You need the appropriate piece of equipment, such as a flotation device, big-wheel tires or wings, to access certain areas. You can get this equipment in the Workshop, which you can find by following the green tool icon, then pressing the action button once you arrive at the Workshop hangar.
First, ensure that the car is specifically meant for the Apptivity Hot Wheels game, and not a regular Hot Wheels car. You will be able to tell whether it is for Apptivity by looking for the contact points on the bottom of the car.
Ensure that the contact points are extended rather than retracted. There is a button on the bottom of the car that allows you to switch between traditional Hot Wheels car play (retracted) and Apptivity mode (extended).
Check the bottom of the car for debris, and wipe it with a clean, dry cloth.
Wipe your screen with a soft, dry cloth to ensure the best conductivity with the car.
Make sure you are holding the car in the right location in order for it to be recognized.
Hold it in the center and on the sides of the car while the tires are on the screen.
Make sure that you are not placing the car on the black or white frame around the iPad screen. You must keep the car only within the screen area.
Do not wear gloves or mittens since the car needs to come in contact with your fingertips.
You can customize your vehicle in the workshop.Follow the green tool icon to find the workshop hangar.
There are multiple types of customizations that you can make:
One-shots are one-time game modifiers that you can use to improve your performance, such as nitro bursts that give you faster speed. However, after you use a one-shot, you no longer have it anymore.You would need to unlock another one to use it again.
Add-ons are customizations that can be used forever on your vehicle, such as tires or weapons.Once you have unlocked them, they are permanently available for your use.
In order to modify your vehicle in the workshop, tap any icon in the circle with your finger and it will take you to the page where you can unlock it, if you have enough credits.
Those that are green are unlocked and your car is currently equipped with that item.
Those items that are orange are already unlocked, but your car is not currently equipped with that item.
Those that are grey are unearned.
You can purchase more credits to unlock specific one-shot or add-on modifications. Once add-ons are purchased, they will always be available to equip your car.
The various colored icons are meant to direct you to the different hangars in the Hot Wheels Test Facility.The red diamond icon takes you to the Search and Destroy Hangar, the yellow triangle icon takes you to the Long Jump Hangar, and the blue circle icon takes you to the Race Hangar. The green tool icon will allow you to upgrade your vehicle in the workshop.
If this occurs during the Hello Barbie™ setup process, make sure the doll is properly charged. Hello Barbie™ should remain in the charging station and connected to power during the setup.
When putting Hello Barbie™ into connection mode, make sure you see white flashing lights (they may also look light blue) If the lights flash (royal) blue, Hello Barbie™ has been reset and will automatically say "My batteries need to recharge. Please connect me to the charging station." Connect Hello Barbie™ to the charger and continue putting her into connection mode.
If this occurs during conversations or red lights appear, connect Hello Barbie™ to her charger, make sure that the charging cable is firmly connected to the doll, and that the orange charging indicator is illuminated.
In career mode or exhibition mode, look for black track-pad with chevron arrows at bottom or side of the screen.Move your figure back and forth along the track-pad rapidly to grapple, pin, or toss a Superstar out of the ring.
In the specialty matches, move your figure back-and forth along the track-pad rapidly to catch up to the opposing Superstar, or to increase your power against him.
You automatically earn one virtual object with each figure you use.In power play mode, you can look at the drop down menu where as you win against each opponent, you also earn their object.
Put the object down on the “+” icon to unlock it. Once you have unlocked it, you can access it during future Power Play modes.
Items in blue are available to use.Items in grey are objects that you have not earned/unlocked with the specific Apptivity WWE Rumblers figure you are using.Objects in orange are those that you have selected to use.
Within career mode matches, when either your energy or your opponent’s energy level is low, the game will engage “power play” mode. Within that mode, you can use a special digital object that comes with your Superstar.
This is also where you can use the physical objects that come with the Apptivity WWE Rumblers Starter Set.
