Are you one of the many gamers who once had a great time playing Super Mario Kart? Then it would be best if you didn't miss this review, in which we will analyze all aspects of the hilarious SuperTuxKart*. When we talk about this game, we can say in the first instance that it takes the spirit of that classic but adds some touches of its own, which will undoubtedly increase our chances.
If the beloved Super Mario Kart marked a before and after in the history of racing car games, in this case, we have to say that SuperTuxKart lacks absolutely none of its positive points. That is to say, you also have the chance to perform all kinds of actions trying to reach the finish line before your rivals and have a huge amount of help at your disposal to get rid of them.
Of course, as regards the differences between both games, we have to point out that SuperTuxKart has a series of characters, all of which are characterized by belonging to the world of free software. Among these characters, we can point out some particularly attractive ones, such as GIMP, Pidgin, or Tux, although there are others.
The initial proposal of the game is to give a hand to the famous penguin, who is the representative mark of the operating system GNU/Linux, so that he can impose himself in most of the races ahead of him with his kart. However, as we said before, you have absolute freedom when selecting other characters.
And what kind of actions can I perform when racing in SuperTuxKart? Well, of course, you can accelerate, turn, or brake whenever you want. But you also have the chance to push your opponents out of the way to make it easier for you to reach the finish line. On the other hand, keep in mind that your opponents will also be able to push you, so be careful when they are close to your position because you could be in danger.
In many ways, those who had fun with Crash Team Racing will also find several commonalities between that game and this SuperTuxKart. You'll find yourself with a scoreboard and objectives to develop in varied scenarios, always trying to show your true ability as a driver.
Normally, the usual thing when we carry out a game in SuperTuxKart is to do it within the History Mode, which is the one that will allow us to go harvesting all kinds of achievements and leave them stored within our career. However, you will be able to access many other competition formats, so don't hesitate to give each of them a try to see which one suits you best.
Of course, like any good racing game, winning is important because we are fulfilling objectives. We also have to do it because it allows us to access many unlockable items. As you advance in the game, you will have access to new circuits, characters, and many other attractive contents that will allow you to discover new fun ways within the game.
And suppose you prefer, instead of having fun challenging the system's artificial intelligence. You can also fight against your friends or colleagues through a local or Internet connection. In this type of game, there are not as many modes available as in single-player games, but you can still challenge whoever you want to reach the finish line first.
We also wanted to mention that if we liked the graphics of SuperTuxKart, we think the music goes very well, offering a unique spirit to the game, which makes it unmistakable from any other game. Of course, if you don't feel the same way about the music, you can cancel it and listen to what you want with another program.
Before finishing, it is convenient to remember that SuperTuxKart is an open-source game, which means that it is not only free at the moment but will continue to be so in the future, while none of its internal contents are paid.
When it comes to pointing out the main strengths of this game, we believe that some of them have to do with the endless number of scenarios, levels, and challenges we can encounter, thanks to its many game modes. At the same time, we have a variety of famous characters to choose from, and in general terms, the combination of graphics and sound seemed very good to us.
On the other hand, we regret certain aspects of SuperTuxKart, particularly related to the absence of some specific content. For example, there is no Battle Mode, and it is missed. If you can do without these elements, you won't find many cons to this title because it is complete.
In summary, we conclude that SuperTuxKart is one of the best games you can install on your computer if you like racing titles in which you can get rid of enemies by speed… or by resorting to other tactics.
