Snow Roll is a devilish endless runner very much in the vein of Flappy Bird. It revels in its dastardly level of difficulty, and doesn’t really care how angry you get at it as it knows you’ll keep coming back for more.

You may be a sucker for punishment, but you don’t have to make things needlessly difficult. Follow these tips to take the edge off!

Avoid playing too many games back to back

Snow Roll doesn’t have any timers, meaning you can play as much of it as you can stand. However, your snowballs from previous games stay on the field, adding an increasing number of unnecessary obstacles the more times you die in a row.

This really amps up the difficulty, which is not something you need in a game like this. Take a break to let your failed snow balls melt before giving it another shot.

Keep your movements short and steady

Even the smallest mistake can send your little penguin sailing into a tree. Be sure to use short taps, and keep your ball rolling in straight, slight movements. Slow and steady wins the race, after all.

Use both hands

Each new game creates a fresh, randomly generated course so it’s impossible to memorise where all of the obstacles are.

To better adapt to your ever-changing surroundings, use both fingers to control your snow ball. This will give you a better response time, in turn keeping you alive longer so you can really rack up that score.

Snow Roll can be punishing, but these tactics should help your little penguin survive for longer. This is a game that requires a good deal of patience, and some practice doesn’t hurt either.

Stick with it and you’ll move on from rolling in snow drifts to rolling in coins sooner than you think.
