MINI France has released a cool new Facebook flash game which uses Google Maps as the platform. Users can race people on their Friends list on pretty much any location around the world.
The game can incorporate real-time weather too, as well as the time of day of the location. It’s all laid out in a bird’s eye view platform, kind of like the original Grand Theft Auto PlayStation game.
Game developers say they used sound recordings of real MINIs to come up with the engine noises in the game, as well as life-like tyre screeches. If you have some time to kill, or are an avid Google Maps enthusiast, you can check out the game by following this link.
