Controlling Mario Kart Tour is easy — your car will move forward automatically and you use the left and right sides of the touch screen to steer. I prefer advanced mode, because drifting can give you an extra speed boost.
While the names make it seem like you're playing against real people, you're actually just racing computer-controlled bots. The faster the race, the tougher your competition will be.
Multiplayer will be added to Mario Kart Tour in a future update, so for now you'll have to be satisfied beating your AI opponents.
First, you'll earn some experience points to improve your driver and kart. Increasing your driver's level will help you earn more rewards from races.
The Bonus Challenges at the end of each cup require you to use a specific driver to complete the challenge during a single lap.
