Rocket Sky! is a new iOS and Android game where you launch rockets into outer space, shoot for as long of a distance as you can, and earn money for doing so. You can upgrade your rocket for longer and longer expeditions, unlock new rockets, and even make it to new planets by going far enough into outer space.
It’s not just upgrades and money that matters, though. Using the right timing and the right strategy will help you to launch a longer expedition. Between upgrades and accelerating at the right time, you can maximize the length of your run.

Earlier on in the game, you will just be able to hold the screen the entire time without worrying about overheating.
As you increase your fuel quantity, though, you will be in danger of blowing up your rocket if you hold down on the screen for too long and overheat your engines. To prevent this, you have to let off of the screen to cool down the engines.
Knowing when to let off and went to put your finger back down is the key to maximizing your distance.
At the top of the left-hand gauge, you will have a warning bar, and in the top quadrant of it will be a snowflake icon, indicating that this is where you need to start cooling it down.
The best timing of that we have discovered is to hold down on the screen until the left bar almost reaches the top. Then let go and let the bar drop just below the snowflake quadrant.
Once it does, then press down on the screen again until it rises almost to the top. Repeat as often as your fuel level that will allow you to.
You have four different upgrades that you can purchase. The speed upgrade increases the maximum speed of your rocket, as well as the speed of acceleration from a dead stop. The fuel upgrade increases your fuel capacity, lengthening your run.
Upgrade to your earnings to increase the amount of money that you earn for the distance that you fly. And of course, upgrade your offline income to earn even more money while you’re not playing.
The offline income is the easiest one to overlook, but it’s arguably the most important one. After a few upgrades, the amount of money added per upgrade it will increase exponentially.
Keep upgrading it to eventually earn 50, 100, 200, or more per minute that you’re offline. Then when you come back after a long period, you’ll get a massive amount of money.
Make sure that you have a strong internet connection whenever you come back from being offline, and log into the game again. You can instantly double your offline income by watching an advertisement video.
Once the video finishes, your cash will double instantly. The same is also true for doubling the cash earned during each launch.
This game has an unusually large amount of ads. If you want to get rid of them, just set the game into airplane mode and then start playing, and the ads will quit loading.
If you do this, though, you won’t be able to double your income from any of your launches. Plus, you will also inconvenience yourself by not being able to take phone calls or do anything else.
