TENKYU is French developer Voodoo’s latest level-based game that lets you control a ball through maze-like stages. This casual mobile game is inspired by the tilting puzzle toys that we all used to play as kids. You will need to guide the marble through the different paths of each stage by swiping and tilting your device. The ball will roll depending on how much you tilt and in which direction. Be careful, though. If you tilt too much, you might lose control of the ball. If it falls off the maze, it’s game over! The stages start off really easy as you are introduced to the mechanics and controls of the game. Don’t relax too much because the difficulty level ramps up pretty quickly. You will need a steady hand and extreme focus if you want to keep progressing. Be sure to read our TENKYU cheats, tips and tricks in order to clear all the stages and get a high score!
1. Expect More Platforms
When you start out, you will just need to get the ball through a single platform. As you progress through the stages, you will encounter more and more platforms. That means you should stay alert. Just because you were able to get through one platform does not mean you are done. Keep an eye on the bar at the top of the screen to know how far you have really progressed through the stage. Always anticipate more platforms to come, so you can maintain your focus.
2. What To Do With Gems
After level 11, you will start noticing gems on the platforms. You can pick these up to collect them, but as of this writing, they can’t be spent on anything just yet. While they will most certainly be used for in-game purchases in future updates, you should not focus too much on collecting them just yet. Knowing Voodoo, there will most likely be easier ways to earn gems in the future. Make sure you do not sacrifice your position on the maze just to pick up a gem or two.
3. Narrow Passages Are Tricky
Some stages in TENKYU have narrow passages with thin walls. It is easy to fall off these passages if you tilt the wrong way. Instead of going for one full tilt, it may be better to take it slowly by rocking your device from side to side. This will let you move the ball in a certain direction carefully while allowing you to adjust in case you make any mistakes.
4. How To Deal With Ramps And Bumps
Normal rolling won’t be enough once you start seeing ramps and bumps on the platforms. Ramps will make your ball accelerate, therefore difficult to control. To counter the effects of ramps, you will need to tilt your device against the flow of the ramp. Bumps, on the other hand, will require that you get a running start before you hit them, so you can successfully go over. If you are not going fast enough, you will end up getting stuck behind them.
5. Take Your Time
The game does not have any kind of timer. You also do not get rewards for completing stages quickly. There are no penalties for taking too long. With that in mind, you should take as much time as you need in order to go through each stage. A lot of times, going slowly but surely will help you overcome even the most difficult stages. Focus on how you will get the ball to the goal and don’t worry about the time it takes to get there.
It is time to tilt and roll your way through the stages in TENKYU! Stick to our list of tips, tricks and cheats above and you will be completing stages with ease!
