    A racing game that won't pull out any big surprises, but may well wind up as your go-to iOS racer.

    Mini Motor Racing takes a proven genre and improves upon it by providing its own additional artistic touch. The result is a very gratifying racing experience that will keep players coming back for lap after lap. Everyone start your engines!

    Featuring a large variety of short tracks, upgradeable cars, and terrific graphics, Mini Motor Racing is a quality title that, despite a few quirks, manages to impress.

    I for one would have preferred to delay the release and wait instead for the full featured game, with online play. Having said that, the single player game is strong enough to stand on it's own two feet without online play, and I wouldn't want you to miss it for the world.

    It's easy to let Mini Motor Racing get its hooks into you, since it comes with quality from so many places at once. It's a well polished racer with fantastic visuals, lots of varied tracks and cars, multiple control options to please all comers and oozes style. Minor issues keep it from being perfect, sure, but this one is an easy one to give two thumbs up.

    It might have a nice body kit and some go-faster stripes, but Mini Motor Racing drives more like an old banger than a sleek, sporty number.

    Incredibly charming top-down racer that controls better than Death Rally or Reckless Racing. Feels a little repetitive as the total number of tracks feels inflated; many courses are recycled as reverse and night variants.

    The handling of the vehicles is generally good but becomes uncontrollable while activating the nitro pickup. Colliding neutralizes speed a little too quick; on the whole Mini Motor Racing is one of the best top-down racers on the App Store.

    There was a game called Ignition back in the nineties. Exactly the same. Even some of the cars are there, like the police car, the tow truck and the schoolbus, Expand
