Whether you’re new to the game or you’ve been playing for a while, there’s going to be something here that’ll help you out of a jam. So here are the five best hints, tips and cheats for Pull the Pin for mobile.
Brighten the grey balls
You need to touch the grey balls with their more colorful cousins before you drop them into the bucket. Dropping grey balls is going to make you fail the level. Think about how you can combine them and keep them safe and you’ll be onto a winning strategy.
Avoid the bombs
The bombs will blow up any balls that touch them. They’ll also explode if they come into contact with other bombs, but anything that’s not in the same area as them will be safe. Look for ways to get rid of bombs before you start to move your balls around. Sometimes you can bypass them completely as well.
Think before you pull
Look at the level and think about what your next few moves are going to be before you pull out a pin. Check to see what’s going to happen and how it’s going to affect what comes next. Plan ahead and pull carefully and you’ll find that the levels get much, much easier. Everything in the game is predictable, so use that to your advantage.
Upgrade your buildings
Upgrade your buildings when you’ve got enough cash. This will eventually increase the amount of money you earn idly, which can come in really useful when it’s time to start unlocking the challenges. Those are the only two things to spend coins on, so you may as well do it.
Play the challenges
The challenges are some of the most complex and interesting levels in the game. You’ll have to pay coins to play them, but the rewards are bigger than the outlay. You’re also going to have a lot of fun playing them, so it’s worth having a crack. Apply what you’ve learned above and you should do just fine.
