Super Mario Kart Universe More Information

Super mario kart was one of my favourite games that was released on the super nintendo. I recently came acorss Super Mario Kart Universe and I had to try it out.  Super Mario Kart Universe was developed by Tunest and was released on 03 February 2010.  There are no new characters you can race as in this hack.  In fact all the tracks remain the same but there layouts have been changed.  In some mario kart hacks the tracks and AI are very poor.  But in Super Mario Kart Universe the tracks are well designed and the AI works perfectly.

The Mario Circuit 1 track is an interesting track.  From the start you can take the left or right track which will then loop back to the start line, Is does not matter which way you go.

The Donut Plains 1 track contains some long parts of track which enabled you to build up some speed, but watch out taking the corners as some can be slightly tricky.

The Ghost Valley 1 track can be a bit tricky, you need to be careful as some parts of the track are not very wide which means you are more likely to fall off the track.

The Bowser Castle 1 is one of the easiest super mario kart tracks I have ever played, you simply need to drive around in a square and avoid the boulders which jump up and down.

The Mario Circuit 2 is the final track in the mushroom cup and can be quite tricky.  The bends are very sharp at the beginning of the track and the track is quite long.

I would highly recommend this hack of super mario kart, the tracks have been well designed the difficulty is about the same as the original game which really makes this game feel like a super mario kart game.  I would rate this game nine out of ten.

Question : I have Downloaded The ROM Hack But What Do I Do Next?
Answer : Watch this video for instructions on what to do. When you download this hack the download will contain a .ips file (Not a ROM file), This .ips file is a patch which you need to apply to the original ROM in order to be able to play the hacked game. The easiest thing to do is copy the .ips file in to the same folder as the original ROM and make sure the .ips and .rom file have the same name, for example

  • Super Mario Kart Universe.ips
  • Super Mario Kart Universe.rom

Now launch your emulator and then open the ROM and you should be able to play the hack. If the hack does not load you will need to patch the ROM file with the IPS file.

Question : How Do I Patch the ROM File To Play?
Answer : Watch this video which will show you what to do. You need to download Lunar IPS tool and run it then click on “Apply IPS Patch” then select the .ips file and click ok, then select the Rom file and the patch will then be applied. Now launch your SNES emulator and open the ROM file.
