Ooblets Cheats and Tips
Keep A Variety Of Crops Growing At All Times
In addition to the Ooblets themselves, crops are essential to completing the game’s most important and lucrative tasks. You’ll always need a healthy variety of produce on hand because obtaining wild Ooblets requires players to have specific crops, or dishes made from them, to challenge them to dance battles, the game’s humorous take on combat. Other tasks, such as delivering bundles of certain fruits and vegetables, can earn nice chunks of change.
That’s why you should always set aside funds to routinely purchase new seeds from the various crop stores in Badgetown and beyond. Never let your farm stay barren and inactive for long. Crops can take days to grow, and it stinks when you need a veggie to progress you haven’t grown or even planted. Create as much extra yield as you can, and you’ll cruise through objectives much faster.
Don’t Skimp On Clearing Your Farm Of Junk
It’s easy to awaken each morning and feel tempted to neglect to clear the yard once you see it full of weeds, logs, and rocks day after day. Don’t get lazy. These bothersome eyesores, specifically stones, and wood, reward nurneys and plankets, essential crafting ingredients that you’ll always need. Occasionally, breaking down these items rewards a seed, too. Look at your farm as a replenishing goldmine of foundational materials because it is, and take advantage of it as often as you can. You’ll be glad you did.
As someone who generally ignores fishing minigames, Ooblets’ version became an integral activity. For one, this isn’t even a minigame since you don’t do any manual work. You just cast your line, and you’ll automatically earn a random prize. Using various types of bait, earned by breaking down unwanted inventory items in a nearby machine, nets useful items such as fertilizer that hastens crop production, additional plankets, and other goodies.
Prioritize Inventory Upgrades, Automatic Watering Tools Early
You collect a plethora of different things in Ooblets, meaning your pockets quickly fill up. The game already has you doing a lot of back-and-forth running to grab materials, so minimize this by increasing your inventory slots as soon as possible. Purchasing backpacks or fanny packs from Kibbonbon, the local clothing shop, will accomplish this. Be sure to also upgrade Kibbonbon’s selection by spending Wishies, the game’s secondary currency earned by completing special tasks, at Badgetown’s wishing well. Doing this unlocks backpacks with even more space.
On the same note, go ahead and buy additional storage chests for your home too. The starter briefcase only has six spots, and you’ll quickly fill it with items you won’t have a use for early on. Chests are sold at Manatwee, the furniture store.
Manually watering your crops isn’t a tough task, but it does eat up precious time, especially as your farm expands. Invest in equipment that does the job for you sooner than later, such as turret-style water guns and sprinklers. You’ll have to unlock blueprints for these tools at the wishing well, then craft them using the “fabricuter” at Manatwee.
Don’t Try To Cram Everything Into One Day
Despite my tips on efficiency, Ooblets encourages players to take their time. Since the game operates on a day/night cycle, your energy gradually drains (though you can replenish by eating), and you actually need to sleep at night. Thus, it’s smart to know where to focus your efforts during your waking hours. Chipping away at everything on the to-do list helps, but I found it more effective to spend days focusing on one or two big things, such as acquiring/planting crops, assembling new equipment/buildings, or completing a campaign quest. Your attention becomes increasingly divided as more jobs arise, and it’s often better to focus on knocking out big priorities one or two at a time than slowly grinding everything on your to-do list.
