ZigZag is the latest in the line of Ketchapp-published time killers for the iPhone and iPad that you can play for a minute or two at a time, but that it’s very easy to get royally addicted to. In this game, your goal is to go up an isometric-style stage by tapping to change the direction of the little rolling marble. You’ll go up narrow pathways, collect crystals on the way, and try to avoid falling off the side while dealing with speed that gradually increases. Read on for some tips and tricks for ZigZag by Ketchapp!
Be prepared for the speed changes to come as you go farther and farther in each stage. About every fifty points or so, the color of the stage will change. The speed will increase at this point, too, so watch out for the speed changes. You’ll have to change the pace of your tapping whenever this happens. As you play, pay attention to the points at which the speed increases.
Tap with alternating thumbs so that you can change directions more quickly, and because doing so can trick your brain a bit and help you to get a better score at the game. Be sure that one of your thumbs is off the screen when you hit the screen with the other thumb though, so that you don’t end up having a bad tap, because the screen can only register one tap at a time.
When you go to the high score screen, scroll past all of the hackers, because those are the ones responsible for scores like 90,000 and 100,000. Once you get down to the scores that look semi-realistic, use those as your barometer for what to shoot for, because those are more likely to be the real life scores.
This game can be very prone to slowing down depending on what’s going on with your phone or tablet. Load as many apps in the background as you can and you’re more likely to end up slowing down the game, which can give you more time to react and make the speed ups seem not so bad, although they can also make things less predictable and if you are an advanced player, they can make it seem to take longer to get anything done.
If you want to get rid of the ads for free, you can set your phone into airplane mode or turn off the data and the wifi, and the ads will stop showing up. It’s not generally recommended to do this though, because as annoying as the ads can be, they are how the developer makes money and what enables them to make more games.
