Even if you’ve already played Comics Bob, we reckon there’s going to be something here that’ll help out – and the tips are going to be indispensable for new players too. So here are the top five hints, tips and cheats for Comics Bob.
Remember what went wrong
You’re going to make mistakes in Comics Bob, such is the way of things. But it’s important to remember where you went wrong, because sometimes you’re going to have to solve a few puzzles again before you get back to the place you failed. Remember the choice you made and you’ll be perfectly placed to solve the puzzle the next time round.
Save when you can
When you make a mistake, the game gives you the chance to watch a video to try the choice again. It’s always worth doing this on the last part of a level, since you’re going to have to go back and play through everything if you don’t. If you make a mistake earlier in the level, then the choice is yours – although we’d recommend against doing it in the first challenge, since it’ll take as long to watch a video as start the level over.
Make the obvious choice
When you can’t figure out what to do, it’s worth making the choice that looks the most obvious. Half of the time this is going to work. Bear in mind that you’ve essentially got a 50/50 chance on every challenge, so at least if you get something wrong you’re definitely going to know what to choose next time.
Think about the story
Sometimes you can get a clue about the choice you need to make from what’s happened in the story. Think about the things that have recently occurred and how they might fit into your decision. Comics Bob is, essentially, a game about remembering things. The more you can remember, the better you’re going to do.
Sometimes, you just have to guess
In the end, sometimes you’re just going to have to pick one of the choices at random. It can be pretty frustrating, but at least the failure animations are pretty funny. When you’ve exhausted your thought process, it’s best just to poke one of the choices and hope for the best. You never know, you might get it right.
