The game receives regular love from the developers and they pay close attention to the suggestions and criticism from players striving to always maintain and increase the standard of this game.

Mmm Fingers 2 is one of the rare purely swipe to play arcade style games available both for Apple and Android operating devices that also has a strategy and pattern recognition based gameplay element in it. The game stems from browser versions of the game with the same concept that got immense popularity in a relatively short amount of time on the internet. Introduced in an age where flash gaming was the latest thing, the original mouse controlled swiping arcade based flash games quickly gained a loyal and devoted player base through the unique and extremely addictive gameplay. The mobile game Mmm Fingers 2 basically continues upon the original legacy of strategy and pattern based browser games and incorporates all the elements of gameplay in addition to providing a funky looking and highly interactive user interface. Where the original swiping arcade based browser games were just a mindless mess of obstacles and enemies where the main objective was to kill as many creatures as you can, the mobile games like Mmm Fingers 2 build upon an interesting storyline and take you on an adventure as you compete with your friends on Facebook for the title of the Tastiest and most nimble Fingers in Mmm Fingers 2!
The gameplay mechanics of Mmm Fingers 2 are very straightforward and the game is designed to be played by players of all ages and genders so naturally the difficulty level is quite low. However, earning the title of Ultimate Survivor in the game is something reserved only for the most dedicated and passionate players. The game has an exponential reward rate but that comes coupled with an even more sharply increasing difficulty as you move ahead in the game so you always have to stay one step ahead of the artificial intelligence in the game if you plan to go much further than your friends and family have been able to reach.
Purchasing in game items or the Golden Coins as they are referred to in Mmm Fingers 2 is also an alternative option for those players whose fingers start aching from swiping on the screen too much or if you believe that the video advertisements after each level are too annoying for you, you can remove ads permanently for a small payment of $1.99. Therefore, if you are not a pay to play player and really want to work your way up to the top, this guide includes some tips on how to proceed in order to reap the best rewards, level up the fastest and follow the chosen path to becoming the Ultimate Finger Warrior in Mmm Fingers 2!
1. Know Your Enemies
In Mmm Fingers 2, there is an ensemble of many different kinds of monsters and enemies that will do their best to stop you from reaching as far as you can in the game. “Spinning” monsters are the characters which can only attack physically and from a very close range. These characters usually spin around about their axis and cannot move vertically or horizontally. They also have a very high attack power and abilities and you are as good as dead if you manage to come too close to them during any stage in the game. Their lack of range is usually compensated for by their large health points and good defensive as well as offensive skills so you will need to be aware of these spinning monsters at all times while playing Mmm Fingers 2.
Similarly there are “Ranged” monsters in the game which can attack from different distances varying from character to character in the game and are a much greater threat because they can reach you no matter how far you are from the monster on the screen. The Ranged monsters are found at the higher stages after level 6 and most of them have special abilities and unlockable features against the gold coins that you earn by playing the game which you can use to make the game more challenging for yourself if you think it is not so already. However these ranged monsters have much lesser hit points as compared to the stronger spinning legends and therefore are much easier to dodge because even if you do get hit a single time, it is unlikely that your finger trail will die due to that hit. They also usually have a lower movement speed and a slow turn rate so escape is usually much easier from them if you can just manage to draw a good trail around the monsters that avoids direct contact.
Both the spinning and ranged monsters have their uses in different games and your chances of winning or losing are partially already decided while the finger trail drawing is under progress. For example, if you have played only against the spinning monsters and do not know how to handle the Ranged monsters, it will bode very badly for you both in the early game as well as late game phases especially if there are a lot of enemy monsters lined up against you. This gameplay strategy has great late game potential due to the immense damage per second output of a spinning monster but it will be actually very hard for you to reach a point that will enable you to make such progress that will help you deal with that kind of damage in the late game phase. Similarly an All-Ranged monster practice is a recipe for disaster because a single powerful spinning monster character with a much higher attack power will be easily able to eat out your finger trail with much relish as if it were his favorite snack.
There is no absolute or defined criterion for choosing the finger trails that you will be making in advance for any particular stage for a particular gaming session as the process is not under your control and the game throws randomly placed both spinning as well as ranged monsters at you quite often. However at the higher levels, it is prudent to actually plan during the extra time before putting your finger down on the screen and aim for combination line-ups. This is an excellent strategy in most cases and creates great synergy between the hungry monsters that you have to avoid and your gameplay style regardless of whether they belong to the same faction or not. Players that are entirely focused on meeting objectives or a gameplay style that includes many high attack monsters left, right and center will surely be able to end the game much faster than those which have their finger trail fighting solo battles all over the screen. Remember, Mmm Fingers 2 requires a strategic arcade effort and you can win a game only and only if you synergize your plans with the requirements of a particular level.
2. Find The Optimum Balance
Just like with any other strategy planning and arcade based game, Mmm Fingers 2 also gives out maximum rewards to players when an optimum pattern of movements is followed during a level. The sweet spot of any level can be achieved by balancing your planning and execution of the movement sequences in such a way that you do not take too much time to plan out before you act and once you initiate the sequence, you are able to complete it using the least possible number of steps. The game confuses you by displaying no dedicated timer for you to make a move. If you take too long, it will become very hard for you to control your finger trail and your entire planned sequence will be reset to the beginning. You do not lose any score at the end if this happens but you will have to redo all the steps you had already planned out again from the beginning. This will not only lead to frustration on your part but also be a source of annoyance especially if some kids are playing the game.
In order to avoid being trapped into a continuous cycle of planning steps and taking too much time to confirm leading to a reset, you should always divide your planning into stages. Think of it like mini stages within a level. For example if you have 5 monsters to dodge on a stage and they are divided into two and three per section, you should plan out your moves for the first set of monsters, enter these moves into a program sequence which you should make while deploying this strategy and then move on to the next set of monsters on the level. This will not only enable you to keep track of all the moves that you are making and whether they are the most optimum set of moves, it will also ensure that your character does not stay inactive for too long which could lead to a move reset occurring. This sweet spot of planning and execution is by no means easy to achieve but the rewards are very high if you are willing to invest a small amount of your time into practicing for the best movement sequences that would take the least time to execute.
You must select the option that allows you to dodge all monsters on a level while undertaking the smallest number of steps. One way to do this is to make sure that you never take off your finger from the screen and anticipate the movement of the monsters beforehand. This might seem like a very difficult strategy to follow when you play the game because the developers have made every effort possible to confuse you at each level. However, once you get enough practice, you will be able to predict the movements of the enemy spinning or ranged monsters with effective working efficiency and this will definitely lead to a much better gameplay experience for you and you will be able to progress to the higher stages much faster than your friends.
3. Your Reflexes Are Your Greatest Weapon
Mmm Fingers 2 is a game that pits your skill against the talent of thousands of players from all around the world. In order to prove yourself worthy of being called a Champion, you have to practice as much as you can in this game. An essential part of being called a pro player of Mmm Fingers 2 is to have killer reflexes and an extremely short reaction time. This is a game in which fights take at most two to five seconds and in that limited time you have to make split second decisions about which skill to use or to retreat from the enemy or dodge them and save your finger trail from dying unnecessarily. This perfect timing that you will notice in many pro games and competitions is a product of sheer hard work and countless hours devoted to practice in the game.
In the first few levels of the game you will be falsely led to believe by the in game tutorials that there is plenty of time available for you to easily swipe your way out of every level. However do not trust the developers on this because they have made sure that you are forced to try hard to even barely survive during the later levels. During the higher levels, you will instantly feel pushed by the need to swipe your finger across the screen as fast as you can because if you don’t the life bar will deplete faster than you can swipe and you will ultimately lose and have to start all over again.
A key reflex that you need to focus on developing is the use of your skills. Instead of trying out a new gameplay style every other day, choose a single style that you like or you think you can play well after trying it once or twice in battle. Give two to three hours of practice to fully understand how you can dodge the different kinds of monsters on each level and which style suits you best. Some new players get exasperated when they are met face to face with a tough monster and begin to spam all of their skills in order to get away as quickly as possible. This is the main cause of those encounters with the enemy which will end badly for you. Therefore more practice beforehand will help save you from hours of frustration later on in Mmm Fingers 2.
Another reaction that you need to master is the sixth sense of detection in this game. This sense only comes with time as you play more and more games. Having a good sense means you literally get a gut feeling that something is wrong and you might be need to swipe away faster or put all of your focus into devising new strategies for dodging enemies as you move into unknown territories. At other times you might feel a knot in your stomach before an intense encounter with the monsters is about to start and this allows you to anticipate the enemy’s attacks ahead of time. Use this sense to your advantage and become the Ultimate Finger Survivor in Mmm Fingers 2.
4. Step Up To The Challenges
Mmm Fingers 2 has one of the most unique and interesting ways of giving you a real challenge during every level that you play. This is the life bar that acts as the level timer plus your game over cue. You will have to take care to increase the frequency of your swipes as you move on to the higher levels because the life bar starts to decrease at a very rapid pace when you proceed past the second stage of monsters in Mmm Fingers 2. The first and foremost requirement of the race against your own health is to make sure your fingers are very well rested and you are not in a family gathering or public event where you could be scolded for the extreme swiping behavior that is required of you. You begin with a standard sized health bar which is located in the center of the screen of your smartphone. The size of your health bar will increase as you collect more gold coins and move to higher levels and dimensions in the game.
No extra perks or benefits are available to you at the start of the game but as you progress to the higher levels more and more bonuses and boosts will become available to you along with many upgrades and power ups that start to unlock. Remember, you have to always keep up with your ever depleting health bar so it is best to invest your earnings and rewards into upgrades and perks that increase the power of your finger trail and allow it to sustain for longer. Always keep in mind while playing Mmm Fingers 2 that your finger must be in contact with the screen at all times because as soon as you lift your finger off the screen, your finger trail character will shrivel and die right in front of your eyes. Therefore before playing an intense session of the game, do make sure that your phone is well charged and you have enough stamina to keep swiping away on the screen of your smartphone for so long.
Try to get as many levels as possible into the “life bar size” upgrade as this will be your main counter measure for the challenging health bar situation in the game. Getting too many levels into this upgrade will be quite difficult as the coin requirement for each successive upgrade exponentially increases. There is a solution to this problem: if you haven’t noticed it yet, you can jump backwards onto levels that contain coins as well thereby creating a pattern of dodging the enemy monsters and collecting coins at the same time. This trick can be quite hard to execute for new players but with an adequate amount of practice in the right direction, it becomes a force of habit and allows you to collect gold coins much faster and achieve your health bar size upgrades before it becomes too much of a menace for you.
Another core tip for all players is to avoid spending golden cookies on additional features like “Daily Bonus” or the “The Treasure Chest”. Both of these features eat up your gold coins very fast and you will not be able to save up for the later perks which give you a really huge boost in the game. It is best to save up and be thankful than to waste and regret your decisions later on.
At the end it all comes down to how much time you can spare for this epic time wasting game. Be mindful of the fact that swiping away to flick your finger trail across and dodging hundreds of enemies is a very addictive experience and you will find yourself unable to think about anything else while you are senselessly swiping away on the screen of your smartphone. Therefore choose your priorities with caution and do not let what the heart wants take control over what your mind tells you to do!
5. Play Intelligently To Beat The Game
It seems like the passionate path of the Aggressive finger swiping Mmm Fingers 2 Legend was not the one destined for you. It does not really matter because thinkers have always been one step ahead and even stronger than many legendary warriors so fret not. Rejoice in the knowledge that this path requires much less physical effort and can potentially save you from embarrassing yourself in a crowd or an important meeting. Unlike the path of the Aggressive warrior, you do need any physical strain for this path but you do need a good amount of mental concentration and decision making ability. Needless to say this path is for those clever players who have found the way to make the game work for them while they sit back, relax and watch the magic happen on the screen of their smartphone.
Once you have chosen the path of the “Strategist”, the first thing you need to make sure of is to follow the objectives given to you by the game for at least the first 3 levels. This will ensure that you get a handsome collection of Finger Trail Characters, Upgrades and Perks. You need to mainly focus upon increasing the upgrades available for your Finger Trail which indicate the number of swipes and acrobatic maneuvers that you need to perform while you are touching the screen and the number required to complete a level successfully. This swiping counter serves to strategize your attacks on the enemy even while you are not at your optimum health. Upgrades like the “Spinner Slayer”, “Double Swipe” and “Protective Shield” are a few initial perks to increase your confidence in your abilities and pump you to beat the game’s artificial intelligence.
As you begin to move ahead to the higher levels you will notice that you can now unlock finger trail characters with cross disciplinary abilities like strong characters with a small arsenal of magic spells up their sleeves. These arcane finger trails will form the cornerstone of your strategy for the higher levels and as a Strategist you have to take into account all the different abilities that they possess in order to make the most lethal combination possible with all the swiping patterns that you have learnt in your journey up until this point. In the end, all that really matters is your ability to judge different types of scenarios and the best suited response to each of them. So let your mind run free and creativity go wild while you swipe your days out in Mmm Fingers 2!
