Leap Day is a brand new vertical platformer that has just been launched by Nitrome on the App Store. A game that comes with an interesting concept: a new level every day and definitely a game that gets frustrating really soon because you do have to start over and over again on the same level trying to complete it. It’s fun and frustrating at the same time, but one thing is certain: this is an extremely addictive game! And I am here to help you get the most out of it by sharing some Leap Day cheats and tips with you.
So let’s not waste a single second and let’s check out some goodies in our Leap Day tips and cheat article!
1. Collect all fruits
Fruits are what you use to unlock checkpoints (unless you spend the money to purchase the ad-free version) so you shouldn’t skip any. Collected fruits in a level are gone forever once collected, but if you skip one or more and get to a checkpoint and save your progress, there’s no turning back. So always make sure that you collect all fruit before getting to a checkpoint.
2. Don’t save too often
All checkpoints cost 20 fruit to unlock and the game gets more and more difficult as you progress through the levels. I would suggest using your first checkpoint after the first three levels and then last for as long as you can saving every two checkpoints – and eventually every checkpoint. You will get to a certain point where everything will be extremely difficult and you’ll feel that it’s better to save your progress there. Also do the same after getting past any extremely challenging point in your level.
3. How to play older levels
The game rewards you with a new level any day, as promised. All levels that are unlocked while you have the app installed on your iPhone or iPad will remain unlocked and you can access them at any time. Level that you’ve missed can also be accessed and played, but you have to unlock them first by watching an ad.
In order to replay a level (either unlock or play the ones you already have), simply tap the settings icon and tap a day on the calendar: if you have to unlock the level first, there will be a lock on the day and if you already have it unlocked, there will be none. So just tap on the day you want and you’re good to go!
4. Take your time!
Unlike most games out there, Leap Day doesn’t have any sort of baddies coming at you from the bottom, so you can take your time and strategize and wait for that perfect timing for your move. You can also slide down for as long as you want to, the only limitation being the platform that’s from one side to another. With this in mind, it’s good to always asses the situation and wait for the best time to move and do it at the right time. On most occasions, perfect timing is what you need in order to complete a level.
I had fun and got extremely frustrated the first time I played and I wasn’t able to complete the level on my first run. If you want to check out a short gameplay video and see me struggle, check out the video below:
