Super Crypto Kart is the first title made by Chain Games. They aim to build an entire decentralized gaming ecosystem for skill-based game wagering. Their team is made up of very talented people from Trustswap and are looking to release their 2nd title in Q4 this year.
Where to start?
Super Crypto Kart is available for download on both Mac and Windows. Once you have downloaded the game, open it up and create an account.
After you have created an account, you need to go to your registered email to activate your account. If you cannot find the activation email, check your spam folder for it as well.
There are 2 modes in which can play from. One is online and the other is single player. I’ll be heading over to single player in this walkthrough. Before you head into the races you can also go to the tutorials by clicking on the question mark icon. It will be good to read up a little on what the items and powerups do before diving into the actual race.
If you are too lazy to go through the tutorials here are the keys you need to know before going into a race.
- Arrow keys to move
- V key to drift
- N key or Nitro
- Backspace to reset your kart
- space to use items
Once you have chosen your mode, you will be able to select one of many crypto themed karts to use. After selecting your kart, you can setup how you like your race to be. I’ll be selecting the intermediate mode with the normal race game mode. There are also 15 tracks to choose from so there is much to master.
The racing style and mechanics is similar to popular games such as Mario Kart. You collect powerups and try to get your way to the front. The extra difference is that there are Nitro bottles that you can collect on the track to give your kart an extra boost. This is indicated on the bottom right blue bars.
Single player allows you to add up to 19 AI karts so you can give yourself a good challenge if you gotten the hang of the game. The real challenge will be the online mode where you can wager and earn Chain Tokens from winning races. This requires you to connect your account with a cryptocurrency wallet such as Metamask. I will not be going through the online mode in the walkthrough.
Driving is pretty smooth but drifting a bit tricky to handle. The in-game music is a bit distracting and i prefer to have it muted. The power-ups are easy to use and nothing is super broken that can change the game right away.
Overall, a very decent game with decent graphics, an upper tier racing blockchain related game in this space. Single player is free to play so you can just chill and take your time to master the tracks. When you feel like you need a challenge you can start wagering Chain tokens at the online mode.
