And that’s what you’re reading right now. Here you’re going to find the best hints, tips and cheats for Tap Away 3D. Follow these and you’re going to be clearing blocks left, right and center with no worries whatsoever.
Even if you’ve played the game already, there’s going to be something here that’s likely to help you out. So let’s get on with it – here are the five best hints, tips and cheats for Tap Away 3D.
Look at the arrows
You might not realize it, because the design of the first blocks is a bit weird, but there are arrows showing you the direction they’ll move when you tap them. In the first design, the tip of the white space shows you where they’ll go. You have to look at the arrows to figure out which blocks you need to move.
Move the shape around
If you can’t find a block to move, then rotate the shape to find one. As the levels get bigger, you’re going to be doing this almost constantly. When you spot a block that you can move, tap it, then keep on moving until you find another. Remember that clearing blocks from one side can open up moves on another.
Make some space
Sometimes you’ll have to move a block to make space to get rid of others. You can move blocks without clearing them – they’ll come to rest when they hit another uncleared block. Use this to your advantage to make room to clear other blocks which should, in turn, clear space to get rid of the first one.
Play the challenge levels
The challenge levels are some of the most entertaining in the game. They’re bigger and they have a move count. When you get the chance to play one, you should definitely take it. You won’t get any extra rewards for doing it, other than the reward of having quite a nice time.
Look for the gaps
In the more complex levels you’ll want to be constantly looking for gaps. There might be a block at the top, for example, that you can send shooting through the rest of the shape to clear. Always keep an eye out for opportunities like this – they’re going to make tougher levels much easier.
