Mario Kart Tour is an awesome racing game from Nintendo. Each player will choose a character to represent them throughout the course of the game. All of these characters stem from Nintendo’s game franchises, including Super Mario, Animal Crossing, Splatoon, and even Zelda! Players can collect power ups along the way, attack other racers, all while speeding along to win the race.  


To set up the game, each player will log in to the game. Everyone will then choose a color or a character to represent them throughout the course of the race. Once every player has chosen their character, the game is ready to begin. 


During the game, players will race against one another to see who will win the race. Throughout the game the players are able to use powerups and items to help them take down other characters or increase their speed. The players will automatically go a certain speed, but using the controls on the pc or phone, the players are able to accelerate however fast they wish to go.  

Players must be strategic in their racing strategies. Each character has powerups that the players may be able to use throughout the course of the game. The players are able to attack others, make them slide across the track, or bump them off the track, causing them to reset their location on the map.  


The game comes to an end when all of the players cross the finish line. The first player to cross the line, wins the game, and everyone else is placed depending on the order in which they cross.
