Press Inc is a brand new mobile game where you have to keep on pressing and destroying all sorts of items, only to make more money and press more. That sounds really fun, so we’re here to help with some Press Inc cheats and tips in a complete strategy guide.
The truth is that there’s little that can be shared or done strategically in the game. Things are pretty much straightforward: you press, you destroy, you make money. You upgrade, you press some more, you make more. You don’t really need a degree in order to get the job done, it’s simple manual labor.
But if you want to be 100% sure that you don’t miss an opportunity in the game and that at least you handle upgrades right, read on for some Press Inc tips and tricks below!
Press upgrades are the most important
You have two main things you can spend your money on: Press Upgrades and Product Upgrades. Out of these two, I think that the press upgrades are more important especially early on in the game.
The Press is very ineffective early on and therefore, you should focus on upgrading it more than the products after starting the game. Some press upgrades are better than the others and you should focus on them in order to maximize revenue, as this is your ultimate goal.
Therefore, I recommend focusing on upgrading the production, press speed and press size first in order to have the press constantly destroy many products on the line.
The band speed upgrade is not as important as you might think because if the products move too fast, the press won’t be able to destroy them. Instead, build a large press that moves fast and have a ton of products on the line and you’ll do just fine!
How to handle product upgrades
Of course, you need to upgrade the products and unlock new ones in order to have the money required for all the Press upgrades.
The golden rule of thumb here is that the more expensive products are always the best ones to unlock and upgrade as the revenue they generate is better.
I would always start spending money on upgrading products from the right-most product to the left. Also, I would go as far as saying that upgrading your products over level 50 is overkill. Over 100 is definitely not worth it until you get really far in the game and you have a lot of money.
For example, I would only upgrade the first product (the ice cream) to over 100 after after having unlocked and upgraded a few times the 8th product. But by then, the amount of money generated by the ice cream will be minimal anyway
Grab the bonuses and other rewards
Your press will level up every now and then, after destroying a set amount of items – and that’s when you can grab a nice rewards for free.
You can also earn a Bonus income every now and then – keep an eye on the top right side of the screen and tap the button before it vanishes.
Now, the interesting part is that you can double the amount received from the Bonus or Level Up by watching a video ad. I recommend you do that because – at least in my case – even if I choose not to watch an ad, the game throws at me one immediately after getting my bonus.
So if I have to watch the ad no matter what, then why not put it to good use? So watch the ads before and at least earn double income from doing so.
Watch ads for boosters
Apart from the upgrades, there is also a third category in the game: Boosters. These can be unlocked by watching video ads and they last for just 1, 3 or 4 minutes.
Two of these boosters are pretty much useless in my opinion (the Press Speed boost and the Level Up Faster one), but the x2 Revenue is really good, even though it only lasts for 1 minute. But when you feel like boosting your income in Press Inc a little bit, watch that ad and enjoy it while it lasts.
And this is everything that we have for you in terms of Press Inc tips and tricks. There’s really not much to do than to tap and then tap some more, so get started!
