Rodeo Stampede Tips and Tricks for Beginners

Trying to grow your zoo and beat your record ride? Check out our list of tips and tricks to success in Rodeo Stampede!

Rodeo Stampede is a fun, fast-paced arcade-style game that puts you in the boots of a rough-riding zoo owner, letting you race down the savannah on the backs of water buffalo, zebra, elephants, and more. You jump from animal to animal to try and make it further down the track, and when you're done being a part of the stampede, you can head home to your sky zoo to manage your animals and make sweet coins for upgrades and bonuses. Here's a quick list of tips to get you started.

Learn to jump!

You might think the key to success in Rodeo Stampede is control -- learning to dodge between animals and obstacles to make it further down the track. But that's not always the case. The real key mechanic is knowing when to jump to the next animal -- being able to hop from beast to beast is how you're going to get past tight spots and adapt to changing situations. Once you unlock certain upgrades, being able to hop on a water buffalo or an elephant and smash through obstacles can be a key strategy, as can jumping on a fast animal when you've got a clear bit of road. Get used to switching, and look before you leap!

Don't neglect the zoo!

There's not a whole lot to do on your sky zoo, but that doesn't mean you should ignore it! Make sure that you're taking on visitors whenever they're available, and pay attention to the upgrades that you're taking. Sticking to one animal can be smart at the beginning, especially if you find one that you're better at riding. Once you have a little money, make sure to unlock the next area on the map as soon as possible. This will give you access to new animals, which will help you make money, and help you get further.

Ads aren't all bad

If you don't want to shell out real-world cash to boost your gains in Rodeo Stampede, you have other options. The app lets you watch short ads to increase your gold income, get another life on the savannah, and achieve other bonuses. If you're trying to maximize the value of your free-to-play, then you're going to want to grab a drink and a snack and sit through a few of these. It will make your advancement significantly quicker.
