Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers is a cute budget-friendly racing game you can play with up to 8 players! From its bright visuals to its voxel art, this game feels like a retro racer but with a modern twist.

Gameplay:

Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers is a simple racer that features four race tracks for each map – the city, jungle, and beach. Players race to unlock different vehicles with a total of 20 to unlock. 

The gameplay is pretty straightforward and doesn’t really offer any special features outside of turbo and a few obstacles. I also noticed that each race isn’t timed, so you can’t try to beat your best score either. So personally, I think the single-player experience is pretty limited and lacks in replay value. With that being said, the controls are easy enough for anyone to pick up and play, making this a great game to play at parties or just something to kill a little bit of time with a friend.

Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers also has a party mode with 4 different mini-games. I love mini-games, but there really isn’t much going on here with the gameplay other than just driving around. Overall the controls are easy, but the mini-game maps are so tiny, it makes it hard to control your car in such a small space. But I will say they are a bit fun if you play with a lot of players since it becomes a bit chaotic.

Pros:

  • Can play online or local-play with up to 8 players.
  • Adorable graphics and fun music.
  • There are several language options.

Cons:

  • Doesn’t offer much in terms of gameplay. You’re likely to play it once and not pick it up again.
  • Controls feel weird during the mini-games.
  • While budget-friendly, it’s not worth $10.00 in my opinion, but it’s a cute quick party game to pick up if it’s on sale.

Conclusion:

There really isn’t much more to say about this game other than it’s cute, simple, and needs more content. While the graphics and music are charming, there isn’t much to the gameplay, so I wouldn’t recommend this game for solo play. If you pick it up on sale, Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racers is a cute quick party game you can play with friends.
