Jumpy Jack High Score 17, Plus Tips To Improve Your Score
Marty McFly doesn't have anything on Jumpy Jack.
These Flappy Bird clones are never ending. Now we have Jumpy Jack, RedBit Games' gnarly skateboarding game. In it, you play a skateboarding rebel named Jack. If you hit any of the brick walls, your run is over. Nothing as bad as MTV's Scarred. You just take a shot to your pride and try again.
This game is ridiculously tough, especially with the floaty control scheme, but here are some tips that'll help you get through it.
Get Used to the Controls
The first thing you'll need to do with a game such as this is get used to the control scheme. You hold your finger down on the screen to get Jack to jump upward, and remove it to have him float downward. It's important to learn how long to hold your finger down for these jumps like it's clones this game requires keen reflexes and accurate precision to jump over brick walls.
Always Look Ahead
When it comes to successfully soaring over walls, you must always look ahead to gauge how long you have to keep your finger pressed for the next jump. You can do this by practicing and counting the seconds your finger is pressed for each jump. Try to work on your timing and eventually you'll get the hang of the game.
Don't Give Up
Jumpy Jack is one of those games that will just test your patience. You're going to crash like crazy the first three or four (or hundred) times, but that's just part of the learning curve. Just keep up with it and continue to try and score better runs. If you still can't get past the first set, don't get frustrated. You're not alone.
Know When to Take a Break
When it comes to playing a game like Jumping Jack, you don't want to grind your fingers to the screen for prolonged sessions, because chances are you'll become completely frustrated and maybe even damage your smartphone or tablet in the process. Don't be afraid to take breaks every once in a while, calm yourself down and try the game again. In addition, you'll be able to rest up your fingers, which will cramp and lose circulation over time with all the screen tapping. Chillax.
Realize that You're Going to Crash...Often
You need to understand something with Jumpy Jack, and it's the same logic that came with Ironpants and Dark Souls - you're not going to succeed very often. This is a game that comes with a heinous learning curve, and even if you think you've gotten the hang of it, you'll wipeout by the fourth or fifth wall. This game will chew you up and spit you out. Persistent gamers will be rewarded. Everyone else...well, maybe you should play something a lot easier like Guess the 90s or something.
