Nicktoons Racing is, as its name suggests, a racing video game starring characters from various Nicktoons. The game was first developed and released for the Game Boy Color in 1999, while versions for different platforms were released in subsequent years. Nearly all versions were developed by Software Creations, with the exception of the Game Boy Advance version, which was developed by Firemint, and the arcade version, which was developed by Chicago Gaming. It is styled after other kart racers such as the Mario Kart series.

Plot

Various Nickelodeon characters each receive a letter invitation to compete in a Grand Prix for the top prize, the Krusty Krab Big Bun Award. The host of the competition, also the individual who sent the invitations, is an unknown, unseen driver of a sleek, black car with a tinted dome window simply dubbed as the Mystery Rider, which the participating racers are challenged to beat, as well as each other.

Gameplay

Nicktoons Racing focuses on engaging players in go-kart racing on various Nicktoon-themed tracks, similar to the Mario Kart line of games. The game features a wide selection of playable characters from various Nicktoons, including characters from Rugrats, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, The Wild Thornberrys, The Angry Beavers, CatDog, The Ren & Stimpy Show, Hey Arnold! and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Reception

The PlayStation game was not reviewed on IGN, while the Game Boy Color version seemed mixed or negative with a 3.0/10 from IGN.[1] The Game Boy Advance version received an 8.0/10 on IGN.[2]

Sequels

After several years of re-releasing Nicktoons Racing for different consoles and platforms, with the last being the arcade version released in 2003, a sequel was put into production. Nicktoons Winners Cup Racing was released exclusively for the PC in February 2006. In 2008, a third Nicktoons Racing game was put into production, and was released in 2009 as Nicktoons Nitro, exclusively for the arcade.
