Height or bulk?

In the end, it doesn’t really matter if you’re getting taller or wider. Both will act as defense when you come up against the railings that lead to the boss. Instead of worrying about which one you should add to, think about our next strategy instead.

Go for the biggest number

You should always go through the gate that’s getting you the biggest gain. The more you add to your body, in any direction, the better you’re going to do at the end of the level. Look for the way to gain the most and always try and head in that direction.

You can stop

If you lift your finger off the screen, you’re going to stop moving. This can come in really handy, especially when you come up against moving obstacles. Pause for a moment and watch the patterns, then start moving again when the time is right to avoid taking any damage.

Upgrade smart

You should spend your gems on upgrading your stats. Focus on your starting size – upping your height and your heft regularly. You should also add a few levels to your speed, but only if you’ve got some gems left over after adding to the other stats. The bigger you are, the better you’ll do.

Gems are key

You should try and grab as many gems as you can as you play. That doesn’t mean watching videos, just picking up any that you see on the level. The more gems, the more you can upgrade, the more likely you are to take down the boss and earn even more gems.
