Don’t be a kind and courteous driver, be an ogre
Shrek Kart for iPad : Look, there’s no way around this, no way it can’t be said, but Shrek Kart is a kart game in the style of a certain plumber. You know who I mean. That’s no bad thing, of course, because It ensures oodles of options, lively graphics, power ups a plenty and all your favourite characters from the films. That is, in fact, the starting point, because rather than just selecting a kart with its own unique characteristics and plonking Shrek into it, each of the 10+ karts has its own style and associated drive. If you want to drive as Fiona or Donkey, here’s your chance this side of a fancy dress shop. There’s plenty to tackle in single player mode with one-off races, tournaments around the various locations from the films, challenges and arena modes. If you get bored-with that then there’s Wi-Fi (six players) and Blue-tooth (two players) connectivity for head-to-head races. Not cheap, but considerably more attractive than the green hero himself.
