MiniOne Racing Reviewed

Big Download recently posted a review of Frogames' MiniOne Racing. In the game players race a collection of unique miniature vehicles through a variety of locations from virtual beaches to other planets. MiniOne Racing features two game modes, multiplayer action for up to 4 players, and an online high score list.

From the review:

Every car has the ability to fire tiny pellets at other cars. If you're lucky, your "bullet" will hit your opponent at just the right time to make them miss the next turn, but the chances of that are small. Even with a dead-on impact, the other car simply rocks a bit forward on its carriage, then goes back to racing as if nothing had happened. If you want to stand more of a chance to affect your enemies, then you need to stick with proper application of the power-ups.

There are six "action bonuses" in all, each triggered by the space bar: Boost, which gives you a couple of seconds of slightly-faster motion; Levitation, which causes all other cars to hover for two seconds, during which time they can't turn; Mines, which drops four obstacles behind your car; Invisibility, which renders your car unseeable to both your opponents and you; Dark Spiral, that restricts your viewpoint, no matter which camera mode you're using, to a small tunnel surrounded by blackness for about ten seconds; and Master, that randomly chooses a car as the recipient of a repellent electrical charge for a few seconds.
