The roar of the engine, the thrill of the chase, you can smell first place but it is just out of reach! If only you weren’t driving such a junker… You’ll need to manage your finances as you hit the racing circuit, gain sponsorships, sell old racers, and pick out parts and upgrades to build your very own "dream racer". So start your engines and burn some rubber. Dream Racer is go-kart racing at its finest!

The game is 100% free-to-play (with no in-app purchases).

The game is developed by the Games for Entertainment and Learning (GEL) Lab at Michigan State University and supported by the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.

Pretty intuitive

For a game targeted at children, it does well explaining how savings and finances work. As for the game itself, while rather basic, it's able to provide at least an hour of entertainment at the very least. The controls are good, and the music is pleasant. However, the powerups, while satisfying, are still kind of bland.

Once again, it's a nice app for children to enjoy. I think multiplayer would be a fun concept to try and incorporate.

Fast and furiously fun

What a fun racing game with the added benefit of utilizing financial principles- pay your bills on time and get rewarded. Build your skills and earn more money while lowering costs.

I'm impressed with the students in this program at Michigan State University.
