All the cool people in movies know how to ride jetskis. Now it is your turn! Flippy Race is a unique mobile racing game from the kings of casual gaming, Ketchapp. In the game you take control of your very own jetski as you race through the waters, avoid obstacles, jump on ramps, and collect coins. Spinning your jetski in the air gives you a major speed boost that will let you get ahead of the competition. Using ramps wisely, on the other hand, lets you remain in the air for a long time.
Each race will have you compete against 24 other players, so you can expect things to get pretty intense. Don’t forget to complete the challenge missions as well in order to unlock new jetskis. If you find yourself struggling to win races, just check out our compilation of Flippy Race cheats, tips and tricks below for some much-needed help!
1. Keep On Flipping
One thing you should remember about this new Ketchapp game is that it is all about flipping. The more flips you execute and land properly, the easier it will be for you to win. Flipping once will give you a single-flip boost. Two flips will give you a double-flip boost. Use the higher speed in order to eventually achieve a triple-flip boost that will send your jetski flying across the water!
2. Know Your Jumps
In Flippy Race there are different ways to get your jetski in the air, but they do not have the same effects. Jumping off a wave will send you high enough in the air to allow you to execute a double flip. Ramps would also usually give you the same height. Low ramps, however, will only give you a single-flip boost unless you were already running at high speeds before the jump. Make sure you pay attention to the height of your jump before attempting flips to avoid landing upside down.
3. Always Nail Your Landing
If you took too much of a risk and landed upside down, you will end up failing the round. Your jetski will sink and you will no longer be able to continue the race. The only exception to this is Ducky, a premium character. Landing upside down while using Ducky will allow you to slowly float back up and continue the race. You will lose time, but you will at least have the chance to catch up and complete the round.
Unlocking Ducky will require a one-time purchase worth $1.99. If you don’t want to spend real money, though, you can just watch a video advertisement to unlock him for a single race. You can repeatedly unlock Ducky, but you will have to watch an ad every time you do so.
4. Here’s What You Should Know Before You Upgrade
The coins you pick up during races can be spent to purchase upgrades. Upgrading will increase the coin value of your flips as well as the speed boost you get from them. Before you get excited and spend all your coins on upgrades, however, you should keep in mind that this will affect the way you play the game. Successfully flipping your jetski is all about timing. When you upgrade your speed boost, this will also change the timing of your flips. Make sure you practice a few times after each upgrade in order to adjust your timing. Otherwise, you will end up missing you flips and losing more races.
5. How To Unlock Other Characters
In Flippy Race there are more characters for you to unlock aside from Ducky. These can be unlocked using gems. Visit the vehicle menu to view the list of available characters. If you need more gems, just complete your missions. Each mission you complete will reward you with free gems. New missions become available every time you complete one, so you will be able to collect a lot of gems over time. Keep in mind, though, that Ducky is the only one who won’t crash. All the other characters, regardless of gem cost, will still sink if you land incorrectly.
