Nowadays 3D racing games are all around us. You can play 3D car racing games on consoles (like Play Station, Nintendo or XBox), PCs, small portable game devices, smart phones, but also online.
Browsing around I’ve found one 3D race game that I really like. I’m playing the game on Free-CarGames.com, which is one of this blog’s partners. I do recommend you to have a look on this nice car game portal, you’ll find some good car games.
The game I’m talking about is Jungle Kart Island and is a 3D flash game. The game has a beautiful 3D feeling and is suitable for kids too. The graphic is not the best I ever saw, but it is really nice for an online car game. It is friendly, colorful and full of life. The game play is simple and, as the title say, is about a kart which you have to drive on a circuit. The circuit is placed on a jungle and isolated on an island.
The game offers you 2 different play modes: race and trial. In race mode you will race against 7 opponents and the main purpose is to finish on the first position. In trial mode you will be by yourself and the only thing to beat is the clock. You’ll have to be as fast as you can. Also, the game offers you a demo so you can see all the features and this helps you to see all the tools, like: speedometer, nitro-meter, the lap you are at and so on.
Before going into the 3D kart race game you’ll have to choose a character who’ll drive your kart. You can choose between 8 characters: Panther Boy, Lost Yeti, King Rock, The Lizard, Captain Woodchuck, The Masked Lemur, Wyld Boar or Tigro. None of this characters have a special power so all the driving skills are up to you.
What I really like about the Jungle Kart Island is the smooth driving and the good response of the kart. Also the 3D feeling is quite nice and the fact that your kart can be damaged when you crash. Another positive point is that you can change the view of the game: you can see the hole kart from behind, you can see the wheel and the front of the kart or you can see the kart from above.
A big minus is the fact that when you are in the race you don’t have a map so you can’t see where your opponents are. The other minus I’ve notice is that you don’t have a rear mirror to see the incoming racers. Maybe the biggest minus of the game is the fact that has only 1 circuit and you can’t unlock another one.
As controls: you’ll play the game using the arrows for left/right and accelerate/brake, space bar for nitro and return key (enter key) for changing the view.
My conclusion is that Jungle Kart Island is a nice 3D racing online game and it’s a nice way to relax for 10-15 minutes. It is friendly and is not violent, so can be played by small kids too.
