I am quite sure that most of you have heard of WeChat. Its a popular messaging program , something like WhatsApp. The beauty of WeChat is that they have presence in the local market , in this case Malaysia which pretty much takes things to the next level.
Let’s take a closer look at WeChat Speed All Star Race , which I think can take social gaming to the next level
Recently , they have introduced WeChat All Star Race About You. It’s a racing game something like Real Racing 3 and Formula 1. Instead of uh joining famous teams like McLarren or Ferrari , you get to pick a celebrity team that you wish to join.
Here are some of the list of celebrities which you can pick :-
1. Adam C
3. Yumi Wong
4. Diana Danielle
5. Elfira Loy
Once you have picked your team , you can continue to race daily. Just think of it as World of Warcraft or other MMOs – time to do quests , you get points , diamond and all which can be used to upgrade your car , to give better performance and such.
Gampleay wise , its pretty simple , you do not compete with other races , its much like you race till you run out of fuel , along the way you collect coins , do some drift , awesome stuff to increase your points.
I mean it’s easy to pick the game up , and the tutorial in the start gives you the basics on how to navigate and how to use , so on and so forth
The graphics is pretty neat on the iPhone. There is such detail that has been put into the game. Plus the ability to adjust camera view is a bonus for some of us who wants to have a different angle
Of course there are daily rewards as well for just logging in , inviting friends and completing certain objective. Currently you can get free diamonds which is great as you do not have to spend a lot of $$ on buying it and obtaining them is very easy and straight forward. I’ve listed out on how you can obtain them for free
I mean for a start , it’s great that WeChat studied their market properly. As we know that Malaysians tend to love freebies and it’s a good way to get people hooked to the game. The problem with most free-to-play/freemium games is that they do not offer you a lot of freebies or to obtain them is a hassle. Kudos to the people at WeChat for understanding the market segment

Overall it’s a different sort of game , that rewards you for playing. Even if you log it and even if you suck at the game , at least they you will be rewarded something. Also if you think you are good , who knows you might stand a chance to win and see these celebrities
