What is the objective of this game?

In Super Dinosaur: Kickin’ Tail, you must build a powerful team of Heroes and their Sidekicks to vanquish the invading doppelgangers. Each Mission will have a different objective, but all of them require that you use your team strategically to defeat your enemy.

What are Heroes, Sidekicks, and Strikes?

All of the Heroes, Sidekicks, and Strikes in this game are used in battle to complete your Mission objectives.

Each team is composed of three Heroes. Each Hero brings their own selection of Sidekicks and Strikes to every battle. Your team composition is determined entirely by your selection of Heroes.

Most Heroes bring at least one Sidekick with them. These Sidekicks are unique to each Hero. They may be special defensive buildings, large groups of weak Remote Scrappers, or a single powerful unit like Super Robot Dinosaur!

These special abilities make use of advanced technologies to deal damage over a wide area, buff your Heroes and Sidekicks, or hinder your enemies.

What is the H.E.G. and what does it stand for?

The H.E.G. stands for “Higher Efficiency Generator”; it is your mobile base of operations and must be protected at all times.

What does the H.E.G do?

The H.E.G generates the energy you need to deploy your Heroes, Sidekicks, and Strikes onto the battlefield. Using your team strategically will help protect your H.E.G. and allow you to complete your Mission objectives.

Can the H.E.G. fight back?

Yes, it can! If enemies get close enough to the H.E.G., it will start attacking them with a powerful shock. Every time the H.E.G. loses a quarter of its health it will perform a devastating shockwave attack striking anything within a 12-yard radius around it.

What happens if my H.E.G. loses all of its health?

If your H.E.G. is destroyed, it’s game over. You will lose the battle and have to try to beat it again. There is no penalty for losing, and you can attempt each Mission as many times as you’d like.

I’ve tried the same battle several times and can’t beat it, what should I do?

If you’re struggling to beat a level, try repeating earlier stages to gather the Tech and Circuits to power up your team. This should make completing challenging levels much easier.

I tried deploying a Hero, Sidekick, or Strike from my team, but it won’t appear on the field. What happened?

A unit cannot be deployed if you don’t have enough energy to pay its energy cost.

Energy? What is it and what’s it used for?

Energy is used to deploy Heroes, Sidekicks, and Strikes onto the battlefield. At the bottom of the screen, there is a yellow bar composed of 10 separate segments. Each section of the bar will slowly fill as time passes and represents one unit of energy. The total energy you have available to spend is displayed as a number in the bottom left of the screen.

How will I know when I have the energy to deploy a Hero, Sidekick, or Strike?

The cost of each Hero, Sidekick, and Strike is indicated in the top left corner of the unit by a small number inside a yellow square. If you do not have enough energy to deploy a unit it will dim and sit lower on the screen. A unit that you do not have the energy to play will have a small timer that indicates when you’ll be able to play it. This timer is a small glowing line that will slowly rotate to form a complete circle, the rate at which it fills indicates how long it will be before the unit can be deployed. Once you have collected enough energy to play a unit it will highlight and move up the screen indicating it’s available to be deployed.

Why can I only deploy my Heroes, Sidekicks, and Strikes in a certain area of the field?

Units can only be deployed into a small area controlled by your team. This is most commonly next to your H.E.G., but may also be next to another objective or your leader. Your opponent is restricted in the same manner and can only deploy units on their half of the battlefield.

What does the big yellow circle underneath my Hero’s feet indicate?

The large yellow circle slowly fills up while your Hero is out on the field. Once the circle is completed, that Hero’s Super is ready to use.

How do I activate a Hero’s Super when it becomes available?

Once a Hero’s Super is ready, a portrait of the Hero will appear above their head. Tapping on this portrait will activate the Hero’s Super.

How do I charge my Heroes’ Super Meter?

All Heroes charge up their Super Meter slowly over time as long as they are on the field. Tank Heroes generate additional Super Meter when they take damage, Ranged Heroes generate additional Super Meter when they deal damage, Assassin Heroes generate additional Super Meter when an enemy is defeated nearby, and Fighter Heroes generate additional Super Meter when they take or deal damage.

How do I find out what the combat specialization of a Hero is?

Each Hero’s combat specialization can be found when they are observed in the Team menu. If you tap on a Hero in the Team menu to view the details of their stats, you will see what combat specialization they are indicated at the top right of the pop-up that appears. These four combat specializations are: Tank, Fighter, Ranged, and Assassin.

Why don’t any of my Sidekicks and Strikes have a Super?

Only Heroes like Derek Dynamo and Super Dinosaur have access to powerful Supers. Each Hero has a different Super, and choosing the right combination of Heroes can mean the difference between victory and defeat!

How do I know what my Hero’s Super does?

You can check what a Hero's Super does by navigating to the Team Menu, selecting the Hero, then tapping the Information button on their character sheet.

Not all Missions have the same objective. How many different types of battles are there in the game?

Currently, there are 6 different types of battles: Overpower, Strike Team, Time Sensitive, Protect, Payload, and Field Commander.  All of these types of battles will be scattered throughout the main campaign.

What are Events?

Events are repeatable secondary Missions that can be completed once you have hit player level 3. These Missions can reward Crates, Circuits, Advancement Tokens, Character Tokens, and Tech to help upgrade your team to make them even stronger!

Can I play more than five Missions per day, per Event?

Only the Character Event Missions can be repeated multiple times in a day. This requires the use of Dynore to reset the number of attempts you have to play the event Mission.

I don’t want to have to pay attention to every battle I play. Is there an Auto-Battle function in the game?

Yes, there is! The small button at the bottom left corner of the screen while in a battle enables and disables the Auto-Battle function. It can be freely toggled on and off during any battle.

Why isn’t the Auto-Battle button working when I tap on it?

You must unlock the Auto-Battle feature for each Mission by completing it first. Once a Mission has been completed, you can use the Auto-Battle function when replaying the level.

How do I quit a battle?

At the top left of the screen is a pause button. Tapping on it will open a window with several options. Tapping the Quit button will return you to the title screen.

Can I deploy multiple copies of the same unit onto the battlefield?

Sidekicks can be freely deployed multiple times and there is no limit to the number of duplicates that can be on the battlefield at the same time. However, Heroes are unique and multiple copies cannot be deployed onto the battlefield at the same time. Deployed Heroes cannot be added to your available units until they are defeated in battle. They will then appear again for you to deploy.

Are there more difficulty levels than just Normal for the Campaign Missions?

Yes, there are currently three different difficulty levels available for the Campaign: Normal, Hard, and Expert difficulties.

How do I unlock the other two difficulty levels in the Campaign Missions?

At first, you will only have access to the Normal difficulty. Completing the campaign on Normal will unlock the Hard difficulty. Completing the campaign on Hard unlocks the Expert difficulty for players looking for the ultimate challenge.

How do I unlock the next Mission Pack in the Campaign?

The Campaign is broken up into multiple Mission Packs. To unlock the next Mission Pack you must complete each of the Missions in the preceding Mission Pack.

Why should I complete Missions on harder difficulties?

Completing Missions on higher difficulties will yield Supply Crates, these are the only Crates in the game that award Dynore. Completing these Missions on harder difficulties will also complete achievements, which give out additional rewards.

What are Crates?

Crates are boxes that you receive and open after completing every battle. They contain all kinds of special loot to help you power up your team.

What kind of loot comes out of these Crates?

Depending on its rarity, a Crate can contain Tech, Dynore, Circuits, and/or Hero Tokens. The rarity of a Crate also affects the number of items that are received.  Some Crates can also yield Advancement Tokens.

What is Dynore, what do I use it for?

Dynore is a universal currency in the game which can be used to buy Circuits and Crates. It can also be used to refill spent Arena tickets and to refresh your selection of Daily Deals.

What is Tech, and what does it do?

Tech are components that you receive from opening reward Crates after completing a Mission. Each piece of Tech you collect will be geared towards a specific Hero, Sidekick, or Strike. Once you’ve collected enough Tech, it can be used to upgrade your Heroes, Sidekicks, and Strikes; increasing their health, damage, or unlocking and improving special abilities!

What are Circuits?

Circuits are used in tandem with Tech to level up your Heroes, Sidekicks, and Strikes. Additionally, Circuits can be used to buy more Tech from Daily Deals. You can’t level up your units without having enough Tech and Circuits.

What are Hero Tokens?

Hero Tokens are special items you receive when opening Crates. They are always associated with a specific Hero and that Hero’s icon will be indicated on the Token. Once you have collected enough of a specific Hero’s Tokens, you will be able to use them to unlock that Hero to use in battles.

What are Mod Tokens?

Mod Tokens are rare items that can only be received as a reward from Crates. These rare, one-time, unlockable items are used to enhance your team’s Sidekicks and Strikes. Once a Mod Token is received you can activate it in the Team menu to receive its buff.

How many Mod Tokens are there?

There are currently 2 unique Mod Tokens per Sidekick and/or Strike on each team. For a total of 8 unique mods per character’s team.

Can I have both Mod Tokens active at the same time?

No, you are only allowed to have 1 Mod Token active on each of the character’s Sidekicks and/or Strikes at once.

What are Advancement Tokens?

Advancement Tokens are a rare item. They are only used to upgrade your individual team member’s rarity. The rarer the Hero, Sidekick, or Strike is, the better their stats become. You’ll want to save these for a unit you really like and want to make even stronger!

What is the Arena?

The Arena is a special battle mode that pits you directly against other player’s teams. Winning in the Arena will earn you Battle Points (BP), the higher your BP the better your rewards will be when the Arena resets at the end of the season (end of the week).

How do I get to the next Tier ranking in the Arena?

Once you participate in your first season of the Arena you will be ranked according to how high your BP was relative to other competitors. Receiving a higher BP than your opponents will place you in higher tiers allowing you to earn even rarer rewards!

How do I earn a lot of BP in the Arena?

To get the most BP possible you will need to challenge the toughest of opponents. Each time you enter the Arena, you will be able to choose your preferred difficulty. The more difficult the opponent, the more your BP will increase if you win. Taking on easier opponents will give you less BP for each win, but will be much easier to defeat.

What can I earn in the Arena?

Depending on your BP at the end of each season, many rewards can be earned. This includes Circuits, Dynore, Crates, and special Profile borders to show off how awesome you are!

I only have three attempts in the Arena, can I get more?

Yes! You get three attempts per day in the Arena. Once those are used up you have the option to refill your Arena Cards with Dynore as many times as you want!

I came back to the game after a while and my Arena tier decreased. Why is this?

While you’re away your team can be challenged to fight in the Arena. Don’t worry, they will automatically defend against any teams that try to take you on. This means that your team can earn and lose BP while you’re away, raising and lowering your Tier accordingly.

How do I set up my defensive team for when I am not currently playing the game?

The most recent battle you played in the Arena will determine the team you are using for defense. Play the Arena using your strongest units to form the strongest team possible!

Why did my Arena score reset to zero?

The Arena season has just ended, and every player’s score has reset. This gives every player an equal opportunity to earn the highest BP they can each season. It wouldn’t be fair if the same person was able to keep earning BP and became unbeatable… that would be totally un-awesome!

I see a little calendar at the top of my screen, what does that do?

That is the Daily Login screen. If you tap on it you can see how many days in a row you have logged in. You can also see what rewards you’ll earn by logging into the game multiple days in a row.

What is the Player Profile?

Your Player Profile is accessed by tapping on the character portrait in the top left of the main screen. Accessing your profile will allow you to view your name, level, the number of unlocked characters, the total number of arena wins, MVP, and the stats for your H.E.G. From the Player Profile you can freely edit your display name, Profile Icon, and Portrait Border.

How do I change my Profile Icons and Border?

Profile Icons and Borders can be changed by accessing your Player Profile, then select the Profile Icon or Border tab, and finally selecting an available Icon or Border.

I can’t set my Profile Icon to the character I want.Why is this?

Some of the Profile Icons will be locked when you first gain access to the Player Profile. You unlock new Profile Icons for different Heroes by unlocking the Hero for use in-game. Borders can also be unlocked by participating in the Arena!

Where can I find my Achievements?

The Trophy button located at the top of the screen opens up your History of Awesomeness! Here you can find a list of every Achievement you’ve completed, or look at the requirements to complete any Achievements you’re still working on.

What are Goals, and where can I find my Goals?

Goals can be viewed from the Trophy shaped menu at the top of the screen. Goals unlock once you have reached player level 6 and reset daily. Goals reward you once completed - the rarity or value of the reward will scale with the difficulty of the Goal!

What’s the difference between Goals and Achievements?

Goals reset daily, so you only have one day to complete them and earn the rewards. Achievements are long-term objectives and have no time limit; you can work towards them slowly, and many of them take a long time to complete.

How do I change my display name?

You can change your display name by opening your Profile and tapping on the pencil icon next to your display name. Once you’ve entered a new name and confirmed it, you’ll be all set!
