Crossy Road is a Froggeresque game for the iOS platform, and hopefully soon to be coming for Android as well, where your goal is to go as far as you can, crossing roads and streams and other obstacles, avoiding the million ways to die that are out there. You start off with a chicken as your playable character, hence the name of the game, but you can unlock a ton of other characters as well. Read on for the top 20 tips and tricks for Crossy Road!
20) Swipe sideways and backwards to avoid obstacles that are blocking your path.
Do this if there are trees in your path, for one thing. Also, do this if you end up stuck in a street with cars coming around, because oftentimes you can escape a bad situation in the street by swiping from side to side to try and get away.
19) Collect coins for the chance to earn new characters.
Every coin that you come across moves you toward that 100 coins that is required in order to purchase a new character. Once you have 100 coins you will be able to put the coins into a prize machine/Gacha, and a random new character will come out.
18) Set the push notifications to be alerted whenever your free coins are ready.
Your coins will be ready every few minutes to start with, and then after you play for awhile the time will grow longer and longer, then it will be every six hours. The timer will only reset when you collect your free coins, so collect them as soon as possible, and the best way to remind yourself is via the push notifications.
17) Watch the advertisement videos that pop up after you finish a stage.
They pop up sometimes after you finish a stage, around once every five minutes or so. Watch them every time that they come up so that you can work your way towards earning those coins. Typically, they earn you somewhere between 20 and 40 coins each time that you watch a video.
16) Once you get a Piggy Bank, every single one of the coin methods will improve.
Red coins will pop out on stages in addition to gold coins, and the red ones are worth five coins apiece. The worth of the advertisement video earnings and the free prizes will double. This will remain true after buying the Piggy Bank even when that’s not the character that you use.
