The early access version of Brotato is a fun and unique roguelite. Here are some tips for people who want to play it.
Independent arena shooter Brotato is currently in Early Access. In this game, the player controls a fighter potato on a planet from another galaxy. Players can choose from a number of Brotatos to play as, and all of them can use up to six weapons at the same time to easily kill hordes of enemies that rush at them.
Brotato can be hard, even though it looks and plays like a simple game. It has fast-paced gameplay because the player has to fight to stay alive through several intense 60-second waves in order to reach the final boss fight. New players may have trouble getting used to how hard Brotato is at first, but here are some tips and tricks for them.
Activate Manual Aim
Both Brotato and Vampire Survivors are rogue-lite top-down arena shooters like Vampire Survivors. But Brotato has a different setting from Vampire Survivors in one way. If players look at the menu, they will see that they can switch between automatic and human aim.
By default, when a player fires in Brotato, it will automatically aim. This can be helpful in some cases, but most of the time the player will miss or shoot at a faraway enemy. It might be better to turn on manual aiming so you can aim at enemies with more accuracy and direction. But this choice is totally up to the player.
All of Brotato’s maps have four sides and are in the shape of a square. As the waves get harder, it may become harder for players to stay away from the huge groups of enemies that are swarming around them. So, players are told to fly their kites in rounds so they don’t get too close.
Still, while players are rushing around the small map and trying to avoid the bullet-hell-style features, it can be easy for them to back themselves into a corner from which they can’t get out. This will lead to death, so players shouldn’t stay in corners for too long and should keep moving to increase their chances of staying alive.
Save Any Fruit
Green fruits that don’t taste good will sometimes fall from enemies or trees. These are called “Life Fruits,” and besides the Life Steal and Health Regen stats, they are one of the few ways to heal yourself in Brotato. It can be tempting to pick these up when you have full health, but players should avoid doing so because it will be a waste of resources.
If the player is hurt, these Life Fruits will be drawn to them and help heal them. The best thing to do with these Fruits is to save them for when you really need them.
Pay Attention To Characters And Starting Weapons
In Brotato, you can play as many different characters, but at the beginning, you can only choose from a few. Players can unlock new characters by beating waves and runs, but when they first start out, they have a few choices to choose from. It’s important to study each character or at least try them all out to find the one that goes best. It’s important to try out different ways to play because what works for one player might not work as well for another. The same goes for weapons. Before going on a run, players should check out each weapon and look at its strengths and flaws.
Look For Synergy In Items
In each run of Brotato, you can find a lot of random things, but some of them work better together than others. New players should carefully look at each item and look for things in the shop that will work well with what they already have. Even though it might not look like it at first, there are a lot of useful combinations that can be made by putting certain things together. Even though Snow Rider 3D looks like a simple wave survival game from the edges, it has a lot of depth, and players who read and pay attention to each item, stat, and weapon will be rewarded.
Don’t Underestimate Turrets or Landmines
If turrets or explosives are on the list of possible items, players should be sure to buy them. At the start of a wave, Turrets and Landmines will randomly appear at the blue crosses. Turrets are an extra weapon that players can use to help clear the field of fight. Landmines are also a great way to divide up an area. Players can easily lure a large group of enemies into a landmine if they are being chased by a lot of them.
There are other versions of the turret you can buy besides the basic, which is a useful weapon. For instance, a Medical Turret is a great way to keep a player’s strength up when they are in a lot of trouble.
Pay Attention To Stats
In Brotato, just like in most games like it, numbers are very important. Players need to pay attention to their stats and what they are working toward with each item update. Some statistics are easy to understand, while others are not as clear. For example, players might not know that the Dodge number gives them a chance to avoid taking damage even if they walk through a group of enemies. All weapons and things are either black, blue, purple, or red, with black being the most common and red being the most rare.
By looking at the keywords for guns and items in the shop, players can raise their stats. Each item will give the player a certain number of good stats and sometimes a negative stat to balance things out. Depending on which Brotato they choose, the player must think carefully about how they will fight. Some heroes are better at close combat, while others are better at fighting from a distance. In later waves, their stats will either hurt them or help them. No matter what, Speed is always a good stat to keep a safe distance from threats that are attacking you.
Many rogue-like games have a problem with being too hard for some people. Some players who are good at harder games look down on other players who have trouble with harder games. That is not a problem in Brotato, though. This game has challenge settings that can be changed to fit players of all skill levels.
Many new players might not know this, but the settings for Brotato let you change how hard it is, and it’s not as simple as picking between “easy,” “medium,” and “hard.” There are choices in the settings that let players change how fast enemies move, how much health they have, and how much damage they do. This lets the experience be tailored to each player’s needs. If the usual settings aren’t challenging enough, the player can max out these settings at their own risk to make the game harder.
