Mini Motor Racing X is a car racing game developed by The Binary Mill. It is available for the Quest through Oculus Store.
One of the first things I discovered about Mini Motor Racing X was that it had been ported from mobile devices to PC and consoles. This explains why it is very simple, but doesn’t stop being fun. In this sense, I think the port to Quest is a great decision. It is very light and can be played anywhere, and although this has some negative implications (such as poor graphics) it’s nice to be able to play it on a virtual reality headset.
Other than that, the game itself is similar to Mario Kart, where you start with one car and have to beat other opponents to unlock cars and tracks. It is a child-friendly game, so the physics are very forgiving and there’s no need for high precision when driving.
Even though it may seem boring just controlling a car around the track, you can play online together with friends or random people over the internet. This adds a new dimension to the game and makes it a lot more fun.
I have been playing Mini Motor Racing X for about a week, and I think it’s definitely worth its price on the Oculus Store. It can be played without a virtual reality headset as well, but if you have one, the experience is much better.
When I talk about this game with other people, I try to say that in my opinion, it’s like Nintendo made a Mario Kart game… in the ’90s. It has all of the charm and simplicity you can find in old video games.
This game is definitely not for everyone, but if you are looking for something casual to play with friends or family, I can definitely recommend this game.
