How do I play Color Tube for mobile?

Posted by Harry Slater on July 27th, 2018

Color Tube is a super simple game of not smashing your little ball into the wrong colored part of a tube. Well, it sounds simple anyway. In actuality it's a hair-tearing, super-frustrating game of screaming at your phone and wishing ill to the developers.

But, since you probably want your hair to stay in one place, and you don't want to go on a murderous rampage against iOS game developers, we've written this handy guide to walk you through the ins-and-outs of the game.

It might not make you the greatest Color Tube player in the world, but by our reckoning if you follow these hints and tips you're going to be in the top ten at the very least.

Stay perfect

Hitting the star in the center of the colored sections gives you a perfect smash. That’s important, because if you look in the top left of the screen you’ll see a small bar. When that’s filled up, you’ll get a spiral that lets you rack up the points without any risk. So, where you can, try and hit that sweet spot.

Hit the spirals just right

The spirals give you more points the longer you’re on them, so try and make sure that you strike them at the very start. That’s going to earn you more points, and it’s going to mean you’ve got a little bit of extra time between the start of the spiral and the next gate.

Don’t move

Find a comfortable position with your finger or thumb and keep it there. Whatever you do, don’t lift your finger off the screen. When you put it back you’ll find the game is still calibrated to the last position your digit was in, which can lead to all sorts of problems. Keep your finger on the screen, even when you’re in the spirals.

Watch your colors

The game is very good at lulling you into a false sense of security. You’ll get three gates where you need to hit the same color, but it’s the fourth that’s going to trip you up. Focus on the color of your ball, rather than the color of the gates, and you should do just fine.
