Moving swiftly and sure-footedly from trucks to cars, without even putting a foot on the ground, we come to Carnage. Another vertically viewed racing game. This time, you are in a car of microscopic proportions - it looks as if it's been ported from Sim Ant.
Three other cars, which can be controlled by other players, are lined up on the diminutive grid, and the idea is to race round, which Badlands-
Controlling the vehicles is standard for this sort of game. You will nevertheless spend a fair amount of time bouncing off the walls, the other cars and finally off the screen (well, your skull will, as you get closer and closer to it, trying to see what the hell is going on down there).
The game is well programmed - the cars move in the bouncy sort of Tonka way you'll have seen may a time with this sort of thing. You stand a good chance of winning as long as you don't collide with anything.
Despite all this, the game isn't bad, but it isn't very good either. You'll find yourself getting bored with it after a couple of circuits. And this boredom will increase until it engulfs your family, your road and finally the whole world. Can you afford to take this risk? Actually, the game is unlikely to do this, but it is uninteresting enough to warrant having this absurd joke made about it.
