Go! Go! CommanderVideo is a new iOS game by Choice Provisions where you get to play as CommanderVideo, a character you may know from BIT.TRIP and Runner2. The game is a single-tap runner, where the only thing you have to do is “jump to survive” and make your way to the castle. As you keep on running, you can collect gold and unlock accessories, compete against your friends and hopefully pass their flag markers, and score more and more points while also unlocking new characters.
This is definitely one of those endless casual games where scoring points and unlocking characters is all you need to be concerned about. However, that doesn’t make those games easier, as you probably may have experienced on other games. So with that being established, let’s take you to some Go! Go! CommanderVideo tips and tricks for extending your run and scoring more points.
1. Make Perfect Jumps
Well, maybe not 100 percent perfect, but you get the idea. When learning the game’s mechanics, the most important thing is to master your jump. Learn when to make small jumps and big jumps; tapping quickly will allow you to do a short jump that can help you make it past smaller gaps. The longer you hold your finger down on the screen, the longer you’ll be jumping; it goes without saying that the length of your jump could be the deciding factor whether you survive longer in a round or bow out early.
2. Collect Gold To Unlock More Goodies
By collecting gold, you can afford more items at the store, such as new hats that CommanderVideo can wear in the game; these are the cheapest in the game’s store. But do these hats and accessories change the way CommanderVideo plays? Unfortunately they don’t – they just make him look different, but otherwise, it’s still the same old CommanderVideo in terms of gameplay.
3. New Characters Don’t Change Gameplay
It will cost you lots more gold to buy new characters for the game. But you should bear in mind that this is a casual game with super-simple gameplay, and that means the new characters you buy and unlock won’t have any special jumping abilities, improved defense, or whatnot. They’ll play the same way as CommanderVideo does, but would only look different. But if we’ve learned something from playing these games, it’s that changing characters or equipping them with new items, even if they don’t change anything in the gameplay, takes away the monotony quite a bit.
4. Don’t Focus Too Much On Collecting Gold
While you still would want to collect gold in the game, you shouldn’t make that the be-all and end-all of your playing this game either. If you focus too much on collecting gold, you may end up making the wrong jump or missing completely on the jump. Most of the time, you’ll end up collecting more gold as you go farther, so it might be better to let it all come naturally.
5. You Can’t Kill All The Bad Guys
Lastly, you will encounter enemies towards the end of levels, but you shouldn’t try to kill them all – jump over them and they won’t bother you at all.
