Super Mario Kart Alternate Tracks

Hack of Super Mario Kart

Description:

I’ve been a fan of Super Mario Kart since I first played it in the early/mid nineties. Late last year I happened upon a romhack called Super Mario Kart: Pro Edition and was very impressed at the quality (though I was humbled by its difficulty). It inspired me to start my own hack of the tracks, with a focus on maintaining the feel of the original game.

Every track has been replaced by one I’ve created completely myself, including the Battle Mode courses. I’ve tried to avoid putting in overly complicated or silly courses like some hacks of this game have, but at the same time I’ve snuck in a couple of new ideas.

The AI works in all courses, and offers a challenge, but is far from unbeatable.

Marios racing is hardcore again...

Reviewed By: the cool guy on 21 Oct 2012

Super Mario Kart Alternate Tracks is a hack that changes all of these SNES SMK racetracks around to new ones. And like the original this game is not the Mario racing party the series is now. There have not been any hardcore Mario Kart games since the original. Sure there is Super Circuit but that game did not really make the cut and was not quite as hardcore as the original. These racetracks are for the hardcore taking you back to the roots of the series. For the graphics, they look like they always did. Music is also the same because this hack is only about racetracks. One thing is that these stage always seems to get the amount of time between a set of coins or a jump or an item box just right. It feels very well planned and with 150 CC you better be ready. It’s all planned so well. The difficulty is almost perfect. Really, I could go on and on here. For fans of the newer Mario Kart games, it is not as much fun. Because it is not designed for the party elements the series now uses, newer gamers might not have that much fun. I could go on and on but in the end SMK fans and hardcore gamers will love it. Everyone else should stay away.
