Retro Highway is a new endless motorcycle game for the iOS and Android platforms that brings back memories of classic Sega Genesis motorcycle games, but with fully modernized gameplay. Your goal is to go as far as you can and complete various missions, earn coins, and do stunts. Read on for some tips and tricks for Retro Highway!
Your goals have almost everything to do with distance and with specific quests and nothing to do with speed. That means that the nitrous is not quite as useful as you would normally think, but it is useful. The purpose of speed and especially nitro is that the faster you go, the easier it is to get close calls and near-misses. Use the nitrous to be able to score near-misses with more distance between you and the other cars.
The very first motorcycle that you buy will be half off of the original price. So even though it might be tempting, don’t spend your coins on the first motorcycle that you can afford. The longer that you can hold out, the better the motorcycle that you will be able to buy. Hold out for the Hellrider and you’ll be able to buy it for 5,000 coins instead of 10,000.
You have to complete challenges in order to unlock new levels. You’ll start off with the Emerald Hills, and as you complete missions you’ll unlock the Great Desert, the Moon Base, and all manner of other levels. Each specific level will have different amounts of traffic, different types and difficulties of obstacles, as well as differing amounts of coins.
Make sure to pick up the power-ups whenever you see them. These include coin doublers, coin magnets, as well as other goodies. Each power-up can also be upgraded inside of the top upgrade menu (the one above the motorcycle shop). Coin 2x power-ups, magnets and shields can all be upgraded to add more time to how long they last when you pick them up.
If you want to change the controls, go to the options menu. The default control scheme puts the left and right buttons at either side of the screen and the nitrous button above the right arrow. However, you can change it to one of three other options. The first one is left and right right next to each other. The second is gyroscopic, where you can rotate the screen to change direction. The third new one allows you to swipe left and right to turn left and right. The nitrous button always remains generally in the same place.
