Jump Over Obstacles and Avoid Enemies

Roach Race has a simple mechanic, which is to dodge the fences and holes laid on the ground and avoid enemies flying around the screen.

Roach can double jump to extend its airtime, and can be useful if you want to avoid landing on a fence below.

Collect Food To Get Points

The main goal of this arcade game is to obtain points and get a high score.

You will slowly get points while Roach is running, but this can be sped up by collecting apples which are worth 20 points, and by collecting carrots which makes Roach run on two legs and gallop faster.

Use Glitches Effectively

When you press the jump button thrice, you will be able to make Roach glitch itself and drop back down to the ground immediately. This will let you dodge any flying enemies that you might end up colliding with which will end your run.

Glitching also gives Roach invulnerability if used when the bar is full, although it will take a few seconds before it can be activated again.
