Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Cheats And Tips
Get ahead of the pack with these game-changing hints.
Even though its freemium structure gets in the way more often than not, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a moderately enjoyable kart racing game. On that note, we have a few tips that will help you earn first place victories.
How do I use the firework power-up in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
This is a simple firework projectile that can stop your enemies in one hit. To fire it ahead of you, tap the power-up and swipe upward. To shoot it behind you, tap it and swipe downward.
How do I use the Blowfish power-up in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
The blowfish works similar to a mine, as you can either drop it behind you to hit enemies or lob it ahead, though that puts it in your path as well. To do this, tap your finger on the power-up and either swipe upward or downward.
How do I use the Ice power-up in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
This gives you three quick ice shots that you can use to stop your enemy cold. (Get it, cold? Because it's ice...never mind.) To shoot, simply tap on the power-up and swipe upward to shoot forward, or downward to shoot behind you.
How do I use the Glove power-up in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
This protects you from incoming attacks for a small amount of time. To activate it, simply tap the power-up icon and it'll pop up.
How do I use the Drone power-up in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
This is the equivalent of a homing missile, and works best on enemies ahead of you. Simply tap on the power-up and fire it upward, and it'll lock on to your closest adversary. You can also shoot it behind you when swiping downward, though it doesn't have lock-on capabilities going that way.
How do I use the All-Star power-up in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
You won't get this power-up all the time, but when you do, activating it will give you a higher amount of speed and let you run right through opponents. To use it, just tap the power-up when you're ready. NOTE: it's best to save it for a final lap, in case you're running behind.
How can I earn turbo boosts in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
There are four ways. The first is picking up a general power-up boost after running over one of the question bowls. Just tap the power-up to use it.
The second is with power strips that are colored pink and littered all over the tracks. Run over or through these and you'll get a quick boost.
The third is with tricks. You perform tricks in mid-air by swiping on the screen after coming off a jump. Land these tricks successfully and you'll earn a boost.
Finally, there's drifting. If you take corners tight enough without hitting the walls - by hitting the drift button without losing any acceleration - you'll begin to earn power. This can be leveled up to three times, so the longer you drift, the more boost you'll earn. For some events, you'll actually need to master drifting in order to complete the race.
Can I earn additional power-ups in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
Yes, before each race, you'll have the option to use either rings or stars in your possession to play a quick jackpot event. You can play anywhere between one to three reels to earn power-ups. These take effect during your next race, so use them as soon as you can.
How do I earn rings and stars in Sonic & Al-Stars Racing Transformed?
You'll need to complete races in order to earn stars and rings. If you get first place, you'll really clean up, though you'll also earn them in second and third place as well. These are used to unlock other content in the game, including additional drivers, certain events and difficulty settings.
Do I need to buy anything in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed?
The game does provide an option where you can buy stars ranging from $4.99 to $19.99, depending how many you want. Stars can then be used to unlock content, or converted into rings to gain access to new difficulty settings. These give you the opportunity to earn more stars and rings, though you'll want to get through the easy races first.
There's also the option to buy direct content through the game, such as being able to race in any event on any difficulty for $9.99, or unlocking character packs ranging from $4.99 to $9.99, such as "Rivals" or "Villains." It's completely optional, though.
