Slide the Shakes Tips and Tricks

Can you slide the shakes with the best of them?

Slide the Shakes is Prettygreat's latest addition to the free-to-play game roster out there. If it sounds simple, that's because it is. There's a ton of milkshakes that you're responsible for the care and safekeeping of, but there are tons of things in your way to keep those milkshakes from reaching their intended destinations.

This guide should make sure you're on board with routing the milkshakes correctly.

Before you know it you'll be the best Slide the Shakes player in all the land. 

Make sure you use enough force

You won't be pulling and pushing shakes on one even, level surface forever. Make sure you compensate for this when you face inclines and uphill levels and pull back further to make sure your shake gets to where it's supposed to be. Just watch and make sure your glass isn't sliding all over the place, because there's tons of goo all over the counters. You'll have to take that into account as well, especially since the difficulty scales with each level that loads up. 

Don't worry about tipping the shakes over 

This might go against everything the game tells you (and my advice as well) but it's really important that you worry more about reaching the destination rather than any possible collateral damage along the way. If you lose a little bit of the shake out of the glass, as long as you reach the end of the green area.

You're actually not even penalized that harshly for spilling some of the drink in the shake glass. 

Take the time to restart some levels just for practice

If you think you need to try a certain area again and again, there's nothing wrong with doing that. There are some extremely difficult areas that you'll absolutely mess up on because they're built for you to do badly on.

That's the nature of these types of games. So it won't hurt to get some practice in if you think you might need it. It takes a certain sort of finesse to really top things off in Slide the Shakes, and it's the kind of skill that really only presents itself after you've had some time to practice. 

Don't be afraid to be a bit heavy-handed

You'll definitely end up using too much force here and there when trying to reach the end zone of a level. That's fine. You need to get used to overshooting each level and that way you'll learn to gradually taper the force over. It's always better to overshoot than not have enough force when you're learning the ropes. It's always easier to rein things in than it is to learn to implement more power, just like in real life.
