Red Bull Kart Fighter World Tour is a Windows Phone game that puts you behind the wheel of racing karts to compete in the global kart racing circuit. It's a fast paced racing game that offers unique racing venues in eighteen countries, has over thirty achievements to earn and a ton of races to win.
Red Bull Kart also has two game modes, upgradeable karts, a handful of control options, and great graphics. If you like racing games Red Bull Kart Fighter World Tour is a worthy addition to your Windows Phone gaming library.
From Red Bull's main menu you can choose your gaming mode, view the help section, access the control settings and mute the game sounds. Game modes include:
Challenge Mode: Compete against up to six of your friends in a pass and play time trial. Choose your track and race for the best time. When you pass your Windows Phone to your friend, they race against a ghost/shadow image of your car to see if they can beat your time.
World Tour Mode: Compete on the global race circuit to see how well you can place in each event. Each country has three race tracks to compete on with a practice mode for each. As you compete, the better you finish the more credits you earn that can be used to unlock kart upgrades. There are a 162 races to win in this mode.
The World Tour Mode's practice race will generate a ghost racer that will reflect your previous lap pace, giving you something to race against. Each race mode offers you the choice of three kart styles that reflect the difficulty level (easy, medium and hard). As you earn race credits you can unlock special features and custom colors for each kart.
On screen displays are fairly universal with a course map, lap number, lap times, race position and speed displayed on the left and/or right side of the screen.
Red Bull Kart Fighter World Tour offers your a few options on kart controls. You have:
Auto Steer: You control the gas and breaks while the kart automatically steers its way through the course. Accelerator controls line the right side of the screen. Sounds too easy but if you accelerate too much into a turn, you'll crash into a wall.
Auto Throttle: You control the steering and brakes while the kart takes care of the throttle. Controls line the bottom with steering arrows on the either side of a large brake pedal.
Full Manual: You control everything. Controls line the bottom of the screen to allow you to take charge of the steering, braking and throttle.
Each control mode has it's own set of challenges with Full Manual being the most challenging of the three. You also have the option to turn on/off a directional arrow that can help guide you through each track. The controls are responsive and laid out nice but it would have been nice to have seen tilt controls for steering come into play.
In just playing Red Bull Kart Fighter World Tour for a short time, it comes across as a very entertaining, challenging, well animated racing game for our Windows Phone. It may have one of the longest game titles in the Windows Phone Store but by no means is it short on entertainment value.
Red Bull Kart Fighter World Tour is a free game for your Windows Phone and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Store.
