Ultimate Sackboy Cheats
PRIORITISE UPGRADING THE CHEAPEST ITEMS FIRST
As you progress through the tiers in Ultimate Sackboy, you will notice the scores you have to beat will increase. That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to play better. In fact, you will reach a point where that’s near impossible. So, you will need to upgrade your customisation options by spending coins to increase the number of points each bubble is worth. Depending on the level of that item, it will provide a different boost to your overall XP. The higher your XP, the higher the points you earn from every bubble collected.
The trick here is to prioritise buying all the cheaper upgrades first. While it might be tempting to spend 1000 coins on a level six upgrade to get +10 XP at once, you can spend fewer coins upgrading an item from level one to five and get more XP overall. So whenever you have a good number of coins, scan through your item collection and focus on levelling up everything to level five before you consider upgrading beyond that. It’s a far more efficient use of your coins.
LEARN THE RNG PATTERNS
After playing Ultimate Sackboy for a while, you will start to notice the randomly generated levels don’t vary all that much. While this can get a little dull, it can also work to your advantage. Once you know where the game likes to hide some of the higher-value orbs, you will recognise them immediately and can adjust your path to ensure you grab them, boosting your score on that run and increasing your chances of hitting the highest score.
PRIORITISE GRABBING POWER-UPS OVER BUBBLES (MOST OF THE TIME)
The third tip in our beginner’s guide to Ultimate Sackboy will sometimes come down to a judgement call but, generally speaking, it’s worth grabbing a power-up in favour of a few orbs. The Magnet, in particular, will suck up all the bubbles you run past for a short time, which can massively increase your score.
The Invincibility power-up, meanwhile, will allow you to smash through structures, netting blue bubbles in the process. Depending on the circumstance, that can make it less useful. So it’s always worth quickly scanning the road ahead before taking either power-up and considering whether it’s worth missing a few bubbles to pick up.
LOOK AHEAD AND PLAN
For the most part, Ultimate Sackboy plays out at a fairly casual pace. Again, this doesn’t always make it the most exciting runner, but it does have its benefits. Since you don’t have to worry about frantically jumping and sliding to survive, you can look ahead of the level and plan your moves out. For example, if you recognise a setup that will hide a few purple bubbles, you can start moving in that direction. Alternatively, you might see a power-up on the horizon and can spend the approach calculating if it’s worth picking up.
