MULTIPLAYER: VERSUS THE WORLD!
Thanks to the cross-plateform feature, players can overtake their friends simultaneously all around the world, indifferently on iOs, Android, PC and Mac. GARFIELD KART, the first racing game without boundaries!
On the track, several bonuses are available (8 different bonuses) and have to be picked up in order to get rid of the other pilots, or to protect themselves from them. Throw pies to stop the opponents, use the lasagna booster to drive faster or a spring to reach some hidden passages: everything must be used between two skids to finish first.
The players can select a pilot and a kart according to their driving style. Each of the eight protagonists and the eight karts own specific features: acceleration, maximum speed and vehicle maneuverability. Accessories are also available to custom pilots and vehicles. Many combinations are possible!
The hats and helmets bring special abilities to the pilots, such as the chef’s hat that increases the speed of the pies that are thrown at the opponents. The spoilers make it possible to modify the kart’s features. At the beginning of the race, different Boosts must be chosen. The Boosts bring significant advantages to steal the victory from the opponents (faster start, two trials to win the race,…). It is up to the player to make the right choices to get ready before the beginning of the race.
“Garfield Kart” includes four different game modes according to the desired type of challenge. The “Single Race” mode, perfect for a quick game, the “Grand Prix” mode to race on the sixteen circuits, the “Time Trial” where the goal is to reach the reference time and the “Challenge of the Day” which proposes a challenge every day.
“Garfield Kart Fast & Furry” is available since November 20, 2014 on iOS and Android in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
