Armed with nothing but their trusty (albeit rickety) wooden cart, you’ll need to lead piggy and friends through a railway full of traps and hazards. Quick reflexes are a must here as time doesn’t stop for you to deactivate traps, open paths, and ensure the safety of all the barn animals! We’ll help you lead the animals to safety with our Bacon Escape cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
Bacon Escape is a based purely on your ability to react to danger in time. It’ll take a bit of practice to get good at it, but we’ve got some tips for you in the mean time. So let’s get started with our Bacon Escape tips and tricks guide!
1. Watch out for the skull signs!
If you ever come face to face with a contraption that you’re not quite sure how it works, always look around to see if there’s a nearby sign post with a skull on it. If there is, there’s a good chance that the upcoming contraption can kill you if you’re not careful! When you see one, start tapping ahead to see exactly how the contraption works. Prevention starts with being prepared!
2. Spend your apples!
Apples are the premium currency of the game and they can be spent to revive on the spot. Unless you care about different animal friends and carts, go ahead and do this because there’s nothing else to spend the apples on. During a level run, be sure to keep an eye out for apple signs. They’re just like the skull signs, except with… you know, apples! They’ll alert you if a certain path will have an apple on it, and you can usually find them around split paths.
3. Don’t tap like crazy!
Rapid tapping is the quickest way to get yourself killed in this game! You might be able to get away with during the early levels but once the traps start clumping up you’ll need to be precise! Remember: rapid tapping is okay if you see a trap you’ve never interacted with before. Tapping lots will show you how it’s okay. But don’t blindly tap trying to get through traps!
4. Don’t let the colors fool you!
Things get a little complicated when you’re introduced to the red traps. For red traps to activate/deactivate, you’ll need to tap and hold. The trap will move or turn off/on as long as you’re holding down. The second you let go the trap will reactivate. You’ll need to be very careful as the game will introduce these slowly to you, but eventually it’ll start placing them in between blue traps – the ones where a simple tap will activate them. Train your eyes to look for the colors to be ready for anything!
5. The different carts don’t do anything!
You’ll notice that the carts you can unlock have different weight ratings to them. We haven’t done extensive testing, but as far as we’ve noticed there doesn’t seem to be an actual change in how they move. We would assume that the carts that weighed very little would have an easier time launching off of ramps and stuff, but that doesn’t seem to be case. Again, like we mentioned before, the unlockables in this game all seem to be purely cosmetic. If you don’t care about that then save your apples for revives!
