Look for the clues
There are always plenty of clues as to which moves you need to be pulling off. Sometimes it’s a picture of the move itself, other times it’s a matching color on the obstacle you’re trying to get past. Look for the clues and you’ll be in the best position to get past an obstacle perfectly.
Upgrade as often as you can
You’ll want to spend your gems on upgrading your skills. There are three different stats you can upgrade and you’ll want to spread your gem spending evenly across them. These are the only things you should be spending your gems on, because they’re going to make you better at the game.
Get your timing right
Just because you’ve got past an obstacle, that doesn’t mean that you’ve nailed it. You need to work on getting your timing perfectly. You’ll know you’ve not quite got things right because the game will say “ok” or “good” instead of perfect and you’ll stumble a bit on the ice. Work on your timing and you’ll soon be getting even better scores.
Tap at the end
When you’ve jumped in the air at the end of a level, you’ll want to tap the screen as frantically as possible. The more you tap, the more gems you’ll get and the more you’ll have to spend on your upgrades. Tap as quickly as you can and, while the rewards aren’t enormous, they’ll start to add up.
Unlock the skaters with videos
Don’t spend your gems on unlocking new skaters – they’re pretty expensive and you’ll want to keep them for spending on upgrades. Instead, if you want to get a new skater, watch the video when you’re offered. You can still get skaters from the store, but like we said they’re very expensive. Watching a video is a bit more time consuming, but it’s better in the long run.
