Thank you to GameMill Entertainment for giving us an advanced copy of Nickelodeon Kart Racers to review.
Play the new console racing game called Nickelodeon Kart Racers featuring your beloved Nickelodeon characters. Playable animated characters from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, and SpongeBob SquarePants will delight children as they choose their favorite character.
A multi-player console game features races on 24 different tracks that are all slime themed. Tracks include favorites such as Bikini Bottom, NYC sewers, Tommy Pickle’s house, and Arnold’s school.
Families can play co-op levels as a team or play up to four players on one screen to see who can take home first place. Multi-player includes Free For All, Capture the Flag, and Tag.
There is no introduction to the game play or tutorial to go through. From the home screen simply pick Grand Prix, Free Race, or Time Attack and you are off to your first race. Each race has three laps, giving you time to learn the track and earn first place.

- Patrick Star
- Sandy Cheeks
Grand Prix has 10 racers vying for first place. Go after the slime as it helps boost you. Watch out for players behind you as well as in front as they will launch items to slow you down. There are six cups to choose from in Grand Prix: Stoop Cup, Cynthia Cup, Pineapple Cup, Kraang Cup, Sewer Cup, and Glove Cup. As you level up you have the option to unlock three new cups: Remix Cup, Slime Cup, and Orange Cup.
Free Race allows you to choose your difficulty level and also choose the difficulty level of the AI. The levels can be chosen independently.

Time Attack is a race where you play by yourself. You can play multiple times to see if you can beat your time. At the end of the race each lap shows your time plus your overall time. For those who have children who get easily frustrated if they cannot be in first place this is the best race of all of them because you are the only one racing. Additionally, you do not have to worry about anyone coming up behind you and slowing you down.
Racers can play solo or team race. When racing as a team you can pick your team color: green, red, yellow, blue, or purple.
Some levels are more challenging than others. One race has arrows pointing to which side of the track to stay on. Miss five times and your race ends. One race had the last player eliminated every 18 seconds. If you are the number one player you can take a victory lap for even more slime tokens.
Each racing kart has power ups and special attacks. Use your slime tokens to upgrade your racing kart in the store.
