Burst Help and Tips

Burst tips and walkthroughs

We are beginning to compile a list of walkthroughs for different Burst! levels. Feel free to leave your own, or request a walkthrough for a level.
First though, tips:

Points in Burst! depend on balloons popped, blocks broken, and arrows used. But there are some things that make a difference.

1: Popping multiple balloons with one regular arrow will result in successive point increases. The first balloon is 100, second 150, third 200, and so on. So pop as many balloons with one arrow as possible.
2: Using less arrows results in a higher arrow bonus. This matters much much more if you only need a few arrows to finish a level, whereas if it takes a lot of arrows, a few extra won’t make much of a difference.
3: Destroying blocks, especially if you can do it without wasting arrows, can really improve your score. For example, both the yellow and red paths take the same number of arrows but the red path will result in more blocks falling and breaking ie higher points!

    1. Hi Lyd. In Settings->General->Restrictions there’s a switch that says In-App Purchases. Just turn that on and you’ll be fine!

  1. In Burst! in the Nadir caves on level 15 how do I beat it been working 4 days and can’t figure it out is there a walkthrough available

    1. Hi Jason,

      Thanks for contacting us about Burst!. In Nadir Caves 15 you first get the fire arrow and shoot low and hard to get the bottom two balloons. Then you get the punch arrow and knock the metal rod down to clear the way for the final two balloons.

      We’ll make a youtube walk-through for that level to demonstrate.


    1. Hi Georgina,

      You have to beat each level in order to advance to the next. We are working on a skip level feature for the next update. I hope that helps!


    1. Hi Ashley,

      The first arrow should go up top at just the right angle to hit the metal pole which knocks the punch balloon into the spikes.
      The second arrow should go just below the fan balloon (don’t hit it!) and knock the 2nd metal pole down.
      The third arrow should get the fan arrow, and finally with the last shot, blow the cave boss into the spikes!

      We’ll create a walk-through video for this level! It’s pretty tough.


      1. In nadir caves 20, ihave knocked the
        pole down but when I use the fan to blow
        the balloon towards the spikes, it’s blocked
        By the pole itself. What am I doing wrong here ?

  2. First, thank you for an interesting game. I bought it in thanks for the Pro shooting option.

    I’m very much looking forward to the skip level feature!

    I cannot get past Nadir caves 19, no matter how I choose to shoot the frozen arrows there are always balloons surrounded by blocks.

    If possible, try to offer hints on what you are looking for to get 3 stars? It is frustrating to try over and over to get the ‘best’ score and never get 2 or 3 stars.

    Thank you!


    1. Hi Chris,

      Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

      We will post a video walk-through for Nadir Caves 19 on youtube. It’s a level that seems easy looking at it, but is very hard to beat.

      We are working on a detailed score analysis screen that will break down where each point came from so that players know where to go to improve. I can offer this right now though, you get successive point bonuses for multiple balloon pops. Say there are 5 balloons. If you pop them all with one arrow you will get 100 + 150 + 200 + 250 +300 = 1000 points (because the bonus increases by 50 each time), where you only get 100 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 100 = 500 points by popping them with 5 arrows. That is generally where most of the extra points come from. using less arrows also gives you an arrow bonus which can amount to quite a lot.

      The update is coming really well. We hope to have it released in about two weeks.


  3. What does it take to get 3 stars in level 18 in nadir caves ? I think the third star is broken! 2500 points should be plenty of points and it’s only 2 stars.

  4. Played and enjoyed free levels so bought game to continue. Update completed but no access provided to the add levels. Of course my iTunes account was successfully charged. Now deleted and reinstalled to see if that might fix it but lost all my data so won’t know for sometime if it is fixed or still broken. Not a good process or experience so now what?

    1. Hi Jim,

      I’m sorry to hear that. We haven’t heard of this issue before, so hopefully it will allow you to continue into the next map-pack as it’s supposed to. Does the buy button still show up? It should go away on purchase to show you the full game is unlocked.


    1. Hi Yvonne,

      Shoot the arrow normally, then after it has been launched, your next touch will “pull” the arrow to it. So, shoot and touch. Note that the arrow will come straight to your touch, so wait until it’s around the obstacle, or in the position you want,before touching the screen.

      This arrow is useful for shooting past something, then bringing the arrow back to the far side of it.


  5. Having a blast getting thru various levels. But stuck on desiduous forest level 6 with the radar! Are there any tips or walk throughs? Thanks

    1. Hi Teisha! I’m glad you are enjoying the game!

      The radar arrow will change direction in mid-air after it has been launched. So, shoot normally, then touch the screen and the arrow will come straight to your touch.

      This arrow is useful for shooting past something, then bringing the arrow back to its far side.

      In Desidious level 6, you want to punch the wooden block out of the way, then shoot a radar arrow through the hole… touching the balloons after it’s through. It will come back and hit them!

      We will make a video πŸ˜€


  6. I love this game – looking forward to more levels and walkthroughs! In the meantime, I’ve completed all but three levels. I think I’ll just need some luck in Nadir Caves 19, but I’m totally stuck on Desidious Forest 4 and 13. I can get level 4 with three arrows – I don’t know what else to try. Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. Hi! We are so glad to hear that you like the game!

      I’m sure you saw the youtube video of nadir 19. Getting 3 bursts on it requires more of the same with a few less arrows.

      Desidious 4 can actually be done with two arrows πŸ™‚ Shoot the pink balloon such that your arrow bounces back and gets the yellow one. Very tricky but possible.

      Desidious 13 can be done with 3 arrows. First, get the radar arrow. Then shoot over and hit the green balloon, tapping to back to bring it in and pop the ice balloon. Then, shoot the metal block to drop the whole platform. The little balloons will usually pop into the spikes and you’re done.

      Good luck! We will release more videos soon!
