Toca Cars - completely free auto-mayhem for your kids

Published by at

I've been a fan of the Toca games for small kids for ages, they keep my nephews and nieces very happy - and Toca Cars appears to be a complete freebie from the developers. With a girl or boy racer, players can drive around a toy world, crashing and doing whatever they like, with no damage done in the real world. Add in a game world editor, some jumps and ramps, and this is a must-install for anyone prone to lending their phone to a small family member.

From the Store description:

In Toca Cars you do what feels right. No rules apply to these roads. Cruise through big puddles of ice cream, fly off jumps into a lake or build a huge pile of houses, stop lights, and mailboxes and drive right through. Ready, set, GO!  

The world of Toca Cars is made from 100% recycled cardboard, including the little dog that may chase you! Want to speed through the lake, bump a tree, and knock over the stop sign one more time? No problem! Simply push the restore button and do it again!  

When you choose Editor mode you can arrange your own jumps, races, trees, animals and houses. Build small jumps or big jumps, place a quarter pipe in the lake and maybe even get surprised by a robot...

By touching where the player wants the car to go, it accelerates and turns as needed. Players can knock stuff over and generally have fun - a tap on the 'reset' control restores order!

Flying! Actually I've just powered up a ramp and jumped off the end - for a few seconds the car grows wings and you can fly - how cool is that?
