PostSubject: Apoth tips   Tue Dec 12, 2006 12:40 am

Here's a few tips for getting incred apoth.

First thing I learned was to work my way from the bottom up. Look at the colors needed, remembering that it's the bottom color in the bottle that is filled. Choose a color that is in multiple bottles, preferably in bottles that are near each other and not on opposite sides of the screen.

Link the the bottles together as soon as you can, then run the pipes up to the color well.

Repeat that with as many colors as you can, remembering that (quite obviously), red and blue make purple, yellow and blue make green and red and yellow make orange. If you mix more than two colors together, it will turn brown which will only explode bottles.

The more colors you can do in the one turn the better you will score.

Ok, now you know the basics, lets move onto the special tokens.

Coins. These give a bonus to the color that is run through them.

Multifill. These pieces are very helpful when you have one or more bottles that need two or more of the same color. Run the color through the pipe that has the multifill token on it to fill all of that color in the bottle.

Quicksilver. These pieces are the secret to getting incred. Quicksilver will fill any and all colors. To get the benefit of quicksilver first you need to run a standard color through the quicksilver token and into a bottl like normal to activate it. Then, working from the bottom up, link as many bottles as you can up to the well that will now be silver in color. As quicksilver will fill every color it touches, for this you can safely ignore colors and not have to worry about exploding bottles.

Sometimes a token will appear on a piece where two separate pipes cross each other, when this happens, try your damnedest to use both pipes for separate colors. That way you will get the bonus twice, one for each color. Also try to double up on tokens if you can. For example, running a color through a coin and multifill to get a bigger bonus. Laughing

It seems that using quicksilver and multifill will not fill the entire bottle regardless of color as you may expect. The quicksilver overrides the multifill, so try to use these tokens separately.

For those that are completely new to apothing, remember that if you run the wrong color to a bottle, it will explode leaving a nasty mess on your bottle rack and reduce your score. As the exploded bottles do not leave your bottle rack, too many of them will seriously reduce the amount of bottles available to fill, therefore reducing the options you have. The more of these exploded bottles the lower your score.

Happy Apothing geek
