Finger Driver is a new game for the iOS and Android platforms by Ketchapp. Your goal here is to drive as far as you can on a randomly-generated race course with loads of twists and turns, collect coins, and earn new cars as you go. You can complete the entire collection, do missions, and complete against other players for the highest possible score. Read on for some tips and tricks on how to earn high scores and new cars in Finger Driver!
It takes a bit in order to get used to the ratio that you have to turn the wheel in order to get the car through turns. You have to turn the wheel 270 degrees in order to turn your car 90 degrees. So if your finger starts below the wheel, you’ll need to turn the wheel all the way to the right and stop when your finger is on the right side of the wheel in order to make a right turn. Vice versa for a left turn.
One of the quickest ways to earn coins in this game is, of course, to complete the missions. You only get one mission at a time and most of them are fairly easy to complete. They will either require you to go a specific distance or to earn a specific amount of coins, either cumulatively or in one race, so complete them to load up on coins and get even closer to being able to buy a new car.
Each new car costs 200 coins, and all of the cars generally perform the same as the others, they just have a different appearance. There are two more ways to get coins quickly. You can get free gifts as you go, or in the car menu, you can watch advertisement videos. The free gifts are worth 100 coins apiece and the videos are worth 20 coins every time that you watch them.
You can collect power-ups within the levels themselves, with the most numerous one being a shield. The shield will protect you from crashing whenever you hit a wall, but don’t let up on the concentration when you earn a shield. If you do, then you’ll have to get that focus back instantly when the shield ends, which is more difficult than keeping good focus the whole time in the first place.
Smooth steering is what will keep you afloat. If you steer jerkily, then you’ll end up unsteady and this will lead to a crash later on in the level. Practice steering by feel, rather than by having to look at the wheel and then back at the road constantly, and as you get the feel of it, you’ll be able to go for nearly unlimited distances.
