Mario Kart: Double Dash continues to bring fun kart-driving challenges to enjoy. This game was available by Nintendo EAD, and it is the fourth version of the Mario Kart series. The game was released in four regions in November 2003.
The new feature compared to the previous is that it allows two characters to use the same cart. In which, one character will take on the driving. The other is responsible for using collected items on the way. There are 20 characters, they are divided into 10 different pairs for players to use. In particular, each pair will have different special equipment to use. For example, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong own Giant Banana, Princess Daisy, and Peach own Hearts. Or Petey Piranha and King Boo have the ability to use all the special items (except for Birdo’s Pink Egg and Luigi’s Green Fireball). Besides, the game also offers 21 types of karts with different specifications for players to explore.
Mario Kart: Double Dash brings four game modes as Versus, Time Attack, Grand Fix and Battle. In which, some can play at a multiplayer challenge and others can only be explored at a single challenge. Firstly, Versus brings a multiplayer challenge, it allows 3 players to participate. And players can customize the number of items, laps to complete in a match. In particular, this mode also allows a maximum of 15 players when using LAN. Time Attack offers a single challenge. It requires players to complete 16 tracks in the shortest time to create high achievements.
Grand Fix is built according to different tournaments to conquer. A tournament that allows 6 to 7 teams to participate. In addition, this game has three levels (equivalent to three separate engine types) to explore. The first is 50 cc, the second is 100 cc and the most complex level is 150 cc. Note, 50 CC and 100 CC bring the race with normal competition pace for players to get acquainted with the game. And 150 cc has the fast-paced races and track area larger than the first two levels. Therefore, players will have to have a good concentration to complete the races at this level. There are 16 tracks, and they are divided into four tournaments to explore (Star, Mushroom, Special, and Flower).
Battle has similar content to Versus, it also allows multiple players to participate in the competition (a maximum of 15). However, this game has two unique challenges, Bob-ombs and Shine Sprite. In Shine Sprite, the player has to capture Shine Sprite. The owner with the longest time will win. Bob-ombs requires the player to complete the races by bombing each other to achieve the maximum score.
