There are several Talking Tom Candy Run tips and tricks that you should definitely get to know before embarking on this new adventure. So check out our Talking Tom Candy Run beginner’s guide to learn how to earn more coins, score higher, and open new exciting worlds.

1. Master The Controls

Special movement combos will keep you away from trouble

The control system is not very complicated. But it is crucial for you to learn how to master each movement. You can find the jump button on the lower right corner, while the slide button is located on the left side of the screen. If you need to get past an obstacle, tap the jump button once. If there is a big gap between two objects or platforms, tap the jump button twice. The double jump will also help you get hard-to-reach rewards.

The slide button will help you if you need to get passed a little gap between tall obstacles. It can also help you cancel badly-timed jumps. If your character is in the air and you tap and then hold the slide button, you will come down rapidly. Attention though! Don’t use this move if there are obstacles that you could hit on the ground. If you combine both controls, you will super-charge your character.

2. Learn Each Character’s Power-Up

Use upgrades to make the most of them

Each character comes with a specific power-up. Unfortunately, these special moves only last for a few seconds. If you want them to last longer, you need to buy upgrades and find each character’s cards (you will find them in chests). Power-ups will not only help you collect more coins and candies, but can protect you from obstacles as well. Here are some of the most important power-ups:

Tom: his Superhero power-up allows him to fly and destroy obstacles.

Hank: his Hamster Ball power-up allows him to smash through obstacles.

Angela: her Candy Princess power-up turns obstacles into candies.

Ginger: her Skateboard power-up destroys obstacles.

Ben: his magnet power-up will attract everything, including more power-ups.

Fireman Ginger: his Water Cannon power-up destroys obstacles with his water hose.

Brainiac Ben: with his Secret Formula, he can turn into a huge monster who destroys it all in his way.

3. Special Powers You Can Get From Orbs

Grab them to gain great power-ups

There are many useful boosts you can get while playing Talking Tom Candy Run. Here are some of the best orbs you may run across:

Magnet: orbs with a magnet inside will help you attract candies and coins. It works even for those candies floating in the sky

Top Arrow: if you collect this orb, your character will turn into a giant for a few seconds, destroying all the obstacles and collecting coins and candies

Right Arrow: this orb will make your character run faster.

4. Get As Many Chests As Possible

Win special characters by opening chests

Chests are usually available in the checkpoints of the tunnels you run through. However, you can also purchase them with coins and diamonds. The more chests you buy, the more chances you have to find special characters and useful items. So make sure to purchase as many chests as possible.

5. Buddies Can Be A Huge Help In Your Talking Tom Candy Run Adventure

Open chests to find them

Buddies come with powerful abilities. And this can be a huge advantage in the long run. You can get buddies by opening chests and there are four of them: Unicorn, Happy Cloud, Dragon, and Smiley Face. Here is what each one of them can do for you:

Unicorn: he will probably be the first one you will get. This buddy’s power-ups appear randomly on the screen. This means you have no control over where the power-ups show up and you will have to get them yourself.

Happy Cloud: this buddy will protect you from obstacles.

Smiley Face: this buddy can revive you once per turn.

Dragon: this buddy will enhance the characters’ power-ups.

The effect of their power-ups starts as soon as you begin your adventure. So you should select a buddy right before you embark on your next adventure.

6. Upgrade Your Characters

Boost their power-ups so that they last longer

Power-ups become available when you collect lightning orbs. As soon as you grab a power-up, a set of bars will appear on your screen. This means that the respective power-up will stay active until the bars disappear. If you want to increase the duration of the bars, you will have to upgrade the character. With each upgrade, the number of bars will increase. You will acquire a character’s power when you collect an orb with a lightning symbol. If, for example, you are using Angela and you grab a lightning orb, her Candy Princess powers will be active for a few seconds. In order to upgrade a character, you will first have to collect the character’s cards from chests. Upgrading your characters makes a huge difference, as you will be able to collect more candies and coins and pass obstacles more easily.

7. Pay Attention To The Hints That Arrows Provide

Follow their indications to avoid falling or bumping into obstacles

The arrows you find as you follow your candy path offer you valuable indications as what to do next. If you pay attention to the arrows, you will know when you need to jump, get down from platforms, or slide.

8. Complete Your Daily Missions

Completing daily missions will help you win diamonds and coins that you can use to buy pink or epic blue chests. These rare chests may contain new characters. So save your diamonds to buy them!
