There are some ideas that never lose their appeal, and tiny cars driving really fast around household items is one of them. We have the Micro Machines series to thank for the concept, but Table Top Racing carries it on with aplomb.
Shifting the view from top-down to behind the car, the game has the same rich vein of good natured humour as its inspiration, but adds a few modern twists to make sure iOS gamers don't get bored and wander off.
The game is all about competition. Whether it's against the clock, computer controlled opponents, or real-life friends and foes, crossing the finish line first is always the order of the day. To that end, the game offers simple controls that anyone can get the hang of.
While it may lack the depth of some other racers on the App Store, Table Top Racing has enough gusto and playability to make it a winner
