SuperTuxKart

SuperTuxKart 0.8

Re-release of a karting classic

One of the few Super Nintendo games that has really stood the test of time is Mario Kart, and the concept of guiding an armed cartoon character around a series of tracks never seems to lose its appeal. SuperTuxKart provides you with a blast from the past with a game that borrows more than a little of its ideas from the Nintendo classic. Despite being a bit of a rip-off of Mario Kart (or because of it, depending on which way you look at it), this game is great fun to play. The courses are diverse, challenging and easy on the eye, and the characters are interesting too. There are lots of amusing power-ups to pick up and chuck at your opponents along the way, and the computer-controlled drivers are certainly not afraid to use them, so you need to be on your toes if you want to get anywhere in SuperTuxKart.

One of the few Super Nintendo games that has really stood the test of time is Mario Kart, and the concept of guiding an armed cartoon character around a series of tracks never seems to lose its appeal. SuperTuxKart provides you with a blast from the past with a game that borrows more than a little of its ideas from the Nintendo classic. Despite being a bit of a rip-off of Mario Kart (or because of it, depending on which way you look at it), this game is great fun to play.

There are lots of amusing power-ups to pick up and chuck at your opponents along the way, and the computer-controlled drivers are certainly not afraid to use them, so you need to be on your toes if you want to get anywhere in SuperTuxKart.

There are three different game modes to test you, namely: Time Trial, Quick Race and Grand Prix. Unfortunately, there's no equivilent of Mario Kart's Battle Mode, which is still my favourite part of the game. Also, as the game is still in development, there are a few glitches such as the fact that some of the levels take a long time to load. However, anyone who enjoyed playing Mario Kart will find this an amusing diversion.

SuperTuxKart is a Free 3D kart racing game, with many tracks, characters and items for you to try. Have fun!

SuperTuxKart is a Free 3d kart racing game; we want to make the game fun more than we want to make it realistic. You can play with up to 4 friends on one PC, racing against each other or just try to beat the computer (a network multiplayer feature is planned). See the great lighthouse or drive through the sand and visit the pyramids. Race underground or in space, watching the stars passing by. Have some rest under the palms on the beach. But don't eat the bananas! Watch for bowling balls, plungers, bubble gum and cakes thrown by opponents. You can do a single race against other karts, compete in one of several Grand Prix, try to beat the high score in time trials on your own, play battle mode against your friends, and more!

* Over 20 tracks and battle arenas * Split-screen multiplayer support * Many game modes * Grand Prix * Single Race * Time Trial * Follow-the-leader * 3-Strikes Battles * Funny characters * Runs on GNU/Linux, Windows, MacOSX, FreeBSD, Solaris

SuperTuxKart features a unique set of characters and tracks, original wacky weapons (plungers, swatters, bubblegum, explosive cakes), complete with original soundtrack - available free for everyone!

SuperTuxKart is perfect for people looking for a simple, fun game to do crazy races (as opposed to realistic driving simulator type games). With different levels of difficulty, can appeal to both children and more experienced gamers.
