Robin and Wonder Woman are both 18.

Unlock new characters and pay for upgrades.
Collect power ups to speed up, collect coins & slow down your opponents.
No matter where you finish you start every race in last place, needing to work your way past 13 competitors to finish in first.
Your character automatically moves forward.
Over time, and depending on their stats (upgraded or otherwise), they gradually accelerate.
As your character accelerates, they move past some of the other players.
To maintain your momentum, you must avoid crashing into other players and the sides of the racetrack.
Stay as close to the center of the track as you can to minimize the risk of collisions.
If an opponent is near the center of the track on a sharp corner try to pass them on the inside lane.
Each tournament consists of 5 different race tracks.
You score leaderboard points for how you finish in each race.
first place is worth 10 points
second place is worth 8 points
third place is worth 6 points
fourth place is worth 4 points
fifth place is worth 2 points
sixth place is worth 1 point
The scores are summed across races to determine the series champion.
Upgrades come in two flavors: cosmetic and performance.
We recommend going for performance upgrades first.
Focus on improving a character’s weakest stats first.
The stat upgrades have a ramping cost. Be sure to choose characters with higher stats to reduce the cost of bolstering your upgrades. Default character stats are published below.
The game has 3 power ups
Coin magnet: attracts the coins to you without getting near them. This is the most important power up as it not only attracts coins but also attracts the other power ups when you pass them.
Lighting: fires a lightning bolt at an opponent in front of you, stopping them dead in their tracks. This upgrade can be frustrating because you often end up crashing into the stopped scooter, giving them a boost of speed while slowing you down to a stop.
Fire: Gives you a boost in speed. This is a great upgrade, but be careful collecting it going around a corner.
Tips and tricks
Steering is the most important stat in this game.
Crashes are the most frustrating part of this race.
Hitting into walls will slow you down to a near stop.
Hitting other characters will slow you down to a complete stop & sometimes they turn to try to hit you, so it is best to try to stay away from them.
Try to keep a broad distance between you and them, and if you pass them on a corner try to be on the inside of them (if you are on the inside and are turning full force they likely won’t be able to hit you & if you are outside of them and they swerve out at you and you have to let up your turn to avoid them you will likely crash into the outside wall).
The best spot to pass opponents is either on straightaways or when you have an extra boost of speed from jumping a ramp or collecting a power up.
The character with the best chance of winning is the one with the best steering stat.
Of the default characters, Anais, Gumball, and Apple have the best steering stats.
Spend most of your early races collecting coins over attempting to win. Placing well can earn you additional coins, but upgrading is vital to competing across all 5 races.
Keep to the middle of the track to avoid collisions. Try to pass competing racers inside of them on corners, or after hitting a turbo or jumping over a ramp that gives you a bit more speed.
The game is suited for skater and scooter fans of all ages.
The game has no adult themed content.
