There are plenty of racing games available on Android and iPhone, but Finnish developer Fingersoft believes there’s still room for one more in the mobile ecosystem.
So the company has come up with Boom Kart, a fast-paced multiplayer kart racing game that’s based on an idea we’ve seen before but which is insanely fun nonetheless.

Created in partnership with Zaibatsu Interactive, Book Karts is, as we said, a familiar concept for those who’ve played fast-paced multiplayer games before. So in theory, you race against other players and collect various items along the road that provide you with super-powers, such as rockets and other weapons to shoot your competitors.

The game, however, also allows you to upgrade, modify, and equip your vehicles with new items, with the gameplay then adapting to all the changes. The parent company promises each kart has its own unique feel, all based on the upgrades that you install.

Playing Boom Karts is as straightforward as it could be. You control your kart using touch buttons, and everything is conveniently placed on the screen, so it’s easy to fire up a rocket or do a drift to get extra power.

The good news is that everything is as intuitive as possible and the kart control is pretty good, as the dev team says it has spent plenty of time trying to get the game mechanics right. On the other hand, we shouldn’t forget this is more like arcade racing, so it should all take just a few seconds until you end up mastering your kart.

The game is already available on Android with a freeware license, though it comes with ads that are sometimes rather annoying. The parent company says it has already reduced the number of ads to focus more on the actual racing.

An iPhone version is also in the works, but for the time being, there’s no ETA as to when it could see the daylight in the App Store.
