Flex Run 3D is a game about changing your shape to fit through narrow gaps. It’s like doing extreme yoga on a conveyor belt covered in furniture, and it can be quite tricky if you’re not sure what you’re doing. 

So we’ve written this guide. It’s packed full of all the strategies we’ve picked up during our time with the game, and now we’re sharing them with you. Follow these suggestions and you’ll find yourself literally bending over backwards to win. 

Whether this is your first time flex running, or you’ve already done a slow cartwheel over a sofa, there’s going to be something to help you out. So let’s do this – here are the best hints, tips and cheats for Flex Run 3D. 

Watch your shadow

Keep an eye on your shadow – it’ll show you where you are in relation to the next obstacle. It’s a really handy way of seeing whether you’re going to hit anything when the next group of items passes by. If your shadow isn’t hitting anything, your body won’t either. 

Go for green

In the last section of the level, you need to pull specific shapes to get through the gaps. You don’t have to be exact, though – you just need the outline around the gap to turn green and you’re going to make it through. Watch for the change of color and you’ll definitely get through. 

Check your moves

There are different move sets, and you’ll need to change the way you play depending on the shapes you’re currently able to make. Look at your starting position and you’ll usually have a good idea of what you’re going to be able to do. Remember the different moves and the different starting positions and you’ll do just fine. 

Be careful when the fever kicks in

When your fever kicks in you’ll smash through any obstacles regardless of the shape you’re making. Be careful not to get too reliant on the power, though. When it runs out you can be in real trouble if you’re in the wrong place. Keep making the shapes you need and use the fever as a back-up plan. 

What are the gems for?

Right now, they don’t seem to be for anything. There’s no shop where you can spend them, so they’re more like a score than anything else. Don’t worry about watching videos to increase your haul – just keep playing and having fun.
