Review

Of the same ilk as cartoon racing games like Crash Team Racing, Mario Karts, and Sonic and Sega All Stars, Tiki Karts 3D is a more low key version available for free from the Google Play Store. It is a decent game, but could do with improvement.

The graphics in this game look great. Everything is in 3D, and you are able to view the race from different perspectives - zoomed out, zoomed in or first person mode. It can be a bit tricky to switch while playing, so it is best to find one that you like and then stick with it.

At the beginning of the game you have the choice of three characters and karts; there are an additional five to unlock as you progress through the game.

Which character you play does not affect gameplay, but each kart has a different difficulty depending on their specs. The first three are easy, wild, and crazy.

You play against five computer players, picking up pineapples along the track to collect boosts. These boosts include rockets, land mines, fireballs, oil slicks, tar, speed boosts, and springs. You can play these by tapping the 'select' button on the right of the screen. In my opinion, there are too many pineapples to pick up. There is not enough of a gap between them to make it enough of a challenge.

The real challenge comes with the steering, which is extremely sensitive. There are two ways to control the kart: by tilting the tablet, or sliding a bar on the screen. Tilting is obviously are more visceral experience, but can be frustrating. On my first attempt, the kart kept doing a 180 turn so I was going in the wrong direction half the time.

I then discovered a sensitivity bar on the settings page. It had been at medium, but by changing it down to its lowest setting, that seemed to solve the problem.

There are three tracks to play on in a race, and your overall rank is based on the points you earn from your position in all three.

You then get shown your stats and overall score, which earns you coins. These coins can be used to buy power-ups, but there is little point seeing as how you get all these boosts by collecting pineapples in the game.

One thing I would have liked to see in the game is a multiplayer mode where you can compete against people online.

Since it is free to download, it is definitely worth playing, but won't be as enthralling as other racing games.
