Totter Support/Frequently Asked Questions
What is the point of Totter?
It’s a game meant to test your balancing skills, hand-eye coordination, and dexterity. It’s fun and simple to play while posing a challenge, since there is no limit to the score you could reach as your skill increases.
How do I play?
You want your character to stay on the point for as long as possible, and you need to tap on either side of the character to balance him or her. Watch out for the obstacles!
Where do I tap to keep my character balanced?
You can tap any spot on the screen, and the App will read your touch and tip the character towards the opposite side from your touch. Imagine a vertical line going through the middle of your screen, and you can tap on either side.
I can’t stay on the point — help!
Try different techniques: Use your thumbs or index finger, or both index and middle fingers. Also try different speeds and strengths, and make sure to tap both sides of the character, compensating for the tilt. The more and harder you tap on one side the stronger the pull will be for the character to tip towards that side. Gentle tapping often works best, but if you are tottering too far to one side, you will need to tap furiously to rebalance your character. Don’t give up, you’ll get the hang of it!
My fingers hurt, help!
Have you tried using your toes? Try taking a break and coming back to it once your fingers don’t hurt anymore.
How do I dodge the obstacles?
When the wind blows at your character, tap from the opposite side to counteract the tipping, but don’t overcompensate or you’ll fall off the other side. When things are thrown at your character, they could tip either way so you just have to be prepared to tap accordingly!
How does the scoring work?
The number of points you win depends on the how far out of the central position you totter without falling: you win more points when you successfully maintain a deep totter to the left or right than when you stay balanced on the tip. Are you brave enough to try a deep totter?
What does “Continue Score” mean?
If you have tottered too far and fallen the first time, you will get the option to continue the score you have reached so far by watching a short ad. This gives you a second chance to reach a higher score. If you just want to start the game again with a score of zero, hit the “Restart” button.
Why don’t I get another chance to “Continue Score” after my second fall?
We deliberately limit the number of falls per game to two, if you watch an ad. We want all players to have an equal opportunity to achieve a high score with just two chances.
I’m concerned about the ads.
The App is geared towards players 9+, so the ads are representative of that audience. Ads typically last around 15 seconds, and can give a nice breathing space as you gear up for your second play, where you continue your existing score. You can also support us and go ad-free for a one-time fee.
What does it mean to go ad-free?
With this option, you pay a one-time fee and choose to support our group for further game development. As a bonus in each game you play, you get a chance to continue your score after you have fallen for the first time without having to watch an ad between the first and second plays. Even with the ad-free version, you only get one chance per game to continue your score after falling, so the second time you fall, you will have to restart a new game with a score of zero.
Can I still play if I’m not connected to the Internet?
Yes, you can play! However, you will not be able to watch ads and continue for a second chance, or buy the ad-free option — every time you fall, you will have to restart at zero. If you have already bought the ad-free option, you will be able to continue for the second chance even without being connected to the Internet. Although you won’t be able to share your score via Facebook, Twitter, or Game Center, you will be able to achieve new personal best scores. You can always take a screenshot to share later when you reconnect to the Internet.
Tell me about the design.
Acclaimed animation director Jason Jameson created the App’s hand-drawn black and white, pencil sketch character design, graphics and animation style. It’s a classic design that is visually appealing and easy to look at even after long periods of time.
Why do the characters look different each time?
It’s a creative touch provided by our design team to keep the game fresh. There are thousands of character and accessory combinations possible due to the interchangeability of the accessories. As you play, the character’s accessories will fly off in a humorous twist.
Tell me about the music and sound.
The aim for the sounds in Totter was to motivate the player while keeping the game light and playful. We decided on the jaunty “One-Man Band” by Ted Weems Orchestra from the 1930s, which is now in the public domain.
How do I mute the sound?
You can press the mute button (looks like a speaker) at any time to mute the sound.
How do I share my score?
At the end of each game, you are given the opportunity to share your score through Facebook, Twitter or Game Center.
When will Totter come to other platforms?
Totter is currently exclusively available on the Apple App Store, but may be released on other platforms in the coming months.
Why is my game running so slowly?
Totter is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad 2 and newer, iPad mini, and iPod touch 5th generation, and requires iOS 7.0 or later. Totter will still run on earlier iPhone, iPad, and iPod models, but you may notice some delays in the App.
My game has stopped working, help!
Quit Totter, and restart your device. If the problem persists, please contact our technical team at firstname.lastname@example.org
I got a new iPhone/iPad. Will my ad-free in-app purchase transfer?
Yes, it will transfer since it is an in-app purchase.
I got a new iPhone/iPad, will my high score transfer?
No, it will not transfer but we are working to fix this. However, previous score shares on Facebook and Twitter will remain in place.
Can I play against other players?
Yes, you are able to share high scores with other players worldwide through Game Center.
