Evolution Highway Cheats And Tips
Become a better hunter with our guide to the game.
Evolution Highway probably won't win you over like some of the bigger-name endless runners on the App Store, but it's a fun enough game for those looking for something new to play, as you can see in our review.
Here are some tips to help get you get more out of your next run.
What dinosaurs can I attack in Evolution Highway?
There are three different types of dinosaurs in the game - green, red and blue. Green ones, like pterodactyls, can be jumped on if you want to earn a coin bonus, but you don't want to run into them directly while you're on foot. Take them out from the air.
The next ones you'll come across are red. You'll want to jump over these or go to a lower platform to avoid them. They can't take any sort of damage though.
Finally, blue dinosaurs are the largest ones in the game and can't be avoided by simply jumping. Instead, you'll want to move to a higher or lower platform to get out of their way.
What other obstacles should I watch out for in Evolution Highway?
The first things to watch out for are time vortexes. When you see these, just move to a higher or lower platform, otherwise you'll get sucked right in and lose your turn. On occasion, you'll also see fiery rocks come crashing down from the sky. Whenever one gets ready to crash on you, jump! You'll soar right over it, and continue your run unharmed.
What does collecting "B-O-N-U-S" letters do in Evolution Highway?
These letters appear floating near the top part of the screen. If you can jump up and collect them, you'll eventually spell out the word "B-O-N-U-S," which will take you to a vortex mini-game.
How does the vortex mini-game work in Evolution Highway?
In this mini-game, you'll have to find the coins which are hidden in one of three vortexes that appear on the screen. You'll need some good eyesight and concentration to keep track of which vortex holds the coins, but if you guess right, you'll add them to your collection.
How do Challenges work in Evolution Highway?
Challenges are pre-set goals for each stage, each one of which rewards you with a plentiful coin bonus. As an example, if you collect 500 coins in one run, you'll be rewarded with an extra 15,000 coins. These change often in the game, so pay attention to any instructions you're given, and try to complete them whenever you can.
How does the Viking Helmet power-up work in Evolution Highway?
This helmet temporarily protects you from enemies of all colors once you've acquired it. Keep an eye on its meter though, because once time runs out you'll be vulnerable again.
How does the Time Machine power-up work in Evolution Highway?
This slows down time for a few seconds while you keep full control of your character, allowing you to time your jumps better, and collect more coins in the process.
How does the Coins Magnet power-up work in Evolution Highway?
Exactly as you'd expect. Picking this up will immediately draw any coins in your vicinity towards your character.
How does the Tesla power-up work in Evolution Highway?
This zaps any enemies that get within your range, whether they're green, red or blue. Make sure you have enough time left on your meter before you go charging into an enemy though, otherwise you've had it.
How does the Shield power-up work in Evolution Highway?
This temporarily protects you from taking any damage at all in a stage, including painful debris that would otherwise have hurt you badly.
How does the Rocket power-up work in Evolution Highway?
This boosts you further into your run by a significant amount, and also allows you to plow right through anything lying in your path. You're back on your own once it runs out of juice, though.
How do I increase the strength of power-ups?
You can spent approximately 500 coins or so increasing the length of time that each power-up lasts.
What other goodies can I unlock for my character?
You can spend about 25,000 coins to unlock alternative outfits for your male and female characters, including Santa Claus, Evo Police Department, Clownie, Zombielicious and several others. Check out the shop and see what different outfits are available. Just bear in mind that they don't improve your abilities in any way - so think about working on your power-ups first.
