I feel my eyes a bit tired after playing for the last 20 minutes dExtris on my iPad, but this also means that it’s a really good and challenging game, too, so that’s a great thing! However, I am here now to share with you a set of dExtris cheats and tips in this short strategy guide, hopefully being able to guide you all the way to the top of the leaderboards. But trust me, getting a high score in dExtris, one high enough to be number one, is pretty difficult!
But let’s give it a try with this set of dExtris cheats and tips!
1. Don’t look at your squares
If you look at your squares or the base of the screen, you won’t be able to get too far because you won’t have enough time to react when the pace increases a lot, after 50 points, for example. Always keep your eyes at the top of the screen and tap the screen according to the spikes that you see there. Don’t look at your squares, they will take care of themselves!
2. Always have one finger pressing the display
Of course, when you have to go through the middle, you don’t have to tap the display, but until you get to such an obstacle, always have one finger pressing the display. This makes it a bit easier to make the transition from one part to the other, or to split the squares in two. Move fast from one tap to another and never give yourself any breaks – any wrong move will bring you the “Game over” screen.
3. Don’t lose your focus
Every time I beat my previous high score, I tend to get a little bit excited and that’s when I lose focus and then the game. Try to stay calm at all times and you will get a lot further. And personally, I believe that you have to be a super human to get past 100 points, so don’t go too crazy if you can’t really make it!
4. Take breaks
Play the game for about 5 to 7 minutes, then let it rest for a while. Rest your eyes, rest your hands and do something else. These short breaks will do wonders to your skill levels. Every time I restart the game after such a break, I manage to beat my previous high score.
5. Avoid any other distractions
In the end, dExtris is a pretty fast paces game that you will play during five minutes break. Make sure that there are no distractions during this time (friends talking, TV on, even music) because you need to be 100% focused on the game if you want to get to the top of the leaderboards.
6. Play on an iPad, if possible
If you have a choice to make and you own an iPad, that’s the better device for playing this game because the larger screen helps you a lot with everything, from seeing the pieces to making it easier for you to tap everything else.
I managed to get to 89 so far, but I am sure that I’ll beat the 100 by then of the day. What is your high score in Dextris so far?
