Ultimate Guide to Crossy Road Game on Mobile

Mobile Games

If you’ve played Sega’s Frogger before, then you’re very likely familiar with how Crossy Road works. This quirky mobile game runs on a deceptively simple concept: help your character cross a perilous road. Crossy Road also has a Disney version that featured iconic characters like Aladdin, Stitch, Nemo, and Mickey Mouse.

In this article, we’ll show you how to play the game to maximize your experience from the get-go. We will even show you how to unlock secret characters to mix up your gameplay beyond the OG blocky chicken.

Why did the chicken cross the road?” Why, to get to the other side, of course!

We’ll concede that this is a pretty lame joke, but hey, it worked as the inspiration for Crossy Road back in 2014. When you first start playing the game, you take charge of a white chicken, and your mission is—you guessed it—to help it cross the road. But the road isn’t safe; you’ll have to wend your way through traffic-laden highways and jump across logs—all within the stipulated time limit.

Eventually, you’ll unlock new characters that you can use to replace the chicken in your gameplay.

How to Play Crossy Road

Crossy Road isn’t a particularly difficult game to get into. To this end, we recommend playing the web version, as it is much easier to control your character with the spacebar and arrow keys.

The left and right arrow keys are for moving your character from side to side, while the down key moves backward and up key pushes forward. Furthermore, the spacebar lets you start a new session or spin the gumball machine to unlock new characters.

Also, Crossy Road’s environments are well designed, featuring a diverse range of wildlife, trains, trees, logs, and cars. Furthermore, you’ll occasionally come across coins that you can pick up for additional points during your gameplay. You’ll also receive one point for every square you move into.

As mentioned above, you start Crossy Road with a basic chicken character. As you earn more coins and progress further in the game, you can unlock more characters. While coins are scattered across the levels, these are scarce, so be sure to snag them every time they appear.

When you’ve accumulated enough coins, you can use them on the gacha-style gumball machine to obtain one random character from the pool. Crossy Road features thousands of characters, including holiday-themed, country-themed, Easter-themed, and Halloween-themed ones.

We list down a few of the general and secret Crossy Road characters you can unlock in the game below:

What Is Disney Crossy Road?

As its name suggests, Disney Crossy Road was a Disney-themed Crossy Road game that was available on Android, iOS, and Windows devices. Instead of the animals of the original Crossy Road, Disney Crossy Road characters came from Disney movies and TV shows.

Similar to the original Crossy Road, Disney Crossy Road’s objective was to obtain high scores and collect as many coins as you can. As a Disney-themed game, the locations were based on several Disney movies. To add to the Disney-centric experience, there were also new obstacles unique to each level. Toy Story’s location, for example, had rolling blocks in Andy’s house.

Aside from collecting coins, you could also get coins from free gifts. When you’ve already collected 100 coins, you could spin a new character from the gumball machine. Considering how many Disney characters there are, you can never have duplicates with Disney Crossy Road characters. Similar to the old Crossy Road, you can also unlock Disney Crossy Road secret characters by completing specific activities from each level.

 

Is Disney Crossy Road Still Available?

Two years after Hipster Whale released Crossy Road, the company launched Disney Crossy Road. Unfortunately, Disney Crossy Road is no longer available since March 12, 2020. DuckTales is the last update of Disney Crossy Road. Although it’s no longer available for download on the Play Store and App Store, gamers who’ve downloaded the Disney Crossy Road app before its closure can still play with all the epic, rare, and classic characters unlocked.
