No replies / interest whatsoever?!

Find that surprising!

This is a decent little game in the style of motocross games of yore - tilt and pitch control across some properly interesting tracks.

Came here to find how other people had broken l28.

Will clearly have to search elsewhere

This game is really great. I found it by accident, since there is no traffic in this thread. The multiplayer is surprisingly good and works cross platform iOS to Android.

It seems like there is no end to it though? My friend and I are up to round 17. I guess it just keeps going? If it never ends, will the MP area eventually be a huge list of ongoing matches?

when you unlock the second row of vehicles it becomes more frustrating than fun. this brown truck you start with is totally useless and you gather 50 coins per run. might have to delete, even though it was a fun grind up to now.

I'm enjoying the second set far more than the first. The pulleys and exploding pipes in the second tracks are pretty neat elements and I found Cruise Bruiser to be much better than some of the stinkers from the first series. Also I just ran the first track from the second series (#11), and you get 270 coins per run, exactly the same as race #1, both of which are pretty easy to run on repeat for upgrades. I'm into my third car from series two (just unlocked series three) and I still use that car for some races.

The second track set is good one when the vehicles are sufficiently upgraded. I go back to that set often to try for better cars, and also for a break from the notorious level 28 in set 3 which I've been stuck at forever. The Cruise Bruiser is one of my favourites, along with RDO2 which drives as well as it looks. All the tracks are imaginatively designed though and require some care to navigate and complete successfully. Much more interesting than just blasting through on full throttle.

....doesn't look too bad! Absolutely NOT like the Hot Wheels I had when I was a kid!! I'll never forget the stupid orange slats you'd push together with those little purple connectors, sticking a book on one end, and making the tracks extend down off the table and trying to make the perfect loop-de-loop on the floor! Grab your favorite car, put it on the top, and watch it fly down the track and get stuck underneath the couch, heh-heh!! The simple toys back in the 50's and 60's were just that. Simple and bare-bones! It's so funny to remember how the black and white commercials back then made the toys seem SO exciting on TV! And then when you got 'em home there was always something missing..... the scenarios they created on TV were so exciting looking! And then you'd have to pretend everything was the way you wanted it to be! Imagine. Just having a set of toy soldiers, or whatever, and having your friends over, and you'd pretend you were at war using nothing but your imagination, with your own sound effects-- POW! Whooosh! BAM!!! Reearrrr!! POOF! Pick up the soldier and slam him against another one, sending him flying off the table, effectively killing him! LOL! Dig a hole in the dirt and make fox-holes for your fighters! Dig another hole, fetch the hose and fill it with water and make a lake! So funny now! But kids today don't have to use just their own imaginations. The toys/games bring everything with them these days! It's right there! Makes their own noises, moves on their own, lights up!!! You just go along with it! SO much cooler now, but back then it was just as cool to us, though, right?! We could never imagine the stuff they have now!! The way we played was so different! You'd actually go OUTSIDE to play, ride your bike, get all dirty!!
Okay, I'm done with my little flashback, and back in the present! 🤙🏼 Thinking about Hot Wheels made me think of a different time, and the different ways we used to play back then! Hey, dont give me a rash of s#*! for this! I'm sure you fellow old farts can relate to this, and if you live long enough, you youngsters will someday remember back in the day and how different you played then with fondness! 😉

Nice to see a game with the Hot Wheels logo and I'm sure a fun game but yea they aren't the ones I had when younger. Actually I still have many of the original cars from the first/second year production....Beatnik Bandit, Silhouette, Hot Heap, Fleetside, Jack Rabbit Special, Splittin' Image, Twin Mill, Turbofire, Deora, etc. They've got replica's now but still not the same as having the originals. Bigrand1 nailed it for when I was a kid too. Yea, them's the day's of play.

Where did everything go?

Spent a couple hundred dollars buying cars and now (second time this has happened) all cars are locked and I need to repurchase all of them to get back to level 48 where my son left off. Anyone have an idea why all cars are locked and he's sent back to level 1? Extremely frustrating (and expensive!!).
