View Full Version : Grinding for Money

03-18-2012, 04:39 PM
I've got at least 1 star in all levels, and I am working through the 2 stars on all levels. I've been getting treasure chests as I can find them or figure out how to get them.

Will the money earned from 3 stars and all treasure chests buy all the upgrades?

I'm thinking there's still going to be a lot of grinding to pay for some upgrades to max out all the cars, or perhaps to get upgrades just to get that 3rd star.

Does the 3rd star require the full upgrades to get in some cases?

I donīt think so. Got 3 Stars on all Desert & Frozen World tracks without fully upgraded cars but donīt have all 3 stars on the Future tracks where I got a fully upgraded car.

It is possible to get 3 stars without upgrading cars fully. You don't even need to find all chests if you're good enough driver. Every level pack is a little bit more difficult than the one before, but even in the last level pack you don't need to upgrade your vehicle fully.

And yes, some grinding is required if you wish to upgrade all cars fully. Just keep driving all the way to the finish line...

That is what I thought about getting the money. I am so set on pressing reset if I mess up, but I only saw my money increase after crossing the finish.
I will keep perfecting my lines to get 3 stars then.
Perhaps when I'm done there might be a new level pack or two. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

I have every treasure and 3 stars now but i still need 2 million for all upgrades http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/sad.gif
Going to buy the 1.5 mil pack maybe

2mil is a lot of grinding at my average 700 or so crossing the finish.
Thanks for responding. I've got six tracks that need 2 stars, and I've got 1 track with 3 stars. There are a lot of treasure chests left in my game. Oooh

Unfortunately this micro transaction BS is the way things are going. This has been made to be like that on purpose to encourage purchases. It's so annoying. Micro transactions can be a good thing but here it has been implemented in a way that other companies who I won't name are doing it. No matter how good you are at this game you will have to grind or purchase coins for more than the game costs. Any one who buys in game coins is a fool plain and simple.

Yeah you are actually right...but thats the way how they make money.
I think i have no game on my ipad who doesnt use that mechanic.
Thats the way nowadays

Guys, you don't NEED to purchase anything other than the game. I'm ranked 62 Global and #2 in the Touch Arcade league. Some of these courses are so short and intense that you need to focus solely on your driving and not worry about the vehicle's stats.

But yes, please purchase all of the coin packs that you need and help secure development of more great RedLynx titles. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/biggrin.gif
