Introduction
Hello and welcome to my guide for DreamWorks Super Star Kartz, this a fun kart racing game similar to Mario Kart, Sonic all star racing and Madagascar Karts (almost identical to the later in fact)
Overall I think it is a good game to play and a quite enjoyable 1000. The game is only really let down by the fact there is only really 9 different racers, it just seems there are a lot of DreamWorks people missing 4 that even made it into Madagascar Kartz. Also there are only 12 different tracks which let’s face it isn’t very many.
Anyway, let’s begin; before you start take a moment to take a look at the achievements as this could help save some time. In total you will need to do a minimum of 48 cup races, 12 time trials and 36 challenges, this is assuming you win them all first time.

Step 1 – Time Trial & 50cc:
There is no right or wrong way of starting this game, but for me personally I would recommend doing the time trials first, you will have to do the first 3 tracks, then do 50cc wind cup, that will unlock the next 3 tracks so time trial again do them and then cloud cup and so on. This will give you a good idea of the controls and tracks and will unlock you Pride of Pride and King of the Swamp. It also gives you a good chance to look for the collectable DreamWorks logos on each track they are not hard to find but if you want a guide it’s Here

Step 2 – Circuit Mode 100cc, 150cc and Mirror:
Now that’s done time to start on the most time consuming part of the game, The circuits there are 50cc, 100cc, 150cc and Mirror Mode which unlocks after doing 50 100 and 150. Having done the 50cc first, now move on to 100cc. If you are finding any hard I recommend changing characters until you find one you are good with, I personally used donkey as I think his star move is the best in the game.
While doing the Cups I would recommend playing as different characters and going for the ‘Hit 3 Opponents with a single XX special move’ and making sure you win at least 1 track with each racer for the Teamwork Makes the Dream Work achievement (win a race with each character).

Step 3 – Challenge Mode:
Not that hard to do just beat all the challenges, check your achievements and the guide for ones you are missing that may be easy to unlock on challenge mode (hang on for dear wildlife and Nice is Overrated for example).

Step 4 – Mop Up
The only ones that should be left are win a race with each character and use there special moves which are easily done in quick race, any others that you may need (spaceadelic was the last one i needed) simply check the guide for details on that achievement.

 

[x360a would like to thank Rit1988 for this Road Map]



Ready, Set, Race!15
Perform a quick start. 

Very easy, count down with the 3 2 1 and on 0 (he doesn’t say the 0) hold , shouldn’t take more than a few tries to get.


Good Luck Freaks!!15
Finish a race. 

You'll get this very quickly, you'll be finishing many.

 

Feelin' Special15
Use a special move. 

Collect the stars scattered around the tracks, after getting 5 press . You don’t have to hit anyone with it, simply use it.



Hang Time15
Get 3 seconds of hang time. 

There are a lot of big jumps you can get this one on, the biggest easiest one is probably on Gallaxhar's Spaceship near the end. This is also the easiest place to get Far-Quad & Three Blind Precise.


Better Out Than In!15
Block an attack using a shield. 

Very easy, get a shield which looks like the picture not to be mixed up with the potion shield, use it by pressing then 3 shields should be spinning around you now just wait to be attacked. Will get it if you are hit with a pumpkin or a frog.


Spaceadelic15
Break an opponent's active Shield Potion with Quantonium. 

Actuality quite hard to get properly as you only receive Quantonium in a lower position in the race (around 5th+) and shields are generally awarded in 2nd or 3rd but the main problem is you rarely see computers use them. The way I got it was to plug in a 2nd controller, go into battle mode and keep getting items with the 2nd controller until you get a potion, then get Quantonium with the first controller and simply line up and use the Quantonium but bare in mind that when you use it, it moves you forward on its own so make sure you are in line otherwise you might go past and end up running out. (It can take a while to get both items but they defiantly can be got this way)


Putting the Power in Powerslide15
Perform twenty power slide boosts in a race and finish in 1st place. 

Simply slide at every opportunity, easy to do on Gallaxhar’s Spaceship as the criss cross’s near the start give you a good chance for 3 or 4 each lap on there own, power slide by holding until the wheels spark then release


Awesome in Action!15
Finish 1st place in a Circuit Race. 

Finish 1st place in any circuit race, makes sense to start on 50cc as that is the easiest.


Is that a Challenge?15
Finish 1st place in a Challenge Race. 

This will unlock for doing your first challenge one and winning. The more challenges unlock the more DreamWorks Animation Logos you obtain. You have to do them all for Jungle Jammin' anyway.


Fearsome15
Perform a fifteen second Drift. 

Actuality quite hard to do normally as there are no turns in any track long enough to do it on, the way I done it is on the Dragon Island track, simply go around the circle around the dragon breathing fire twice in a drift (holding ) until the achievement pops up. This can be done in time trial so you do not have to worry about getting hit or bashed into.


Show Off15
Cross the finish line in 1st place while performing a special move. 

Collect 5 stars like before and simply save them up until you are on the last lap and near the finish line then simply press just before you cross it.


Hold On for Dear Wildlife15
Directly hit an opponent with a thrown banana. 

Probably easiest to get on the challenge mode ‘Precision Races’ as the only two items you get are bananas and pumpkin bombs. When you get a banana hold forward and press


Fear My Roar15
Block 3 attacks while maintaining 1st place. (2) 

Not that easy on a normal race, keeping hold of first place is easy but the computers rarely seem to attack you so the best way to get this is on challenge mode ‘Strategic Races’ as the only two weapons you get are shield potions and frog balloons (which home in on you so they can actuality hit you) so get into first and just keep using the shield potions. Chances are you will get this by the time you have done all 6 Strategic Race challenges so i wouldn’t bother retrying any unless you don’t get it after finishing all 6. (even though it is a normal shield in the icon and not a potion, poitions do still work)


Three Blind Precise15
Land a triple stunt. 

See Far-Quad.


Far-Quad20
Land a quadruple stunt. 

Very easy to get on Gallaxhar’s Spaceship, may have to be 150cc or 100cc. The big jump at the end of the track is the one to do it on, just before the finish line there is a choice of 3 paths, take the middle one for the big ramp, simply jump and keep pressing it will have to be done on one of the first two laps as the 3rd you will cross the line and end the race before landing if on 150cc.


Nice is Overrated15
Spin out 2 karts with 1 pumpkin bomb. 

Took me a while to get this one, go on challenge mode ‘Precision Races’ because you only get pumpkins and bananas go on the track Gallaxhar’s Spaceship start grab the weapon box on the left right near the start go forward over the hill until on flat ground again and shoot into the pack of racers. If you don’t get it then its best to simply restart and try again as this way they are all together. Can also be done with 3 players in battle mode if you cannot get it this way.


Unconquerable15
Hit 3 opponents with a single set of viking shields. 

Will more than likely be unlocked in normal play, simply win all 3 laps in a circuit.


Leader of the Tribe15
Finish each lap of a Circuit or Quick Race track in 1st place. 

Unlocked when you do your first time trial.


Pride of the Pride15
Set a personal best time on any time trial course. 

Unlocked when you win your first circuit mode cup, you don’t have to win all 3 tracks simply win by points.


The Party's Here15
Receive a Golden Onion Trophy. 

See "Pure Lunacy" achievement description.


Head in the Clouds15
Finish The Cloud Cup in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place. 

See "Pure Lunacy" achievement description.



Super Star15
Finish The Sun Cup in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place. 

See "Pure Lunacy" achievement description.


Wind Tunnel15
Finish The Wind Cup in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place. 

Head in the Clouds, Super Star, Wind Tunnel and Pure Lunacy will all be unlocked when you win each of the cups for the first time, can be in 50cc, 100cc or 150cc but 50cc should probably be done first simply because it is easiest.


Pure Lunacy15
Finish The Moon Cup in 1st, 2nd or 3rd place. 

There are 36 challenges in total, so finish 18 of them to unlock this achievement, more challenges unlock when you receive more DreamWorks Animation Logos and by beating challenges.


Halfway There!15
Finish 50% of Challenge Races. (1P) 

There are 76 DreamWorks Animation Logos and they are awarded for several things, winning each circuit cup in each of the CCs and Mirror Mode, beating each challenge, setting a time in each time trail track and there are some hidden around the tracks. Simply get 38 of them and it unlocks. Guide for harder to find logo's Here.


Crescent Moon15
Collect 50% of the DreamWorks Animation Logos. (1P) 

There are 76 DreamWorks Animation Logos and they are awarded for several things, winning each circuit cup in each of the CCs and Mirror Mode, beating each challenge, setting a time in each time trail track and there are some hidden around the tracks. Simply get 38 of them and it unlocks. Guide for harder to find logo's Here.


King of the Swamp15
Set a personal best time on every time trial course. 

Probably worth doing this first as it gives you a good idea of the tracks this is also a good time to look for the hidden Dreamwork logo’s as there is no time limit. You do not have to get a good time in each track simply record one.


House of Straw15
Complete all 4 Circuits at 50cc. 

See "House of Bricks" achievement description.


House of Sticks15
Complete all 4 Circuits at 100cc. 

See "House of Bricks" achievement description.


House of Bricks15
Complete all 4 Circuits at 150cc. 

As described, complete all 4 circuits and it will unlock, if you are struggling try a few difference characters and find one that suits you, i personally used donkey as I like his star power move because you can use it and it stays with you until his dronkeys have all attacked and in that time you can collect another 5 stars and activate it straight away. Also if you have not done it might be worth doing the time trails first to give you a better idea of the tracks.


Magic Mirror15
Complete all 4 Circuits in Mirror mode. 

Mirror mode is unlocked when you complete all 4 cups in 50cc, 100cc and 150cc. Apart from the tracks being mirrored it is probably easier than 150cc.


Photo Finish15
Hit 3 opponents with a single Alex special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Alex’s special move is Mane Man – Alex causes other races to spin out by pouncing on their karts. This one is slightly harder to hit 3 people with than some others, how his star move works is you press and he stands on top of his kart and when other racers are in range you press again and he will jump into that kart and make it spin out. So the best thing to do is drop back into a lower position and wait until you are near a load of them and try it then. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


Night Fury15
Hit 3 opponents at once with a single Toothless special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Toothless’s special move is Night Fury Blast - you press and he starts to fly and gain speed then near the end of the flight where he will fire the fireball which can hurt many racers as long as it hits them. So the best thing to do is drop back into a lower position and wait until you are near a load of them and try it then. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


Do The Roar15
Hit 3 opponents at once with a single Shrek special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Shrek’s special move is Fear my Roar – he stands on his kart and roars, a huge blast goes forward and hits all the racers in front, one of the easiest to hit 3 with you just have to do it on a straight stretch as if you are turning a corner you will miss every one. So the best thing to do is drop back into a lower position and wait until you are near a load of them and try it then. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


Viking Hero15
Hit 3 opponents with a single Hiccup special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Hiccup’s special move is Viking Warrior – he pulls out a crossbow which you can attack with by pressing be repeatedly for a period of time, one of the easiest to hit 3 with. The best thing to do is drop back into a lower position and wait until you are near a load of them and try it then. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


I Get a Kick Outta You15
Hit 3 opponents with a single Donkey special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Donkey’s special move is donkey’s little helpers – he calls in his dronkey babies in that fly around above his head until they attack and leave, one of the best star powers by far, and one of the easiest to hit 3 racers with. All you have to do is use it then simple wait until they have all attacked 3 different people, dropping back may help. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


Who Says a Penguin Can't Fly?25
Hit 3 opponents with a single Skipper special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Skipper’s special move is Operation Megaphone – it is similar to shreks roar move but with a smaller radius although it can be used 6 times during one move if you keep pressing making it one of the easiest to hit 3 karts with. Dropping back may help. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


True Love's Kiss25
Hit 3 opponents with a single Fiona special move. 

See Photo Finish above as Fiona’s move works in exactly the same way.

Oozing Authority!25
Hit 3 opponents with a single B.O.B. special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Bob’s special move is Insatiable Appetite – He pulls items out of his body and throws them forward he generally pulls out pumpkins and frogs if you keep pressing making it one of the easiest to hit 3 karts with. Dropping back may help as if you are in first he will pull out boosts which are no use. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


I Earned these Stripes!25
Hit 3 opponents with a single Marty special move. 

To get a special move, simply collect 5 stars that are scattered around the track, then press to use it. Marty’s special move is Herd Alert – He picks up his kart and gallops along for a short time going faster and invincible making his ‘attack’ for this move simple banging into other racers. This is slightly harder than some but still not that hard, his turning changes slightly and doesn’t gain a lot of speed so might take a few tries Dropping back and waiting until you are behind a nice group of racers will help. It can be unlocked in circuit mode, quick race or the star collectible race challenge.


Friend in the End25
Unlock all characters. 

You will unlock this the same time as Magic Mirror, the characters are unlocked for winning the circuits in 50cc, 100cc, 150cc and Mirror Mode.


Happily Ever Ogre25
Perform every character's special move. (1P) 

To get this you have to use (not hit just use) every racers special move that includes the secrete characters that are unlocked after beating all the circuits in 50cc, 100cc, 150cc and mirror mode. There are only 3 characters that do not have their own individual achievements related to hitting 3 racers with their special move so if it didn’t unlock first check you have all character related achievements and then try using the bottom 3 secret ones again.


Jungle Jammin'85
Finish all Challenge Races. (1P) 

There are 36 challenges in total, so finish them to unlock this achievement more challenges unlock when you receive more DreamWorks Animation Logos and by beating challenges.


Teamwork Makes the Dream Work25
Win a race in 1st place as each character in Circuit or Quick Race. (1P) 

Can be done in circuit or quick race, has to be done with all 12 racers (including the 3 secret ones) can be made quicker by using each different character for different circuit cups. And when you unlock the secret ones combine using their special move with a quick race and just make sure you win.


I'm the Awe in Awesome!85
Finish all tracks in 1st place. (1P) 

This will more than likely be unlocked by the time you beat all the CC’s and Mirror Mode, there are only 12 tracks and each will have to be raced on minimum of 4 times. it unlocks just after winning the last track you need to come first on not when you finish the entire citcuit. If it does not unlock they can be done in quick race as well so you can keep track of which ones you win if you want to but it should be easy enough.


On the Prowl25
Cross the finish line in 1st place while performing a Drift Boost. 

Better to do on some tracks than others, easiest when the finish line is on a curve as you can boost around easier, a good track to do it in is Far Far Away for this reason but there are many others.


Moon Boy's Mission85
Collect all of the DreamWorks Animation Logos. (1P) 

There are 76 DreamWorks Animation Logos and they are awarded for several things, winning each circuit cup in each of the CCs and Mirror Mode, beating each challenge, setting a time in each time trail track and there are some hidden around the tracks. Simply collect them and it unlocks. If you have won all the cups, done all the challenges time trails and still missing some (there is a total on the main screen) The best way to check what ones you need is go on time trail, pick a track, pick a racer start the race and on the screen where it says press a to continue (start of race screen) there are 2 DreamWorks logos if they are both white you have both and should quit out and load up the next track. if one is faded out then you need it in the track so drive around looking for it thats why time trial is best becuase you do not need to worry about any other racers or time limits There is no quicker way of seeing if you have the collectable which is a pain.
