Micro Machines was released and many fealt that it was not as much fun as playing with the little cars.
You drive around small, Micro Machine-like cars on various fantastic tracks and use weapons to win the race by taking out your competition. Weapons are picked up on the track as powerups or purchased in the time between races.
Each car has its own driver who has a unique haircut, costume and personality that goes with the cars that they drive. Picking a car also picks the driver that goes with the car making the game more engaging and fun. Each character has their own entertaining script of pat phrases which also helps keep the action going.
Motor Mash has very striking three dimensional graphics seen from the overhead (45 degree) oblique perspective. The graphics are brillint combinations of textured white snow, blue and purple ice for the snow scene and brilliant pastel green terrain, with orange and dark blue rocks and terrain feaures and a dark green road surface for the temperate zone areas. In fact, these are two of many brilliant environments that will keep gamers coming back for more just to see the irridescent terrain.
