Trench Racer: Help

Tilt Control

Select tilt control by selecting the picture of the tilting phone at the top of the Options → Controls screen, next to the Steering Control heading.

Tilt control allows you to steer your trench racer craft by tilting your phone or tablet as you would a steering wheel on a car. All weapon firing controls are activated by on screen buttons

Steering Sensitivity

Move the steering sensitivity slider to the right to increase the rate at which your craft will move left and right relative to how far you tilt your phone or tablet.

The maximum steering rate is limited by your crafts maneuverability, this will increase as you acquire better craft throughout the game.

Weapon Aiming

Trench Racer allows you some control over the aiming of your weapons. With tilt control you have an on screen aiming pad, when touched your weapon is activated and will continue to fire until you remove your finger from the pad.

Where you place your finger on the aiming pad determines in which direction the weapon fires. Hitting the top of the pad will fire your weapon upwards allowing you to attack craft flying above you.

Invert Weapon Aiming Y-Axis

When Invert Weapon Aiming Y-Axis is on, the bottom of the aiming pad needs to be hit to fire the laser upwards.


Options → Screen allows you control over the placement and size of on screen weapon controls and other buttons.

Weapon Control Panel Size: This slider controls the size of the weapon aiming pad.

Other Button Size: This slider controls the size of all the other on screen buttons available in game play, such as options and in-game boost activation.

Padding: Bottom and side padding sliders are available to control the distance between on screen buttons and the bottom and side of your screen to optimise comfort.

Swap: Various swap buttons are available to swap the positions of on screen controls and allow you to move each control into which ever screen corner you would prefer for that control.
