tangle master 3d game: how to play tangle master 3d

Tangle Master 3D is a surprisingly simple experience that challenges you to untie a series of knots. Untangle is also used loosely here, as many of the ropes aren’t, in fact, all that much tangled at all. They’re often just crossed over, which counts in Tangle Master 3D’s eyes.

Manage to untangle or, at the very least, uncross the ropes, and you can progress to the next level, receiving a shower of coins for your trouble, which you can spend on new cosmetics. These include new rope, nail, and pole designs.

Tangle master 3d tips, tricks, and cheats

So you want to untangle all of the knots, eh? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got all of the tips, tricks, and cheats you could possibly want, or need, below:

Assess the level before starting

Before you even begin to move a rope, take a quick moment to assess the level. Which rope do you need to move first? It seems obvious, but your first instinct is likely just to start moving stuff, assuming that the faster you start, the faster you finish. Efficiency is the key here. Ensure that when you make your first move, it’s the right one.

Don’t be afraid to go backwards

Sometimes, the only route forward is to backtrack, and that’s okay. We don’t mean to get philosophical though; we’re still talking about Tangle Master 3D. Sometimes you’ll untangle a knot, only to realise that you can’t progress until you move the ropes back a bit. Often, it’s a case of creating space for yourself.

Untangle a rope to remove it

If you untangle a rope, it gets removed from the puzzle entirely. So, for the most complex puzzles, it actually makes sense to untangle a single rope at a time, to free up space so you can untangle the more difficult knots later. This won’t always be possible, so bear that in mind, but it’s worth considering.

Tangle master money: How to make money in tangle master

Now that you’ve got a good understanding of how to untangle knots, here are a bunch of tips and tricks to help you make the biggest income.

Watch an ad between every level

Each time you complete a level, you get the opportunity to triple your earnings by watching a short ad. You will earn a lot more cash, faster, by watching ads between each level, so we thoroughly recommend doing this every time.

Open every chest

Each time you complete a series of levels, you’ll get the opportunity to open one of three locked chests, and you’ll get a free key. These chests can include a free cosmetic item, which will save you a whopping 2,000 coins, so it’s totally worth opening all three of them, and you can do so by watching ads to get free keys.

You can get 600 free coins intermittently by watching an ad

We’re not sure exactly how often you can do this, but you can watch an ad intermittently from the cosmetic purchase screen to get your hands on 600 free coins. Check back at least daily to see if you can watch a new ad.
