Table of Contents
Playing Survivor Master-Sifu is relatively easy, if you know how to use strategy to become the very best.
To move around in the game, use the joystick displayed on your screen. Avoid touching any enemies on the screen, as you will lose health and die.
With each wave and level, enemies become increasingly more powerful, so make sure you select the buffs during gameplay that will help you to succeed.
In order to obtain buffs, collect items that drop from enemies you have defeated.
Additional items that help you during gameplay can be found in urns all over the map. Break these urns to receive items such as health, blow up enemies on the entire map, shoot blasts of fire for a timed duration, as well as collect all of the loot dropped by enemies in one go.
These are a few worth mentioning.
Bosses will appear on the map. They can easily be distinguished when you take a look at the icon above their head. The icon will be red and the boss is more difficult to defeat in comparison to the normal enemies attacking you.
Some bosses will have red markings on the ground, be careful of those. If you see the red marking ensure that your character is not standing directly in this space. The attack will cause immense damage if you are caught in this area.
Bosses such as these will drop chests, which will give you extra buffs during the battle.
The big boss as gamers like to say, will be indicated on your screen. The corners of your screen will turn red and large letters will be displayed on your screen indicating the fight is about to begin.
When the big boss appears in Survivor Master-Sifu, all other enemies on the map will disappear and you will have a few seconds to prepare yourself. When the final boss has been defeated on a map, you will clear the stage.
You will have various buffs to choose from, some buffs increase your attack percentage, some increase your number of shots fired, or dragons released, and so forth.
Using buffs that increase the number of shots fired, as well as the damage percentage, works to your advantage, but having a force field surrounding you will work to your advantage even more!
