1. Upgrade Your Flip Coins
No matter how skilled you are, you can only go so far on a basic boat. You need to spend the money you earn by purchasing upgrades. There are four different upgrades available for your boat: Speed, Fuel Tank Capacity, Flip Coins, and Offline Earnings. Since you only have limited resources, it is best if you prioritize Flip Coins in the beginning. It increases the amount you earn from flipping your boat. That means you will have more money to spend on other upgrades. Keep in mind that upgrades get more expensive as the upgrade level increases. Once the Flip Coins upgrade becomes too expensive, you can start investing some more in other categories.
2. Nail Your Landing
As your speed increases, it will become more difficult to control your boat. Make sure you pay attention to how your boat lands, especially after a big jump. If you are too fast, your boat will tend to bounce off a bit more upon landing. You need to be careful when this happens because you want to avoid accidentally flipping over. If you feel like you bounced off too much after landing, you can try executing a full flip in order to nail that landing while making a bit of money at the same time.
3. Trigger Fever Mode
When you land flat on the hull of your boat, you accomplish a perfect landing. Aside from being a great position to land in since it is the most stable, a perfect landing also gives you more fuel. On top of that, executing multiple perfect landings in a row will trigger Fever Mode. While it is active, your speed and jumping height greatly increases, allowing you to perform more flips in a single jump.
4. Skip The Tank Capacity Upgrade
The Fuel Tank Capacity upgrade for your boat sounds like a great idea in writing. If you think about it, however, you will realize you don’t have much use for it. You will wipe out most of the time even before you run out of fuel. That means there is no point in increasing the capacity of a tank that you are not able to empty in the first place. Once you get better at handling your boat, and it comes to the point where you keep running out of fuel, that’s the time for you to start investing in this upgrade.
5. Travel Greater Distances
As you progress in the game, you will be able to travel further thanks to your upgrades. You can then start thinking about seriously aiming for some distance records. If you are going for the longest distance possible, you will want to upgrade your boat speed as much as you can. A faster boat will able to hit record distances more quickly. As mentioned above, you should also start investing in your fuel tank once you start running out of gas during your runs. These two upgrades combined will help you reach the farthest possible distance in the game. If you want to know what your best score is, you can check it out right below your current score.
