I’ve been playing Bloons Adventure Time Tower Defense for close to a week now and while I’m enjoying the game, there are some things that I’m finding a bit unbalanced.
In my previous post, talking about what my first thoughts on the game were, I mentioned how levelling up at first seemed daunting. This is because the player relies on levelling up their characters or giving them allies/trinkets. While this seems like it would be much more manageable if you were connected to the internet as you are often given the option to double your rewards by watching ads. I did find as soon as I got a few characters unlocked my gaming experience became so much easier.
Characters such as Warrior Princess Bubble Gum and Captain Cassie made all forms of Bloons shred to pieces, but I still had difficulty dealing with MOABs.
At first, I tried levelling Finn up to use MOAB Ripper and Max to use Weak Spots but MOABs still kept getting away from me. I then tried to use Tie’em Up which is a Jake ability which did wonders, though has a moderate cooldown.
For easier levels with MOABs, this team was fine if you included the powerup Hugsplosion. Since coins weren’t easy to come by at first, buying a 300 coin powerup to beat a level that hardly gave you any seemed steep.
I’m usually a gamer who likes to save his in-game currency for something that’s going to be a bit more significant on my gameplay.
When I opened up a Wish Orb which revealed Abracadaniel I didn’t realize how much my world was about to change. I equipped him to my Ice King and tried him out on a silver medal map and let me tell you, that map was an absolute breeze!
Abracadaniel, while a bit pricy is a must-have if you are a newer player who is trying to jump ahead and complete silver medal maps.
Damage Type: Normal
Attack Speed: 0.28
ABRACADANIEL’S PROS & CONS
Pros: Can instantly destroy Bloons
Cons: Very slow attack speed
Improved Spellcasting Time
Mother of All Butterflies
Transforms MOABs into red Bloons
In short, although Abracadaniel is fairly pricy, his powerups are well worth the investment.
Truthfully, I stopped powering up Finn, Max and Jake as their MOAB specific powerups soon felt archaic and useless and put Abracadaniel closer to the end of my “kill box.”
He’s especially useful if the map features a roundabout area, since he may not be able to get a MOAB (or small Bloon) on its first time around. This is especially true if there are 5 or more MOABs, so, unfortunately, Abracadaniel doesn’t seem to be any use for late-game content.
At that point, it would be much more useful to focus on characters such as Sai and power everyone up so you can take on those tanky MOABs found in the gold medal stages.
WHAT ARE MY FINAL THOUGHTS ON ABRACADANIEL
Though I don’t see Abracadaniel having much use in late-game content, I do feel like he’s a great addition to someone who is playing around level 10 or so.
Abracadaniel can make sure that you complete that silver medal map while you’re on your way to work and make sure you’re not wasting any of your resources.
There’s nothing worse than having to redo a map because of one mistake, making characters like Abracadaniel or even the Banana Guards a reliable catch for Bloons that are trying to escape.
While Abracadaniel’s Mother of All Butterflies move seems pretty pricy, it’s actually much cheaper than powering up your characters to the level you need them to be to defeat MOABs. This makes him a great addition to your daily reward quests (many requiring you to do silver level content and use minimal characters.
So, I’m curious, how many of you have Abracadaniel unlocked? What level are you? Has he been a good addition to your team or do you have a better strategy? Let me know in the comments below!
