Tips on How to Play

Time your movements decisively

Timing and precision are key to surviving a level in World’s Hardest Game. Make sure you find the most ideal moment to make your move - even a fraction of a second makes all the difference.

Learn the levels well

Unless you’re a speedrunning master, you’re going to be dying repeatedly. That gives you the opportunity to learn the level and see where you’re going wrong. Look at how the obstacles move and plan your tactics for getting through to the green square.

Find resting spots and checkpoints

Some levels feature spaces outside of the blue balls that let you pause for a breather. There aren’t many opportunities like this but they can help you collect your thoughts. Some levels also feature checkpoints where you can save your progress.

Keep a cool head

Even the first level in this game can be tricky, but it’s doable. Once you beat the first level, you’ll realize that you can go further if you keep calm and patient, and don't mind failing.
