Comments on: MicroQuad Review for Palm OS

MicroQuad review for Palm OSMario Kart on the Nintendo SNES was one of my favorite time wasters back in the early-mid 90s. Now a similarly themed title has made its way to the Palm platform courtesy of Viex Games & Xavier Martin. Read on for Kris' review of MicroQuad, one of the Palm OS's finest racing titles!

The review could also talk about AI part of the game, wich honestly is lacking. The player cannot compete with the computer on same terms, sometimes computer cheat on speed so bad that the last quad could fly by pass you in a short time. And because of the limited AI the game can get boring, too bad, the graphics are so great and overall the game is nice and solid, cept the AI.

I too have found MicroQuad to be a watershed in native Palm OS gaming. It really is as elegant as Mario Kart. I must say, this game works flawlessly on my LifeDrive and has for months. I cover this game in my Life of a LifeDrive photoset on my Flickr page. You might be interested in perusing my little site for more screenshots and comments on MicroQuad:

Thanks for the commments & link, Mike.

This title isn't perfect (is there any game that IS?) but it holds up very well against Kart racers on any platform. Taking into consideration the variety of POS handhelds it runs well on it's absolutely amazing.

Rather sad that the best milestone moments in Palm gaming history are seldom (if ever) updated and even less often revisited with sequels or expansion packs.

In fact, I'm planning an editorial/feature story in the near future about the overlooked & forgotten gems of the Palm gaming scene. If you have anything you'd like to contribute or suggest, mail Ryan and we'll look into it.

I think you lost it Kris. A review on a few year old game? Genious!

Nah, I'm just kidding. Its a fun game. Did you ever get to try EDGE?
