Now that we’ve helped you familiarise yourself with all of the game modes in Color Switch on top of getting you on track to beating your highest scores, what’s next?

Well, if you’re looking for some variety, new purchasable shapes were recently introduced, allowing you to replace the standard ball. Now, all of you collectors out there have even more reasons to keep playing!

However, if you’re the impatient type, you’ll soon notice that stars are hard to come by compared to how expensive some of the shapes can get. Don’t fret! We’ve got tips on how to earn stars faster to satisfy your inner completionist.

Daily Prize

Having only noticed this fairly late into the game, the game sure does a good job of being discreet about the daily prize page, where you spin the prize wheel and are awarded with, you guessed it…stars! To access the daily prize, simply tap the present icon on the upper right side of the main menu.

Contrary to the name, these actually refresh every twelve hours as opposed to a full day, so remember to check back in due time.

While the chances of scoring the grand prize of 99 stars is miniscule as you’d expect, you can't really complain about easy stars!

More free stars

The game also allows you to view thirty second video adverts to gain an easy, thirty free stars, which again, means hooray for more free stars!

These appear once in a while, after you make any attempt in any game mode, next to the retry/next stage button. Don’t worry, you don’t even need to be concerned with passing the stage obtain this bonus!


Believe it or not, you can even farm stars efficiently, MMO-style. If you aren’t bothered with the grind, you just need to know the best places to do so.

I would actually advise against endless mode if you just want to earn some quick stars, as your competitive side will probably be preoccupied with beating the high score, slowing you down to play more carefully.

Instead, I’ve found level 20 in split mode to be among the easiest and quickest stages to complete, while earning you a hefty average of eight stars per run.
