Pop the Ice: Top Tips, Walkthrough, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Pop the Ice is a new level-based puzzle game by Orangenose Studios for the iOS and Android platforms where your goal is to make it all the way to the top of the level. When you tap the screen your unseen protagonist pounds his or her fist on the table, sending the ice cube flying upward and into the next cup. Read on for some tips and tricks for Pop the Ice!

Your goal is to pop the ice up to the next cup, but there is no time limit for how quickly you’re supposed to do it. Take as long as you need so that you can focus and concentrate and make the most accurate move possible. Aim should be easy, though, because (at least at first) the ice always goes straight upward when you tap the screen.

As you go to later levels, more challenges will begin to appear. For example, when you see debris blowing sideways on the same level as a cup, that’s a sign that there will be wind. So when there’s wind, let the ice go about one cup-length away from the cup, in the direction that the wind is coming from, so that the wind blows the ice straight into the cup.

The leaning glass appears once you beat the Desert Dawn levels. With this one, the glass tilts whenever it changes direction, so you have to launch the ice two cup-lengths away from the next cup in order to properly aim it into the cup. Combine this with low-light situations, and levels can become extremely, extremely challenging.

High-speed cups can add to the challenge significantly, especially when combined with wind or low-light situations. Once you come across narrow cups, they will initially have slow cups below them to make it easy for you to get used to it. However, it won’t be long before you get fast cups AND narrow cups paired together, making them extremely tough to aim properly.

If you want to get the ads to quit appearing, the main way to do so is to purchase the no-ads option – which hasn’t yet been added to the game, but can be expected to be added later. If you can’t afford it or the option is not yet in the game, then put your device into airplane mode and then go back to the game, and the ads will quit appearing.
