Official description
A collection of Super Mario characters, including Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, Bowser and Donkey Kong Jr., are out to win the Super Mario Kart championship. Using Mode 7 scalling, the first true kart game on the SNES has you collecting coins to boost your speed while using shells and bananas to stop others on the track.

Comment
One of the best racing games on the SNES. Has drift out technology built in. All round good game and must have for SNES.

No other racing game, not even Mario Kart 64, has come close to Super Mario Kart in terms of pure gameplay, fun, challenge, and longevity. The one-player game gave us a variety of courses that become increasingly more difficult the farther you progress. Track obstacles include ice, deep water, oil slicks, thwomps, and even areas where you can fall off the edge! And let's not forget how you could pick up and use various weapons to knock out the other racers, and that they could do that to you, too!
The two-player battle mode, in which players try to knock each other's balloons off, is probably the single best two-player game ever made. Mario Kart also has excellent play control and high speed Mode 7 graphics.
