Even if you’ve been playing for a while, we think there’s going to be something here that’ll help you out. And if you’re just starting your Towing Race career, then you’re definitely going to want to read everything here very carefully. So let’s get on with it – here are the top five best hints, tips and cheats for Towing Race.

Don’t just hold down your finger

No matter how strong your chain is, if you just hold your finger down on the screen it’s going to break. Instead you want to press and lift, using the vibrations of your phone to figure out when the tension is getting too much. There are visual cues as well, which we’ll talk about in the next hint.

Watch for the exclamation mark

When there’s an exclamation mark above the chain, it’s about to snap and it’s time to stop pulling. You’ll also be able to tell when things are getting dodgy because the chain will turn red. Use these cues to be sure that you’re never in danger of snapping your chain and failing the level.

The chain can’t break in boss battles

In boss battles, you can ignore the advice above, because the chain can’t possibly break. Instead you’ll want to keep your finger pushed on the screen at all times. When the meters appear on the screen, tap when it’s in the green and then push your finger back down to continue your acceleration.

Upgrade evenly

You should focus your upgrades on your power and chain strength, but upgrade them evenly. Get too powerful without increasing your chain strength and it’ll snap too often. Increase your chain strength without upping the power and you’ll be finishing second in every race. When you’ve got some spare cash, up your earning potential as well.

Increase your earnings when you need to

If you’re running a little low on cash, then you can watch a video at the end of a level to gain more money. You’re going to have to do it more often the deeper you get into the game, since upgrades cost more. At that time it’s best to spend all of your cash on increasing the amount you earn per level.
