What is Fastlane

Fastlane is an action game from Space Ape Games. While it might look like a driving game, don’t let that fool you, this is a shoot ‘em up (shmup) game that has more in common with Sky Force than it does Need for Speed. Your goal in Fastlane is to destroy your enemies, pick up power ups, and dodge obstacles and enemy fire, all while listening to a great soundtrack. The game’s fast paced combat is combined with a power-up system that lets players upgrade their vehicles and purchase special permanent boosts between games.

Recommendation

Fastlane is a great game that’s marred by overly pushy in app purchases. While I understand that monetization is necessary, I also know there’s a balance between giving people a reason to make in-app purchases and making the game frustrating for anyone who doesn’t. At this time, Fastlane is definitely not friendly towards free users. If you’re looking for a go to game, look elsewhere, but if you’re looking for something to play for a few minutes here and there, Fastlane is worth a download.
