|Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures|
June 6, 2006
Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures is the second video game in the Cars series. It was released exclusively for the PC on June 6, 2006, the same day as Cars: The Video Game, and three days prior to the release of Cars, despite both games taking place after the film. Unlike other Cars video games, Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures has no main storyline, and instead has a variety of minigames for players to experience, which can be completed in any order, with the exception of Chopper-Hopper, which is unlocked after all ten other games are played at least once.
There are ten different activities featured in Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures, all of which take the player to a different type of minigame. These minigames each have a different goal, whether it be dancing with Ramone, or filling up customers with gas.
Each activity has a separate set of records for the player to set. If the player beats their fastest time in an activity, they will unlock a new paint job for Lightning McQueen.
Legends Races are races against certain characters, each one harder than the last. In order to unlock each one, all activies must be completed, and the Legends Races are unlocked in a linear progression. Like in the activities, records are kept of players' fastest times.
