If I had started writing this a few hours ago then the opening paragraph would have been depicting a very wet scene and one that would usually be associated with a rather large boat and quite a few animals. Thankfully I’m not, and the good news is the sun is shining and we’ve got some lovely blue sky starting to appear from behind the clouds here at Codies HQ. Even the weather knows it’s Friday, and of course, being Friday can only mean one thing, it’s time for a Codemasters Weekly Roundup.
So step right up (or sit down in your favourite chair) and have a read through this week’s Toybox Turbos special.
Toybox Turbos – Out Now
It’s been a week for big news, and while humankind have successfully landed on a comet, through what was arguably the greatest trick shot ever, we’ve also seen the release of Toybox Turbos. As of today it’s out on all available formats; Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC via Steam, so what are you waiting for?
To celebrate here’s our launch trailer:
Gotta Race ‘em All
There’s 35 toys from seven different play sets to collect in Toybox Turbos, have you raced them all yet? We have to admit we’ve got a bit of a soft spot for the Milk Float and you can’t go wrong with an Ice Cream Van.
Then of course there’s the battle of the Taxi’s, and while we may be slightly biased, we do find ourselves siding with the Black Cab over the contender from New York.
If you haven’t played Toybox Turbos yet then we’ve got just the thing for you. Head on over to Steam, Xbox.com and the PlayStation Store and you’ll find a demo sitting patiently, just waiting for you to pick it up.
We’ve had loads of great reviews, here are some of our favourites:
“There is something fundamentally fun about racing tiny cars across a breakfast table”
“Great visuals and enormous fun when everyone’s playing in the same room”
“With its retina-strokingly colourful presentation and bouncy musical score, Toybox Turbos is a game whose seemingly only desire is for you to have fun with it.”
“Toybox Turbos is likely to find and entertain an enthusiastic core of fans.”

Alan from Team VVV has been spending some time with Toybox Turbos this week, check it out!
That’s all we’ve got time for this week so we’re off to get the Toybox out, play with some army men and build a train set or two.
We’ll see you all next week, but in the mean time, have a super weekend.
