We have talked about Fire Hose Frenzy in our review and now it’s time to get our boots on and prepare for the real action with some tips and tricks for the game, advice that will help you get the most of each stage and hopefully bag three star rewards on all firefighting missions. So let’s have a look at these LEGO City Fire Hose Frenzy tips and tricks to make our game better!
1. Play each stage twice (at least)
Don’t let the fact that you won’t get three stars from your first go upset you. It’s only natural, because you don’t know the level. So during your first go make sure you learn all the basics of the stage and how things work, thinking already how to optimize everything for your next go. The second time, if you are good, you should be able to get 3 stars in most stages!
2. Don’t use the time bonus from start
Each stage will give you several Lego pieces (yellow or blue) that will reduce the time in your game by a few seconds. The idea here is to use them only after several seconds have passed, making sure that none of these extremely useful power-ups go to waste.
3. Don’t destroy all boxes
Wooden boxes and planks can be destroyed in each stage, but even though some must be destroyed in order to reach a fire, many are there just to trick you into spending more time. So make sure that you double check and there really isn’t another way around to the fire before starting to waste time on a plank or box.
4. Learn to control the water
In many early stages I spent way too much time because I wasn’t used with the controls: you lift the ladder up and down on the left side and you control the angle of the water by sliding your finger up and down on the right side of the screen. And that’s it, no left or right movements (unless you are in a helicopter), and you will soon see how fast you can put out those fires!
5. Be patient
This could be the best advice here. Try to stay calm and never lose focus even though some of the stages are almost enraging and seem impossible to complete on three stars. You can do it, you will see, but only with a clear mind and after a few plays. So be patient, there’s no rush to get anywhere, anyway!
