10. Swipe Fast, But Not Too Fast
WriterParty.com notes that you should swipe fast but not fast to the point that your swipes don't register:
Swipe quickly, but don’t swipe so quickly that the game neglects to read the entire swipe, or else your axe could disappear after a very short period of time, causing your combos to be broken or enemies not to be killed. This is best to learn early on in the game so that later on, when you have better axes and armor (and can thus afford to make more mistakes), you end up skilled enough to go on VERY long runs.
