Discuss MiniOne Racer here.

Basically it's a cart racer, similar to Mario Kart or Cro Mag Rally. If you're looking for simulation driving this isn't it, but if you're looking for some arcade driving around crazy courses, this should satisfy.

it's not fixed on the download itself. this is one of those where, when the download dialogue comes up, choose "save file" instead of "open". once it is fully downloaded, then it should open in the default manner.

I had similar problems when I downloaded the game.  Then I realized I was not dragging the file to the application file, I was dragging the picture (thinking it was the game file).  Once I dragged the folder to my app file it worked like a charm. 

Have to say, I suck at these kind of games.  At least now I can practice over and over and over to get better.  Then maybe I will be able to play the Mario Wii game better?  I can only hope!  LOL smile

I hate to look a gift horse - but my serial was "invalid" as well - and it's impossible to quit from within the game proper.  Cmd-Q doesn't so much work.  Kind of annoying.

A fun little game, but why ignore UI conventions?

I'm confused.

Powerups are flawed. They either have little effect or they hurt you BIG time. Because this is an arcade racer, this greatly impacts the experience.

IMHO, let's try keeping games out of the next bundle.

My serial worked just fine...the inability to quit is pretty annoying, and I can't help but laugh at in the app, in the toolbar, it says Torque Demo OSX. big_smile

I like the game so far, not much can go wrong with cartoon graphics with my personal favorite engine, Torque.

If you have problems installing/playing MiniOne Racing, please make sure:
- You copied the MiniOne Racing folder in your hard drive
- That you're connected to internet to register your game
- Do not copy/past the serial: you may have copied a space character.
- Every character in you serial is important, case too.

Great! I tried again this morning and that was the problem. Last night it was only saying the file was around 23 MB. No problems with serial number for me, but kind of annoying command Q won't quit the game.

the game is fun, but the Ui is rather irritating. Also, it bugs out quite a lot, its obviously not quite finished. Still, free is free.

My three minute impressions of the game before deleting it:

1. Why is this images subfolder here instead of being a bundled into the app?
2. Why does the menu bar still say Torque Demo OSX?
3. Why does setting the Graphics options to 800x600 windowed (the way I prefer to run most games on my MacBook) not change anything from 1024x768 (which is the default)?
4. It didn't ask for my serial number at any point, so I got a "Buy the Full Version" splash screen.
5. Found where to enter the number, and it's invalid, apparently.

I don't feel like beta testing right now.

1. What's the problem with that?
2. It's a *cosmetic* bug, it'll be fixed in the next version. Torque Game Engine is the game engine we used.
3. Click "Apply" after having selected your graphic option.
4. Here more information how to enter the serial number: http://www.frogames.com/backMoR.php
5. Your serial is valid. Please refer to my previous post.

It is already there. I can play, but at some point it  does not hide loading screen. And seems not hide before restart.

The first time I downloaded this the DMG wouldn't mount.  But today I was able to download without problem, so I guess the problem was temporary.  I tried the game a few times, and the play seems a bit familiar, reminding me of the "Nanosaur" game that used to be included with Macs a few years back.  The "Torque Demo OSX" threw me at first, as it seems to imply that the game is still in demo mode, when in fact it appears to have accepted the serial number.

My general impression is that this is a fine game for a freebie, but I probably wouldn't purchase it.

The problem is that mac-users have come to expect all apps to be just one single file, not lots dotted around the place like on windows.

Feel free to only copy the application on your hard drive. We ask users to copy the folder but only because it contains information about how to play the game and how to contact us if necessary (things that can't be bundled with the application .app.

I got the game to work fine, but there's no collision detection between the cars, and it's very hard to tell how to use powerups.
