Geometry Dash Guide For Beginners

Hi, I’m R4CC00NY and I have been playing Geometry Dash for almost 1000 Hours, so I decided, why not make a Guide for beginners who (almost) don’t know about anything?


English is not my first Language, so I’m sorry typinging mistakes.

If there are any.

Also this is my first Guide.

The Basics (Controls)

To start off easy, Jumping can be done with Left Mouse Click; Space; UpArrow; (A) Button on Controller; (RB) Button on Controller.

Portal & GameModes

Going through Portals changes your Gamemode, there are a few different Gamemodes.

  • Ship
  • Ball
  • UFO
  • Wave
  • Robot

  • Mirror (Left&Right)
  • Resizer (Small&Normal)

  • Portals (Input&Output)
  • Gravity Switch

Orbs & Platforms

Orbs and Platforms play a big Role in Geometry Dash.

There are multiple Orbs/Platforms with specific attribute.

Pink – Low Jump ; Like Jumping normally

Yellow – Higher Jump ; Normal Jump x2/x3

Red – Super High Jump (Introduced in Fingerdash)

Community Levels Overview

Being in the Main Menu makes you think:

Left is the Icon Customizer, Middle the Play button, but what about the right one?

The Right one takes you to the “place” where Geometry Dash users make, play, rate and comment on other user-made levels.

The first Screen when clicking on it gives you the following buttons:

  • Create
  • Saved
  • Scores
  • Quests
  • Daily
  • Map Packs
  • Gauntlets
  • Featured
  • Hall of Fame
  • Search


Here you can create your own Levels.

Level Editor later in this Guide.


Levels you already played. (Only Community Levels)


The Leaderboard of Geometry Dash:

  • Top 100: Top 100 Geometry Dash Players
  • Friends: How good you are in comparison to your friends.
  • Global: Your global rank
  • Creators: The best level makers


Completing Quests gives you Diamonds, which you can get Icons with.

3 Quests are given Daily.


The Daily Level, completing it gives you Diamonds aswell. 1/day

Map Packs:

Every Pack includes 3 User Levels with a different Theme each.


Kind of like Map Packs but with more reward. (Diamonds, Orbs, Chests, …)


The Featured Levels. Levels get featured by Moderators.

To get featured the level must be atleast “long”.

Hall of Fame:

No Leaderboard, Levels.

Like Featured levels but better, called “Epic”.


You can search Levels here.

You can either type the Name or the ID of the level.


Every Level, whether Main Levels or Community ones, have a special number of Stars you receive when beating them.

1 = Auto (Levels being played automatically)

2 Stars = Easy

3 Stars = Normal

4-5 Stars = Hard

6-7 Stars = Harder

8-9 Stars = Insane

10 Stars = Demon

Stars is the game’s scoring system.

Even though 10 Stars are Demon, there are different kind of Demons.

Demon Kinds:

  • Demon (General)
  • Easy Demon
  • Medium Demon
  • Hard Demon
  • Insane Demon
  • Extreme Demon

Level Editor

The Level Editor. Yes. One of the best things in this game.

Starting off with the Overview.

Main Menu:

Click the Right Button, then create.

In “Create”:

Now click “NEW” (Located in the bottom right)

Now type in the Level Name, not writing anything in it will call it “Unnamedx”

(x = Any Unused Number, example: Unnamed1, Unnamed2, …)

Then the description, if you want.

After that click the button with the Hammer and the Wrench (Left one)

Where you are now is called: “The Editor”
