Here are a few tips and tricks for beginners. 

Select the Shades wisely

When you complete a stage in Shades: Shadow Fight Roguelike you will be presented with a screen that will ask you to choose one card from a list of three.

These cards or “Shades” as they are called in the game, offer improvements to Shadow in the form of stat boosts, moves, etc.

You must select them carefully as it will greatly impact your gameplay afterward.

Also, make sure to choose ones that suit your playstyle as not all shades will be effective for everyone.

Sure, you could choose the one that boosts your critical chance, but if you’re someone who takes a lot of hits, then picking one that increases your max health will be more useful. 

Don’t forget to forge items

Forging items in Shades: Shadow Fight Roguelike is a way of improving.

To forge an item (armor, helmet, weapon) you will need another of the same.
