Crash of Cars is a fun new entry in the realm of multiplayer beat 'em ups. It's basically bumper cars off the rails -- players drive around in vehicles of their choosing -- anything from a mini-van to the weinermobile in all of its glory -- smashing into and shooting at their opponents. It's good, silly fun.
With that said, playing against real humans is always more of a challenge, especially as a newcomer. When you first start, you don't have an impressive assortment of cars to choose from, so you're quite squishy. Use these tips to help you make your way to the top.
Scoop up all of the boxes
Boxes contain weapons and other goodies, but you can only have one active at a time. That doesn't mean you can't swoop in and grab boxes to keep your enemies from improving their loadouts, though. Pick up any boxes you see to maintain your advantage.
Experiment with different cars
Different vehicles have different abilities that suit individual playstyles. The pirate ship, for example, can shoot cannons in a 360 degree radius for sweeping damage. As you collect more cars, try each of them out to see what they bring to the table. You'll be able to figure out which vehicles suit you best.
Don't rely exclusively on your weapons
Weapons are fun, but in the heat of battle, sometimes you don't have time to line up that perfect attack before a bigger and badder car rolls in and squishes you. You can also do some serious damage simply crashing into other cars. Play it safe, though, and approach from the back or to the sides.
Practice against the AI
Crash of Cars throws you right into the thick of things from the very start, putting you up against some intimidating competition. If that's proving a little too much for you, don't hesitate to spend some time practicing against the AI instead. It will provide a more even playing field for getting used to the pokey controls before you join the competition. Tap the tiny "multiplayer" option at the bottom right corner of the screen and set the game of "oflfine".
