Indie game developer Ajesh Nair from Omnaya Studios has announced the open beta for Toy Rider, a charming new racing game on mobile. The title takes inspiration from Nair's love for MicroMachines, and lets players use their powers of speed, balancing and timing to race to the finish line against their foes.

In Toy Rider, players can expect to race through adorable miniature environments using more than a hundred different cars to choose from across 15 languages. There are ten epic power-ups to collect, with exciting upgrade systems to spice things up with every new race.

The game also boasts 16 main levels and eight additional ones for players to tinker around with. Based on the game's official trailer, it does seem like a fun little ride that sort of gives me major Toy Story vibes.

"What makes it different from a typical car racing game is that it is not just about speed - it is about balancing, timing, proper use of power-ups and proper speed! Very cool and high-quality graphics too," says Nair.
