Featured MiniDrivers: a free-to-play F1-themed kart racer

Discussion in 'Other Racing Games' started by Alex Franchini, Apr 15, 2015.


  1. Take a look at the launch trailer for MiniDrivers, a free-to-play smartphone racer based on the MiniDrivers cartoon series. Need something to do instead of working or studying? Here's an answer.

    MiniDrivers is a parody web series born in 2008 which quickly sums up Formula 1 races in a whimsical, silly style with big heads and high-pitched voices. Their style of humor might not be to everybody's taste, but now the web series has entered the realm of racing games.

    Judging from the trailer, it looks like a kart racer in the vein of Mario Kart, F1 Race Stars and ModNation Racers, in which you can select and upgrade cars based on the 2015 F1 season.
    The tracks themselves are smaller, simpler renditions of the actual circuits too, and it doesn't look too bad.

    It's a free-to-play title for smartphone devices (iOS, Android and Windows Phone), though it looks like it contains microtransactions. No idea on how balanced or greedy it might be, at least for now.

    Kimi's little bobble head makes me laugh... as unenthusiastic looking in a cartoon game as he comes across in real-life! :roflmao: He also appears slightly unimpressed - I think somebody needs an ice cream!

    Meanwhile everybody else looks really excitable and eager to go, though it would have been funny to see the exchange of sideways glances between Lewis and Nico! :sneaky::cautious:
     
  3. I can't seem to find it on the Windows Phone store...

    No money, no team racing.

    What I like about this game is that it's still a better love story than Twilight.

  7. Not an amazing game. Whilst fun you have to pay an awful lot to progress, it is quite greedy.

    I played it a bit, you can get your cars without paying a dime and without too much time spent in it, as long as you keep winning!
