How to upgrade skills in Dan The Man for iOS and Android

Dan the Man is all about perfectly timed punches, kicks, jumps and throws but you can easily double the impact with these tips on how to power up your attacks and blast through the bad guys. Before you get started, sharpen your basic skills.

Crazy combo chains The most effective way to deal with enemies quickly is to string together multiple strikes (this will serve you well in ‘Battle Mode’). It’s all about the timing. Use the first few levels to get into the groove.

Level-ups are rad Upgrade your character whenever possible! Not only does this transform your basic attacks into brutal blows and combos, it also adds new moves to your arsenal. After all, no boss is going to fall to a basic high kick, right?

Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight Always remember to upgrade your weapons.  You can’t always rely on your lethal limbs, especially when you dive deeper into the chaos. Not only are Tier 3 weapons ridiculously powerful, they also have gold skins. Might as well kick ass in style right?

Reach for the skies The higher they are, the harder they fall. Ranged enemies are the bane of your existence. If you’re not careful, your health will go from 100 to 0, real quick. Always eliminate ranged enemies first. Upgraded weapons will come in very handy.

Show me the money It goes without saying that collecting coins is important. Grab every coin on offer and buy wares in "Ye Oldde Shoppe" to get an edge. You never know when extra health or weapons could come in handy, especially in the later story levels, weekly challenges, and Survival Mode.

Wicked threads and mad heads This one is top secret. If you create and use a custom character, you can add special buffs to your creation. These can then be used to boost gold drops, stun resistance, damage resistance, maximum health and more. All very important! Tap the “Player" button to access the dressing room for Custom Characters and get creative. You didn’t hear this from us. Oh, and you have to beat the Level 3 Boss to unlock this option. That shouldn’t be too hard using the tips above, right?

Escape the grind We get it. You don’t have time to grind through the game. Well, in that case, tap on the Shop button on the main menu and grab whatever you need. From coin packs to new characters, you can even play as a fully upgraded pirate character. Whatever floats your boat.

Well, there you have it. If you need more cheats, hacks and tips to get you through, give us a shout on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
