Forza Street is available to download for the vast majority of Android and iOS devices, not just Samsung phones.

How to play Forza Street?
First pick your Samsung Android and download the game all free. According to your mobile devices:
Playing Forza Street is very simple however mastering it will take some practice. The game can be played with one button. The game, however, offers different modes. You can play with the Keyboard, the mouse or a touch screen (compatible device required) as well. You simply need to press one key on each to accelerate, lifting it off with apply brakes and use boost with another button. You can play with any control scheme that suits you for more control over the game.
To begin with, Forza is a slick game. It is visually appealing with a lot of night races and neon lighting. Microsoft has got that part absolutely bang on. Forza Street is mainly about one-on-one races as you have to take part as a driver in a series of races to progress in the game.
Forza Street has a lot of elements such as news anchors (not the shrill ones), secret patrons ready to help and even some cryptocurrency thrown in. But some problems crop up in the gameplay. The controls are very basic and there is very little “skill” involved in the game per se. The driving, braking, pushing on the gas pedal all feels very amateurish and unlike Forza.
The races last less than a minute and you’ll get the hang of controlling the car fairly quickly. Someone who hasn’t played car games might find it appealing as it is easy on the eye and easy to play as well. However, hardcore racing game enthusiasts are bound to get bored rather quickly with Forza Street. You need the whole excitement of changing gears, maneuvering cars in tricky situations. But, sadly, all that is missing in Forza Street.
The graphics are great, though. Microsoft has paid a lot of attention to details and Forza Street has a cool set of wheels as well. There is an option to choose from classic, modern and retro cars like the 2015 Ford Mustang GT, 1991 BMW M3 and the 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z432.
Although you do not need to worry about launch control or making sure not to spin out too much and maintaining traction at the start, you must watch out for the best launch zone for your RPM.
You have to launch while keeping the RPM in the yellow zone below red but if you look closely, right below the red zone, there is a small perfect launch zone. This zone is very small and hard to notice but you must try to keep the RPM in this optimum zone when the race begins.
If you launch in this zone, you will get the Perfect Launch bonus and even if your car lacks in the Performance Index, you will start very strong next to your opponent. Sometimes you will even gain the lead right off the line. It is vital that you practice and never compromise on the start line launch.
The next thing you must master is when to brake and when to accelerate back. Forza Street is a one button game so it is very easy to play the game. Hence mastering braking and accelerating points should not be a big problem for you. When you approach the corner, you will notice yellow and the red line. At no point in the corner, should you accelerate at the red line. Always keep your foot off the accelerator in the red zone.
While approaching the corner, you must lift off the accelerator at the yellow zone and then accelerate at the end of the corner when the red line ends and the yellow begins. At this line, you will notice that a certain part if much brighter and highlighted. These are perfect braking and accelerating points. Lifting off and then accelerating again in these points will help you take the corner in maximum speed possible.
Try to practice so that you brake at the perfect time and then accelerate again at the perfect spot so that you enter and exit the corner at the fastest possible speed, allowing you to gain a visible lead over the opposition. Also if you messed up the launch, taking perfect corners will give you a chance to overtake your opponent again.
You have boost at your disposal for a quick acceleration bonus in the game however you must charge it first. Boost recharges at its default speed while you are driving however you can fill it up quickly if you take some perfect corners. Taking perfect corners will quickly refill your boost bar so you can use it immediately after exiting the corner for a massive boost and gaining lead on your opponent.
The boost bar has two rings. You must charge each ring before using it. When one ring is filled, you can use the boost however it is not too much powerful. For the ultimate boost, you can refill both rings and the press the boost key or tap the icon for a massive boost that is certainly going to add some distance between your car and your opponent’s car.
As you play the game, you will unlock more and more cars however you can only have three cars in your lineup for each event. Tuning will need car parts and CR, the in-game money. Tap the tuning icon in the main menu and you will then head into your garage where you can pick the car, choose the parts and pay in CR to tune it up.
Tuning is important because you cannot take part in higher level races with stock vehicles. Tuning will ensure that your cars are competitive in all scenarios. You win car parts by challenge cards and from events and races as well. Once you have decent part upgrades, head to the garage and tune up your cars to increase their Performance Index and make them more competitive. You will not win races later if you choose to keep your rides stock.
Know the performance in your game
The Performance Index is a number which is displayed on your car as well as the opponent you are going to race which shows the performance level of the car chosen. Higher the number, better the performance of the car. Before the vent starts, you can pick an opponent from a list of three based on different Performance Index levels. Pick the one with the highest to earn higher rewards but the race will be difficult.
To ensure that you can tackle higher PI opponents, make sure that you tune your car so that it is more competitive. Tuning will increase your car’s PI and allow you to earn more rewards by challenging higher level enemies. You can have three different cars in your lineup so you can have cars of different Performance Indexes so that you can easily defeat higher PI level enemies at later events of a race event.
Before you enter a race event, you will be required to pick three cars out of your garage which you will be using for the entire event. An event will have multiple races with different opponents so make sure that you bring high-performance level cars as well to an event because the final race in most events has tougher enemies.
You cannot change your car lineup once you have entered the event and the only way to change your lineup again is either you complete the whole racing event or quit the event and go back to the menu. Bringing cars of different PI will certainly help you in all racing events.
Finally note that Forza Street offers different rewards for players loyal to the game. First off a CR reward is given to players after every couple of hours. CR is used in different in-game purchases and activities so make sure that you check back often and collect the free CR. Apart from this, you will earn rewards for simply signing in the game every day. Login after every 24 hours and you will earn a reward better than the previous time you signed in. These rewards refresh every 30 days.(with inputs from gameshedge experts)
