Captain Rocket is another one of those super-casual, super-simple titles from Ketchapp, one of the recognized leaders in casual gaming for mobile users. Like most of its titles, Captain Rocket is designed for iOS and Android devices alike. A quick look at the game description probably won’t tell you too much – Captain Rocket stole some documents from an enemy base, and has to bring those documents to his creator. Then again, it might, because that’s essentially what you have to do – return to the mother ship by jumping over rockets. It’s another one of those Flappy Bird-esque titles where the only objective is to get the highest possible score. And we’re here to help you with that, through the following Captain Rocket cheats, tips and tricks.
1. There Are No Power-Ups
This is a trademark of those Flappy Bird-esque games and any game from Ketchapp for that matter. In Captain Rocket, there are no power-ups to help your character become invincible for a temporary period of time, to make him move slower, to make the rockets disappear briefly, etc. It’s as simple as dodging the rockets and returning to the mother ship, wherever it may be.
2. You Only Live Once
Likewise, this is another hallmark of these titles – YOLO definitely applies here because once you hit an obstacle, that’s it. You’re done. Game over. And there’s no way to get extra lives either by watching videos or completing daily challenges. To put it succinctly, that’s not how Ketchapp rolls.
3. Try Skipping One Rocket Per Jump
It may actually be counterproductive for you to jump from one rocket to the next one. Instead, you can try “rocket hopping,” which means skipping one rocket per jump you take. This may take a bit of practice, but as long as you can jump over one rocket and land on the next rocket, you’re on the right track.
4. Play On The High Side Of The Screen
When playing Captain Rocket, it’s a sound rule of thumb to stay as high as possible, because it could become dangerous if you stay too low for too long. That could be very dangerous and cause you to lose the game when you bump into a passing rocket. And you definitely want to stay high if you want your score to be high, or to be more exact, better than your old high score.
5. Play Without Ads If You’re Gunning For A High Score
If you’re “practicing,” or not playing too seriously, then we advise you to leave your Internet connection on and help the developers by letting them display their ads. But if you really want to beat your old high score, then that’s when you can switch your phone to airplane mode or turn off your Wi-Fi – we know those ads can be a big distraction, so playing without them from time to time is alright in our book.
6. Don’t Chase The Top Leaderboard Scores
This is our last tip, and one that could save you a lot of headaches. A lot of the high scores on the Game Center or Google Play are hacked, and you don’t want to chase those ones – scroll a bit further down and you’re sure to see a lot of scores you can realistically beat out, just as long as you practice well, but not to the point of draining yourself out.
