This review of Cars: Lightning League contains the following information:
Our Reviewer played all the 'free' levels of this game until the point where it was necessary to purchase gems to continue.
Cars: Lightning League is a colourful racing car game featuring Lighting McQueen, Cruz Ramirez, Jackson Storm and others and is based on the popular Cars Movie. The player has to swipe left or right to change lanes to avoid crashing into objects. Swiping up will lift the car up over ramps and it can also change lanes in the air. The voiceover explains what is needed which makes it quite straightforward. The car travels at great speed (accompanied by upbeat music), which can be further increased by upgrading the cars using gems, which are earned and/or purchased. Coins can be collected along the course by clearing objects. After each level is complete coins and rewards are unlocked.
Cars: Lightning League is a fast-paced fun game, which will appeal to children, particularly due to it being a spin off from the movie. Parents need to be aware however, (and this is stated on the download screen), that the app contains social media links to connect with others, logins, which are required to earn rewards, advertising messages including the option to watch adverts for rewards, and in-app purchases which are listed in the in-app purchasing section. While the download is free, there are additional costs such as upgrading and refuelling the car and purchasing packs and gems. There is no parental lock either but settings can be adjusted within the device. It is therefore not recommended for children under 13 and parental guidance and/or co-playing is recommended for 13 to 15 year-olds.
