Name: SuperKarts (1995)
License: Abandonware
Author: Manic Media Productions Ltd.
Category: Racing

Description: One of the best go-kart racing games ever made for the PC, Virgin's SuperKarts features excellent cartoon-style graphics, worldwide tracks, and addictive gameplay that strikes a good balance between car handling realism and playability. The game even offers multiplayer via LAN/IPX mode-- a rarity for its time. Gameplay is simple arcade fun: choose a face and nationality for yourself, then jump in the kart and play either a quick round, or half or full season. You can choose the number of laps, as well as difficulty level (although "medium" is more like "difficult"). Although graphics are somewhat pixellated, the appeal of SuperKarts lies in attention to detail and a wide variety of tracks. Scrape a metal fence, for example, and you'll see sparks fly out of your kart with appropriate sound effects. Some tracks are set in undulating sand dunes, while others go through bustling cities and grassy plains. Random bonus items, such as turbo boost or kart repair, are scattered throughout each track, and they are always worth picking up. Overall, SuperKarts is a great kart racing game that plays similar to shareware hit Wild Wheels, only with beter graphics and detail. A must have for all kart fans! If you like the game, also check out Manic Karts, the underrated sequel to this classic.

Description: You are racing against the clock, or a computer opponent, on a regular road with cars, and driving from gas station to gas station. There are several hazards: slow moving vehicles, crashing into objects of nature (crashing takes your life), police giving speeding tickets (which adds a time penalty), and driving over the edge of canyons.
