How To Unlock ALL Secret Characters In Crossy Road – 5 Tips For Novice Players in 2023

Secret Characters In Crossy Road

5 Tips For Beginners in 2023

Embarking on the journey to unlock all the secret characters in Crossy Road can be an exhilarating adventure. Here are 5 tips to help beginners navigate this exciting quest.

1. Ensure Your Device is in Optimal Condition

The first step to success in Crossy Road is to ensure your device is running smoothly. Any lag or delay can lead to an untimely demise in the game. Close any unnecessary apps that might be consuming your device’s RAM memory. This will help you avoid falling into the river or getting hit by a car or train.

2. Use the Pause Button Strategically

As you progress in the game, the levels start to speed up. It’s easy to feel the pressure to act quickly but remember, this is a trick the game is playing on you. When things heat up, hit the pause button. Make sure you’re on safe terrain, not on a train track or in the middle of a busy street. Take a moment to relax, then dive back into the game with a clear mind.

3. Keep Your Screen Clear

In Crossy Road, it’s essential to see incoming obstacles. If you’re used to holding your phone in landscape mode with your fingers on the sides of the screen, try a different approach. Keep your screen free of hands and fingers so you can see if a fast car or train is approaching. Make it a habit to tap on the character or behind it.

4. Adapt to Different Obstacles and Terrains

Each obstacle in Crossy Road poses a unique challenge. For cars, tap the screen as soon as a car has passed. For trains, cross the tracks as quickly as possible. When it comes to rivers, stick to the middle of the screen. Remember, you can move in all four directions – forward, backward, left, and right. Use this to your advantage when navigating obstacles.

5. Plan Ahead and Pay Attention to Details

Always look at the route and obstacles, not just at your character. If there’s a river coming up soon, bring your character to the middle of the screen. Sometimes, if you look ahead, you might notice a pattern in the way cars, trains, or logs move. Use this to your advantage.

Remember, unlocking all the secret characters in Crossy Road is a journey, not a race. Take your time, learn from your mistakes, and most importantly, have fun! With these tips in mind, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a Crossy Road Master!
