Mickey and the Roadster Racers Bump 'n' Race Action Game Review (Wonder Forge)

Mickey and the Roadster Racers Bump 'n' Race Action Game
What It Is

Bring the racing from Mickey and the Roadster Racers to life in the new game Mickey and the Roadster Racers Bump 'n' Race Action Game. Players compete in a series of downhill races to win trophies and score points. The first player to five points wins.

Kids can play as Mickey, Minnie, Donald, or Goofy. Once the racecourse is set up, place your Roadster Racer in one of the spots at the starting gate. Then, players take turns spinning the spinner and performing different actions. If you spin Move Roadster, you get to move your Roadster to another position at the Starting Gate, even if that means you trade places with another player. Think strategically when moving because you'll want to avoid obstacles when racing downhill and try to land on a point-scoring spot.

If you spin a Wrench, you get to move your Roadster to an empty wrench position at the starting gate. If both are occupied, trace places with one of those two Roadsters.

If you spin Move Blimp, you can move the blimp to the other side of the finish banner or leave it where it is. There's some strategy with this move because if your Roadster finishes the race under the blimp, you'll earn a silver trophy.

If you spin Rotate Obstacles, you can rotate any or all of the three obstacles to whatever angles you want. This lets you try to block the other Roadsters while creating a clear path for yourself.

And if you spin Race Countdown, you turn the countdown dial one space to the right. Once the dial points to "race", tilt the starting gate and send the Roadsters speeding down the hill.

If any part of your Roadster goes through the opening under the finish banner, take a gold trophy, which is worth two points. If any part of your Roadster is in the gray parking spot under the blimp, take a silver trophy and earn one point.

Is It Fun?
Fans of Mickey and the Roadster Racers are really going to like bringing the racing fun from the show to life with this game. It's easy to learn how to play and really gets kids thinking strategically, from changing places at the starting gate to rotating the obstacles. You never know when the race is going to start, and another player could always come along and thwart your plans. But with two ways to score points you might end up in a good spot anyway. And watching the Roadster Racers zoom down the hill adds to the action and excitement of the game.
