Bruce Lee: Enter the Game Mobile Tips and Tricks Guide

Updated on December 5, 2014

Availability and Specs

Bruce Lee: Enter the Game is available on both Android and IOS so most smart devices will easily handle the action. Because the visuals are clean and less-detailed than something like Far Cry, you don't need the latest and greatest device to have a lot of fun.

While I expected to have more fun playing this on a tablet, I found the smaller smartphone screen conducive to the many small swipes I have to use. But in short, whether you're on either platform or any screen larger than 3.5", you should be fine to have a good time.

DealForALiving and Mobile Games

I had a reader ask me why would a personal finance blogger delve into mobile gaming so much. Easy answer: personal finance and mobile gaming are my two passions.

I spend as much time scheming ways to make more money and minimize costs as I do playing freemium mobile games that don't cost me a penny. Compared to the days where I had to buy the $300 console and the $50 game cartridges or discs, it's a sweet deal. in fact, embracing the freemium model was one of the ways I was able to put a dent in my first savings goal (that, and shredding one of my credit cards).

On top of that, I've got over 20 years of gaming experience and I'm damn good when I put my mind to something, so it's a personal duty to share tips and tricks when I can.

My other mobile game reviews are available on my new website: dealforaliving.com.

River City Ransom Transformed

Bruce Lee: Enter the Game reminds me of a truly great NES title: River City Ransom. It was all about punching and kicking opponents so that they'd drop money which you'd then use to upgrade your character, and try to save the girl at the end. This old school charm coupled with the finest touchscreen swiping action available in 2014 makes this game a gem.

In this game, you'll be swiping high and low, short and long, defeating enemies and picking up coins so that you can pump up your Vitality, Power and Fury bars. On top of that, you'll unlock famous Bruce Lee movie get-ups like the Banana suit and the white sleeveless shirt. It's nonstop fun that progressively gets harder like any good action RPG, so tips and tricks are a must if you're interested in mastering the game.

Bruce Lee: Enter the Game Gameplay

Vitality Before Power Before Fury

As with any game in the genre, upgrading your character in a smart way is the first gate to being successful. In this case, hold off on Fury improvements since you'll get those with clothing upgrades. If you're a defensive player like myself, then champion vitality. If you're more of an offensive beast, go with Power.

Play that Last Level Again

Somewhere along the line, Bruce Lee: Enter the Game gets really difficult. And when that happens, what you need to do is start replaying old levels so you can collect coins and buy powerups. It's the tried and true RPG formula from Diablo, Ultima, and Dungeons & Dragons. There's no shortcuts here.

Attack when Attacked

When I think of Bruce Lee, I remember him explaining one of the key tenets of his martial art, Jeet Kune Do. Based on the motion of his opponent and the likely attack, the objective was to counter-attack rather than prepare a block or defensive move. Likewise, when playing, the bottom line is to become really good at the counter-attack. Once you've mastered this, there's no stopping you.

Jab Jab Jab

It's not really my place to tell someone how to play the game, because some players prefer to go with strong attacks or timed counters. The strategy that's worked for me in this game, and many boxing games is to rely on the short, quick strikes. It bails you out of a jam when there's multiple attackers at once, and it gives you an excuse to enjoy more and more swipes.

About DealForALiving

I believe that being frugal and making smart money choices is like any other exercise. As we continue to practice good habits in saving money where possible, finding deals for what we want, and having a good time at it, then we become better at dealing for a living.

I'm committed to sharing my experiences with getting the most out of using credit cards, saving and spending tips, and I might even add a slice of perspective without trying to be a psychoanalyst like some other personal finance folks out there.

Please let me know what you think and if you'd like to hear my take on a specific topic.

Most Sincerely,

Celebrating Bruce Lee

While we're on the topic of the legend, playing the game took me back to some of my favorite Bruce Lee moments. I'm reminded of how Bruce Lee wanted to be remembered as an actor more than as a martial artist on TV or film, and how he went out of his way to share a philosophy of life and value.

And then I remember the scene in Enter the Dragon with the mirror labyrinth and the former Shaolin Monk using the razer claw attachment. Or in Game of Death when he's showing off his skills with the nunchukus.

The fact that someone went out of their way to make this fun game which took me back to these memories is a wonderful celebration of a terrific life lived. I hope you have a similar sense of enjoyment playing the game.
