How to Get High Scores

The trajectory of the game is quite simple. Each time it turns slightly left or right depending on its initial direction.

If the emoji lands a second time to the left, shift the pill bar a little to the left each time until the emoji completes that direction, and after covering the left side, the momentum will shift to right side or vice versa.

So all you need to do is figure out its trajectory in the first two or three rotation and you will catch to its speed without much effort.

And there you have it, a fun little game of pong that you can play on Instagram using any emoji of your choice. Now, is this game good? Yes, it is. Is it fun? It sure is. Should you tell your friends about this new hidden Instagram game? Absolutely.

This fun Instagram game can keep track of your high scores and will follow through no matter what emoji you use to activate the game or in whose DM’s you’ve sent the emoji to start the game. As you progress through the level, the background of the game starts to get darker.
