Super Mario Kart 8 is a fun kart racing game where you can choose to play as one of eight characters from the Mario series, including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Bowser, Donkey Kong Jr., Koopa Troopa, and Toad. The objective of the game is to finish a race ahead of other racers or complete a circuit in the fastest time.
If you enjoy Super Mario Kart 8, you should also try playing Super Mario Kart for a similar racing experience.
In the game, you control your chosen character and race against computer-controlled opponents and other players on tracks inspired by the Mario franchise. The main objective is to either finish a race ahead of other racers or complete a circuit in the fastest time.
To gain an advantage during the race, you can collect power-ups that give you special abilities. For example, you can throw shells and bananas at other racers to make them spin out and lose control. Each character has unique special powers that they can use throughout the race.
You'll also find lines of coins on the tracks in competitive race modes. When you drive over these coins, your kart collects them, which increases its top speed. Coins are helpful because if your kart gets hit by another racer or a power-up, instead of spinning out of control, you simply lose a coin. However, if your kart falls off the track or gets hit too many times, you'll lose some of your collected coins.
