Doodle Jump Race Cheats And Tips
Fans of the Doodle Jump games will find a nice little surprise on the App Store this week with a new Race entry that allows you to compete against friends in a winner-take-all dash to the finish. Up to four people can take part in a race at one time, and you'll need to avoid incoming obstacles in order to achieve a first place victory.
Here are some tips that will help you get started in your Doodle run.
How do I play Doodle Jump Race?
It's a simple one-touch control scheme. You need to hold down your finger on the screen to thrust your alien character into the air, and then let go to drop them back down again.
However, it's an online multiplayer game, so you'll also need access to a Wi-Fi connection and your GameCenter friend list, although you can also race against random players. Fortunately, our test runs were smooth, so you should have no trouble finding fellow Doodle-ers to compete against.
What's the goal of Doodle Jump Race?
The goal is to win the race from start to finish. You'll begin at one point of the course, and then have to race through a series of gateways in order to reach the finish line at the other end. Hitting an object doesn't mean a loss, either - you'll simply bounce off it and work your way through the open gap to continue. Obviously, the less collisions you have, the better chance of winning the race.
Think of it as a high-speed multiplayer Flappy Bird.
Can I level up in Doodle Jump Race?
Yes, but it's mostly for popularity sake. You won't unlock new Doodle characters or bonus tracks, but you'll be able to show players just how devoted you are to racing aliens around.
What's the best way to win races in Doodle Jump Race?
The best thing you can do is keep an eye out for obstacles ahead of you and prepare for them accordingly. Keep a finger on your thrust technique and make your way through gates successively, and you'll be able to keep ahead of other racers behind you. Even if you hit something, just try to get through the gap and back into the rhythm. Eventually, you'll get first place wins in no time. Even if you don't, it's easy to hop back into a race and try again.
Do I need to pay for anything in Doodle Jump Race?
Well, aside from your Wi-Fi network connection, no. The game doesn't feature any Microtransactions to speak of, and the races run smoothly without the need for any upgrades. There are occasional pop-up ads and trailers that you'll have to deal with - it is free-to-play, after all - but overall it's a pretty sweet deal.
