Outback 0m

Outback is the fourth zone in the Sky Zoo. It introduces the new challenges of fire and drop bears, and also features numerous small water patches scattered around the stampede zone. Fire can be found on most trees and bushes, especially past 1000m, as well as on small campfires on the ground. If the player runs into fire, they will catch fire and must find a puddle of water to run through in order to put the fire out. If the player does not do this within a set frame of time, they will burn and fall off the animal they are riding or drop directly down while in mid-air in the middle of a jump. Reviving or digging underground on an angry wombat will also put out fire. Outback can be unlocked when the player upgrades their ship from Mountains 5 to Outback 1. The overall colour scheme is mainly a dusty orange-red colour to resemble the Australian desert, also known as the outback. Later on, it turns a lighter yellow colour followed by a dark red between 1000m and 2000m and after 2000m respectively. It has rocky walls, making simply going near a wall a risky ploy, and features sections without walls which the player can fall off on one side only. It also has extremely narrow sections, and occasionally at the start, a large central rock which cannot be smashed. Finally, the Outback is unique in that it has windmills and outhouses which can be smashed by animals capable of smashing rocks, which in Outback 5 will make the Spying Fox appear.

Tips and Strategies Edit

Upon release, Outback was designed to be the most difficult map, and consequently, animals were nerfed again and overall difficult to use, especially in a Zoo Coin sense. It is recommended to use a running or flying animal up until 2000m, where slower animals, such as camels, flying animals, being flying foxes, and others should be used. Sheep are extremely useful in Outback due to their abilities to push other sheep away and to not reduce the player's lasso size, as well as their stable pace. Wombats are also effective in their ability to act as a safety net if the player hits an obstacle or another animal when angry. Alternatively, drop bears can be utilised for their ability to be immune to obstacles and to eat other animals. Emus and kangaroos are not recommended due to their extreme speed and erratic movement respectively.
