Four Tasty Tips & Tricks to Aid Your Adventure in BattleCakes

Hi, all! I’m so excited that BattleCakes is now on Xbox! Trouble is brewing in the cake kingdom of Pasteleria as the local critters have become riled up by some mysterious force – causing chaos in the neighboring lands. It’s up to you and your friends, the adventurous Red Velvet and the magical Midnite Truffle, to get to the bottom of it.

And you know what that means… road trip! So, to get off on the right foot… er, wrapper?… Here’s four tasty tips & tricks to aid you on your adventure!

Forage for Crafting Ingredients

Don’t just admire the scenery, shake it up! As you make your way through the various biomes of BattleCakes, make sure you forage for crafting ingredients by shaking bushes, chopping plants and digging wherever you see dirt Xs on the ground.

You can combine those ingredients via Crafting NPCs to make useful items like First Aid Frosting and other boosts and restoratives. Foraging locations randomize and refresh after a good night’s sleep at the local inn, so keep on foraging!

Critters Like Crafting Ingredients Too… Sometimes

Foraging ingredients are unique to each biome, and they can also be a unique favorite of the critters who live there. If you’ve got ingredients to spare, try giving one to critters during an encounter. Find their favorite and you could increase their friendship points. But be careful, because the wrong ingredient could make them extra grumpy, even potentially giving them a power boost.

Stock up on the right ingredients and you could end an encounter extra quick.

Keep Trying Different Toppers

Cake Toppers can give your heroes a variety of bonuses, so be sure to try different combinations on your heroes and swap them out as often as needed. Some Toppers can provide a general stat boost, like to Might or Defense. Some Toppers can boost your friendship with specific critters. Some can protect you from specific critter attacks. And some are just silly or stylish.

…Did you know? Some toppers can just be stuff you find out in the world and decide to stick on your noggin. True story!

Watch out for Reflective Critters

As your journey continues into strange and magical lands, some critters have the unique ability to repel and reflect specific types of attacks back at you. Watch out for the Might, Moxie or Magic icon on their body for a clue as to which hero needs to be careful. For example, Red Velvet’s moves are based on Moxie, so if there is a reflective critter with a Moxie icon on its body try using an item or aiding an ally instead of attacking on her turn. It can save your heroes from accidentally delivering a beating to themselves!

So, there you go! Four tips & tricks to help you on your way, you intrepid hero you. Oh, and of course, don’t forget to look behind those waterfalls!

Happy adventuring!
