Pixel Stars: Top Tips, Walkthrough, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Pixel Stars is a new endless runner for the iOS and Android platforms with a 16-bit aesthetic. Your goal is to go as far as you can in each level, unlock new characters, earn coins, and fight for the best high score across the world. The levels get harder as you get farther into the game though, so you’ll have to continually adjust your strategy in order to keep setting records. Read on for some tips and tricks for Pixel Stars!

This is a one-tap game, meaning that every function that you want to do will be included in a simple tap of the screen. Normally, the tap automatically makes you jump; however, if you come up to a corner where you have to turn, then tap on the screen and you will turn automatically. If you come up to an enemy, tap on the screen to kick them out of the way.

Some things will kill you automatically; other things will not. You have to jump onto and/or over platforms sometimes, but if you run into them, you won’t die. You will simply stay still until you tap the screen. Tap quickly, though, because if you spend too much time stuck behind the platform, then you’ll become the victim of the collapsing platforms behind you.

There are many ways to earn coins in this game. Collecting them within the level itself is the most obvious way, along with the free coin prizes that you earn frequently on a time basis. Whenever you get the chance to watch a video in exchange for some free coins, take the offer, so that you can continually rack up coins and pull from the gacha/gumball machine.

Once you collect 100 coins, you will be able to earn a new character. Go to the gacha and take a spin and you’ll pull a random character. The more new characters you unlock, though, the bigger the chance of pulling a duplicate, but they will always cost 100 coins to pull – no increasing prices for you.

Hit the high score screen to compare your score to everyone else on either Google Play or Game Center, depending on what platform you play on. There are no cross-platform comparisons yet, but you can compare your score against everybody else on the same platform that you use.
