Well, it ain’t Mario Kart, but then again, nothing is. Doraemon Kart is just another in a whole smorgasbord of kart racers. It’s not bad, considering it’s a GameBoy game and all, and it’s not even a GBC title, so I guess that’s a few extra points for making the game look good in B&W. It’s worth run through, methinks.
The 1.01 patch gets the job done since almost all of the Japanese is translated but the project seems far from complete. Lots of small things need to worked on. The text doesn’t output correctly on some screens as unnecessary spaces and empty lines appear. The start/select menu has untranslated text. And the game definitely needs beta testing as grammatical and spelling errors are abound. The first glaring one was “relly” instead of “really” and where are the capital letters? Hopefully a follow-up patch will appear to fix all these minor things. Sure you can play it, but I’d rather have patch that glows with professionalism.
