Game Description

Helpful Nail is a casual web browser arcade game in which you need to clip the nail correctly in a wooden piece with your hammer. The fun lies in controlling the ever-imbalanced nail that is moving both sides while the hammer is at work, the player needs to control it by using in-game controls.

The gameplay and graphics of the game are both quite overwhelming and enjoyable for the players. All that the players need to do to win is to sharpen their balancing act and score points by hitting the nails with bull’s eye accuracy.

Do you think you can do that in this tricky online IO casual game? Well, we will have to see about that – let us learn how to play the Helpful Nail!


How to Play Helpful Nail


Earning XP & Leveling Up

To score points in this game, players need to be precise in controlling the nails. In every round, there is a meter below the wood piece and the nail. That meter has four colors on it: yellow, red, green, and blue in the center.

If your arrow is on or near the red, it means you are way off the target and you will lose points if the hammer hits. Four hits on the red zone and you are out! The yellow zone is relatively safe and gives you the minimum points.

The green zone is close to the perfect position and gives you 10+ points, while the blue in the center is the bull’s eye. If a player manages to hit the blue in the center, they not only get the highest points but a continuous hit on the blue will be counted as a combo streak with additional marks.
