An overhead-viewed racer sounds like something out of the '80s, and indeed in many respects, Micro Machines is a retrogame. Racing is ever so simple. The player chooses a Micro Machine -- which range from racing cars and offroad trucks to big rigs and ice cream trucks -- and races it over a series of weird and wonderful, differently-themed courses. A breakfast table mightn't sound like a thrilling place to race, but when you're a piddly Micro Machine, all of a sudden spilled milk becomes a lake, splotches of syrup become deadly sticky pools and spoons, bowls and bottles become building-sized obstacles. Another course is set on a series of school desks. Pencils, erasers and books form impassable obstacles, and the rulers connecting the desks form thin, perilous roads whose lack of guard rails means a deadly fall is only a spaz twitch away.
