ULTRA Tips and Tricks
Hudson Entertainment has released a
set of tips and tricks for their recently released PSN game, Bomberman Ultra.
The tips are meant to help beginner players as they start out with the game, as
well as a few tips for more experienced players. Read the tips and tricks below:
Customize your Character: Make
your Bomberman unique by picking up any one of 50 unique costumes. For a
really wild look you can mix and match costumes.
Know your Power-ups: There are
over 16 power-ups (and Power-Downs) in Bomberman ULTRA, and it’s good to know
what each does from speed up to bomb kick.
Avoid Power-downs: Make sure to
avoid power-downs such as Slowdown, or Fire-Down. It is easy to just grab
everything you see so be careful. On the other hand you can sometimes force
your opponent to pick them up.
Trap your Opponents: Learn how to
trap you opponents, either by luring them into a dead end or between 2 bombs
(with the Bomb-Up power-up). Practice this technique in offline mode and
you’ll be laying them to waste on online mode.
Patience: In the beginning, take
you time and methodically blow up blocks. Don’t rush a path straight to your
opponent. Open up the area and gather power-ups
Customize your View: Press R3 to
change your viewing angle.
Avoid Blowing Yourself Up: It
sounds stupid but many players end up blowing themselves up. Always be
conscious of where you lay your bombs and what sort of power-ups you have. If
you have Fire-Up(s) make sure you know who big your blast is going to be.
Super Revenge: With the Super
Revenge Mode on players who have died can come back to life by hitting the
players from the sidelines. If this option is on make sure to take advantage
Chain Reaction: Line up multiple
bombs so when the first one explodes, nearby bombs also explode. This can take
out unsuspecting enemies from far away!
Share the Sickness: Got skulls and
handoffs turned on? Did one of the skulls get you sick? Well, by all means go
ahead and pass that sickness onto another player! Sharing is caring (and it
weakens the competition)!
Punch Out: We’ve all been trapped
by bombs at one point or another. The bomb punch power-up isn’t just for
offense; it’s actually a great defensive tool, too! If you’re trapped, just
punch your way out of a jam.
Around the World: Got the glove
and want to reach out and touch someone? Pick up a bomb and toss it off the
edge of the arena. It will appear on the other side and scare the bejeebus
(and maybe even frag) someone on the other side!
Learn from Others: There are lots
of amazingly talented Bomberman players out there. Learn from them as they
frag you endlessly. Better yet, make friends and ask them for advice!
