    • Travel for as long as you can without hitting any of the road blocks.
      • Your car automatically moves forward.
        • Hit the breaks to slow down to better avoid moving obstacles (i.e. other cars).
        • If you hold down the breaks too much, you will burn out the tires of your car.
        • Keep rolling down the road until you run out of fuel.
          • You get an additional chance to keep going after this.
      • If you hit any obstacle on the road, the game gives you one more chance to resume.
        • If you crash again after that, it’s an automatic game over.
        • Hit a flying box to make your car fly, which will let you bypass the obstacles.
      • Activate turbo to gain a speed boost.
        • Roll down the road enough to charge your turbo mode.
        • While on turbo, you become temporarily invincible.
      • After both the flying and turbo modes, your car becomes temporarily invincible, giving you time to adjust to steering the car again.
    • Flying
      • Run into the orange box with wings to fly.
      • While you are flying you collect any coins you drive past, but fly above other vehicles and obstacles.
    • Scoring
      • You earn points based on how fast and how far you travel.
      • To earn more points, do the following:
        • Upgrade you car.
        • Keep dodging the obstacles.
    • Collect coins.
      • Use your coins to buy vehicle upgrade at the bottom row of the welcome screen.
      • Buying upgrades will improve your long-term performance in the game.
        • Fuel: Increases your fuel supply & how far you can drive before running out of fuel.
        • Wheels: Increases how long you can slow down.
        • Turbo: Increases how long turbo mode lasts. If you run into other vehicles while using turbo it helps replenish your fuel.
        • Engine: Increases your speed.
      • Upgrade costs
        • Expect to pay more for better upgrades.
        • Each upgrade has a ramp-up cost with the cost for each incremental upgrade being the cost of the prior upgrade plus 10 plus 20 times the upgrade sequence minus one.
        • Upgrades by round cost 10, 40, 90, 160, 250, 360, 490, 650, etc.
    • Strategy
      • You drive faster than the other vehicles, so be ready to use the brake if you are coming up on one. If you feel trapped and can not slow down then accelerate to activate your turbo and become invincible.
      • The center lane is the best lane to be in when there are no obstacles because it allows you to change to either side lane in a single move & does not require multiple moves to go anywhere.
      • Drive into every flight box you can as you are invincible while flying AND the world below has more coins in it at the same time.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like simple driving games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
