Mario Kart: Super Circuit is a kart racing game released for the Game Boy Advance in 2001. The game is the third installment in the Mario Kart series and features the same iconic characters and gameplay that fans have come to love.

Game play

One of the standout features of Mario Kart: Super Circuit is its track design. The game features 20 tracks, with half of them being new and the other half being remakes of classic tracks from previous games. The tracks are well-designed and feature a variety of obstacles, jumps, and shortcuts, making for a fun and challenging racing experience.


The game's controls are simple and intuitive, with players using the A button to accelerate and the B button to brake or reverse. The game also features power-ups, such as mushrooms and shells, which can be used to gain an advantage over other racers. The power-ups are balanced, and their effectiveness is dependent on the player's skill and timing.


One downside of the game is its limited multiplayer options. While the game does feature local multiplayer, it requires multiple Game Boy Advance systems and game cartridges, making it difficult to play with friends. The game also lacks online multiplayer, which would have been a welcome addition.

Graphics And Sound


The graphics and sound in Mario Kart: Super Circuit are impressive for a Game Boy Advance game. The game features bright and colorful graphics, and the sound effects and music are faithful to the series' iconic sound design.


Mario Kart: Super Circuit is a fun and well-designed racing game that is a great addition to the Mario Kart series. While it may lack some of the features of later games in the series, its track design and simple controls make it a joy to play.
