Have you ever seen such an amazing car selection screen?
So how does Fromto work?

After all players collected their vehicle of choice by foot in a short mini-game-like-lobby (see the yellow screenshot above), they will start the first phase in a quite wild, but pre-set level. All players try to first reach a checkpoint and then the finish line. But this probably won’t happen in the first attempt, it’s more for checking out the level.
    
                   1: Learn the track  |  2: Find crated or go shopping

After all players finished their try, the magic happens in the second phase: All the little cars turn into helicopters and you’re going to collect different, randomly dropped crates which contain new track parts to place in the pre-set level: This can be helpful things like new platforms, ramps and jump pads or hindering elements such as obstacles and traps for your opponents, or just fun things like a cannon that shoots small bubbles of glue.

In addition to those random pieces, there is a shop for every player where you can buy even more ‘helpful’ things with points earned by performing stunts. Overall, there are more than 50 different parts that can be placed. A time limit will stop your creativity after 60 seconds and the next round will start.
    
3: Add or remove elements  |  4: Reach the finish!             

All of this comes with a very special art style, as the game was created by the developer and contemporary artist Erik Habets, together with his two kids Niki (5) and Joep (2). Do not be mistaken, although the game might look childish, Fromto is not only for the young ones. This is a game for kids from ages 8 to 108 – and specifically for the grownup kids (and influencers)!  😉
