Failing a level will take away a life – represented by the heart on the upper left corner of the screen. You have at most five hearts when playing, and your lives refill over time. When you run out of lives, you can buy them with real money or ask friends to give you some. But of course, we’ve put together even more tips so you can avoid losing lives altogether.

Firstly, keep solving levels without doing activities. Try to get as many stars from the levels as you can. By the time you run out of lives, you will have collected many stars.

Collect Stars and lose all your Lives first before doing Activities for maximum efficiency.

Don’t spend all the stars in one go, though! Just complete enough activities to get you through one day in Austin’s life. You will usually be rewarded with an infinite lives bonus, which lets you play unlimited levels for 30 minutes.

This way, after playing many levels and losing all your lives, you can easily get your lives back. This will let you collect more stars within the 30-minute time limit, which should then be enough to spend on another day’s worth of activities. You can keep playing forever if you do it like this!

With that in mind, refrain from doing Activities that will potentially end the day unless you’re planning to end the game session soon.

There are also other ways to get the infinite lives bonus in-game, like in events and competitions. Be sure to make the most out of them!
