It’s time to hit the highway! Retro Highway is a stunt driving game based on arcade classics. Drive dangerously to score coins and see how far you can get down this busy highway! Our Retro Highway cheats and tips will show you how to become the ultimate daredevil and pull off tons of stunts!
Retro Highway is simple and addicting, and the retro aesthetic is awesome as well. With lots of replayability, there’s lots to cover here so let’s get started with our Retro Highway cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
List of stunts!
The key to getting a bunch of coins is to pull off as many stunts as you can. Some stunts aren’t as straightforward as others, so we’ve compiled a list of all the stunts we’ve discovered so far!
Close Call / Near Miss: Narrowly dodge traffic at the very last second. The most common stunt that you’ll get even when you’re not trying!
Ramp Jump: Simply launch into the air by going off a ramp. Easy peasy!
Fly Over: After going off a jump, pass over another vehicle while you’re still in the air.
Big Air: Go off a ramp while using your turbo. If you’ve got enough speed, you’ll go extra far and get this stunt. This also works if you land on consecutive ramps.
Roof Bounce: Land on the roof of car after a ramp jump to bounce off of it. This one’s pretty tricky to pull off, but it’s worth a good amount of coins!
Pay attention to some of the challenges!
In order to unlock new levels to race in, you’ll need to pass a certain amount of challenges before you’re qualified for the next zone. Most of the challenges will be accomplished naturally as you race through the game, but some of them will require you to go out of your way to complete them.
For example, some challenges will ask you to NOT collect any coins before a specific distance. There are also challenges that ask you crash on purpose within a certain distance. These are the kinds of challenges you need to pay attention to!
Buy the Amateur!
When you first start the game, a couple of bikes will be on sale. The third bike, the Amateur, is the best bang for your buck. At 2,000 coins, this has all-around stats in all three categories, making it the perfect beginner’s bike. While the Freak and Vagabond are good too, once you buy any of the bikes the sale will end and they’ll go back to their normal prices. Because of this you should just save up for the Amateur!
Conserve your turbo!
Your turbo gauge is consistent and will carry over between runs. This means that if you spend it all in one run, you’ll have no turbo for your next one! Be careful with it and manage it properly. You should really only need turbo for getting big air off of ramp jumps.
Turbo recharges slowly on its own, but you can speed it up by performing stunts and collecting coins. As a general rule of thumb, try not to use too much turbo if you’re on your last stock.
Watch out for hazards!
Traffic isn’t the only thing you need to watch out for in Retro Highway! If you’re going to go off a ramp, make sure you’re cleared! Billboards, bridges, and even roof tunnels can slap you right back down to the ground.
Once you get to the Great Desert, you’ll also start seeing new hazards, like oil spills. These make you lose control of your bike for a couple of seconds, so watch out!
