Mario Kart Tour
Mario Kart Tour is a mixture of action and racing genre. The game will take you down the memory lane. At first, it will introduce you with all the legendary Mario characters. All the elements of this game are themed to reflect the good old Mario games.
Like the name of this game suggests, the racing in here takes place in the little cute Karts. The Mario characters, which are basically the drivers, are sitting inside the Kart and they have complete control over it. The Kart will be touring different cities and towns across the world. The outlook of the Kart and character will follow the culture it is in at that particular moment.
To control the Kart, you have extremely simple controls at the bottom of the screen. You can swipe and tap towards left or right to drift. The Kart moves forward on its own, you just have to drift through the crazy curves.
During this race, you will be joined by a bunch of other Mario Kart drivers from across the world. Everyone is aiming for the first spot in the game. To ensure that you end up being the first one to cross the finish line, you can throw items at your opponents which will hinder the race for them. Your Kart will collect footballs and other such items that can be easily thrown at other players.
Players will also collect stars, coins, and many other collectibles. Your inventory will play a major role in performing upgrades. Players will get an opportunity to choose their driver at all levels. If they unlock the flying mode, they will get to choose the gliders too. The more stars you have, the more upgrades you will be able to perform.
