What is it
The game starts with creating the car; children combine different parts to make a racer look as unique and fun as possible. Make it hover above ground, add huge wheels, or spray paint it bright pink – there are over 1000 combinations!
Next children can design their own racetrack – draw the shape, choose sand, dirt or concrete and add some stunts. Then choose a character to race with and off you go!
Through the races children can unlock extra car parts for designing their car, and trophies.

What our experts think
We really liked this fun and well animated app. Our little testers loved designing their own cars and washing them and this allowed children to express themselves creatively. The different cute characters were also real hit (as were their little noises when they were interacted with). Winning extra car parts to make new vehicles provided a good level of reward and motivation for the children, especially the older ones.
It would be even better if...
The navigation isn’t very intuitive so children missed features, e.g. tapping on the racetrack blueprint to design their own track or tapping on the character to change them. The app also took a long time to load between screens which frustrated some testers.
