  • Multiplayer mode is for 2 and up to 6 players (each player must have their own device to control the car)
These cars are built to be challenging at the beginning, so the more you play the better you will be able to control them! That said, there are a couple of things that can help you drive the cars better:
  • Adjust your speed: Tap on the speed icon at the top left corner of the screen. The slower you are, the easier it is to control the car.
  • Change the type of controller: The game comes with a pre-set controller (up/down and left/right buttons). However, you can change this into a joystick! Go to the settings menu at the top right corner and select the joystick mode. Give it a try.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Right on the goalpost is an IR beam that registers the scoring of a goal. If the ball scores a goal, this beam is disabled for a few seconds to give you time to grab your ball out of the goal and reset for the next play. If you place your hand or other object through the goal any other time, a goal will trigger. The Host can remove a false goal score via the app.

Make sure your car’s tires are clean and the arena mat is stretched fully with no lumps or creases.
