Just wanted to drop by with some information on clearing Icebergs in the Pilot Season event.
ADDICTS QUICK explanation
Please be aware you need 1 Ice Pick to play the game!!!
You need to hit a little area of the iceberg, so to hit multiple Icebergs with one shot, look to target ones that are on top of each other.
ADDICTS long winded explanation
With the new event we are seeing the return of an old style mini-game.
In order to be able to participate you’ll need to collect an Ice Pick, you’ll get them here:
Ice Pick (Common) – Get from Rambo Lois Ho On A Rampage, Steel Throne Dragon Posture Aggresively, Pusher Peter Protect His Investment, Buy From Store
Once you have an Ice Pick just tap on the Ive Pick Icon in the bottom right of your screen.
After tapping on this, the mini game will appear. You will see on the top of the screen the Rewards you can win from Icebergs. The amount of Ice Picks you have available in the Lower Left. The PICK button in the Lower Right. (If you’ve no Ice Pickss it will show Need More) Then in the center, you will see the circle that is essentially your target that you will use to get the Icebergs. You can also see the target is orange, this is because it’s not on the target area.
This is really an “Aim n Shoot” kind of set up. You wait while the Icebergs float around, then move the circle to target them. It should turn green when you on a targetable area on any of any Icebergs. However I am playing by targeting the small area that I’ve circled the target area on the image below. Please note this is the target area I’m using, you can target outwith this, moving the circle around the Iceberg you’ll see any tsrgettable area when the circle goes green, but I’m using my method to hit multiple icebergs each time.
Please try to ensure the small target circle inside the larger circle is on the target area. I know it’s a small area so to be sure you’re understanding this I’ve outlined the area in red below, inside the red area is where you want to target.
As you can see it’s the little circle within your larger circular target that targets best and only on the area outlined above. As you can see below the little circle is now on an iceberg but it’s still not turned green as it is not within a target area. (Be aware if it is green when your are not on a target area it is because it’s targeting an iceberg below the one you think it’s on).
Below is what you’re looking for to hit the target. Note I’m targeting the tiny area I’ve previously highlighted, and this go would clear you at least 1 Iceberg. To do this put your finger on the Target in the middle of the screen and drag it around to where the Iceberg that you want to get.
As you see above it will turn green once you are on this. But the secret of this mini-game is to try target more than 1 Iceberg, now TinyCo have said you can only hit 1 but this is wrong, you can hit multiple icebergs but it’s not as easy as in previous games of this type. But it is possible, I’ve hit 4 icebergs with 1 Ice Pick, how, well best advice I can offer you is try my targeting method, be patient and wait until there’s a few icebergs that are almost on top of each other so you can hit the target area on the top visible one but also hit those underneath the iceberg you’ve targeted. This is going to need a mix of patience, targeting and luck. But remember you’ve a better chance of clearing more if they are really on top of one another. I’ve hit 4 Icebergs a few times now using my technique.
The rewards you get will vary on how many Icebergs you destroy at a time.
Per Iceerg Destroyed:
1 Dragon Breath or 2 Dragon Breat (Chance)
1 Concealer (Chance)
