Mario Kart 64 Hot Potato Battle

Hack of Mario Kart 64

Description:

Update December 24, 2020: This Hot Potato Battle hack is now obsolete and has been superseded by Battle Kart 64 which includes everything from Hot Potato Battle, plus much much more. Please go to https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5618/ to download the latest version of Battle Kart 64.

Update April 14, 2020: New version 1.1! New gameplay options include infinite green shells, flat courses, and auto-items. New quality of life options include the ability to enable widescreen, disable anti-aliasing, enable music in 3 and 4 player modes, and an option to allow players to select the same characters.

This rom hack fundamentally changes how battle mode works in Mario Kart 64 into a frantic game of hot potato. Previously you had three balloons that you had to pop on each player and be the last player standing to win. This hack replaces the balloons with hit points (HP) and a countdown timer. When the battle starts, the first person hit becomes the “hot potato” and they start smoking and the timer starts counting down to zero. If another player gets hit before the countdown timer reaches zero, that player becomes the “hot potato” instead and will start smoking. This means if you are the hot potato, you need to hit someone else before the countdown timer reaches zero, leading to some fun frantic chases. Whoever is the hot potato when the counter reaches zero will briefly flash and lose 1 HP. When a player’s HP reaches zero, they die. The timer then resets and waits for the next player to be hit and the whole process starts all over again. Whoever is the last player standing wins.
