Tips and Tricks
Rat MovesTouch: briefly touch Ralph, removing your finger again quickly
Shake: briefly but firmly shake the device back and forth
Pinch: place two fingers on Ralph, move them towards each other and lift them up again. You can grab from different directions: from up and down, from right and left, or even diagonally.
Tap: knock quickly twice on Ralph.
Stretch: place two fingers on Ralph and push them apart, in whichever directions you want.
Flick: place a finger on Ralph and push it quickly in one direction, lifting it at the same time. Be careful you don’t push Ralph off the screen!
Press: Place a finger on Ralph and hold it there briefly
Pat: place a finger on Ralph, move it back and forth and remove it.
Tilt: if you’re holding the device upright, tilt it backwards or forwards.
If it’s horizontal, turn it so that it’s facing the floor or the ceiling. Be careful:
this makes Ralph slide and he could slide off the screen.
Drum: Tap Ralph briefly 3 times in a row.
Scratch: Place 3 fingers on Ralph and slide them upwards or downwards.
Spin: Place 2 fingers on Ralph and move them in a circular motion (clockwise or anti-clockwise).
Turn: Turn to the left or right, so that the device points in a new direction.
Turning only works if you’re not holding the device too upright beforehand.
Careful: turning will make Ralph slide and he could slide off the screen.
