Chia Bomber: Bomb With the Best
A few weeks ago, the NeoPetís Gameshow Better
Than You decided to run the competition on the fantastic game Chia
Bomber. I saw that there were only 1000 or so people that had beaten
the score and realised that there was plenty of opportunity for me to get a
medal and a rare item. I completed the game with a score high enough to break
the record and received my prize. Two days later when I checked, the competition
still hadnít been completed. It was then that I realised that Chia Bomber was
a game many players many players were not familiar with, so I decided to write
an article helping people to get better at this underrated game.
Starting the game:
The start of a game can almost determine the outcome, and a good start can help
get that point total up where it should be. After a but of study I found that
most of the enemies continued along the path until they hit the bottom of the
screen where they go off in their own directions. I thought there must be a
way to use this to my advantage, and there was. My opening strategy is to go
up one row, then across and drop a mine in the path of the first five enemies
(as shown in the illustration below). In the first couple of levels, if everything
goes right, this strategy can guarantee a quick win which will get you bonus
points for time. If an enemy changes path before it hits the mine, donít worry,
the abandoned mine can be used equally well later in the game.
There are certain ways of defeating an enemy that are better than others. For
example, never shoot at an enemy when they are facing you, that is the easiest
way to get hit and ruin your chances for a successful game. Always sneak up
on an enemy from behind, or ambush it from the side. Both these options have
much more chance of you leaving the encounter alive, which leaves more opportunity
for you to attack the other enemies. If you are being followed by an enemy,
which does happen, then try to use an abandoned mine to your advantage. Simply
lure your stalker over to the mine, then walk over it. Since it is your mine
you will be safe, but if the stalker follows you then they will be destroyed.
Chia Bomber tips:
Some enemies are stronger than others require more shots to be eliminated. Anything
other than green has more than one hit point. Remember this when attacking,
as you may shoot them from behind, then they may turn around and hit you. You
would have to start the round again just because you didnít take a little common
Never let yourself be surrounded by enemies. If more than two enemies are close
to you, get out of there and find a safer spot.
And as a final tip, I will turn to the words of James Bond, "always have an
I hope this article has helped you all become better Chia Bomber players, and
the high score table may become a little bit harder to get on.
