Daddy Long Legs Cheats: Tips, Tricks & Strategy Guide


Mr. Long Legs is at it again, and by that I mean he’s simply trying to walk. With legs twice as long as your head though, that’s no simple matter. Daddy Long Legs is an endless runner with clear influence from the infamous tough-as-nails runner QWOP. Alternate between your two legs to try to get as far as you can! We’re here with our Daddy Long Legs cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide to help you get the best distance.

We’ve recorded a video to help you out in our Daddy Long Legs tips and tricks guide!

1. Try to keep your momentum towards the left side of the screen!

Here, take a look at a replay of my best run.

Did you notice that my head was usually in the middle and towards the back most of the time? For me, I’ve noticed I get more stability if I keep leaning back like that a little bit. Let your head hang back a little bit and let your legs go out a little farther than usual. I’ve tried to keep my head leaned forward, but that usually ends up in a faceplant, as seen in the video. It’s a delicate trick, but it works out great if you can get the momentum down on your daddy long legs!

2. Don’t wait too long to switch legs!

I’ve noticed that if you wait a little too long when switching legs, your back leg will get “stuck” in the ground. Your daddy long legs will try to move it forward, but it’ll hit the ground and because there’s not enough space he’ll just stop dead in his tracks. This almost always means a game over, as switching legs will make him splat right in place, so try not to wait too long!

3. Small steps go a long way!

Don’t try to make giant leaps as they will most assuredly throw your whole balance off. Little steps are what will carry you for a long time, so try to create your own rhythm. One, two, one, two! Tiny baby steps make sure that you don’t add too much momentum to your movement, keep you from flinging yourself into the ground.

4. Patience and persistence!

This is one of those games designed to make you fail as much as it can, albeit with hilarious results. It’s also much like Flappy Bird in the sense that it seems impossible and too daunting at first glance. Don’t worry if you can get down the walking momentum, as practice will help you out with each run. Don’t give up, and if you need to, take a break! Frustration can throw off your timing so don’t be afraid to come back to the game later.

That’s about all we can say on Daddy Long Legs. Remember, keep your head back a little back and make small steps! If you have any other questions, leave a comment below!

Daddy Long Legs Cheats: Tips, Tricks & Strategy Guide


  1. The leaderboard in the game has a first place gamer who apparently has gone about 2 billion steps or something crazy like that. It seems impossible just regards to how much TIME IT would take someone to take that many steps. The only thing I can think of would some kind of ‘cheat’ app that runs in tandem with he game. If anyone can she’d some light on how the top 3 all-time highest scoring players of Daddy long legs accomplished their ridiculous scores, I’d appreciate it…

      • But why would you do it? It takes away all the fun, all the sense of accomplishment…my best is 99.87 and I’m proud of it. It’s not much by any means, but I’m proud with what I have because it’s completely mine and no one can take this away from me.

  2. I also saw a few comment by people who seemed absolutely confounded about how to rid the game of banner ads… Simply click the gear icon and there ya go.

  3. Dude. if your “best” run is 27, you have No room giving anyone advice on this game! Why did you make a whole page dedicated to your “tips and tricks” when you werent even kinda good at the game…? I thought I sucked, but it didn’t take me too long till I could hit 250! Guess im doing pretty good!
    Its that DAMN new HORSE I cant figure out!
    How do you get that sucker galloping?!?!?

    • Once the front leg is midway down, tap so the hind leg will go up. vice versa. I got very upset with the horse, then I rode a bus on my way home, road was bumpy and for some reason I got 92 steps out of it lol

    • Uh, you should calm down. This page helped alot, for many people, actually, so you should stop being so ignorant. Maybe it was his best when he realised these facts.

    • From once I agree! You’re not very good but also HOW THE HELL DO YOU CONTROL THE HORSE? MY LIMIT FOR HORSE IS 20.5! but of course, for the daddy long legs, 347, not to brag but I’m just really proud that’s all

  4. This is horrible. The game I mean. As for the tips…

    There are way too many questions that this doesn’t address.

    How do you have any affect on your momentum?
    How do you keep the momentum “left”?
    How do you switch legs?
    How do you control the size of your steps?

    Patience? I have played 92 times now, and my “record” is two steps for a total of 6 meters. No matter how patient you are, you can’t ever be patient enough to do something impossible. Like take a third step in this game.

  5. If you keep your head tilted back ( warning, does not always works but helps a LOT) you can keep walking for a while but you have to go fast but slow because if you go to fast you will fall same if you go to slow. By doing this I got 15.13m to 40.99m

  6. Okay I admit it, this game is frustrating for me too, but all I did was use my strategy: just focus on the legs and just tap the screen! That strategy got ME to 376.2m!!!

  7. how do u “save it”? I’m on the “save it 2 times” quest and posing is fairly easy for me but getting back up again is a challenge :/
