Windows 8.1 App Watch: Cars: Fast As Lightning

Cars: Fast As Lightning

How about two good racing games in the same week? We already got Beach Buggy Racing at the star of the week, and now Cars: Fast as Lightning is here towards the end of it.

Well, not really the end — it still is Wednesday in most parts of the globe.

Anyway, this time around two of the biggest mobile game developers around have joined forces to develop this game, which itself is based on the popular Cars franchise of animated films. Disney and Gameloft bring this new free multiplatform title.

A look at the official description:

“Lightning McQueen and Mater are hosting a Radiator Springs racing EXTRAVAGANZA, and they’re going to need some speed! Are you up to the challenge?

Race and play as popular Cars characters with fast, nitro-charged, turbo-boosted racing! Then build your own Radiator Springs, home of Lightning and his buddies! This is your time to shine and be as fast as Lightning!”

You get the usual goodness you’d expect from the names behind this game — it is bright, colorful, fun, highly playable and even addictive in some sense. You can race with characters from the film, while there also is the option of customizing vehicles with paint jobs.

Ironically, there are some performance issues and lags, but nothing that cannot be fixed by updates. It is available for all versions of Windows, 32-bit, 64-bit and ARM, though sadly not as a universal app.
