How to Play Car vs Cops
There are two control options for Car vs Cops, but that’s about the extent of customization. You can steer with one finger or you can steer with two fingers. The one finger option leads the car where your finger goes. the two finger option turns the car toward the side of the screen that the finger is tapping or holding.
As you are hit, your health will drop. Three hearts at the top of the screen indicate your health and you can get one extra heart by watching ad ad after you die.
You cannot stop and you can only go faster when you perform a combo that gives you a speed boost. You need to drive to get the cop cars to hit each other and avoid hitting you. Stay close to cop cars to earn combos.
Before each game you will see a challenge that you need to complete to score extra points. Collect the purple coins to buy new cars.
Is Car vs Cops Safe For Kids?
