Puff is a arcade inspired twitch shooter that’s easy to pick up and play. You can’t actually move your puff through traditional movement controls. All you can do is jump and shoot left or right. You’re going to need some gun momentum to get around the levels, but beware! Bubbles and flowers – though relatively harmless sounding – are coming to get you, so you’ll need to blast everything in sight! The creators behind this game describe Puff as the lovechild of Flappy Bird and Downwell, so if that strikes your fancy here’s our Puff cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
1. Keep the bubbles under control!
It may not seem like it at first, but things get really spicy once you’re progressed a couple of levels. The key to victory in Puff is keeping the bubbles that come from the sides of the level under control. If you let too many bubbles roam around the level, eventually you’re going to accidentally slam right into one! They’ll spawn randomly on both sides and slowly float towards your puff. Your bullets go through walls, so try to shoot them before they come into your open space. Beware of the ones that split into smaller bubbles when destroyed!
2. Stay away from pipes!
Watch out for the pipes on the walls. When you see them start to sprinkle, get out of the way quickly! Yellow pipes will shoot out a small burst of water. While these go by fast, if you even nick them you will be instantly killed regardless of how much health you have remaining. Blue pipes will shoot out a constant stream of water, effectively creating a small barrier. Like the yellow pipe water it doesn’t last for long but will also instantly kill you. Keep an eye on these pipes and make sure not to accidentally be in the way when they go off!
3. Destroy the flowers!
Around the third level or so, these little flower buds will start spawning on top of the pipes. These guys are bad news if left alone, so try to take them out as soon as possible. Treat them like the bubbles! The basic yellow flower will constantly shoot small bullets, making it dangerous to cross. The advanced yellow flower is a bit more deadly. This one’s sporting a mean looking eye in the middle of it, and it will lob bullets upwards at you. Be careful!
4. Grab the power ups!
There are three power ups that will spawn periodically near the bottom of the screen:
- The Heart power up will completely restore your life. Great in a pinch!
- The Shield power up will create a purple shield around your puff. Anything that touches the shield will be destroyed.
- The Bomb power up will blow up the whole screen, wiping out all enemies. Awesome!
You should never “save” power ups; grab them as soon as you see them. When a power up spawn, it will only stay on screen for about seven seconds then it despawns.
