Racing games are nothing new on Android, but Mini Motor Racing has a fun look and feel you just don't see very often. In this game you're racing nitro-infused remote-controlled cars, and what could be cooler than that? Name one thing you would have wanted more as a kid. You can't, can you?

Mini Motor Racing has the kind of features you'd expect out of a racing game, like plenty of cars, spec upgrades, and multiple control schemes. I'm happy to see the game also launch with Wi-Fi multiplayer; something many games omit. There are 20 different tracks that you can race on, but with varying weather conditions offer even more permutations.

Graphically, Mini Motor Racing looks like a real treat. The developer claims the game is enhanced for "fast devices," but isn't entirely clear what that means. Perhaps some Tegra-only additions? The game is huge, clocking in at 161MB. That's the largest game I've seen listed as a single package in the Play Store. It uses the Android built-in additional data download, so make sure you've got a good data connection before proceeding. Two bucks seems like a fair deal.

    The visuals look fantastic. Also one of the best trailers I've seen in a while. This one is a no-brainer for $1.99.

    There is one thing missing, the name "Micro Machines" or at least "Super RC Pro am".

    Deer Hunter reloaded is bigger, a lot bigger =D looks nice though, I'll give it a whirl.
    Btw, thanks for the heads up on office suite and Flipboard, good call!

    This was actually pretty great. Excellent controls, cool gfx, charming and polished. Uneven difficulty though. Extremely easy for some time and them; bam! Suddenly hard. Nothing gradual about it.
    Minor stuff. Still a great game.
    Looking forward to testing multiplayer.

    Thanks for the tip.

    "The game is huge, clocking in at 161MB." Haven't downloaded any Gameloft games recenty, have you? :) Usually they're maaany times bigger.

    • RyanWhitwam

      Huge for a game that is downloaded directly from the Play Store. The additional data comes right from your Play install.

      • Barton82

        It's just because the option to download bigger files from the Play Store was unavailable until recently.

          I am aware of this.

    At last, a Super Skid marks clone! I wonder if it'll be half as fun though...

    Question to those who bought the game: Are in-app purchases necessary to progress at a reasonable speed in the game? I don't want to be paying $2 and then more to play the game. Also, is there a bonus game pack to be purchased in-app? This seems to be the case with the iOS version, but I'm not sure about Android. Thanks!
