Cars: Fast as Lightning is an insanely fun racing game which features some surprisingly impressive graphics and a whole host of upgrades and other goodies that can be obtained via in-app purchase. Some of the purchases appear to be a little overpriced but this is an otherwise excellent game aside from this.

Pros and Cons


  • Officially licensed game based on the Disney Pixar Cars movie series

  • Customize your cars with all kinds of cosmetic upgrades
  • Build your own Radiator Springs with more than 30 interactive buildings

  • There have been a few complaints from users regarding minor bugs but the developer appears to be on top of this with improvements being made on an ongoing basis.
  • Some of the in-app purchases are a little on the expensive side but they are purely optional and this does not appear to be a Pay-to-Win title.
