Tips and Tricks to Become a Better Spinch Player
Jumping as a Spinch
There are two core ways to approach long distance jumping in Spinch. Both methods involve combining the jump button with the dash button, but differ in the timing of when you press the dash button.
The first method we will call “arc jumping”, in which spinch rises and falls with a forward momentum, in the shape of an arc.
Another alternative to making long jumps is to begin by pressing the jump button first, and pressing the dash button a moment later, mid-jump, giving spinch an extra arc.
Spinches often find themselves in the position of prey animal, running and climbing with all their speed to avoid becoming some psychedelic creature’s snack. In these intense chases, a millisecond can be the difference between life and death.
A helpful habit when jumping off walls is to utilize shallow jumps, propelling the spinch upward to the next platform, as opposed to climbing needlessly high and jumping down.
Power Pulse Levels
Timing is of the utmost importance when Moondog is hovering overhead, with a bottomless belly full of psychedelic explosives.
A simple tip, but something often overlooked, is the positioning of Spinch while waiting in the safety zones. By waiting at the doorway, you can shave off precious milliseconds, and be ready to hit the ground running when the coast is clear.
