Each little minigame has its own specific set of instructions. Some have more than one way to do things, and if you do the alternate way, it makes it easier. Let’s go to Freezerville for a good example of that. When you go to the Avalanche Chalet minigame, it will tell you to swipe to close all of the windows. However, if you tap each of the windows and doors instead, then it will close them the same way, and it will take a much shorter time to do so.
Another example of this is the Landmine Curling game. The way it’s set up makes it look like sweeping up and down is the way to win, but it’s not. Sweeping from left to right to left to right will fill the bar MUCH more quickly than sweeping up, down, up, down will, because there is more of a surface area to cover. Arguably, sweeping in a circle or oval is even better.
When you get to the Dumb Dome, there are similar alternate techniques. For the Hammer Throw the game makes it look like you should swipe in a circle. However, if you swipe in a long oval (to match the size of the screen) you’ll be far more successful. Also, with the shoelace tie, you don’t have to swipe in an exact figure-8 pattern in order to tie the lace. As long as the dotted lines are covered, you can do it however you want.
With the lightning pole vault, when you start going faster, you have to tap earlier in order to stop the bar in the middle. Tap when it’s still slightly in the red but almost to the orange, and when it stops it will be in the orange. For the 3 Tonne Clean and Jerk, tilt the phone in small movements rather than large movements so you don’t accidentally set the weight toppling over.
Drown Town is a whole other batch of challenges. With the Dumb Life Saving, they will float in the direction of whatever side you put them on, so try to keep them all on the same side as they started at to make it easier. With the Piranha Freestyle, tap with as many fingers at the same time as you can possibly fit on the screen, because the game will read every single one of them.
The Killer Whale Dentistry challenge can seem nearly impossible at times; however, an easy way to do it, at least early on, is to swipe from side to side rather than tracing the outline of the whale’s teeth with your finger. The tracing will make it very difficult to get every spot on the teeth – not so much with using the actual “brushing” motion.
Dolphin Rodeo is passed in the same way as the 3 Tonne Clean and Jerk – use slow movements with your phone. In this one though, you will have to be extra careful because it can be hard to judge where your center is in this one.
