Timing is critical in order to succeed at calming down your dinosaur. For the tapping game, make sure that the icon is blue before tapping. Tapping too early or too late will count as a miss. Also, make sure that you tap directly on the numbered hexagons, in the order that they appear. During the slider portion, make sure that the indicator bar is fully inside the yellow section. You must get the timing right the first time. If you wait for the indicator bar to come back around, this will count as a miss.

Here are some other suggestions to help you with your timing:

-Make sure your device is able to run the game at optimal levels. We recommend having 1.5 GB of RAM and 2 GB of free memory
-Close any unused or unnecessary apps from the background by opening up your device's multi-task bar and swiping away any running apps to close them.
-Try closing and reopening the game.
