Geometry Dash Tips

Is that game with the little jumping box making you pull your hair out? Well, pull no more, for here are the 10 tips for you to make your Geometry Dash experience much better.

  1. Sync the music first. You may notice that the newest version of Geometry Dash has an ‘Offset’ setting in the ‘Options’ menu in the settings panel. Use a hard level to test the music-touch sync after setting the offset level. I suggest you set it to 10, then -10, and see whether the music is too early or too late.
  2. Make sure the game runs smoothly. When you first start the game, not only will you have to sync the music, you’ll have to experiment with the settings to make sure your gameplay is smooth without any lags or framerate jumps. 
  3. Start with practice mode. No, I don’t mean you have to play through the whole level 10 or 20 times in practice mode. Play through the whole level once in practice mode first to get a rough idea.
  4. Practise with the normal mode. Practising with the practice mode provided is not recommended, as the jumps in the game follow the music itself, and practice mode does not have the music. Practise with the normal mode, i.e. You’ll return to the beginning when you hit an obstacle. This may be a huge annoyance, but you’ll get used to it and the final result will be much better.
  5. Make your character as easy to see as possible. You may notice that you are given the options to change the colours of your character (the little square). Before playing a level, you may want to change your character’s colours so that you can easily see it with the level’s background.
  6. Use your left hand. You may notice, in fact, you should have noticed that typically, the obstacles come in from the right. Use your left hand so that your right will not cover any obstacles that may be crucial to progressing through the level.
  7. Listen to the soundtrack. You can find the soundtrack for the game on YouTube or on Newgrounds. Listening to the soundtrack can give you a rough idea of how the level may look like.
  8. Make sure you sync your data to your Geometry Dash account. Sign up for a Geometry Dash account to sync your game data to the game servers so that you don’t have to replay everything when you reinstall the game.
  9. Don’t rage. After playing Electrodynamix and retrying about a thousand times, you may realize that rage does not work on Geometry Dash. Really.
  10. Don’t give up. Simply put, once you give up on Geometry Dash, you lose.
