The cartridge for Kart Fighter. As you can see, it is different from any official NES game, and looks like an SNES cart.

Kart Fighter is a very "rare" game, in the sense that it is 100% original. Aside from the fact that the programmers broke a copyright law by using licensed Nintendo characters, the game is original. The stages in which you fight in are rather pretty for a pirated game, and the concept is good. Some believe this game was the inspiration for the legitimate Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64.

The sprites in the game are glitchy at times, and flickering is VERY common, especially when a character is defeated. Putting it's flaws aside, these were some very creative pirates.

Gameplay and ControlEdit

The Gameplay in Kart Fighter is very much like Street Fighter, or Mortal Kombat. It's a linear game, and there is no paralax scrolling. The stage scrolls, but, it's only a second loop of the first image. The stages in Kart Fighter all have something to do with Super Mario World, a licensed game on the SNES. The opponent always come in the same order:

1) Nokonoko (Koopa Troopa)

2) Luigi (Luigi)

3) Kinopio (Toad)

4) Yossy (Yoshi)

5) Mari (Mario)

6) Donkey (DK)

7) Peach (Princess Toadstool)

8) Koopa (Bowser)

If the player chooses to play as Nokonoko, the opponent lineup is switches, and Nokonoko is no longer a fightable opponent.

The control in Kart Fighter is OK. It's not great, but it's better than some pirated games. Your character will jump at random, and other times he won't move. Although, this can be expected in a pirated game. The characters jerk about oddly, and the bottom half of the character sometimes glitches up.
