Bucket Crusher is a game about using a mechanical contraption to smash up a wall. You’ll collect the bricks as you go, turning them into cold, hard cash and then spending those earnings on making your machinery even more powerful. It’s a simple premise, but there are ways to make sure you’re getting the most out of the experience.
And that’s why we decided to write this guide. We’re going to break down the upgrade system so you’re in the best position to succeed on each level, as well as sharing some of the strategies we’ve picked up during our time playing Bucket Crusher. Use these suggestions and you’re going to be crushing buckets left, right and center.
It doesn’t matter if you’re about to mash up your first pile of bricks or you’ve already knocked down a few – there’s going to be something here that will help you out. So let’s get on with it, shall we? Here are the best hints, tips and cheats for Bucket Crusher.
Fuel up first
The first thing you should do on every level is concentrate on upgrading your fuel tank. The more fuel you have, the longer you can smash for. Give an upgrade or two to length, power and size, but spend the rest of the cash you have on increasing your fuel until you hit the max upgrade.
Next go length
Next you’re going to have to work on the length. You’re going to need to max out the length upgrade to finish the level and move on to the next challenge. The length upgrades are the most expensive, so it might take a while, but you’re better off working towards them now and occasionally adding to the other upgrades along the way.
Grind your power
Towards the end of the level, you’ll want to spend on your power and size upgrades – once you’ve maxed out your length. It can be a bit grindy, but you’re going to need that power to smash all the blocks before your fuel runs out. Remember your cash moves over to the next level as well, so think about taking a couple of runs where you nearly smash everything to fill up your coffers.
Scoop and score
Towards the end of your run, when you’re about to run out of fuel, take a moment to scoop all of the bricks along the bottom of the screen towards your bucket. If they’re still out when your fuel runs out, you’re not going to earn any cash from them, so it’s well worth taking some time to clean up what you’ve collected to get as much money as you can.
Check the upgrades
In the later levels you’ll get extra upgrades that can come in really handy. They’re expensive, but you can use the money you take over to the next level to buy some. They’ll give you extra cash, more fuel and other boosts. Spend your cash wisely to make sure you’re becoming as powerful as you can.
