Play Boom Beach on Android
Edited by Grimm, Jen M, Eng, JaxQuest and 1 other
Hello, you're watching VisiHow. Today we are about to teach you how to install the "Boom Beach" game on your Samsung Galaxy S5. To begin with, let's push the lock button, which is right here on the right side of the phone.
Press that one time.
Then you're going to swipe down throw your pattern, swipe across the screen or enter your pin or whatever else it is to keep your phone locked and secure.
Now we are going to press the Google play store icon.
We are going to press that one time.
In the event that you do not have that icon on your desktop, we are going down to apps and tap on that one time.
Once we are in apps, we are going to scroll through until we find the Google play icon.
As you can see we have the Google play icon here. We are going to tap the Google play store app one time.
That is going to lead to Google play store.
Once we are in the Google play store we are simply going to search and type in "Boom Beach".
Tap that one time when it comes up.
Look for the crazy guy with the red bandana and beard.
Tap on it one time.
It's going to start the "Boom Beach" installation window. As you can see I have previously installed it. I did not think you would want to sit through an installment, but I have not actually gone in and played it yet. So you go tap "Install" and wait for your installation to complete.
Once that is done, we are going to tap on "Open".
"Open" will open the application.
We are going to switch to landscape mode and we are going to shut the volume down.
OK here we are.
We have "Boom Beach " set up and ready to go. It would like to be signed in with my Google account.
That's fine if you have a Google account, make sure you let it sign in.
It would like to know my basic profile and information. That is fine.
It would like to make my game information visible.
That is not fine. So we go edit this, we are going to get rid of "Public" and we are going to tap done.
So this app will not send information about you.
Done. Now make your game activity available via Google, visible to "Only to You"
So if you're just like me and you don't like, for instance, your Mom to know that maybe you've spent 30 minutes playing a game, you will find that when you tap the little pencil here.
To edit it, it's not going to say "Only you" it's going to look blank.
And you are going to tap done.
Now it says, "Only you".
Once you have confirmed that it says "Only you" Then you can tap "Sign in".
Now it is asking if I would like to share my profile information and view and manage your game activity.
I am okay with that.
So we have tapped that and we are going to hold a minute for it to sign us in.
We are signed in Fantastic.
Now we are going to zoom into a little corner of an island and there is a person who actually looks like the former late night host Conan O'Brien.
And he is about to say that we have made a successful landing. Thanks, Chief.
This is going to become our base of operations against the black guard threat.
Apparently there are some people called the Black Guard and they are threatening us. So we can't let the enemy surprise us.
That probably means that we have to build some stuff.
Yes, let's build a sniper tower. We need eyes on the horizon at all times. So The purpose of this game is to defend yourself against the marauding enemy but also defending yourself against players and conquering the player and enemies. Since you things automatically rebuild themselves after you have been attacked, it's not like you really lose any real progress, but you do lose collected resources and that sort of thing.
So let's tap our little hammer.
We are going to build ourselves a sniper tower.
Let's put it right there, by pressing the check box.
OK our sniper tower has now been built.
And the enemy ships are approaching. So this is how the enemies attack. Here are our bad guys, and it is this Lieutenant Hammerman.
So he is about let us know, that he is going to crush us.
So we may get crushed. Let's see. Tap "Let's watch the fight"
Let's watch and see what happens.
Let's go! The bad guys are shooting bombs at us and from where I sit, it appears that we may get crushed. Let's see what happens. There are 4 little guys running up.
And mister sniper is actually doing a pretty good job of defending us against them.
That is very impressive.
So he says.
"He is going to come back and it won't be a fair fight." Well that means that maybe we are going to lose. You can read these as your playing, but I am tapping throw them because I do not want to sit here while I read everything. I want to show you how to play the game.
So this is the troop transport.
It allows you to add soldiers to it by pressing the plus button, and you can add your 5 soldiers to it.
Now it is going to make these soldiers, all ready to go.
Now we need to get another landing craft for this. So we are going to go back over her to our little hammer.
We are going to chose landing craft.
Now you can scroll through here and build different things. This is economy, defense, and support. At the moment it is not going to let you click on them because we are in Tutorial. So I have taped on landing craft.
I'm going to build us another landing craft.
Now we are going to load this landing craft up with even more people. So tap your little plus icon. Tao your little soldier boys.
Anytime you want to speed things up, just tap the lighting bolt arrow as well.
So riflemen are ready.
Now we are going to take the fight to the enemy. Click on the map.
Here is an enemy base.
So lets tap that enemy base and see what happens.
Here they are.
Now we can select artillery to attack where we are going to go. So this is our artillery button.
So now you have to tap on what we would like to shoot with our artillery.
I am going to go ahead and shoot this weapon here.
Hopefully it's not going to blow me up to much.
Lets see if I have some more. So, now we select our troops.
And usually you want to try to deploy your troops separately so that they can approach from 2 different points of attack.
The reason for that is a weapon, especially one like this spray weapon like a machine gun, will very quickly take out your troops.
Now your troops are going to go blow up the base.
Once they blow up the base, everything else on the map will blow up. If you want to help them, you can take a shot at the base as well. from your big ship.
Everything blows up.
The little village people are happy that you have rescued them.
They will give you some gold and some wood.
Good job, now we just tap return.
This takes us back to our base, and we have now,this island on our little map and we can go back to our home base as well.
That takes us home.
Now that we are home. We need to build some.Once you are here, the key part is to construct and build and grow your little base. If you don't do that, then you will very easily be overtaken by the enemies. So the first thing you are going to want to do is tap on your little building.
You're going to need storage for your gold.
If you have defense, you build defense, but you can't build anymore defense right now. and you need some come of support thing, like a radar that will let you see more information more places and more detail.
So we are going to start out with our gold storage.
We will move this back here so that it is less likely that it will be attacked by everyone.
That is going to allow us to store more gold.
The more gold we can store, the more things we can build. Now as a general rule when you're playing this game, you can only build one thing at a time so lets see how, I am going to try to build something else. Let go to support and try to build that radar. Here it tells us that all your builders are busy you can only build one building at a time. But for one of these little gems, we can complete it. But lets go ahead and skip that.
Tutorial, why not.
So lets go a head and pay a gem and now that is being build (the radar)
Now we can click on this and our little gold goes up there, and click on the this (wood building) and the wood goes up there.
This is how we build and construct our various little bits and pieces.
As you're going throw the game, you can see there are more things that you will have access to and the farther along you g,o the more the things you will have access to like the iron storage, iron mines.
As you can see there.
You can always get information about yourself by tapping on the little commander icon here.
You can see your stars and how well your doing.
Each of these gives you rewards, see your rewards of 10 little gems, 5 little gems.
You can see other people.
People who have high scores.
The people who are local to you, The region that I am currently in.
These are any friends that you may have.
Commander is your friend, that is an iY game character.
Here are the larger task forces.
These are the groups.
Task forces are basically people who play the game together towards a common goal.
Here are the sound effects you can chose.
You can connect Facebook, you can link other devices, you can change language. Linking devices is actually very helpful if you're going to switch devices or phones, to make sure you don't lose your game progress.
Anyway we have a little message in our mail.
So there is a new Scorcher unit. This is just a message from the people that make the game and player that have made some comments both positive and negative. We don't need to worry about that much.
This is your home base.
See the arrow, that means that you can upgrade it.
Here is this one, there is also an arrow here.
Anything that has a arrow means that you can upgrade it.
Trees as well, you can dig up trees.
So remove it for 600 gold you get 300 wood. This is helpful later if you need some wood. But starting off don't do it.
Now, that it is completed being build, there are little up arrows on all these little things around here.
Each other these things lets us know. So if you want to go here, what does that cost us to increase this. We need to have 600 wood to upgrade this. When we upgrade it we get new things.
So lets go ahead and try that.
It just said we can get wood from here, remove for 600 gold and get 300 wood.
Now we have a little upgrade arrow on the bottom here.
So lets go and upgrade that. We are going to upgrade that for 5 minutes or instant for 7 gems. Instant upgrade.
Here we go.
Now we have a big heavy guy with a machine gun. Its actually like a trash can that shoots bullets. But anyway.
So we can also upgrade our boats and we can also upgrade our ship here.
So if you want to upgrade this its going to cost you 180 wood.
If you want to to upgrade this its coat you 250 wood.
Everything thing that you are going to use, do, upgrade and take care of works like this.
Also now as you see, if I tap the hammer, now that I have upgraded the main base.
Tapping the hammer gives us the selection of new buildings that we can choose from.
At the moment we only have these 3, but we do have some new ones in defense.
A new sniper tower and mines.
Later when you get things built up again.you will have access to these.
For instance you can get another landing craft, once you have your headquarters at level 4.
At the moment if you can see, we tap information the little blue icon .
Our headquarters is currently at level 2.
So this is how you get started in the "Boom Beach" game.
It is very easy to start and lots of fun to play.
So thank you for watching VisiHow. You now know how to get started playing "Boom Beach". Enjoy the game and please leave us questions and comments in the section below. Have a great day.
