Steven Universe: Tap Together is an all-new idle game set in the popular Cartoon Network series. Corrupted gems have started appearing out of nowhere, and Steven needs your help to contain them! Our Steven Universe: Tap Together cheats and tips will show you how to build the ultimate team for the best gem-poofing action!
Steven Universe: Tap Together, like most idle games, is pretty easy to understand, so don’t be afraid to jump into the action. Let’s get started with our Steven Universe: Tap Together cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
Come back for Boss Battles!
Your Crystal Gem warriors will fight for you automatically when you have the game close, earning experience as they go. However, they will not engage boss battles on their own – you will need to come back and start them manually. This is good anyways because you need to be ready to take down the boss’ projectiles and attacks!
Play actively for more experience!
While this is a by the numbers idle, Steven Universe: Tap Together does add some incentive for players to actively play the game. Aside from the aforementioned boss attacks, regular enemies will sometimes have prompts over them, like a red circle or a red dashed line.
Holding the circles or swiping through the dashed lines will deal heavy damage to the corrupted gem, usually destroying them instantly. Playing actively will net you more experience in the long run, so don’t be afraid to take on the corrupted gems yourself!
Use skills at the right time!
Each hero has an active skill that can be used to turn the tables! Some skills are pretty self-explanatory, like Steven’s “The Power to Heal”, but others aren’t quite as transparent. Be sure to read your favorite heroes’ profiles to see exactly what their skills do, as using them at the right moment can win you the battle!
Also, take note that some skills target differently than others. Some skills affect the whole party, just enemies, or sometimes only adjacent heroes. This means that positioning will be important for some heroes, so be mindful of where you put them.
Get your free case!
In order to earn new hero fragments, you will need open cases. The cheapest case costs 75 coins, and it has a chance to have 1-star fragments in it. The better the case, the better the fragments, so start saving up now! The most expensive case – the Luxury Case – costs 350 coins, and you earn coins VERY slowly in this game.
That’s why it’s very important that you collect your free cases as often as possible. For a while the free cases are going to be your only source of getting new hero fragments. A free case is available to open every five hours, so don’t forget!
Complete a hero’s set!
Straight levels not cutting it? Boost your heroes’ power with gear! You can find gear in cases just like hero fragments, and each hero has a specific set they must complete. If you manage to fill out a hero’s entire set, they will gain a significant stat boost once the gear is built into them.
Taking too much damage? Bring a healer!
Boss battles are, simply put, wars of attrition. You will need to outpower the boss to win, and if you find yourself losing your heroes too quickly, try bringing a hero with a healing skill.
Even though Steven is a 1-star hero, he can fit in any team composition thanks to his healing skill that never becomes useless. Steven is just one example though – there are many other heroes with healing abilities!
