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.
Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

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.
