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Every track has been replaced by one I’ve created completely myself, including the Battle Mode courses.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.

A great hack!

Reviewed By: Hamlet on 22 Apr 2010

This is a great hack. Basically it feels like a sequel to the original. The creator had a lot of great creative ideas and was successfully able to transfer them from the realm of ideas to the game itself. Just check out the new Koopa Beach at the beginning of the Star Cup. I do not want to spoil it, because I had a real blast the first time I played it. My first thought was: “Where am I supposed to go?” And my second thought was: “So I can… WOW this is awesome!”

All the new courses can be a challenge but they are not too difficult. Just as manageable as in the original.

So if you like “Super Mario Kart” and want to try a really good reimagination of this fantastic game, try this hack, I’m pretty sure You won’t be disappointed!
