Become a grease monkey and join the Manic Mechanics!

Manic Mechanics is now on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Switch

You may have enjoyed the chaotic co-op of Overcooked!, or Tools Up, or even Speed Crew. But have you ever joined the Manic Mechanics? It’s time to get tooled up and become a grease monkey – again. 

Manic Mechanics starts working under the hood on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S today, all for the price of £19.99. A crazy cooperative affair that is also on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC, this sees 4J Studios go to town, as the mechanically minded petrolheads get together for some fun. 

Joining the Manic Mechanics?

In Manic Mechanics you’ll be left to stick on your overalls and get to work on the car-obsessed Octane Isle. It’s here where fame andf fortune awaits as you look to make a name for yourself, joining crews, proving yourself as worthy of the mechanics guild. 

What this means is the usual madness that is associated with such games. Against the clock you’ll be tasked with repairing as may vehilces as you possibly can. There will be cars, trucks, choppers, tractors, mini-subs and even UFOs dropping into your garage. Whatever it is, you’ll need to work fast in fixing it up, making it look sharp. 

Previously available on Switch, Manic Mechanics lands on other formats today with new plans. 4J Studios have implemented a Versus mode, Competitive mode, a new neighbourhood, more characters and further twists. That means you’ll discover more than 30 levels to play through, fixing up the vehicles in each. Of course, the twists come in the form of fuel spills, exploding tyres, short-circuiting robots, stampeding cows and even alien abductions, with hilariously chaotic consequences. 

Buy now!

Manic Mechanics is now on the Xbox Store, playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It’s also on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC. 

Stay tuned for our review. We’ve been shouting at each other for a little while with this one already – a review is fast incoming. 

Manic Mechanics Description

It’s time to dust off your overalls and hitch on your toolbelt in Manic Mechanics – a chaotic couch co-op game where you and up to three fellow grease monkeys pay a visit to the car-obsessed Octane Isle.

Your mission? Work your way around the island’s six neighbourhoods – from the rust buckets of Betty’s Scrapyard to the spooky shores of Banshee Bay – challenging the Master Mechanics that rule each part of town. Repair as many cars, trucks, choppers, tractors, mini-subs (and even UFOs) as possible to prove your worth in this hectic race against the clock.

No two games are the same as you work your way through 30 unique garage levels, each one more challenging than the last. Completing a garage is one thing, but mastering it and beating your best score requires coordination, skill and determination.

Octane Isle is a great place to visit, whether you go solo or bring along your friends. In co-op mode, up to four players work together as a finely-tuned machine, tracking their team’s best scores, unlocking new characters and discovering hidden secrets as they explore Octane Isle together. Or maybe you’ll choose to head straight to the Versus Arena, split into teams and decide once and for all which crew truly rules the workshop? Whether you choose co-op or competitive, the action unfolds across local, wireless and online play.

Just about anything can happen on Octane Isle… the faster you work, the more chaos is unleashed. Fuel ignites, tyres explode, robots short-circuit, cows stampede and aliens abduct, but with teamwork, skill – and maybe just a little luck – you’ll earn the right to call yourselves a Manic Mechanic!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
