When you think of a Mario driving game, you usually expect to see him zooming around in a high-powered go-kart, right? Well, in this new Mario driving adventure – he races in a super-speedy shopping cart! Mario Cart 3D is a fun online racing game where you control Mario (the feisty Italian carpenter and gaming legend) in shopping-cart races against other characters from the Mario game world. Compete on four difficult race tracks, and outwit your colorful opponents with slick driving skills, outrageous overtaking, and speedy cornering.
This fast-paced racing activity will truly have you on the edge of your seat, as you battle to take the Checkered Flag against other classic Mario characters such as Luigi, Wario and Waluigi. You’ll need quick reactions to succeed, as your shopping cart vehicle moves at an awesome speed. You’ll also need a steady hand, as the controls are quite sensitive – meaning the cart can be difficult to control. Can you steer your wacky vehicle to victory, and become the Ultimate Mario Cart Champion? Mamma Mia, let’s hope so!
How to Play: There are 3 different Game Modes to choose from – Career, Single Race & Time Trial. In career Mode, there are 4 races to complete. You start off in Race 1, and have to unlock each track by winning the previous one. In Single Race Mode – you take part in a once-off race on a track of your choice. In each of these Modes, you race as Mario. The races consist 3 laps of the track, against 3 other drivers – Luigi (green), Wario (yellow), and Waluigi (purple). In Time Trial Mode, you compete against yourself (Mario) to record your fastest 3-lap time. To control your racing cart, use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard. Up Arrow = Accelerate; Down Arrow = Brake / Reverse; Left and Right Arrows = Steer. Try to steer your cart onto the Mario Mushrooms that are in certain positions on the track. These give you a super speed boost. Try to avoid Bananas – as they slow you down, and cause your cart to skid on the track.
