Safari Kart - 3D Kart Racing! [Beta!]

Safari Kart is an brand new 3D racing game coming for mobile devices!
The game features classic kart racing goodness for all ages.

UPDATE: New gameplay video below!
As we get closer to release, we are launching a Beta test early April. If you have an iOS device and want to help us out, signup to the Beta here: https://goo.gl/forms/nGoek1gjxdSR9qs42



Safari Kart will be released in Summer 2017 for iPhone and iPad. Android etc. will follow later.

-Choose from eight colorful characters
-Compete in 12 unique tracks
-Drift around corners and use power-ups!
-Three difficulty levels from novice to kart experts
-Premium game with no in-game ads or extra purchases!
My motivation was from the beginning to create that classic feeling Kart experience for a mobile device. I wanted something where the cars feel physical, while still being fun to drive. Also I wanted the characters to be something people could pick their favourites from. So far in closed test sessions people have really enjoyed it. Hopefully in Summer you will too!

Let me know what you think!

I like the looks of this and want to grab it now! Oh well, gotta wait... I like the way the characters look pissed at each other as they go by! Summer's a way off though....😬

Thanks There is still a quite time for Summer. But for me it is a relief as there is still a lot to do If you want to get playing before that, follow this thread (or on FB/Twitter via website above). We will have a closed beta this or next month. More on that later.

I believe so We have done quite extensive testing with different people. Most are able to pick up the game immediately. You turn by pressing the bottom corners of the screens. Right goes right, left goes left. Virtual-analog sticks etc didn't feel as good. Kart games (as I experienced them) were more digital in control schemes than analog. Throttle is always on. You have the option to break, but this often not required. It is more useful to drift around the more difficult corners.
