Crossy Road is a fun mobile game launched just last year in November. It was created by Hipster Whale, an indie company. The game is available both in App Store and Google Play.
Basically, what a player needs to do is to go far across roads, grass, rivers, and train tracks without dying. The player may be a chicken, bunny, or koala. Moves include tapping to go forward and swiping to move the character horizontally. Sometimes, there are obstacles to be dealt with causing death such as trains, cars, and rivers. Getting past these, the player should make sure that the path is already clear or that there are platforms to use. If a player stays too long in its place like for five seconds, an eagle will snatch its character. This would later on mean dying or a game over.
The score system is a point for every square unit moved forward. 50 points earned is an achievement signified by a sound. Throughout the game, gold coins with red Cs may be found and these may be collected for bonus points. These coins are very crucial to the game as they are considered an in-game currency which could help a player in purchasing characters from a lottery machine-esque contraption.
For 100 coins, a new character could be obtained from the lottery machine. Meanwhile, there are characters not earned through this lottery and these are called the mystery characters. They can be gotten by special means. Sites like Crossy Road Secrets which has all the best Crossy Road hacks and cheats. Read on to find out how unlock them manually.
1. Festive Chicken
It was released just last December 2014. It was free during Christmas but now costs $0.99. She may be won using gacha. The Festive Chicken is like the Penguin which could change the world to winter by covering the ground with snow. Snowmen dots the landscape as well. Pine trees and snowflakes come out as well. Festive Chicken looks like the normal Chicken but it has a Santa hat.
2. Fortune Chicken
This character was just recently added last Chinese New Year in February 2015. Just like the Festive Chicken, Fortune Chicken became free in Chinese New Year but now costs $0.99. It may be won in the gacha as well. Fortune Chicken also turns the world to winter. Colorful plants appear together with the trees and pagodas appear where you could walk underneath. Fireworks also go off together with red lanterns floating in the sky. Red envelope sightings also appear in the ground. Fortune Chicken looks like standard chicken but it has a red and yellow outfit.
3. Hipster Whale
Hipster Whale was released last November 20, 2014. Unlocking Hipster Whale is done by playing as any character. When you see a blue blob having a brown square floating in a river together with the logs, this is actually the Hipster Whale. Jump on it and this would make you unlock him. The Hipster Whale’s interesting trait is that it takes photos while it is jumping. This gives flash and the sound of a camera. Just like the Floppy Fish, Hipster Whale’s jumps are flappy-sounding and wet.
Gifty was added in Christmas of 2014 as well. To unlock it, simply play as Festive Chicken. Upon reaching the range of 70 to 100 points, there would be a large clearing and you may see a big Christmas tree. Run towards it and it would explode with coins and presents. Eventually, Gifty could be unlocked moving on at the end of your run. Basically, Gifty is a chicken inside a gift box as you can see from its feet sticking out of the bottom of the box. Gifty plays on the grassy map as it makes a rustling sound as it jumps. Confetti appears when she dies.
This character was added last Australia Day in January 2015. Unlock it by playing as a kangaroo, platypus, echidna, and other Australian characters. On sandy areas, shuffle sideways by swiping back and forth. Do this a hundred times to unlock the Crab. To make sure that the eagle won’t take you away when you overstay, limit your swipes to 5 to 10 times in every lane. The crab moves on the standard grass map as well and moves sideways with a clicking sound from its pinchers.
