Developed by Creator/{{Codemasters}}, the Micro Machines games took the popular children's toys and turned them into a top-down racer set in a MacroZone. Whether racing 4x4s on the breakfast table or F1 cars in the games room, the Micro Machines series has a great combination of fun, amusing details (such as the cereal boxes with "[[TakeThat 100% Artificial Ingredients]]" written on them) and multiplayer madness.

The games are notable for their main multiplayer mode where players all share the same screen. Instead of being a first-to-the-finish race, players are eliminated if they trail too far behind, until only one player is left standing. That player then scores a point, everyone is brought back into play at that spot, and another round begins. The players keep racing around the course until one has scored enough points to win.



* RubberBandAI: In the original game, a car that was behind you would be faster than if it was in front of you. It didn't matter how far ahead/behind they were, however, so if that wasn't enough, there was no further help coming. It also featured a rather hilarious, and unintentional, [[UnstableEquilibrium inversion]]: if you put the fastest drivers in the fastest cars, the speed boost from being behind would be more than the AI could handle, causing the cars to leave the track and fall even further behind.

** The games had another catch-up mechanic in the form of the game's camera; the further ahead the player is, the less they can see in front of them, putting them at a disadvantage unless they had the track memorized.

** ''Micro Maniacs'' made everyone ugly, but it was ultimately just a way of making it seem DarkerAndEdgier.
*** Debatable with Vortex and Pyra. Vortex is only offset by the striking two-tone skin, but even then she is quite the stunner. Pyra is almost statuesque ... until you remember that she is literally living fire and probably a virtually-hollow skin. Roach was probably quite handsome before his karmic punishment, and we have no idea what V4, Twister or Beatbox really look(ed) like.
