We got our paws on this overhead racer back in March at GDC. We were pretty impressed with the game then, and we still like what we see. Today marks the day of the game’s actual release, and we couldn’t be more excited to take it out for a spin.
Mini Motor Racing is a retina-display-ready isometric top-down racer made for iOS devices. There are over 20 of tracks and locations, as can be seen below in the screenshots. In addition, players can upgrade the four different car types (sports, hatch, big-rig and pick-up) with a variety of different add ons like grip, top-speed, acceleration and nitro.
But wait, there’s more. Mini Motor Racing has a special Fruit Ninja themed buggy and track. FRUIT NINJA!!! Says The Binary Mill, “The Halfbrick folks are located very close to the Mini Motor Racing team from The Binary Mill, and they’re good friends — resulting in this fun addition.”
Also, there will be holiday themed cup where players can race as Santa himself, steering a souped up version of his sleigh! Both track add-ons are available as un-locks for players progressing through achievements in the game’s career cup circuits.
All in all, these are very exciting additions to an already exciting game. Grab it right away and stay tuned for a review coming soon – The iPhone/iPod Touch version sells for $1.99 USD and the HD iPad version is $3.99 USD.
