Description

Radiator Springs Adventures is an entry in the Disney/Pixar Cars group, based on the animated Cars movie, although this one is not much more than a series of short games leading up to a drag race against Lightning McQueen's arch-enemy, Chick Hicks. There are 10 activities all together, and each one has several levels; successfully completing all the levels unlocks a new car "opponent" for the Legends Race. Winning nine races lets you finish up with the main race against Chick Hicks. Activities include:
  • Hip-Hop it Up: follow along with Ramone's dance moves if you can.

  • Luigi's Fantastico Fun: Guido has to catch falling tires, and only tires before Luigi's customers arrive.

  • Radiator Springs Curios: a memory game, replacing items in the Curio shop.

  • Fill 'Er Up: follow the patterns on the gas pumps to provide full service for each of Flo's customers.

  • Drive-in and Out: a tile sliding game, shifting cars around in the Drive-In parking lot so you can reach the exit.

  • Speed Trap: arcade game, avoiding rocks and oil slicks as you chase speeders down the highway.

  • Tow the Line: be Mater, picking up cars in the tow yard, without bumping into things...

  • Tractor Round-Up: tractor-tipping! Don't bump into the tractors or the fence.

  • Doc's Tune-Up: guide nuts and other obstructing items out of tailpipes without touching the sides.

  • Sarge's Boot Camp: run Sarge's obstacle course.
All the activities use mouse controls, clicking on on-screen directional arrows or holding a mouse-button down. The suggested age group for this game is 4+ - young players may need help understanding the instructions for some of the games, though the games themselves are fairly simple.
