Speed of Light (iOS/Android) Tips, Tricks, Cheats, and Strategy Guide

Dave and Busters is working on bringing its classic ticket-earner games to the iOS and Android platforms, and one of the first to make the transition is Speed of Light. In this game your goal is to hit the lit-up lights as quickly as possible, but you have to avoid all kinds of obstacles as well. The better you do and the less of them that you miss, the more stars you get. Read on for some tips and tricks for Speed of Light!

You can use the time cheat on your phone or tablet if you run out of lives and you want to get them back right away for free. Set the time ahead by 15 minutes times however many lives you’ve lost. Then go to the game and they will all be restored. After that you can set the time back to normal and then go back to the game, and all of your lives will still be there.

Play with more than one finger. This is pretty much mandatory in order to keep up with the insane speed of some of the stages. You play with only one finger, and you will fall behind very quickly. The more fingers, the better. iPads will make it easier to play with more than two fingers, as well.

Don’t tap outside of the circle, and tap right in the middle of the circle. Even tapping on the outer edge of the circle will sometimes cause the tap to not read properly, causing you to have an errant tap and to lose your multiplier. So tap as close to the center of each circle as you can.

Much of the reason for this is that you can purchase a tap detection power-up for 99 cents. You can also purchase a power up to add time to how long the targets light up for, and you can purchase 15 extra seconds on the clock, making it much easier to get a high enough score to earn three stars.

You can play the game offline all that you want to. However, if you do, you will not earn Dave and Busters points. Play the game while you are connected to an internet signal, and you will earn Dave and Busters points.
