Overdrive City Gameplay

At the start of the game, you will name your city. This city is like your base where you can build a variety of buildings and produce materials, parts, and tools. After naming the city, you will get the first car that you can use in the race and compete with your rivals. The player needs blueprints to unlock the cars. After that, you will restore a building called racing center – this is where you access the chapter mode and clear the stages. These are the racing stages from where you can earn rewards like a car’s blueprints, research points, trophies, etc.

You can use the auto-mode in these stages and clear automatically. If you play manually, all you need to do is accelerate and brake at the right time. You can easily win the matches if you have high-quality stats car. In each stage, the Overdrive City game recommends a specific PR that a car must meet to complete the stage easily. PR is the score based on the car’s performance; Speed, Top Speed, Grip, and Braking.

Cars In Overdrive City

Cars in Overdrive City are ranked between D-Rank to S-Rank – where S-Rank cars are the best ones; thanks to the PR score. If you want more cars, you need to collect its blueprints. Tap the car center and then tap on the car that you want to unlock. on the next screen, tap the green color magnifying glass icon to check how to get its blueprints.

The two main sources of getting car blueprints in the game are the research center and chapter mode. Research Center building unlocks at level 7. There you can spend the research point to get car blueprints.


Like all other games, you need XP. Acquire it by producing the parts, materials, and tools. Or provide services in the garage, complete the achievements.


To construct the buildings, you need gold coins. Tap the build button in the bottom-left – from there you can construct production, assembly, facilities, special, and decorative items in the city.


To play the race events, you need keys. The players can acquire keys by servicing cars in the performance center.

Credits And Cash

Credits – Gold Coins – you need these credits to buy buildings, decorations, and items in the trading market. Sometimes, cars in the city give you these credits as a gift.

Cash – the green cash is another in-game currency. You can use it to buy items, rush the production. Both these currencies are premium and you can get by spending real money.

At level 18, you can restore Shipyard where you can ship items to gain credits, XP, and blueprints. Also, at level 10, you can restore Truck Depot where you can sell the cars to get research points, credits, and XP.

Overdrive City Review

  • P2W – Yep, it’s P2W – you can buy credits, cash, etc. to speed up the progress. It’s not heavy pay to win – as we said in the above point, it’s quite free-to-play friendly
  • Gameplay – It’s not a real-racing game as we mentioned at the starting of this article. Also, as the title of the game says; Car Tycoon. You get to build a car town where you can service cars, manufacture cars, parts, tools, etc. The players can sell their cars, ship products, and there are plenty of things to do. Overall, it’s fun.
  • Social – You can play with friends; visit their city and buy the parts, tools, etc.

We would rate it 4/5 stars.
