Micro Maniacs is Miniature Mayhem

Codemasters have joined forces with FoxKids.com to bring us the small and almost perfectly formed Micro Maniacs Racing. This game has all the familiar elements of its predecessor, Micro Machines. Twelve miniature mutants, four of whom have to be unlocked before you can play with them, race through various giant environments. Actually the environments, like kitchen tables, bathrooms and the back yard are normal size, but since the mutants are so small, even a mundane object like a kitchen table can be an incredible obstacle to tackle. Each character has a special power, which can be used against the other … Continue reading Micro Maniacs is Miniature Mayhem

The preceding intro to this review should give you an idea of my musical talents, but for even a complete novice like me, MTV Music Generator is a fun ride into musical creativity. The game (if you can really call it that, it works more like a program) consists of a huge library of riffs, baselines, vocals, etc. that you combine in … Continue reading MTV Music Generator rocks

Touring Car Challenge doesn’t lose horsepower in translation

When I was first given Touring Car Challenge, one of the first products released in the United States from European-based Codemasters, I figured it had a few strikes against it right off the cricket bat. For one, the product was a simulation of British racing. And like Dr. Who and boiled beef, its not often that British games take off in the fickle U.S. market. But forget all that. Touring Car Challenge is more like The Beatles than Dr. Who. It’s an amazingly beautiful and highly detailed game that has the potential to climb the ranks of racing simulations and … Continue reading Touring Car Challenge doesn’t lose horsepower in translation
