About the game
The theme of Crossy Road is to cross an endless highway or series of roads and avoid obstacles as far as possible without dying. The player plays as a chosen character and must tap to go forward or swipe the screen in the appropriate direction to move the character horizontally. The game consists of an endless series of obstacles in a set path, such as rivers, cars, and trains. The player must time movements correctly in order to pass these obstacles without dying.
Crossy road is available for iOS, tvOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and Series 30+ Sky Q.
Tips and tricks:
The following are tips and tricks for the smooth gameplay.
- Look ahead instead of 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.
- Sideswipe 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, sideswipe the opposite direction of that particular lane so you can cross quicker. This works for slow logs coming down the river as well.
- Don’t miss opportunities for sprints
There are many instances in Crossy Road where you can sprint across many lanes of traffic at a time. This is the easiest way to get to a high score faster. Recognizing these opportunities is key and goes along with my very first tip. Instead of concentrating on what’s directly in front of you, look at the entire gameplay area. When you see an opening in a freeway, tap like crazy. Just be careful that you don’t overshoot and end up in oncoming traffic on the other side.
