HOW TO PLAY
RaceCraft is a game where you have to build your very own race tracks and then you can race on them. You will collect more Track Pieces and Car Upgrades as you progress through the game by racing on various tracks.
HOW TO BUILD YOUR TRACKS?
To start building, press the Hammer button when you arrive in front of the jumbotron. That screen is your Track Selection menu.
The Hammer button brings you to a large grid with a Green Track piece on it. That piece is your Start Line. Build your Track by connecting other Track Pieces together and to your Start Line. When your Pieces light up, it means they are connected to your Start Line.
As you place pieces down, you'll notice a gate appearing at the end of your path. That's the finish line. It automatically appears at the end of your Track. If your Track loops on itself, the Finish Line disappears as the Start Line is used for the same purpose.
As you progress through the game's tutorial, you will unlock new features to customize your Track.
To place Special Track pieces, simply drag them onto the grid as you would the regular ones. These may have special functions like traps or boosts. Time to experiment!
To place Stage Props, you can also drag them onto the grid. However, these cannot be placed directly on the Tracks.
To place Terrain, first you'll need to select which one you wish to use by tapping on the circle in the tray or by aligning it to the arrow. Then you'll need to paint it directly onto the grid by swiping your finger where you want Terrain to appear.
Finally, to test your Track quickly, you can tap on a Car to send it racing along your Track. However, nothing beats the rush of driving your Car yourself in the Race Mode.
HOW TO RACE?
To race on your Tracks, you'll need to build them first. Then, to go race, press on the green Race Flag button from the Track Selection screen or directly from the Building Mode screen.
If your Track does not have a name already, you will need to choose one from the reel slots.
From there, you'll need to choose whether you want to race alone against artificial intelligence or against another person, on the same screen.
Then, you will be able to choose your car(s), their paint jobs and then their modifications.
Finally, from the Car Mods screen, pressing the Race Flag button will initiate the Race.
Racing is really easy in RaceCraft, simply mash that green Accelerator button like there's no tomorrow. Beware of traps though! Sometimes you'll want to slow down to avoid getting crushed or sliced at an unfortunate time!
Additionally, driving on the Light Tracks generates energy for your Blast Turbo, when full, press the small flame button to Blast Off at blazing speed!
HOW TO GET MORE TRACK PIECES?
Track Pieces are contained inside Power Cores. You'll need to earn them first in order to open them
Each Car comes with a certain number of Power Cores. To earn them, you'll need to accumulate Sparks (lightning bolt icons) by racing on your Tracks with the Cars.
You get 1 Spark for winning the race and 1 more for establishing a new time record.
Additionally, you'll get up to 3 more Sparks depending on Power that your Track's Battery has accumulated. The Battery fills up based on the length of your Track and the amount of details you add.
Once you will have accumulated enough Sparks for the same Car, you will get to open one of its Power Cores.
DOES THE TRACK'S POWER BATTERY RECHARGE?
Yes. Currently, each battery recharges completely after 10 minutes. However, this number could change upon further live testing of the game. We encourage you to create lots of Tracks!
HOW TO GET CAR MODS AND PAINT JOBS?
Similarly to Track Pieces, you'll need to open Power Cores to earn the Car Mods and Paint Jobs.
DO POWER CORES CONTAIN RANDOM REWARDS?
No. For each Car, there's a predefined order in which you earn all of the prizes in the Power Core. You cannot obtain a duplicate item.
HOW TO GET MORE POWER CORES?
If you ran out of Power Cores to open, start racing with other Cars. Each Car has a pool of Power Cores to earn. You can check which Cars still have Power Cores in the Collection scene.
If you ran out of Power Cores on all of the Cars in the game, then bravo! You have unlocked all of the game's content! However, you'll need to wait for future updates in order to get more.
HOW TO PLAY AGAINST ANOTHER PLAYER?
You will need to own at least 2 Cars in order to play against someone else. If you don't, you'll have to purchase one.
CAN YOU PLAY ONLINE?
No. There is currently no online functionality to share your Tracks or Race on them. Perhaps in a future update if enough players are engaged in the game.
