Description:The player must steer the car avoiding the potholes, and collecting the repairs (tools icon). Each tool collected will trigger a multiple choice question. Answering the question correctly increases the score multiplier. Answering wrongly decreases the multiplier back to one. Crashing also results in a decrease in the multiplier. The aim is to reach the end with the highest score possible! The game is available in English, Italian and Greek.
