By now, you’re probably familiar with Crossy Road, an immersive mobile game from Yodo1 that’s been around for a while for Android and iOS devices, with several updates having rolled out since its original release. This game pretty much has you crossing road after road after road, collecting numerous pop art-inspired characters, and avoiding traffic and other obstacles. And since we did mention updates earlier, the latest “Korean Update” introduces nine new Korean characters, including PSY of “Gangnam Style” fame. So how can you unlock him, and unlock some of the other popular characters found on the new update? Check out the following Crossy Road tips and tricks and we’ll tell you how.
How To Unlock The Pro Gamer
The first thing you have to do when trying to unlock the Pro Gamer is to make sure you’ve got any one of the other Korean characters (except PSY) unlocked. Choose one of these characters and play a new game with them. Now the next step is pretty straightforward, but not that easy – that’s because you have to get a “great score” and move as fast as possible. You’ll have a better chance to unlock the Pro Gamer if you move fast and make sure your score is as high as possible.
The operative word above, as you may have guessed, is “great,” but in the context of the game, “great” would be relative to your previous high score. You’ll probably want to try scoring as low as possible if you’re just starting, or uninstall the game and reinstall it if you feel your top score is too high.
How To Unlock Psy
The easiest, and unfortunately only way to unlock PSY is to pay real money, as long as he’s still available; he is, as of the moment, a premium character who’ll only be available for a limited time. Buying him will get you a thousand free coins, which should give you additional incentive, and also unlock the Crossy Dance game mode, which combines elements of Crossy Road and Dance Dance Revolution. Just swipe in the right direction and you should do well in this brand new mini-game.
If you’ve missed previous game updates, you can check out our tips and tricks on the Crossy Road Archie update and the Crossy Road UK update as well. In case you’re a beginner, check out our general hints on the game, right here.

Legendary Dweller Preston Garvey is a member of Fallout 4’s Commonwealth Minutemen. He’s armed with the oh-so futuristic / oh-so retro laser musket. Other Vault dwellers are able to equip the weapon, though they have to pry it out of his cold, dead hands first. That’s usually not a problem in the irradiated world of Fallout, mind you.
You should be able to find Preston Garvey and his trusty musket in one of Fallout Shelter’s lunchboxes. Warning: Do not eat him.
Fallout Shelter is available for free on iOS. Fallout 4 comes to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 10.

Fun fact: America doesn’t have a national sport. While we might be quick to call baseball “America’s Pastime,” there’s no hard and fast rule for national sports like there are for the national bird or national animal (SPOILER: both are the Bald Eagle). So really, America’s national sport is up for debate. Some might say it’s football. Others might say it’s drag racing muscle cars vehicle-wrapped with images of professional wrestlers.
Glu Games is going with the latter.
Starting today and running through July 5th, Glu is running a cross-promotion with the WWE to feature special edition vehicles in Racing Rivals, emblazoned with the Superstars of the WWE.
The full list of participating Superstars is as follows:
- Daniel Bryan
- Hulk Hogan
- Ultimate Warrior
- John Cena
- Roman Reigns
- Triple H
- Randy Orton
- The Bella Twins
My heart weeps for the lack of a Rowdy Roddy Hot Rod.
Players will be able to get a free “mystery crate” every 24 hours to help them build towards their wrasslin’ dream car. If you’re not already behind the wheel, you can download Racing Rivals for free from Google Play and the App Store.
It’s been an interesting few years for FreshPlanet. After making a huge splash with the “Name that Tune” inspired multiplayer trivia game SongPop, they’ve gone on to dabble in just about every genre you can imagine. BoxPop was a puzzle game with roots in Chess. LuckyPop was their spin on a collecting game. There was even ShakePop, which was kind of like a Bop It.
But on July 9th, they’re returning to their roots.
SongPop 2 isn’t the first new SongPop game we’ve seen this year (that honor goes to the single player Rock On!), but it’s being treated by the company as the one true continuation of the franchise. After all — it’s not really SongPop if you’re not playing with friends, right?
The game is set to launch with more than 100,000 songs, as well as a “tournament style single-player Party Mode,” which my gut says is what “Rock On!” was a test for. The game will also feature “a thousand individually curated playslists with new releases (of 200 songs each!) every week.”
If they’re looking for anybody to help curate these lists, I volunteer as tribute.
SongPop 2 will be debuting on iOS on July 9th with an Android version to follow.
Coming off of such an incredible May, it’s hard to believe that anything could really wow us this June. But mobile gaming rarely disappoints when it comes to options, and in the last 30 days? There were some great ones.
From AAA franchises to tiny hidden gems, June 2015 was a good month to be a mobile gamer.
Think free-to-play games can’t be profitable for the developer and fun for the player at the same time? Think again! Fallout Shelter quickly shot up the top grossing chart, while giving players everything they’d need to enjoy playing the game without spending a dime. If you’ve ever wanted to play a post-apocalyptic Tiny Tower, this is the game for you.
FMV games, or “full motion videos,” were all the rage for about six weeks in the early 90’s. Since then, FMV games have become sort of the butt of all video game jokes… and then there was Her Story. As it turns out, FMV games are amazing so long as you cast the right people, tell the right story, and present them the right way.

Can a video game be fun with just one level? Hitman Sniper answers that strange hypothetical with a resounding yes, challenging players to eliminate different targets under different conditions in the same sprawling mansion time and time again. You won’t be sneaking around like in traditional Hitman games, but there’s no question about it: Hitman Sniper is a game perfectly befitting the day-to-day work of Agent 47.
You Must Build a Boat
Fans of match-3 RPGs found a lot to love in 2012’s 10000000 — and had fairly high expectations for its sequel. Much to our delight, You Must Build a Boat handily delivered. The core of the game is similar to the first, but so much has been improved this is easily the best version of one of the best match-3 battle games we’ve ever played.
Blades of Brim
There have been a few milestones in the history of the endless runner. Canabalt created the genre, Temple Run put it behind your back, and Subway Surfers introduced the world to lane-changing. SYBO, the team behind this last innovation, decided to improve up their formula by mixing in RPG elements and combat for Blades of Brim — one of the best runners we’ve played to date.
It came out at the very tail end of May, so we’re cheating a little by including this one — but we wouldn’t have been able to live with ourselves if we didn’t give Nubs’ Adventure the recognition it deserves. Nubs’ Adventure is a beautiful mobile Metroidvania, arguably second-only to our 2014 iPhone Game of the Year Traps n’ Gemstones. If you like great platforming, unlocking new areas, and stylish pixel art, Nubs’ Adventure is an instant must-play.
