How to Team Jump Effectively

Team Jumping is a technique that you can only use during battles in Sparks of Hope.

Essentially, it’s a great way to make the most out of every turn that you get in the game. During battles, there is a finite amount of distance that you can travel, shown visually by the white glowing circle around your chosen character. When you fire/use a weapon, you cannot move any further until the next round.

Team Jumping allows you to work with another character in order to travel further.

To start, run up to another character. They must be right next to you for this to work. Then, hit the A button when the ‘Team Jump’ prompt appears.

Your character will then go up into the air.

You’ll have a finite amount of time to travel, using the left stick to steer, with the option to drop down before the timer is up if you desire. You can see your new travel space allowance when flying through the air, represented by a yellow circle below you.

If you want to drop down earlier, hit the B button.

It’s worth noting that when you land, your character won’t be able to move any further than this yellow circle. Pick your new location wisely, remembering to check for any nearby enemies, portals, or shelters that you can use.

Team Jumping is a great way to make the most out of every turn in the game, and to get an advantage over your foes, too. Knowing how to Team Jump and how to Dash in Sparks of Hope properly may seem like basic skills to some, but these techniques are amazing for increasing your mobility and making the most out of your turns.

How to Optimize Your Sparks of Hope Battles

Team Jumping is an effective way of making the most out of your turns in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. There are a few other ways to gain an advantage during a battle, and I’ve picked out some of my top tips here.

Dash Into Enemies

It might seem obvious, but don’t forget to dash into nearby enemies at the beginning of a battle to get a head start.

Dashing might not be a guaranteed knock-out, but shaving off an extra bit of health or getting rid of an extra Goomba can make all the difference.

Work Together

If you’re someone who hasn’t had the chance to play many turn-based games on the Switch with multiple characters, this one’s for you. Don’t forget to move as a unit when controlling your characters in a battle.

Consider how each character can help the other in a battle before moving. Do you have a character that’s been left out in the open with no shelter, for example? Move another character with a protective move near them to help soak up any damage.

There’s a wonderful variety of moves and abilities in Sparks of Hope, so make sure that you’re using them in a cohesive way during your matches. This is something that I personally struggled to remember to do when I started playing initially, but focusing on this has made all the difference to my progress now.

Use Your Items Wisely

One of the best things about Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is that there are heaps of great items to use during battle. Being thoughtful with your item usage is a great way to optimize your turns and increase your chances of success.

For example, say you’re battling against a series of enemies but need to be shutting a portal to prevent more spawning. Try Team Jumping over to the portal, and using a POW Block to get rid of the enemies behind you.

Play With the Right Difficulty For You

If you’re really struggling with a particular battle or boss, why not check out how to change the difficulty levels in Sparks of Hope? While some folk may not like the idea of messing with difficulty sliders or enemy threat levels, it can be a great way to remove a bit of stress and give you space to focus on where you want to go.

You can even create custom difficulty settings in Sparks of Hope, too. There’s plenty of interesting options to mess with in the menu.

This particular tip won’t be for everyone, but if you want to improve how you’re playing and focus more on moving throughout the map with fun abilities rather than worrying about getting hit, changing the difficulty levels for a battle or two could help you out a lot.
