Mario Kart Tour review
Mario Kart Tour is a mobile spin-off from the famous Mario Kart series. The game was released by Nintendo in 2019 and is available for free on Android and iOS.
Gameplay: Mobile Karts
Mario Kart is one of Nintendo's most popular series, and now it has a mobile spin-off. Mario Kart Tour is very similar to other games of the series in most aspects, and the gameplay is not an exception. As always, you get to select a character and have a set of tracks to complete. In the process, you will be able to either boost yourself or slow down the opponents. There are dozens of tracks available for you to try. There is even a multiplayer mode available now in Mario Kart Tour: the several game modes allow you to challenge friends or nearby players online.
Graphics: Same Old Style
The style of most Mario games is the same: only the graphics change a bit from game to game. Mario Kart Tour is very similar to the latest Mario Kart games. The graphics are just optimized for mobile devices and allow the game to run properly, even on the budget smartphones. It might not be as detailed as you would want it, but it is still a great pleasure to the eyes to play Mario Kart Tour. On the small screens of mobile devices, the visual imperfections are not so perceptible, and the animations are still smooth enough to enjoy the game.
Controls: Many Options
The controls are great in Mario Kart Tour as they allow all players to select a comfortable configuration of controls for themselves. You can either steer manually or use gyro handling. There is an option to enable manually. You can even turn on the auto-item feature to make it easier for you to complete tracks. For the most inexperienced players, there is even a steering assistance feature built-in.
