Games publisher PikPok and DreamWorks Animation have announced that Turbo Fast, the mobile game inspired by DreamWorks Animation’s Turbo franchise, has been downloaded more than 50 million times. To celebrate this milestone, the app has been updated with a new challenge mode for players to sink their teeth into. This introduces a head-to-head multiplayer mode to the game, alongside new track content.
In Turbo Fast, players race as a snail, taking on 13 different tracks across multiple race types (slalom, one-on-one rival races, time trials, etc.). These tracks may offer ramps, speed boosts, stunt rails and other objects for interaction, giving players the chance to speed ahead of the competition with the right moves. Users collect tomatoes as they play, which can be used to upgrade their snail’s performance, or simply add some visual punch to their racer.Turbo Fast offers multiple control schemes, pre-race power-ups like extra speed, fuel and time (which are helpful depending on the race type), the ability to record racing moments and watch and/or share instant replays, leaderboards for comparing one’s rank against friends and others around the world and light missions that reward tomatoes for accomplishing specific tasks, among other features.
With the game’s new challenge mode, players can login with Facebook to challenge their friends to asynchronous battles, or play against strangers. In each battle, players take turns completing a race, with the goal being to complete the event in the shortest amount of time possible. The player with the shortest time wins a prize pool of tomatoes.
“Working on this property has been a delight for the studio, and hitting the 50 million download mark has been an amazing achievement,” said Mario Wynands, managing director of PikPok, in a statement. “Existing players and new fans alike will love the new features and content we are bringing to the game.”
