Tomb of the Mask is a great endless arcade game from Happymagenta in which quick reflexes and a persistent attitude can go a long way toward earning a top score.
Check out these tips to see if you can give yourself an edge on the leaderboards.
I know, I know, this sounds like obvious advice, but there are multiple reasons why banging your head against Tomb of the Mask is a good idea.
Playing the game over and over will not only get your reflexes up to snuff, but repeat play sessions can also make you level up and earn new "masks" - both of which can grant you score bonuses.
So, if there's an impossible-looking score on the leaderboard you want to chase, you might want to try leveling up a bunch and unlocking a score-modifying mask to help you get there.
Take your time
There isn't much time to waste in Tomb of the Mask(as you're being chased by a flashing wall of doom throughout every level) but it is important to try and take as much time as possible through stages in the game to help you max out your score.
The reason for this is because getting further in the game doesn't guarantee a high score, but picking up pellets and coins does.
In fact, each level in Tomb of the Mask gets significantly more difficult to navigate, so see if you can earn a bunch of points at the beginning stages when things are a bit easier.
Go into star rooms
Every once in a while, a glowing box with a star on it will appear on the side of the screen. If you want to score big, make sure you try to get to this box.
Going through the star box will take you to a bonus room full of coins that's easier to navigate than the normal levels. Make sure you try to get into these rooms every time they appear to max out your score.

_PRISM is a rather delightful puzzle game that’s been tailor made for touch screens. While part of the fun is figuring things out as you go along, we thought we’d offer you a helping hand at getting in the right mindset.
Don’t worry about messing up
Did you load up the game then wonder what the heck you were meant to be doing next? If in doubt, touch a few things on screen and see what happens. It’ll work out, promise!
Moving around the screen and seeing the full picture is key. Use your fingers to rotate around and see where the other lines are. That’s generally where you need to start.
Line up the lines
Starting out, it’s easy to see where to drag the lines so that the colored circles line up. A few screens in though, and it gets a little trickier.
See the red circles? You can move those with your finger separately from how you’re moving the line. Obviously, you need to do this often.
Some lines can be rotated. Some can’t. If there’s a large orange circle on the outside, you can rotate the line.
Take it one sequence at a time
If you’re confronted by lots of different options, it can be intimidating. Don’t worry about it. Focus on just one line and it’ll soon make sense.
Stuck and not sure what’s required of you? Odds are you need to drag out some shapes. Just use your finger to do this. It’s pretty simple. _PRISM will happily take you to the next stage that way.
You don’t need to be perfect
Lining up the circles doesn’t require pinpoint accuracy. As long as you’re close enough, the game will do the rest for you.
