Players control micro sized garden people who are apart of a micro sized, racing tournament. They ride on modified snails and the race takes place across various outdoor environments. Squashed’s gameplay focuses on a knock out styled racing mode. A player that falls behind due to an obstacle or being shunted off the edge, is automatically destroyed. This continues until only one player is left and the round then ends. This continues until one player has accrued the winning amount of points and takes out the tournament.
