Finding the controls hard? No problem! Scrambler went through a test/QA phase & many testers mastered the controls; achieving scores 100k+ & levels 10+. They became “at one” with the controls. Their 2 tips to you:
Tip 1: Learn to quickly lift your left thumb & then touch again to “reset” the distance between your thumb & ship. E.g. push your ship forward then lift + retouch behind & above to fly near the ground, etc.
Tip 2: You can very quickly fire both your Lasers + Bombs by sliding your right thumb up & down over the buttons. You don’t need to lift your thumb (& both buttons are auto-fire).
Why not make this your one game that you’re determined to beat, even if it takes a month!

- Leaderboards for each difficultly setting – compete with players world-wide.
- 24 achievements, some very hard ones to keep you engaged.
- Saves your progress even when offline.
- One of the best achievement XP games - all offering generous XP points!
