Beach Buggy Racing 2 is a new racing game for the iOS and Android platforms. It’s much like Mario Kart in that you can pick from a number of racers and buggies, each with different stats, and you can pick up items and power-ups to use as boosts and weapons against other racers. Your goal, of course, is to win the race. You can unlock all sorts of goodies and upgrade your power-ups for even bigger advantages. Read on for some tips and tricks for Beach Buggy Racing 2!
At the beginning of the game, you’ll get the choice of whether to steer using tilt steering or using touch steering. From our experience, touch steering tends to be far more accurate. If you’re used to tilt steering from other games or from playing Wii racing games in the past, pick that. You can change the control scheme at any time.
Stay on the track to go as fast as you can, and turn as little as possible to keep your speed high. That means set up your racing lines as you approach the turns, ideally going from outside the turn, to inside as you enter the middle of the turn, back to the outside as you exit the corner. Your acceleration will be quicker this way, making it much easier to stay ahead of the competition.
There are a huge amount of power-ups that you can pick up in order to try to get the jump on the competition. Various forms of rockets and missiles either home in on the enemy or fire in a straight line, plus, you can get speed boosts and shields. Hit the question marks to pick up standard items, hit the exclamation marks to pick up better items, or hit the double question blocks to fill up both of the item slots.
You can’t upgrade individual buggies or characters, but you can unlock new ones from tikis, mail, by spending gems, and more. What you can upgrade are the power-ups, though, to increase either the duration of time that they last, the speed that they give you, or the slowdown that you deal to other players. You can also swap cards in and out of your deck once you have too many power-ups to all fit in one deck. The rarer they are, the more effective they tend to be but the more expensive they will be to upgrade.
While it’s inevitable that you’ll go into a slide once in awhile when you’re taking tight turns, keep the sliding under control. Start your turn early when you come up with a tight turn so that you can powerslide cleanly through the corner without hitting any obstacles on the way through.
