Although this game might load on touchscreen devices, its controls were optimized for desktops with keyboards.
Your player character runs automatically.
Jump and slide to avoid obstacles.
You can jump over obstacles that are low.
You can jump and slide over objects with empty spaces below them.
Some objects are too high for you to jump over; slide under them instead.
If you are unsure if you should go above or below an object look at the direction the arrows on it point. If they point up you should go over, if they point down you should go under, and if the lines do not point in either direction you can do either.
In some cases an object which you would normally go under appears shortly after another platform. In some of these cases it makes sense to jump over.
You can sometimes double jump by jumping while on top of a platform.
When you are on the train you do not need to jump to move between cars if they are at the same elevation, but you need to jump if the car you are moving to is at a higher elevation.
Collect coins to pay for upgrades.
Keep running as long as you can without hitting anything.
When you hit something, it’s game over.
Besides coins, you can collect various power ups strewn around the tracks.
2x multiplier: Doubles the value of the coins you collect.
Rocket booster: Briefly brings you up to the sky where you can collect coins without hitting anything.
Use the up and down arrow keys to change elevation.
Magnet: Brings the coins to you.
You can buy upgrades to make these power ups last longer.
Upgrades, skins, and continues
You can use the coins you’ve won to buy things from the store.
Access the store from the welcome screen or from the game over screen.
Upgrades improve power ups which appear in the level. The three power ups are rockets, 2X and magnet.
You can pay for up to 7 upgrades for each power up.
These have a ramping cost. The first upgrade costs 50 coins, the next one 100 coins, the third upgrade is 200 coins, the fourth is 500, the fifth is 1,000, the sixth is 2,000, and the seventh is 5,000.
Each upgrade costs a total of 8,850 to max out, for a total of 26,550 to max out all 3.
You can unlock 2 more skins to change the appearance of your player character.
Panda suit (1,000 coins)
Skeleton (5,000 coins)
You can also spend your coins to extend your playing session after you crash.
This will preserve your previous score. Using continues can help you bolster your high score.
Focus first on improving your power ups. You can use the coins for continues once you’ve gained a healthy income from fully upgraded power ups.
Time your jumps with care. Jumping too soon or too late will cause you to crash.
