Viewed from overhead with small graphics, the races include up to 4 cars. In one player challenge mode you race through the 21 tracks in a set order, selecting your 3 opponents as you go along (adding a fair amount of strategy - ideally you should aim to eliminate the better CPU cars early on), eliminating one after every third race (assuming that you can finish in the top 2 of a race within your 3 lives). If you win 3 races in a row without using a continue you get a time-trial race which can earn you an extra life.
The range of vehicles in Micro Machines is also quite extreme from the land-based sports cars, 4x4s, turbo wheels, tanks to other funky vehicles such as choppers and powerboats. Play is also available in one or two player modes with head to head satisfying satisfy one-on-one player gaming for single players and challenge pitting single players in a four-player tournament. The multi-player modes are tournament and single and provide some of the most insane multi-player battle.
