Like most tactical-based gaming experiences, knowledge in Boom Beach is power. But if you want to be dangerous, you'll need to apply that knowledge strategically.

That's where our latest guide comes in.

Produced by the team who brought you The Clasher’s Guide to Clash of Clans – arguably the App Store’s most loved Clash of Clans reference app, even if we do say so ourselves – The Pocket Gamer Guide to Boom Beach is another comprehensive, must-download reference breakdown for Supercell players.

Granted, it's designed to help Boom Beach beginners become super troopers but we've also included the key information and tactics that seasoned BB players can refer to in order to improve their combat success.

So you'll find each section is packed with tactical help and backed with the data that matters – Hit Points, Upgrade Cost/Time, Damage stats, HQ level requirements, and more. And you obviously get a complete breakdown of Resources, Support units, Defenses, and Troops, as well as other elements like Tips and the ability to send in a pic of your base for others to covet.

Consider it your on-the-field support, recruit, packaged in a fully interactive experience and backed by the leading production values PG Guides have become famous for.

Been on continuous tours and not heard of the PG Guides? At ease, (wo)men, here's the intel: The Pocket Gamer Guides are a growing line of delightfully touch-friendly iOS publications designed to help players take their iPhone/iPad playing to the next level of enjoyment.

Boom Beach is the latest addition to a squad that already comprises Clash of Clans, BADLAND, The Room, Galaxy on Fire 2, Star Command, Bubble Witch Saga, Doodle Jump, Ridiculous Fishing, and Tiny Troopers 2.

But enough talk, soldier: The Pocket Gamer Guide to Boom Beach is available now on iPad for just 99c / 69p - a tiny sum to pay for the amount of testosterone that's gone into making it.
