Codies Weekly Update 24-10-14
Today is a glorious day here at Codemasters, (well not weather–wise), but today we get to do one of the most awesome things we ever get to do and that’s announce a brand new game!
Yes that’s right, today we announced Toybox Turbos – a brand new slice of retro Codies arcade fun!
Bursting with multiplayer fun to share with your friends and family, Toybox Turbos takes you to kitchen tables, pool halls and science labs in this manic, miniaturised table top racer! Each table top track is full of obstacles and shortcuts and filled with awesome and ridiculous power-ups. Use mines, machines guns and, of course, giant (well technically they are pretty small), car-mounted hammers as you race a selection of 35 super-fun toy vehicles, ranging from sports cars to moon buggies, diggers, ice cream vans and loads more.
We’re over the moon with the reaction so far today from you guys, so happy that you’re as excited for Toybox Turbos as we are. Here’re some of our favourite tweets:
