Super Auto Pets is an adorable car battler that simplifies many of the mechanics you would normally see in these types of games, with an emphasis on fast and easy gameplay that everyone can enjoy. The main focus of the game is to buy and develop different pets to win ten matches before losing your ten lives. While in the beginning you only lose one life after being defeated in a round, this will increase by one after every few rounds, up to a maximum of three lost lives.
While trying out different combinations of pets and upgrades is a lot of fun in the beginning, after a while you’ll start to see that the game has a well-rounded metagame with several builds for you to try out. However, keep in mind that RNG is still a big factor, so it will be nearly impossible to build every game the same. So here are some builds you can try out in your next Super Auto Pets game.
4 Fish and bison
The main focus of this build is to grow a Fish to level three and then buy a level four Bison, which is buffered every turn due to the maximum Fish you have. Although the Fish is only a level one pet, he is probably one of the strongest level creatures available to you. With great base stats and an excellent ability that gives your entire team +1/+1 when leveling up, it will help you scale your entire team during the early and mid-game.
The bison is a level four pet that gains +2/+2 each turn as long as you have a level 3 pet on the board. Obviously the Bison can get its buff by having a level three pet in the game, but getting a creature from level one to level three is the easiest as you’ll see a lot of it in the first few turns.
Here are some of the best pets to add to this combination:
A turtle to give your Bison melon armor.
Penguin for scaling your whole team – keep in mind that they all need to be at least level 2 to get the buff.
A caterpillar that copies your bison’s stats.
Some other shapes of scales for your bison, such as a monkey.
3 building a summoner
Usually this build starts with a horse and some crickets. This should get you some early wins, but you’ll have to switch at some point as this doesn’t work in the mid or late game. Your first move is to replace the crickets, ideally with spiders or sheep. However, if you manage to make a level three Cricket, don’t give up just yet as you can use it for a Bison combo later.
Ideally, you can find a turkey that will replace your horse once you reach the endgame. In addition, you must be on the lookout for a Fly to complete your summoning combo.
The main strategy of this build is to overwhelm your opponent with a stream of buffed subpoenas that never seems to end. RNG can have a big say in this, but if you’re lucky and spawn another sheep from a spider, the tide of battle could turn quickly. Your biggest opponents are a hippopotamus, rhinoceros or any number of stealthy creatures such as a gator or dolphin that can take out your horse or turkey.
2 build otter
Not exactly the strongest possible build to try, but it’s consistent. Your main focus is to get a level one pet that you want to take to the endgame, like a fish or a mosquito, and then start buying all the otters you can get your hands on. Those otters will buff your most important pet and turn him into a force to be reckoned with. All you need to do after that is keep polishing your main pet with whatever food you can find, garlic, melon armor, and so on. Later in the game, you can get a crab that mimics the health of your strongest pet, or a kangaroo that can hide behind that pet and get a few buffs before it dies.
The biggest threat you can face is a scorpion that will kill your raised pet in one fell swoop, although this can be remedied by Melon Armor. A Skunk that manages to get its debuff on your main pet will probably also put you at a loss, but in general you won’t see much of it.
1 Building hurt
A build that’s pretty hilarious when it works, it highlights the use of creatures that hurt all the pets on the board, including your own. In the early game you use hedgehogs and puffer fish. The Pufferfish goes well with an elephant that can damage it any turn, dealing damage to random enemy pets. Getting Garlic Armor on your Pufferfish as soon as possible will also give your opponents a lot of headaches. Once you get your hands on a badger, make sure to equip it with honey so that it wins if it manages to take out the remaining enemies when it dies.
The worst thing about this build is that you will have games that keep you building bonds because of the self-destructive nature it brings to the board. This is not the type of build that thrives in the late game, so getting some early game wins is very important. Remember you don’t have to go all out on creatures that do damage to the entire board, having some all round consistent pets in your crew can help too.
