KartRider Rush+ Guide - Tips for new racers

Posted by Campbell Bird on May 18th, 2020

KartRider Rush+ continues to be a surprisingly refreshing and fun kart racer that's entirely free-to-play. The main reason for this is just how high its skill ceiling is. Check out the video above if you're curious to know what top level play looks like.

In case you're looking to dive in (or already have) and are looking for tips to be a better racer, take a look at some of these tips and strategies to up your game instantly.

KartRider Rush+ might be good, actually?

It's hard to find good racing games on mobile. Most of them are free-to-play, and free-to-play racers generally suck. Even Nintendo couldn't put together a competent Mario Kart game, opting instead for a weird score chaser that resembles--but feels nothing like--actual Mario Kart.

So, when Nexon released KartRider Rush+ earlier this week, I had low expectations, but I decided to boot it up and try it out anyway. I played a few races, and then I played some more. Then I joined a racing club, found myself friending people, and racing even more. Before I knew it, my week was consumed with playing KartRider Rush+ because--somehow--it has managed to create a free-to-play racing experience that actually feels good.

This multiplayer game looks nice and expensive, but is just a sort of soulless Clash Royale clone.

No one does mindless hack and slash quite like a Musou game. What's more fun than single-handedly chopping your way through hundreds of enemies? Now, for the first time ever, that unrivaled experience goes mobile with Dynasty Warriors: Unleashed. It's the Dynasty Warriors you know and love, with the same over-the-top action, but this time it's been designed with touch controls in mind.

The game will have a social features to let you trade weapons and armor with your friends, join Guilds, and play in player-versus-environment challenges.

Nexon Races onto iOS in KartRider Rush

Posted by Blake Grundman on March 16th, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Going back through the annals of video game history, it is hard to remember a time where racing titles were not dominating the landscape.  Franchises like Gran Turismo, Mario Kart and even NASCAR have gone on to sell tens of millions of copies worldwide, but what if that were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg?  Though you may not be familiar with the franchise if you are not living in Asia, Nexon has a driving franchise that scoffs at the idea of tens of millions of participants, instead opting to set their sights on hundreds of millions of players.

To date, their CrazyRacing KartRider series has managed to snag the attention of at least thirty percent of the South Korean population at one time or another, and over 230 million gamers to date.  With a track record like that it is a wonder that they have not found a way to make the KartRider franchise show up on the iOS.  However, this issue was recently remedied with their release of KartRider Rush, which hit the App Store late this week.

KartRider Rush will be following Nexon's traditional development strategy of freemium game design.  Your base game download will be absolutely free, but in order to get the entire game experience players will need to shell out $1.99 for each add-on pack which consists of a new car, playable character, and two new tracks.  Nexon calls these downloads "gameplay enhancements,"

but ultimately the decision to purchase this additional content is left to the consumer.

It will be interesting to see whether this grand experiment works out for the publisher, given their extensive back library of freemium releases just waiting to be tapped into, but if you are a fan of free games, there is plenty to be excited about.  So take it out for a test spin and let us know what you think of it in the comments.
