Stay In The Line Tips And Cheats

Worried that you'll wipe out? We'll keep you in line.
How do I stay in the line?
It's similar to classic multi-touch games. The objective is to slide your finger along the touchpad area on the bottom of the screen, moving left and right to keep the ball in the center of the moving pathway. We discovered a strategy to help keep you in the game a bit longer. Instead of swiping your finger from left to right on the designated area of the iPhone screen, place your thumb on the actual ball and move your thumb in sync with the line. This way, you're not just reacting to the changes on the screen, you're going with the flow following the line with your thumb.
How do I stay in the curved line?
It might seem difficult at first, but you want to trace the line with your thumb. Don't treat curved lines as you would a straight one. The game isn't designed to react the same way with the aforementioned technique. Treat the curved line like an angled one. Meaning there is a brief pause when taking the curve.
Once you've mastered these strategies, you'll go on some great runs and see your score increase.
