Run Ball is a new endless game for the iOS and Android where you play as a rolling ball trying to keep up with the twists, turns, and obstacles present on a spinning helix platform group. Your goal is to get as high of a score as you can, while staying alive for as long as you can and unlocking more and more new balls. Read on for some tips and tricks for Run Ball – Jump on Helix Road!
Unlike most games of this type, where you can only jump one height and length, you can jump for a longer or shorter time in this game depending on how long you press down on the screen for. Tap on the screen for a short jump, hold it down for awhile in order to do a longer jump, and then there are various levels of jump in between that you can do as well.
Use these jumps to clear every obstacle that you can, and also to collect gems. Once you hit a certain point in the level, you’ll jump on a trampoline that will send you in the other direction, and then the colors of the stage will change. From this point, the game will be slightly faster. The higher your score gets, the more times you will change colors and directions.
You can use those crystals to unlock new balls. Each new ball takes 100 to unlock, but there are some balls that can be unlocked in other ways besides spending gems on them. Two balls can be unlocked by getting a high score on specific levels. Two of them can be unlocked by scoring 200 or 300 points, while 12 of them can each be unlocked specifically by watching three advertisement videos per ball.
To increase your score as quickly as possible, grab the white targets on the ground and don’t miss a single one of them. You get one more point for each of them in a row that you grab (the first in a row is 1 point, the eighth in a row is 8 points, the sixteenth in a row is 16 points, and so on), so if you get a long streak going, you could very quickly increase your maximum score.
If you are playing the game with a data connection, then you have the best chance possible at earning a high score. Once you lose at a round you can watch an advertisement video in order to continue from where you left off. The obstacle in front of you will disappear, but all of the other obstacles in front of it will stay around, so be prepared to move again.
