-Online: 1/12 (15)

Introduction


This game is one of the easier arcade games to complete. You can do so in just one sitting. Put the difficulty and time limit options to very easy when you start. Choose automatic so that all you have to worry about is turning. You will essentially play 3 tracks, finding sort of a different collectible in each. Afterwards you just need to do some of the extra modes. A few other random achievements exist as well, but all are very easy and not time consuming.

Step 1: Arcade Mode

There are a few things you will need to accomplish here. One is to win once in first place in each of the circuits. There are only 3. Inside each circuit is a type of collectible. See the guide for more details about that. Once you're done with those, it's time to move on already.

Step 2: Extra Modes


There are 4 modes you will need to jump into that are in the Extras menu. Complete 1 challenge, 1 time trial, 1 survival, and 1 karaoke.

Step 3: Finish anything remaining

If you still have anything left, finish it. Your last achievement will probably be hitting cones. Start a beginner circuit and hit 4 cones, then hit . Use to rewind, and continue to do it until you get the achievement. If you run out of rewinds you will need to start the race over.

Conclusion

Really easy game, takes hardly any time at all. There only might be a few achievements that take you more than a couple tries.

Thanks Sponge, but I did make a video as well but I figured it would be overkill Telling someone to turn around and drive backwards seemed easy enough.

Nice to see some appreciation for effort made. Was my first and only guide to date. Then I come on here to see someone actually made another guide. I like the term you haters use 'half assed'. It was not 'half assed' so please, have a little consideration and thought before making comments about other peoples time and effort before sticking the proverbial knife in. Thanks

PS - This is a nice guide, and yes, it is better than mine. (See how easy that was)

Excellent game with easy achievements. Didn't use the achievement guide here to get 100%, but good tutorial anyways.
