Arcade Mode

Tether has 4 different arcade modes to compete in for high scores:

  • Free
    Score points based on your speed and direction. Speedy upward motion gets the most points, while staying still or falling gets the least. Avoid colliding with blocks for as long as you can.

  • Timed
    Like free mode, but with a 2 minute time limit,

  • Pursuit
    Score by evading an inexorable pursuer for as long as possible. In this mode you can smash into blocks at will. If you are going fast enough, you'll break them apart enabling you to escape more easily.

  • Daily Race
    Race to the finish. Score by getting to the objective as fast as possible. The generated world for this mode is changed every day and the leaderboard is reset daily as well.
