Break Them Up is a game that, as you can probably tell, is about breaking up a loving couple. There are various means at your disposal to do this, from throwing things to sending nudes. But you have to be on your toes otherwise your actions can actually bring the couple closer together.
That’s why we thought it was a good idea to write this guide. We’ve played a good chunk of Break Them Up and discovered a series of strategies that we think are going to make sure any relationship you fancy smashing is going to crumble under the weight of your blows.
Whether you’re just breaking up your first couple or you’ve destroyed loads, there’s going to be something here to help you take your devious skills to the next level. Here are the best hints, tips and cheats for Break Them Up.
You pick things up
It’s important to note that it’s not the couple in front who pick things up, it’s you. The same goes for the gates – they might go through one, but it’s the one you head through that matters. Other than the bar above their heads, you can basically ignore what the couple is doing.
Make the right choices
By which we mean make the wrong choices. It’s usually pretty obvious which things are good and which things are bad, and you should be aiming for the ones that are going to mess up the relationship. If it’s a nice thing to do, avoid it like the plague and you’ll do just fine.
Throw bad things
You should only pick up and throw bad things – garlic, poop, rotten tomatoes and so on. Picking up cash and throwing it has the opposite effect to the one you’re going for – the same is true of flowers and gifts. Only throw something if it’s gross, and if it isn’t don’t even pick it up in the first place.
Unlock the new options
When you can watch a video to unlock the new options you may as well do it. These new moves make it easier to break the couple apart completely, which gives you a better chance to make it all the way to the wedding at the end of the level.
What are the coins for?
They don’t actually seem to be for anything. There’s no shop to spend them at and no upgrades you can buy to change your stats. That means there’s not much point watching the videos to increase your stash. Just keep playing and you’ll unlock new things as you go.
