However, you can participate in a ranking with players from around the world, including people you know, and find out who is the best. But the item only becomes visible after accumulating a few points and participating in a certain number of tests.
According to the specialized website Fanbyte, this is only possible after completing the Yoshi Cup during the season in New York. Friends can be added to the game list through their Nintendo Account. Or by linking your Facebook or Twitter accounts and looking for users who are also playing.
Tips for playing Mario Kart Tour
For those who have already played the Mario Kart console version you will probably feel familiar with the game. The mobile edition, of course, has some differences, such as the fact that it is not possible to control the speed of the car, which is automatic.
Certain tricks and tips can help you earn more points and purchase items more easily. Check out the list below to get ahead.
Set the game mode you prefer
The user can choose how they prefer to play. Unlike the video game version, the car doesn't get off track and the game mode may seem too robotic or simple.
However, in the game settings you can select and match how to make the races more challenging. For that, make the way Settings Menu. In Control Method, enable or disable the options of Manual skidding and Smart driving (automatic) if you want.
There is also the possibility to enable or disable Automatic Items. The recursion causes the collected objects to be automatically launched on the track when the car goes through a new box. Finally, you can take advantage of the phone's gyroscope and use the Motion control, which drives the vehicle by tilting the device.
Boost from the start
To literally get out in front of other cars, always use the boost acceleration at the start. To do this, tap the screen and hold from 2 on the countdown. When the race begins, release the display and watch your kart go off.
But be aware: if you happen to hold the screen ahead of time, the car should skid and not accelerate as desired.
To boost jumps or glider flights, touch the screen while in the air. In addition to giving more points during the race, it can make all the difference in your character's placement.
This is because it allows you to interact with the scenery, such as balloons or the dinosaur's body and extend the flight or extend the jump, arriving ahead of competitors.
Make the perfect match
In Mario Kart Tour, selecting the right character, car and glider for each track can make a total difference in your performance. For example, choosing Toad and its items for the track with the doll's name will probably do better than the others.
To do this, you need to be lucky enough to have all these items unlocked. To purchase new items, keep in mind that you have to collect (or buy) rubies and use them to fire pipes that draw characters, automobiles, and gliders.
Clean the screen ink
You may fall into the ambush of having octopus paint thrown on your helmet during the race. As a result, your vision is partially compromised for some time, making it difficult to see other obstacles and rivals.
What few know is that it is possible to clean the canvas by swiping the ink as if rubbing it. That simple.
