Micro Machines is back! Sort of anyway, because Codemasters has announced Toybox Turbos, a top-down tabletop racing game inspired by childhood locations. It sure looks like Micro Machines, right to Cheerios marking out the track, so presumably Codemasters lost the license somewhere along the way. Whatever the case, Toybox Turbos looks like Micro Machines as we know and love it, offering up 18 obstacle-filled courses packed with nifty shortcuts and treacherous turns around pots of jam and spilled ink.
Contrary to Codemasters’ typical racing fare you’ll be tossing out Brand’s Hatch and the Nürburgring in favour of Bunsen burners and breakfast tables, nimbly dodging knives and forks in top-down racing. True to form, four-player local multiplayer is back, along with online multiplayer modes for those inevitable late-night sessions. [More]
