Guide to Paper Galaxy for iOS: Tips, tricks, hints, cheats and strategies

Paper Galaxy is a new take on the endless runner genre that’s pervasively popular on the iOS and Android platforms. Rather than just thoughtlessly running, instead you are a moon who has the allergies, sneezing your way from planet to planet trying to get back to earth, but running into various obstacles in the process. Every time that you come into contact with another planet you orbit around it, but your real goal is to get back to the planet earth. Read on for some tips and tricks for Paper Galaxy!

When you unlock the super sneeze power ups, use then wisely. Every 500 lengths, you hit a wall of ice that freezes you and slows you down. However, each time that you do a super sneeze, you will jump right over whatever is above you, so use a super sneeze to jump over the wall of ice, as well. If you miss the sneeze or you run out of sneezes, then simply tap the screen as fast as you can after you get frozen.

Use the super sneeze to jump over black holes and suns, too. If you do get caught in a black hole, tap on the screen only once to pull yourself out of it. If you get hit by the sun and knocked backward, you’re pretty much screwed. Buy as many super boost slots as you can in the store. Save your stardust for them.

However, if you hit the sun backwards (hit it from the top), you will get launched upward at a very high rate of speed, even more quickly than you would from a super sneeze. Use this to your advantage to intentionally launch yourself into suns to strategically speed yourself up without using a super boost.

When you are on a mission to collect stardust, forget about trying to go far and simply spend your time hunting around for rich planets and collecting stars from them, and from star formations. Do this for as long as you can until the Crab Nebula shows up and eats you. Even if you only make it to around 200 lengths or so, you can still collect upwards of 200 stars per run, especially if you get lucky and find plenty of rich planets.
