Habbo Speedway is an official game in Habbo. In September 2012, Habbo Speedway was released in a beta format for the Finnish hotel only. On November 9th, 2012, Habbo Speedway was released around the world.
GameplayA player may choose to join in a "Practise" map, which allows for infinite 'Power-Ups', while racing against bots. Or, players may choose the real game, where you challenge players around the world from different hotels. In the real game, you may earn badges (See below) and select up to 3 'Power-Ups' to use.
The controls are quite simple, compared to the standard 'Racing Game'. The player simply holds down space to accelerate and presses the 'H' key to sound their horn. Though the horn is simply sound, timing your acceleration is very important. If you go through a corner too fast, you will spin out thus loosing speed and time. Remember: "Slow and steady wins the race".
Though not required to win, 'Power-ups' may give an advantage to win. These may be given for free in the lottery (See below) or purchased with coins in packages of multiple power-ups.
