Twins (WP)

Oh hai! My name is SpiralGamerpro, and welcome to my Walkthrough for Twins on the Windows Phone. Twins is a free Platformer that plays very similarly to The Impossible Game... with a unique twist. Your character (a ball) is able to move between both sides of your phone while maneuvering through the obstacle course. Oftentimes, you have to switch between these sides to collect coins (that increase your score) or to avoid really difficult obstacle sections. There is also a really cool power-up called "Twins Mode" that allows you to control balls on both sides of the screen at the same time. The game itself is really addicting, and this Walkthrough would probably be finished by now if I could put my phone down.

You might notice that I've set the "Playthroughs Required" to 1. You actually could, hypothetically, get all of the Achievements in one game, but chances are 99.9999999999999% certain that you won't. The Achievements in this game are very difficult and require an immense amount of hand-eye coordination, lightning fast reflexes, and, of course, some luck. I've also set the "Estimated Time to Complete" to 1-1,000 hours since this game is largely based on the skill and luck of the player. Simply put, practice makes perfect. There's no secret method to become excellent at Twins, but hopefully, some of the tips I give you can help you complete the game in a time-efficient manner.

Truth be told, the key to success in Twins is to practice the game to learn its patterns. On top of that, I'm going to provide you with some specific tips to assist you in getting higher scores in every game. Since the background and obstacles in Twins are very generic and never change aesthetically, I've included some screenshots in order to assist you with understanding tip. With that said, here are some helpful tips that you want to remember at all times:

  • The snaking sections are your best friend. These sections are basically a long snake of coins that allow you to continuously switch sides while in midair. They give you a large boost in score, and a steady stream of spawning snakes will let you score efficiently and quickly. There are also larger snaking sections that spawn around 1,750. If you're only going for 2,000 points, they could very well give you the final push. As a warning, make sure to only jump when you can snake through the gaps efficiently, and there may be some obstacles in the way of the gaps, so make sure to time the jump correctly. The first screenshot shows the regular snaking sections, and the second screenshot shows the larger snaking sections:

  • Next up, there will be times when there are 2 spikes, an empty space, a gap, another empty space, and then 2 more spikes. This doesn't sound like much, but this is the cause of many deaths due to the fact that you can't simply jump over it. Either time your jump to land next to the final set of spikes and then jump immediately again, or jump over the first set, fall through the gap, and then jump the instant you touch land again. The screenshot shows both ways of getting through this obstacle:

  • Finally, there will be times when you will see 2 spikes, a small empty space (large ones won't work for obvious reasons), and then another spike. You can also see variations of this in the form of 1 spike, a small empty space, and then 2 more spikes. What the game wants you to do is jump to the empty space with a small jump and then jump again over the remaining spikes. However, if you look at the second screenshot, this entire obstacle is about the same length as four spikes in a row. Therefore, the easiest way to get past this variation is to simply hold down the jump as long as you can and entirely jump over each of the obstacles at once. In the first screenshot, the blue line indicates what the game wants you to do, and the red line indicates what I want you to do. The second screenshot shows the comparison of length between this variation and the four spike variation:

Unlike most Walkthroughs on this site, the most informative page of this Walkthrough is going to be the "General Hints and Tips" page. If you're one of those types that immediately clicks the "Story Walkthrough" page, please check out that page before progressing. It'll make the completion a hell of a lot easier. wink

Twins is one of those games that has a few really easy Achievements, along with a few Achievements that will make you want to test if your Nokia is a true Nokia. Starting off, you will get an Achievement for transforming into Twins mode 75 times. Keep in mind that all 75 transformations have to be done without closing the game. Doing this in one game is unnecessary and probably not possible:

  • Pairing

    Get twins mode 75 times

Another really easy miscellaneous Achievement requires you to collect some coins on your way to death. There will be countless opportunities to unlock this per game, and chances are that you'll do so by accident. If you somehow can't get it, simply jump at some coins, and then die on the way down:

  • Last fortune

    Make a jump that leads to a certain death, but get some coins in your way!

Another miscellaneous Achievement requires you to activate Twins mode and then instantly die 5 times in one game. The hardest part about this is surviving long enough to get 5 Twins power-ups. Once you collect a power-up, just crash ONE of your twins into the nearest spikes:

  • No love

    Let the twin crash right after spawning it 5 consecutives times in a game.

    No love

There is also an Achievement for collecting 500 coins. Coins are absolutely everywhere, so you should unlock this within your first few games:

Now we get to the hard stuff. Let's start off by tackling the 2,000 point Achievement. Tips for making it this far can be found on the "General Hints and Tips" page, but some tips specifically tied to this Achievement are as follows:

  • Abuse the snaking sections as long as they don't kill you
  • Only switch sides if you can collect coins safely
  • Twins mode quadruples your score, but it also greatly reduces the amount of coins that spawn. Avoid it at all costs. If you accidentally collect it, just let one of the twins die immediately
  • Play with your phone horizontally. I personally played it while scrolling left, because that's how I usually hold my phone, and I'm used to horizontally scrolling Platformers. Regardless, any horizontal mode will allow you to see your character better, because your fingers won't be in the way as much.

Reaching 2,000 points in one game will unlock:

  • Far away

    Get 2000 points in one session

For the next Achievement, we'll have to switch sides 50 times in one game. This is no easy task, and you'll have to survive about as long as 2,000 points while performing more dangerous maneuvers. Here are some tips tied to this Achievement specifically. Once again, you can check out the "General Hints and Tips" page for detailed and specific tips that apply to success in the game:

  • Don't go for coins. A lower score means less obstacles.
  • Only jump during the snaking sections if you can miss most of the coins.
  • Don't activate Twins mode, since gaps are way less frequent and end the mode.
  • On larger gaps, making a small jump can allow you to get 2 switches at once. Be careful when using this, however, since you need to be prepared for the obstacles on both sides of the phone.
  • Play with your phone horizontally for the sake of comfort and being able to see your screen better.

Switching sides 50 times in one game will unlock:

  • Bipolar

    Change side more than 50 times in one session

Next up is an Achievement that requires you to reach 800 points in Twins Mode. By this, you have to earn 800 points in Twins Mode in one game, but you can get said points off of multiple uses. Dodging a random set of obstacles on either side of the phone is very difficult since you need to tap each side for different amounts of time. That being said, here are some tips:

  • Get a friend. One person per side makes this way easier and would probably even make 800 in one usage very easy.
  • Your points are quadrupled, but coins are nowhere near as prevalent, so this takes longer than 800 points in regular mode.
  • Don't fall into the gaps. It ends the mode.
  • Play with your phone vertically. The hand positioning is much easier to control.

Fulfilling the requirements of the Achievement will unlock:

  • Conjoined

    Get 800 points in Twins mode in one session

    Conjoined
