Twisty Road Tips, Tricks, and Strategies

Permalink - Posted on 2018-01-20 10:58

twisty road

Argh, Twisty Road! If you’re not looking for something that will challenge your patience, you should probably steer clear of this arcade endurance test. You control a ball rolling along a very, very twisty road. You can steer the ball left and right around tight turns and your goal is to get as far down the road as possible without falling into the void.

Yeah, good luck with that. We’ll try to help:

Doing the twist

If you’ve played other games that involve controlling a ball down a road, like Balls Race, you might at first balk at the control scheme. You don’t direct the ball back and forth with your finger. Rather, you tap one side or the other of the screen to steer it as it goes. You can hold your tap to steer the turn tighter, or tap lightly just to adjust. Mastering the feel of these turns and knowing exactly when to turn and how much is key to surviving for long.

Practice, practice, practice

There isn’t much else to the game and few actual maneuvers you can use to give yourself an advantage. It’s really all about learning how to navigate each turn carefully and accurately. That’s why the biggest key to Twisty Road is practicing often. Early on, it’s not worth it to burn Continues, watching an ad to keep going. If you didn’t travel farther than you could get during a 30-second ad, don’t bother. Later, once you’re farther down the track, you can start using Continues to up your score rather than just trying to get better at the game. Consider the moment using them becomes worth your time your initiation into Twisty Road Mastery.

Jump at your own risk

Okay, I lied. There’s one thing you can do to improve your distance without twisty-roading around, but it’s risky. You can jump off the track and try to land on a piece of it further below.

This is horribly inefficient unless you’re dedicated to practicing it and doing it properly. After you fall off the track, you have a certain amount of time before the screen goes black and you actually Game Over. During that time, if you touch the track again, you’ll be safe. If you fall again, the clock resets, and if you land, you’ll automatically keep going and your score will adjust with the next gate you pass. If you land going the wrong direction, the game will even turn you around!

This can be a way to recover if you fall off accidentally, so it’s good to see how often you can do it during accidental deaths. It’s definitely a risky way to play, though, so I only recommend it if you’ve already mastered Twisty Road as it’s intended to be played and want a greater challenge and higher numbers.

What are we all playing this weekend?

Permalink - Posted on 2018-01-20 10:02


I realise it’s trite to talk about the weather but we had a great bit of snow this week. I live off a main road it’s common to hear drunk people walking past talking, singing, or shouting in the middle of the night – but snow magically calmed some this week. 2am, two people spend a while going on outside my window, one of those halfhearted drunk arguments, but when they suddenly go quiet I worry something has happened. I poke my head out the window and… they’re building a snowman. They’re rolling snowballs around, snapping stickarms off Christmas trees out by the bins, and very quietly building a metre-tall snowman. Eventually they left, and took the snowman with them in their arms. Magical. Thanks, snow. Anyway, something something video games?

What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on.

Genital Jousting’s final cut thrusts into the limelight with story mode

Permalink - Posted on 2018-01-20 09:02

Genital Jousting

Everyone loves a good dick joke, but Broforce studio Free Lives’ Genital Jousting is something else. It’s bizarrely visceral and meaty in a way that comedy schlongs rarely are. It feels a world away from the twirling phalluses of Mount Your Friends, with meat slapping against meat with uncanny gusto, accompanied by some quite unsettling Foley work.

At Free Lives realize this, to some degree, and have attempted to put fears to rest and defuse some difficult questions with an extensive Q&A. It’s a complex, thorny thing and one I’m not especially willing to deep-dive into. What’s less complex is that the game has left early access and properly launched, including a solo story mode, as unusual as that sounds.

Speedrunning Mario has transformed the way I play games

Permalink - Posted on 2018-01-20 08:09

We all know about Usain Bolt and his ludicrous speed over 100 metres. He currently holds the record with 9.58 seconds. Paula Radcliffe set the fastest women's marathon at 2 hours, 15 minutes and 25 seconds. In sports, world records mean acclaim and the chance to be recognised as the best in the business. But human obsession over world records isn't limited to the track or the sportsfield. Tony Glover is a name you won't likely be aware of unless you're into horticultural endeavours; he holds the record for growing the world's heaviest onion at 8.5kg. You maybe haven't heard of Silvio Sabba, an Italian man who aims to hold as many records as possible. He currently has around 70 titles to his name, including most clothes pegs attached to his face in one minute (51), most AA batteries held in one hand (48) and most CDs balanced on one finger (255).

Video games are no stranger to the setting and breaking of records - there's even a yearly book dedicated to the achievements of the industry. And there's one facet of games that shines particularly brightly here - speedrunning. Eurogamer reports on speedrunning fairly regularly, and it's not hard to see why. A speedrunner attempts to finish a video game in the fastest time possible. Events are held across the world for marathon sessions, usually raising money for charity. Twitch and YouTube are abuzz with new and old runners trying ludicrous things, and every few weeks you hear of someone who battled through Dark Souls in record time using a Guitar Hero controller, or someone who played through Zelda blindfolded. So what's it like when the pad is in your hand and the clock is ticking? What's the true appeal of speedrunning, and how does it change the way you see games?

Speedrunning didn't fully capture my attention until I ventured onto YouTube a few years back to look for tips for Spelunky. I wanted guidance regarding how to reach the Hell level, and I needed to see what an 'Eggplant run' was. As with explorations on YouTube, I immediately fell down a rabbit hole; hours later I was still sat, cross-legged, childlike, watching as someone wrapped up an entire Spelunky run in a matter of minutes. Next, Games Done Quick rolled around and a guy called Kinnijup was scheduled to run Spelunky. I wasn't just impressed with his skills, I was stunned - he could finish the game in under five minutes, without collecting any gold! I followed him on Twitch and listened out for names of other runners; within two weeks I was watching everything I could.
