6 Tips & Tricks for Mr Jump
If you struggle guiding Mr Jump through his running paths, follow the following advices and complete the levels of this addictive iOS game:
1. Detach and Focus: If you wanna have success with Mr Jump you need to detach from what you’re doing and thinking. The game has to become your one and only focus solely. I personally use headphones and even end up turning Airplane Mode on, to make sure that I avoid any alerts that could startle Mr Jump into the abyss.
2. Perfect Taps: To make your life easier tap the screen, using your main hand. That the left for lefties and right for righties. The location of your tap is also important, try to press somewhere in the lower part of the screen, so that you don’t diminish your view on the upcoming obstacles. The intensity of the tap shouldn’t be to high either, because if you press hard, you need more time to lift your finger and tap again, which could prove fatal for Mr Jump!
3. Practice Makes Perfect Be ready to play tens and hundreds of attempts before you’ll be able to complete a level. You’ll end up memorizing the obstacles and be ready to tackle obstacles before they appear on your screen. Practice also improves your hand-eye coordination and you’ll eventually have your breakthrough.
4. Train Your Timing: After you get experienced you’ll be able to feel the perfect timing for your taps. In the critical points of the path you have only a single winning taping pattern and here is where timing becomes most important. Estimate the jumping distance correctly and you’ll avoid jumping too soon and landing short, or leaping too late and landing long.
5. Solve Traps: As mentioned above each level has a few key points, or traps, which require perfect timing and jumping combinations. The more you’ll practice, the better you’ll get used to passing those critical obstacles and advancing deeper in the round.
6. Relax and Enjoy: Always remember that this is a game and you’re playing to relax yourself and detach from everyday worries. Enjoy it or forget it. If you get tight because you don’t manage to progress you’ll only make it worse. Don’t forge to breathe in and out!
