Cars: Fast as Lightning is a customizable racing game that was released on iOS, Android and Windows Phone on October 9, 2014, featuring the characters from the Cars franchise.

Gameplay

Cars: Fast as Lightning combines elements of several different games, including Disney Infinity, Clash of Clans, CityVille, Nemo's Reef, and many others, and combines them into a customizable racing game using characters from the popular franchise. Players have a town that they can customize by constructing buildings and decorations that will provide them with coins. Coins can be used to purchase new buildings, as well as upgrade cars. Additionally, gems serve as a rarer type of currency, obtainable via real money, daily challenges, or the Gem Mine.

In addition to the town, race tracks are customizable as well, with more tracks being unlocked as players progress through the game. Tracks can be customized with different types of road pieces, including curves, hills, and more. These road pieces will give the player opportunities to perform tricks during races, awarding the player with a short boost.

In races, the player can do many different things to make themselves successful, including boosting, boost starting, performing tricks, or gaining XP. The XP meter will fill as the player gains XP, and when it fills, the player will be moved to the next level, unlocking new buildings and decorations.

Daily and weekly events are also featured as a way to obtain currency, and friends can be added through social media or by sharing friend codes.

Controls

Cars: Fast as Lightning uses a very simplified control scheme, consisting primarily of simple taps. When a player's car drives over a blue circle on a track, it will provide the player with a short boost if the screen is tapped while on one. Tricks can be performed by sliding a finger in the direction the arrow is demonstrating.

The pedal in the bottom right of the screen must be held in order for the player to accelerate. At the start of the race, if the pedal is tapped when the "Go!" appears, a boost start will be awarded to the player.

Game modes

Town

Radiator Springs is where all of the buildings are stored, each one awarding coins to the player. As more buildings are placed, more currency will be awarded when the player opens the game up. In order to expand the town, a fee must be payed in order for Bessie, the cranes, pitties (that have a lookalike to Muggsy Liftsome) and bulldozers to pave a new road. Each time an extension is bought, the next extension will cost higher.

All of the players' cars will be seen driving around town, alongside Sarge and Lizzie. Occasionally, a car will want to go to a certain building, and when they are brought to it, the player will be awarded with either an XP star, a coin, a fuel can or a gem.

Various unique buildings can be built to, including the Dinoco Tent, the Gem Mine, the Car Wash, and the Movie Theater.

Race

In order to progress in the game, the player must continually race against various different opponents. The ones that will award trophies are displayed next to the finish line of whatever track the player is playing on, with various different cars driving around the track. These cars can be raced against for additional XP, as well as a chance to earn a sticker for a new paint job.

The practice cars can either be AI characters or human players, with computer characters using the image of the character, with human players having a blue "friend" icon.

You can even travel to Radiator Springs or Russia.

Characters

Playable characters

There are 20 playable characters in Cars: Fast as Lightning, consisting of 13 Cars characters and 8 Cars 2 characters. Todd Marcus is the only car that is unlocked after the tutorial, and all other cars must be unlocked by earning their stickers. Pyotr is the only car that doesn't appear in the film. Long, Pyotr & Max cost gems.

Unlocking criteria

Unlike previous Cars games, Cars: Fast as Lightning uses an orderly unlocking system. Once every race is won as one character, the next one will be unlocked, and so forth. Winning these races will provide the player with a "sticker". Once all of these are collected and every race is the won, the next character will be unlocked.

Each character has 2 or more extra paint jobs, which can be unlocked by earning stickers in practice races.
