Codemasters and Chillingo are working together to bring an updated version of classic '90s racer Micro Machines to the App Store. This makes me sort of happy.

Micro Machines was one of the best racers of its generation. Top-down zaniness featuring tiny cars bezzing around pool tables and gardens. It is a solid and unbreakable part of my childhood.

So you can imagine that the above trailer got my oily juices flowing just a little. Look at the tiny cars! Look at the explosions! Look how slightly crazy it looks.

Obviously the proof will be in the pudding, or in this case the game, but with Codemasters being involved, this is definitely on our ones-to-watch list.

Micro Machines will be out on the App Store sometime later in the year. We will, of course, let you know when it lands.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to pray to the old gods to see if we can get a Skidmarks game on mobile.
