Stackables allows you to apply as many or as few of these as you like by creating separate layers for each. The layers can be customized in a variety of ways, and you’re able to rearrange them after the fact by dragging and dropping them into place.

As Axl goes speeding down the roller coaster, tap either side of the screen to leap into the air to collect coins and avoid robots. You’re able to earn style points by performing flips, bouncing off of robots, and tapping on Tuna as he flies by. It’s not just about points, however. You’ll also be judged on how far you’ve traveled and how many Fuzzbots you’ve collected along the way. Come back every day to race down a new roller coaster track.

Tap and hold your finger on the screen to stop the planet from spinning and release to jump through the cosmos. You can tap again to get a momentary boost in case you mistimed your jump. The procedurally generated levels ensure you’ll never come across the same set of planets. Complete goals to earn even more spare parts, which can be used to upgrade your abilities.
