Voodoo Pranks is a game about delivering sweet, magical revenge to anyone who’s wronged you. You’ve got your doll, you’ve got a number of different instruments of torture – now it’s time to bring the pain.

Except it can sometimes be a bit tricky to know what to do. No one ever said that revenge was going to be easy, after all. That’s why we’ve written this guide – it’s packed full of the best hints, tips and tricks for Voodoo Pranks that we’ve discovered during our time with the game.

Whether you’re new to jabbing dolls with pins or you’ve been doing it long enough to get calluses, we reckon you’re going to discover something here that’s going to help you out. So here are the five best hints, tips and cheats for Voodoo Pranks.

Tap to select, then move the object

When you’re cursing someone, you need to select the object you want to use from the list on the right of the screen. It’ll then pop up along the bottom. Pick it up there and swipe it on the doll to deal out damage. Different objects have different requirements – you need to let go of pins for example – so experiment and find out how everything works.

Unlock new torture methods

Whenever you get the chance to unlock a new method of delivering pain to your victim, you should take it. It makes the game more interesting and – in a sick sort of a way – a lot funnier. The more tools of the trade you have, the more entertainment you’re going to suck out of Voodoo Pranks.

Vibration means pain

When you’re poking the doll, you’ll feel a vibration when you’ve successfully hurt your victim. This is a good way of figuring out if what you’re doing is working. The rule of thumb is that if there’s no vibration, then you’re not doing any damage, so you’re wasting your time.

Play the bonus levels

The bonus levels don’t give you much in terms of rewards, but they are fun and pretty cathartic. Some of them even involve helping people, which is a nice change of pace from dropping toilets and cupboards on people’s heads. Give them a go, you’re almost certainly going to enjoy them.

Hurt them fast

The faster you hurt your victim, the more likely you are to kill them before they get to where they’re going. Sure, it’s fun to take your time every now and then, but for the most part you want to start stabbing, poisoning or generally upsetting them as soon as you can. Here, revenge is a dish best served steaming hot.
