Cars: Fast as Lightning Review

All the authors that work on this project are required to follow our guidelines. To make the most out of the game testing process, our authors launch it on various smartphones and tablets with not only the latest OS', but also the previous ones.

Cars: Fast as Lightning is a free and customizable racing game released on both iOS and Android that features the characters from the well-known Cars franchise.

Two main characters, Lightning McQueen and Mater, are hosting a race in Radiator Springs and they need some speed from new participants. So, here you step in. You don’t just race fast but also build your own Radiator Springs and transform it from a humble town to a thriving city.

Play as popular Cars character, take part in nitro-charged, turbo-boosted races, and shine like Lightning.

Graphics 4/5

Cars: Fast and Lightning features cartoon-accurate graphics which will satisfy the fans of the franchise, especially the younger audience. While it is not up to the high bar of a Pixar animated production, the game certainly got the authentic feel.

Having Wilson in the voice cast also helps, and the characters all move and display the traits you’d expect. The racing action is appropriately cartoony, which adds up to an agreeable overall package.

Gameplay 4,5/5

The game combines elements of several different titles like Clash of Clans, Disney Infinity, Nemo’s Reef, CityVille, and many others. You have a town which you can customize by constructing various buildings and decorations that produce coins.

These coins can be used to upgrade cars and purchase new buildings for your town. Besides, gems serve as a rarer type of currency, which is obtainable via real money and daily challenges.

Race tracks are customizable too, with more tracks being unlocked as far as you progress through the game. You can customize the tracks with different types of road pieces, including hills, curves, and more. These road pieces give you an opportunity to perform tricks during races and get awarded with a short boost.

You can do many different things in races to make themselves successful, including performing tricks, boosting, boost starting, or gaining XP. The XP meter fills as the player gains XP, and when it’s full, you will be moved to the next stage, unlocking new buildings and decorations.

You can also invite your friends to the game via social media and by sharing friend codes

Controls 4,5/5

Cars: Fast as Lightning has a simplified control scheme which consists primarily of simple taps. When your car drives over a blue circle on a track, it will provide you with a short boost if you tap the screen on time. You can also perform tricks by sliding a finger in the same direction the arrow is pointing.

To accelerate, you have to hold the pedal placed in the bottom right of the screen. A the beginning of the race, if the pedal is tapped simultaneously with the “Go!” sign appearance, you will be awarded with a boost start.

Overall, the controls work fine, but there is one common glitch. Whenever a car is sent to some building, it goes to this building, driving through another car if there is one in the path.

Replay Value 4/5

You’ll hardly want to replay the game from the beginning, but there is a solid length to it thanks to the unlocking system. Once you win the race as one character, the next one will be unlocked, and so forth.

The races you won will provide you with a "sticker.” Once all of them are collected, and every race is won, the next character will be unlocked.

Plus, every character has 2 extra paint jobs, which also can be unlocked by earning stickers.

In-app purchases

If you want to speed up the coins and gems earnings, you can pay real money and purchase them.

The prices vary, depending on the amount of this in-game currency.

So, Cars: Fast as Lightning offers such in-app purchases:

  • Bundle Pack $0.99
  • Pail of Gems $1.99
  • Cone of Gems $3.99
  • Truckload of Gems $5.99
  • Trailer of Gems $9.99
  • Garage of Gems $49.99
  • Speedway of Gems $99.99


Cars: Fast as Lightning gives us no reason to be suspicious of its quality after all. Any kids who are still fascinated with the Cars franchise are going to love the game, and parents should appreciate that it’s a genuine adaptation without pushing anything, but cartoonish graphics and fun gameplay.

It successfully pays tribute to the Cars franchise, with familiar characters, locations, and even voice acting by Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen.



Cars: Fast as Lightning is an entertaining city-building and racing game, though it's probably too simplistic for anyone except young kids.

Pros : Simple controls that anyone can master;
Authentic cartoonish graphics;
Pleasant mix of racing and city-building;
Nice unlocking system.

Cons : Too simplistic to hold the attention of teens or adults.
Many buildings need to be purchased with ingame currency.
