Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise – hints and tips
Naughty Bear, don’t you just love ripping the stuffing out of those self-righteous teddies? Not sure how to get your score up, or can’t seem to get into that certain Temple? Best read on I think.
Go for the jugular
Find and eliminate your main target as fast and as efficiently as you can. In some levels you have a rival to your psychopathic skills and in some you have to injure the main target to get them to the place they’re supposed to be, but get the main one out-of-the-way first and in the right manner so you can then concentrate on racking up that huge scare score with the rest of them.
Cover up for goodness sake
Every level has a good amount of woodland available for you. Use it wisely and often. Cover is your friend and stops you getting spotted. You can use the cover and light ‘Boo’ tactic to draw bears to you, ripe for costume stealing.
Let’s play dress-up
The aforementioned costume stealing is a good thing. it fools the other bears into thinking you’re their friend and stops you getting spotted and attacked. Use this to your advantage and set some bear traps to capture some bears and lure others to them. Once trapped you can perform ‘Object Kills’ on them, and their helpers for extra points.
You’re naughty, be untidy
Odd as it sounds, you can rack up more points from a single kill if you leave them out in the open. Other bears will stumble across the corpse and you’ll get a score bonus. They’ll also become more scared which may help later.
Destroy it all
Money makes the world go round, in this case its Naughty coins and everything drops them. Most things on each level are destroyable and they all drop Naughty coins. Statues, boxes, vases, picture frames and not forgetting the fluffrogs and groups of fluffbirds.
Listen up y’all, this is sabotage
That’s right, sabotage everything you can. Phones, cars, boats and barbecues. Some helpful do-gooder will come along and try to fix it, then you can perform an Object Kill on them that will not only stop them possibly getting reinforcements, but will also help you rack up a very decent score.
Find the Golden Key
You may have noticed the Aztec-style temples on each level. Each one has a golden key to open the door, but beware, once you pick the key up, you only have a certain amount of time to sprint to the doorway with it and it replaces your current weapon. My tip, don’t be wearing any heavy disguises, like the riot gear, as it will remove your ability to sprint. Make sure your sprint bar is full before you pick it up and if possible, run the path beforehand so you know the route. Each temple has a goodie waiting for you inside, so a little planning goes a long way. Also, don’t forget to re-arm yourself afterwards.
Suicide is painless
Ok, the one you probably want to know, just how do you scare the bears enough to explode? Well, the simple answer is, it’s a combination of things. There is no hard and fast rule to getting them to commit suicide. Your best bet is to produce as much to induce fear into them as possible and look out for the signs that they are susceptible. Personally, I like leaving a few corpses lying around, and letting them spot me wounding another bear. Then, whilst in cover, the bears happen across the wounded and de-fluffed and this produces fear, a few light ‘Boos’ around cover will draw them near, then a good loud ‘Boo’ blast should have them cowering and exploding. Your best bet is to experiment, see what works for you best and repeat ad-infinitum.
