Crossy Road was developed by Hipster Whale and is about crossing busy streets and a jungle filled with dinosaurs to simply…. get to the other side. You’ll be building up your score, and earning yourself some neat new rewards in this game. The game was originally released in 2014 and has since attracted a great amount of attention with its great visuals and challenging gameplay.



What are mascots? They’re your character when playing the game! You’ll be able to unlock various mascots by simply playing the game. When you achieve a higher score every time you play, you might be rewarded with a loot crate that might contain an exciting new mascot!

From the main menu, you’ll be able to select one of many mascots available to you. Click on the play button once you’ve selected it and you’ll be able to jump right in!

Dynamically Changing Maps

As you move on to a higher score, your usual scenery of dinosaurs will be replaced by traffic of fast-moving cars. This dynamic change indicates a change in the overall difficulty of the game as the objects in front of you start to move at a much higher speed, giving you little room to breathe and think.

More Games

Crossy Road is a simple concept that seems to get seemingly complex the more you play it with faster objects that you’ll have to avoid. The game continually forces you to think on your feet. If you like that, you can check out games like Crossy Dots, Good Dogs!, Froggerty Arcade and Tamagogo!

How to Play

You don’t have to rush past anything. If you’ve got a moment to rest, take it! To control your character, you’ll be using your arrow keys. You can move in all four directions, so be sure to make use of it.

Avoid anything in the front that might crush you. You can adjust your direction in the middle of the road if you need to. If you feel that you’re in too much of a pickle, simply backtrack your way to the previous resting point.

As the game gets faster, you’ll have to be more careful with where you step. Simply avoid anything that moves and you’ll be good to go!


Crossy Road is great for fans of Flappy Bird. You can play the game as fast as you like, and speedrun through its various visual cues to get a higher score. The best part is, you can play it however you like as the game doesn’t force you into an extremely fast pace. Take the environment in as much as you like until you’re used to the game mechanics.
