Once iTunes has downloaded Fast and Furious it will appear on your device and can be played by tapping on the Fast&Furious icon on your device's desktop.
You can move the game to your device's quick launch dock if required.
If you are listening to your own music on your iPod then the game will recognise this and continue to play your music instead of the in-game music.
It's an all-out race against various opponents. Use all your skill to cross the finish line first. Remembering track layouts can assist in more challenging races. Using your NOS at the right time can significantly improve your performance in tougher challenges.
Crossing the finish line first is only half of the objective. Drift races all have a skill score to achieve. This is calculated while you drift - the longer you drift your car and the more drifts you chain together, the greater your score. Note that drifting is when the car is in a controlled slide.
There is no steering required in this mode. All you need to do is concentrate on changing gears at the optimum revs for a smooth shift and better acceleration. Watch the rev needle as it changes colour from red to green. Changing gears when the needle is red is the worst possible time. Changing when the needle is green is best and anything in-between is a variance on this. To change gear, simply tap the gear icon in the bottom right of the screen.
Race from checkpoint to checkpoint against opponents to get to the finish line first. Use the GPS map in the corner of the screen to find the fastest route around the race route and look out for shortcuts.
There is no steering required in this mode. Like the drag race concentrate on changing gears at the optimum revs for a smooth shift and better acceleration. When the tunnel reaches a junction 'traffic light' icons will appear on the screen. Tap these in sequence when they start to flash green to make the car navigate the junction smoothly. Tap the icons in the wrong order or at the wrong time and the car will crash and have to begin accelerating again.
The objective is to stop the target vehicle(s) during the race. Players will have to complete the track and take out the enemy cars. Smash into the target vehicle(s) until they are unable to drive any longer. Watch the indicators above the vehicle to see their health. When the bar is empty the target vehicle(s) will crash. Letting the target vehicle(s) get too far away will result in the level being failed. A message will appear on screen with a countdown when the target vehicle(s) are too far away.
The objective is to evade being caught during the race. Players will have to complete the track without being taken out by the enemy car. The enemy car will try to box a player in, or smash into your car until you are unable to drive any longer. Watch the indicators at the top of your screen to see your car's health. When all three icons turn red you will be unable to drive and you will be caught. Not putting enough distance between you and the enemy car will also result in being caught. A message will appear on screen with a countdown when the enemy car is too near. Increase the distance before the countdown ends to successfully evade the situation.
Each scene can also contain various targets and objectives that must be met, these could be one of the following:
