Racing Comrade Tips and Tricks:

Like most games of this kind, if you just keep plugging away, you'll eventually earn enough cash to buy enough upgrades that you can't help but overwhelm your opponents. But if you want to speed things up, here are my tips.

  • The "game-breaker" ability (and it's intended to be so) is the shiv. Shivving permanently removes an opponent. Therefore, all the shivving-related abilities are most important to buy, and shivving is the most important thing you can do. Shiv whenever you have the opportunity. Send the officials away if necessary.

  • Remember that you have to be in range to use biting, kicking and shivving. Look at the top of the screen at the view of the racecourse to see how close you are to someone, since the front view can be hard to tell.

  • Mind the weather, particularly fog, when choosing your actions.

  • You may be familiar with some other upgrading games where you can save money by buying several levels of a skill at once, eg level five costs 600 gold and level 4 costs 400 gold, but you can buy level 5 without having first bought level 4 and save 400. Racing Comrade isn't like that. Previous money invested in a skill is deducted from the price of upgrading. So don't be afraid to put money into upgrades right away.

  • All contraband is outlined in red. Make sure you don't pick it up if officials are likely to see. And remember to sell it in between races. You unlock new kinds of contraband with the "underground connections" upgrade.

  • In the final race, you have so many competitors that the "donation" action, which causes all other competitors to pause, becomes almost as useful as the shiv. Its major weakness is that the officials have to be both there and able to see you.

  • The last ability to be used in conjunction with the shiv is the taunt. Particularly use taunt at the beginnings of a race when you have a lot of competitors to keep them back with you while your shiv ability reloads.

I like how the picture of the review presents a typical race: You in first place, and six other contestants who stopped running.

Forever.

This is the best game xD Totally agree with joye's tips:

I beat it with a combo of taunting, judge distracting, and shivving. I bought all of the other attacks, but they were mostly useless.

Well, as long as you flip the bird or call in a moment of reflection, sprinting and collecting food while kicking anyone who gets in your way, it's just as possible to win without killing anybody :3

Unfortunately, shivving costs quite a bit of energy, and if you knock them out for 15 seconds, they're usually out of the race anyway.

A description of one of my races:
*race starts*
*I kill someone*
*I kill another person*
*I kill a bunch more people and win*
I like Shiv. A lot.
