Codex Gamicus

Cars: Radiator Springs Adventures is a computer game collection based on the Pixar film Cars.It is intended for the early childhood market.


Each game is five levels. Each Legend's Race is played as Lightning McQueen. If you win the game, you unlock the legend's race's secret. If you beat your best time in the Legend's race, you will unlock the Photo Background. If you beat your score or time in the activity, you unlock the paint job. All of the paint jobs are Lightning McQueen paint jobs. Most of the games are played as Lightning, but some aren't. On the top is a gas meter. Each time you do something wrong, the gas meter goes down by 1/4. When it empties, you lose. Every Legend's Race is straight through Main Street. In the chart below, the games are listed in order, but the races aren't.
