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
WARNING : You may be hooked to the game , but do not come and blame me for that !
. You may add me in WeChat – @prasys . I can help you out with tech questions or if you want to say hello or just have fun playing games together
The game can be downloaded from Apple App Store or Google Play Store
