MiniMania 1

First Impression

It’s a short track and it looks fun.

Track Design

Weird or cool? You decide for yourself. I go for the latter. The twist: well, the checkpoints are kind of next to the actual road. The result: a bouncy, quite strange off-road track.

On the first run or two, you’re sure to be surprised and confused, but don’t worry. The track is short, and thus your confusion will be short-lived. Within two minutes you’ll be bouncing around like you’ve never done anything else. The challenge: reach the finish without bouncing off course.

Should be quite fun online and great for WR hunts.

Rating: 8.5 +

Scenery

Scenery? What scenery? Oh you mean those trees and that house! Ok 🙂

Rating: 3.0 +

MediaTracker

Intro: It lasts like 3 seconds, it’s kinda cool, but still… nice flashes.

Ingame: Nothing.

Outro: Nothing.

The rating is low because there’s no Outro.

Rating: 4.0 +

Originality

Hehe, this track wins a few points here. I’ve never seen such a track. This one is a stunt track where you bounce everywhere and try to get a smooth landing in order to win some time, pretty cool I say.

Rating: 10.0 +

Fun Factor

More points here, this is a track that is very fun to master but takes a lot of time, so I’m sure this one would entertain you for hours since there’s a great author time too. The fun lives on online as well.

Rating: 10.0 +

Summary

It’s a nice mini that lacks in MT and scenery, but that’s not important on a funtrack like this one, so…

Final Rating: 8.0 (very good) ++++

***

Notes:

– Ratings range from 1 (bad) to 10 (perfect). 5 is average.

– The final rating of a track is not the average of all sub-ratings. For example, a track not being very original doesn’t mean it’s a bad track.

You can NOT request track reviews at the time being. Review requests are accepted again in August.

Your help is always needed! If you are interested in writing track reviews for the TMU Blog, you may apply by dropping an e-mail to Jozii@pp.inet.fi.
