Review: supra mayro kratt
The indie community is a vibrant one, bringing all sorts of new ideas and art styles to the gaming table. Indeed, some of the best games i’ve played have been indie games, from the humble RPG Maker project to the now high and mighty Minecraft. While projects like these may be fun to play, truly innovative titles are few and far between. And up until now I had thought I would never find an indie game so crisp – so monumentally groundbreaking – that I would eat my words and accept indie games as the ultimate form of gaming medium.
Because when I laid eyes on supra mayro kratt, I knew I had found an instant classic.
supra mayro kratt is a deceptively simple game. At its core, it is a traditional kart racer: players choose from a number of characters to race against their opponents on wacky, brilliantly-detailed tracks themed after the award-winning supra mayro franchise. Players may choose from a wide and varied roster of fan favorites to play as, including the titular mayro, his earnest brother luggy, and the ever-eager joshy the dinosaur.
The art style in supra mayro kratt draws inspiration from its core franchise, with gorgeous backdrops and familiar and iconic elements of the mayro universe, such as mushroom houses and grinning trees. While some naysayers may say that the graphics are more classic than groundbreaking, this conservative approach ensures that the visuals are presented to the player in the most efficient and artistic way possible, without breaking the mold that we’ve come to know and love from the series’ canon. And with smooth guitar solos of your favorite mayro songs, you’re sure to smile in delight at the game’s unified aesthetic.
But perhaps the most outstanding aspect of this game is its accessibility. Players move with the WASD keys and brake with the Spacebar. There’s no pesky item boxes to slow you down, or any sort of drifting nonsense to complicate the matter. No sir, the name of the game here is simplicity and ease of mind. You’ll never have to worry about things like DLC, installation times, or even unnecessary challenge: Everything is catered towards you, the player. And just in case things get out of hand, there’s even a snap-to-road feature available for unlucky players who happen to fall off the track. Now that’s really thinking of the player. Well done, developers!
If you’re a gamer worth his or her salt, there is absolutely no reason for you to pass up one of this generation’s greatest and most original racing games. It may very well be the single greatest game to grace 2012, and is most certainly a contender for Indie Game of The Year. You owe it to yourself to give supra mayro kratt a run around the block. Best of all, it’s completely free to play, and only requires a simple plug-in. Give it a try here!
Don’t miss this diamond in the rough!
