Cat Bird is a new level-based platform game for the iOS and Android platforms. You play as a literal cat bird who gets knocked off of its cat planet by a disturbance, so your goal is to quest through all of these planets and try to get back to your own planet. Read on for some tips and tricks for Cat Bird!
You have two basic moves that you can do in the game. You can jump, and then after you jump, you can hold down on the screen to float/hover down at a slow pace by flapping your wings. Smart use of the wing-flapping mode will be absolutely necessary in order to get crowns and make it to the next level.
When you beat a level, you will automatically go on to the next level. You can quit and back out, and go right back to the level select screen at any point in time, though. This is best when you need to go back to an old level to find a crown that you may have missed, so that you can move on to the next planet.
However, when you do earn all of the required crowns, you won’t automatically move onto the next planet just yet. First, you have to beat all of the levels on the planet that you’re currently on, whether you earn crowns on all of them or not. Once you do that, you will be able to move onto the next planet. The percentage meter above the level select area will show how far along you are on the current planet. Once it’s at 100 percent, then you can go to the next planet.
Always keep looking for new strategies to try that you haven’t tried before, because each level will present different obstacles. Especially look out for new obstacles to pop up once you transition from one planet to the other. Those changes will tend to be more jarring than simply going from one level to the other on the same planet.
When you’ve gotten some expertise at the same, hit the time trial mode to give a shot at speed running the game. Each speed run will be one entire planet at a time, so before you hit the button, make sure you want to play the entire planet. You can back out of a level whenever you want, but in the speed run, that means you’ll lose your time and have to start at the beginning of the planet.
