Hot Wheels World's Best Driver Cheats And Tips
Our guide to the new Hot Wheels racing game.
Although it's not even close to being the best racing game available for iOS devices, Hot Wheels World's Best Driver can be a tolerable enough arcade racing affair if you can get used to the rather cluttered control system. There are a decent amount of tracks to unlock here too, so if you can do that, you'll certainly be rewarded for your trouble.
Here are some tips to help get you started in the game.
What's the best way to earn medals in Hot Wheels: World's Best Driver?
For the most part, maintaining a first place finish is a guarantee that you'll walk away with three medals in a race. There are exceptions to the rule, such as time-based challenges, but most events usually work as a first (three medals), second (two medals) and third (one medal) place system.
To do this, you'll want to maintain a top speed. Look for boost points throughout each race, which are highlighted in green. Once you run through these, your car will begin to pick up speed. The more you run through, the closer you'll get to top speed - and the nearer you'll get to that first place win.
A word of warning, however. As you get faster, control of your car will get a little bit more slippery. Use small left and right taps on the steering to get over to the next speed point, otherwise you're likely to end up in a spin-out.
What do medals unlock in Hot Wheels: World's Best Driver?
Each tier has six levels with three stages each, plus unlockable events. The more medals you collect over the course of each race, the more events you'll be able to unlock. So it's best to always shoot for three medals on your first run if you can. If you somehow finish with less, don't worry - you can always go back and try again.
How many tiers are available in Hot Wheels: World's Best Driver?
There are four in all. You'll start in Green Super Fast, where you'll learn the basics about speed boosts and maintaining acceleration with your car. Next up is Blue High-Tech, which involves the usage of power-ups - mainly speed boosts. Yellow Powerful introduces bigger vehicles to the fray, including monster trucks. Finally, Red Outrageous introduces a variety of stunt courses, but shouldn't be tackled until you've mastered the other three, due to their high level of challenge. You've been warned.
What customization options are available in Hot Wheels: World's Best Driver?
There are several available, but they're purely cosmetic, with custom paint jobs that can be unlocked with tokens you earn from racing events.
How do I purchase special abilities for each tier in Hot Wheels: World's Best Driver?
These can be bought using in-game tokens you earn over the course of each race. They unlock a special ability you can use as soon as you get "On Fire" by running through enough boosters, such as an additional turbo boost. They do provide a little extra oomph when it comes to getting over the finish line, so you might consider investing here.
Do I need to spend real money to buy tokens in Hot Wheels: World's Best Driver?
No. In fact, the option isn't even available. To get these tokens, run over them as they appear on the track - they usually appear in strands or separated from speed boosts. Picking them up will automatically add them to your collection. The more you get, the more you can buy - and you can always revisit a course if you miss them the first time around.
