What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disc Drivin’ 2 is a racing game for iOS and Android devices. Kids use touch controls to move a disc around a racetrack with curves and hills, trying to beat the clock in single player mode or an opponent in multiplayer mode. There’s a chat feature that kids can enable in settings, allowing them to interact with friends and potentially with strangers during competitions. Fortunately, the chat can remain disabled for younger players without reducing the quality of gameplay. There are ads that appear in between games. They can be eliminated with the Deluxe paid version. In-app purchases are available, but they’re not essential to gameplay. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your kid’s information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

In DISC DRIVIN’ 2, players swipe the screen to move a disc around a racetrack. The game offers more than 20 different tracks, each with its own twists, turns, hills, and obstacles. There are several race options on the home screen. Kids can challenge themselves to earn their best times in Speedrun, try to beat the clock in Daily Challenge, use Pass and Play to share their device and challenge friends, get matched with up to four players in Play Online mode, or play over wi-fi or Bluetooth in Local Multiplayer mode. Players get to take two swipes per turn and can use a mulligan, but only if they (and all other players in the match) watch a brief video ad. A stats option allows kids to see how they rank in all modes. Power-ups can be earned through gameplay or purchased. They give a player powers, disc advantages, and options to customize the appearance of the disc.

Is it any good?

The game offers numerous power-ups and exciting racetracks with plenty of surprising obstacles, making this a fun way to compete with family and friends – despite the ads. The touch controls of Disc Drivin' 2 are simple, which makes it easy for players to focus on strategy. There’s a bit of physics involved because the angle at which a player flicks the disc and the force used to flick will partly determine how the disc moves along the racetrack. It’s really fun to see the disc bounce off walls and take curves with ease. Timing also plays a role in strategy because some obstacles are movable. For example, one obstacle has spikes that retract and allow a disc to pass through at just the right moment.

One downside of the game is the fact that even if a player has the Deluxe ad-free version, video ads must be watched by all players if anyone takes a mulligan. Also, being able to purchase power-ups rather than having to earn them through gameplay can give some players an unfair advantage. These are things that most kids are probably used to dealing with when playing a multiplayer game, so they shouldn’t put a damper on the fun.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about keeping competitive play friendly. How do you manage to compete with other people while still keeping things fun and making sure there's no hard feelings?

  • Is it worth it to buying power-ups for Disc Drivin' 2, or would it be better to earn them through gameplay? Which ones are the most useful in gameplay?
