Salmon are known for flopping up a stream in order to lay eggs. In Alexander Johansson’s brand new mobile game called Corporate Salmon, however, you will be flopping your way up the financial ladder to hatch investment eggs. It is a funny game that takes popular finance concepts literally in one of the weirdest arcade games ever made in the history of iOS. In this game, you will control a salmon and make it flop to the top of the financial escalator to collect coins and money along the way. Be careful of the slippery staff, or you will end up falling off the escalator. If you fall, you can drop by Suit Yourself to dress up your salmon, and start over. You will need to collect power ups and jump over profit lines to make it to the top. Make sure you read our list of Corporate Salmon tips, tricks and cheats in order to become the boss of Fall Street!
1. Practice Your Jump
We weren’t kidding when we said the game takes some things literally. Your salmon will really need to jump and flop up the steps of the financial escalator. It may not sound that difficult but when you realize that you don’t have actual feet to jump with, you will learn just how hard it really is. It takes a lot of practice to master flopping up correctly in order to make it to the next step. The best spot for jumping is the top left corner of each step. This will give you just the right distance for making your next jump. Landing to close to the wall of the next step will make you bump your head off it instead of launching, so pay attention to your position before jump.
2. When In Doubt, Button Mash
If after several hours of practice, you still can’t get your jumps right, don’t worry. You can still make it to the top by furiously mashing on the screen. This will make your salmon flop around a lot, eventually making it to where he needs to go. You will also be able to avoid any competitor salmon flopping around the steps this way. Of course, this tactic can be exhausting, and you may not be able to sustain it for a long time, but it is an alternate way if you really can’t jump properly.
3. There Are Other Ways To Win
You can make it up the corporate ladder by beating levels. However, there is an alternate way even if you are stuck in a level. You just need to keep playing the game in order to get more experience. Once you fill up the experience bar, you will be promoted to the next position. This will allow you to move on to the next level without completing the previous one. In this sense, you could potentially finish the entire game without beating the levels.
4. Spoiler Alert: The CEO Level
After you get promoted several times, you will eventually become the CEO. Once you are the CEO, you will have your own office at the top of the building. You will then go face to face with the nemesis of all salmon: a bear. The bear will chase you through the level, and you will have to once again tap furiously in order to get away. You will know you have successfully run away from the bear when you see your salmon jump out the office window. This ends the game and you will return to the main menu. You can now start over, but you will have the ability to choose any level you want.
5. Unlock New Suits
The game’s costume store is called Suit Yourself. Here you can purchase different costumes for your salmon. You will need a lot of money to unlock them all as each new costume you buy costs more than the previous one. When you complete the game, you will be able to unlock the natural suit. The most expensive suit in the game, however, is the million-dollar suit. Suits do not have any impact on your gameplay, but they are fun things to aim for.
Climbing the financial escalator isn’t easy, but with the help of our Corporate Salmon strategy guide, you will make it to the top in no time!
