Driver Over 30 Awesome Vehicles

Hot Wheels Unlimited has over 30 vehicles that you can drive but you need to unlock them all first. The in-game garage features Hot Wheels vehicles of different themes, such as dune buggies, Sharkruisers, and more.

You can unlock vehicles by earning Red Wheels. Each vehicle has a specific number of Red Wheels needed for it to be unlocked and you can earn Red Wheels by playing through the game’s daily challenges.

Moreover, you instantly unlock three monster trucks – the Tiger Shark, Bone Shaker, and Race Ace – after subscribing to the game’s “Ultimate Pass”. 

Complete Challenges to Unlock More

Hot Wheels Unlimited features Hot Wheels City where you can accomplish daily challenges in order to earn more Red Wheels to unlock more vehicles. There are two challenges in the game: a puzzle and a race. You can only complete a maximum of three challenges daily; however, you can do a total of six challenges if you have the Ultimate Pass.

The puzzle challenge is easy and appropriate for all ages, especially for children. In this challenge, you are tasked to fill in the missing pieces of the race track with only a limited number of tracks. If you’re having a hard time figuring out where one piece goes, you can call a “jet”, which will tell you where one piece is supposed to go. You can call the jet again after a cool-down period. 

After completing the puzzle, the game rewards you by letting you play the race track you just put together.

Aside from the solving a puzzle, you can also compete in a race against an AI-controlled vehicle. The race lasts for two laps so make sure that you’re always in first place. You can do this by boosting your vehicle, which will temporarily give your vehicle a massive speed boost to allow you to quickly outmatch your opponent. 

Make sure to win the race to earn a Red Wheel and get one step closer to claiming a new vehicle. 

Build Your Own Tracks

What is perhaps the best feature of Hot Wheels Unlimited is the ability to not only create but also play your own race tracks. It is essentially just like assembling real-life Hot Wheels sets and playing with it afterwards but done on your device. 

The game gives you plenty of pieces to build with. These pieces are similar to – if not, exactly the same as – the iconic orange ones found in real Hot Wheels playsets. Aside from building the actual race track, you can also add props such as city buildings to decorate your creation. You can also paint the surface with various textures (i.e. grass, rocks) to give further detail to your race track.
