end i.e TeamA’s end. Hence a point will be scored by Team A. This makes the game more exciting between the two ends. Here winning doesn’t matter the number of deaths but the number of times the flag is brought from one end to another.

By playing online you can gain some points and increase your XP. Using those points you can buy extra items from the store ex: extra grenade, boost health, boost jetpack, accuracy, laser sight, faster reload, melee etc
- If you have a low-level gun and an enemy comes to attack, crouch and aim to hit. This crouching will help you to defend yourself i.e the enemy will not be able to hit you straight away. Even you can defend from a grenade by doing so.
- If you are holding a gun and you are short of life don’t rush to attack, instead crouch and wait for few seconds until the life boosts at least half of it. Same holds with the jetpack.
- If you think you cant stand in front of your enemy for longer throw a grenade this might help you to gain a point even if you die.
- For the faster movement use melee(hand).
Tips with respect to weapons
- Sniper– This is the best weapon for a long-range shooting. It has 7X zoom and kills in one strike. So firstly settle somewhere preferably on the top and wait for your enemies. As soon as you see the enemy hit a headshot.
- Bazooka– This causes a massive area destruction.It has 6X zoom so settle in a place and aim. It takes more time to reload. If you miss 3 shots then you will be in trouble so keep a backup gun as well.
- Shotgun-This weapon shoots 4 bullets at a time but has a small range, so keep a long ranged weapon as a backup. Don’t go to hit the enemy if he is far from you. You should be fast while using this gun with good instincts. Strike as soon as the enemy comes near you in one shot.
- Guard- No bullets can pass through a guard. Face the guard towards the attacker and fire. A bazooka can be a problem for a guard but crouching will help you with a little life.
- Proxy mine-Plant this mine in the spawning area or if there is a place where you feel the enemy will be quick. Once the enemy comes close to this mine, it will activate and explode.
- Magnum– Double Magnum power is almost equal to a shotgun. Two bullets are enough to kill the enemy.
- Uzi- Double the Uzi and you can just go on killing the enemies one by one provided you have some tricks to do so.

Multiplayer Games Played on the Same device
1. Chain Reaction[appbox googleplay com.BuddyMattEnt.ChainReaction] A chain reaction is a combinatorial game developed by Buddy- Matt for Android devices. It is a strategy game for 2-8 players. The main objective of this game is to eliminate all the opponents’ orbs and take over the board. It is an unpredictable game wherein you will not be able to predict which teams going to win.
How and when does the Chain Reaction form?
- The commonly used board is of a 9X6 matrix.
- The chain reaction works on something called critical mass. This critical mass is equal to a number of orthogonally adjacent cells.
- The cells are initially empty. Players will be distinguished according to the color they select. They take it in turns to place the orb.
- A player(red) can place an orb anywhere in the cell or on the orbs containing one or more red orbs, except on the place where another(green) orb is already placed.
- The critical mass at the corner is 2, edges are 3 and 4 for the rest of the cell.
- Once the orb reaches critical mass, it explodes sideways. i.e if the red reaches the critical mass and explodes and it has a green orb next to it, the green orb changes to red. And if the green has 3 orbs and red orb explodes, the red orb replaces the green orb resulting in another reaction.
- Similarly, the reaction goes on till there is a possibility of exploding the (red)orbs. Same holds for rest of the colors.
- You cannot predict which team is going to win in the middle of the game. It all depends on how you form the orb.
Never give your opponent the chance to place an orb at the corner. Since the orb at the corner has less critical mass.

- This game is played by 2-6 players. Each player is given 4 tokens and a die to roll. Each move is played based on number decided by casting a six-sided die.
- A six needs to be rolled in order to initiate the tokens move. Same holds with the other tokens. Once the token comes out of the home, another chance is given to roll the die.
- The competition factor of the game is upped by a fact that if you place your token on the place where already a opponents token is present, the opponent goes back to home and should restart with it by casting a six on the die.
- There will be four stars on the entire board. If you place your token on that star you will be safe.
- Continuously getting three times ‘six’ on the die will lead you to nothing i.e you will not be allowed to move any of your tokens.
- Once you reach the colored path you will be safe and near to the finish line. If one token goes inside the finish line another chance is given to roll the die.
- The person who makes all the tokens enter the finish line will be the winner of the game.
