Crossy Road Cheats and Tips
1. Look ahead, not at your character
Focusing on your character means you can’t see what’s coming in front of you. Sometimes I even slightly defocus my eyes so I get a good view of everything in front of me. Getting across one lane of traffic at a time makes for slow movement. And you’ll more than likely get hit before you get very far. Instead, think at least 3 steps ahead.
2. Tap behind your character, not in front or too far to either side
While everyone has to find a way to play that’s comfortable for them, make sure that you’re tapping the screen behind your character in a way that doesn’t obscure your view. Not only that, if you tap too far to one side or the other, the game may register it as a side swipe instead. I typically try and tap directly below and towards the bottom of the screen. This ensures that I don’t obscure my view and that taps aren’t recognized as side steps.
3. Don’t be afraid to backtrack
Sometimes you back yourself into a corner or realize that you don’t have enough time to cross. Crossy Road allows you to backtrack and turn around. Whether you’re stuck around the side of a hedge or you realize after stepping into traffic that you don’t have time to cross, just turn around and wait for a better opportunity. Swiping sideways to outrun a truck or a train rarely ever works. Just backtrack instead.
4. Side swipe to save some time with slower lanes of traffic
Sometimes a lane of traffic moves slower than others and you find yourself wasting time waiting on it. Before the hawk comes into view and swoops you up, side swipe the opposite direction of that particular lane so you can cross quicker. This works for slow logs coming down the river as well.
5. Jump as close to the back of cars and trucks as you can
When you start to cross lanes of traffic, jump immediately after the cars pass. This ensures you have the most time between cars to get to the next lane. Essentially, you want to hug as close to the bumpers of passing cars as you can. That way if you need to turn around or make a split decision, you have more time to do so.
