4. Keep Your Fish Near The Center at The Start of the Game
— Matt DePalma (@mattdepalm) February 12, 2014
The columns are randomly placed at the start of every level so there's really no way to remember which column will end up. At the start of every game, try to keep your fish near the center of the screen. This way, you'll have a 50/50 chance to hopping between the spaces of a high column or dropping low enough to clear a low column.
