If the title of this article has caught your eye, it probably means that you are a loyal player of Dial-911. And we thank you for that ! We chose this topic in order to help you become an experienced gamer, thanks to information and options within the game that you might have missed …
The country is yours
You may have taken time to develop and expand your police station or fire brigade in the city that you carefully selected at the very beginning of your game. But did you know that you can build wherever you feel like … You don’t have to carry on building in the same place throughout your game! Indeed, you are free to build in other cities! Just go to the magnifying glass that you will find at the bottom right of your screen, and enter the name of the city you wish to work in, just as you did at the beginning. Canada is yours, so why limit yourself to a specific area?
Money: the sinews of war
The great player that you are doesnt need to be reminded about the importance of money in the game. One can carry on having fun thanks to the money he/she cashes in through his/her successful missions. Money (fictional money of course) within the game enables you to evolve all along Dial-911. However, you may have missed a piece of information … Have you ever clicked on your level gauge, that one can find on the top left of the screen? Done? In these case, you should see appear a screen called “Mission records.” You have the possibility to go back in time and take a look at the different missions you drove out agents on. The piece of information that interests us the most here concerns the amount of money that you have cashed in thanks to each mission. As a result, a player can see that a fight earned less than a murder, the homicide will have brought in less money than a shootout. What can we claim? The more your mission is complex, the more the money. And with more money, one can evolve in his/her game a lot faster. So when your missions will appear now, we advise you to pay attention to their level, and compare them if you are asked to intervene on several sectors. The aim is to choose those that will earn you the most, of course!
Sorting out one’s vehicles
To intervene on a mission, you have to select the vehicle that seems most appropriate. We remind you the importance of taking into account the distance between your car and the incident in order to reduce the duration of the intervention, and thus put all the chances to succeed on you side and cash in money faster. It is in your choice of cars that the following tip will find its use. Indeed, if you look to the right of your screen, you will see three small icons: a flame (for firefighters), a star (for the police), and an A (for ambulance). Clicking on one of them will enable you to sort out your vehicles according to their type and their final destination. As a long time player, you probably have many cars. So, clicking on the kind of vehicle that you want to drive out, saves you time, once again. As a result, you don’t have to go through your long list to find the most suitable vehicle. Not bad, eh?
Following the progress of one’s interventions
There are several ways to follow the progress of your missions. The Passive way: which consists in waiting for your device to ring and notify you about the necessity of sending out other vehicles. The Active way: which consists in keeping an eye on the progress of your missions thanks to there gauges (the more they go down, the better). However, there is another way that you may not have found out yet. We could name it the « super-active » one. Why? Because it is based on your dynamism. Indeed, you can click directly on the current mission, on the map to see how they are progressing, and drive out, if necessary, new agents.
Silent mode: Dial-911 has thought of everything!
Your addiction to Dial-911 may follow you in places where silence and discretion are essential. Therefore impossible for you to keep your device on ring mode and let the “Dringggggs” fly out. So, how to play without making any noise? Many of you must think that it is simply imposible. But we have good news for you: just because you phone is on silent mode doesnt mean that you are not notified about your missions. If you look closely, the “danger” button at the bottom left of your screen changes to red when you need to make a decision. The color turns bake to orange when the situation is under control. You see, you can play Dial-911 no matter where you are!
