SpeedRunners is basically a 2D mario-kart with Runbow essence game play.
SpeedRunners by DoubleDutch games, is RunBow mixed with Mario-kart.
From unlocking character and skins, one can also unlock levels and items.
Levels range from the airport, the metro, night club, and so many more.
Along with the official levels, one can even play user made ones, which is a plus for when
one gets tired of the official ones.

Game Play

there are around three options for game play; Story mode, Quick or custom match, and Ranked matches.
Story mode is basically for unlocking some characters and skins, I only went up to level two to unlock the shark man.

Quick Match is for when you just want to play without any risks, you just pick up, and play with this mode.
Custom match is for when you want to play with friends, i have only used it once (because i really don't have friends)
but when we did there was less buggy game play, so keep that in mind.

Ranked matches is really self-Explained, basically you race with other people to become the speed king. When the game finds a
match for you it makes sure that it is people with the same skill level as you, a nice plus so you don't go strait against pro-level

Racing in the game is really fun from my experience, only problem that i have had are the Bugs. The first one is when some one
else joins the game; the game starts, and the other player spawns way a head of everyone else and instantly wins.
The other glitch; When racing with someone, they (Or you for that matter) can honestly go strait through walls, I am not even kidding.

The characters in the game can range from space-women, to shark-men. The characters have many skins you can unlock, so if you are not satisfied with default
you can change the colors of the person.

The way you unlock people, is the same way you unlock places, and items; you race.
It doesn't matter how you race, you just have to race, the only thing is, you cannot get XP from user-made levels.
+ User Content
+ simple controls

+ Works on old hardware
- Still buggy in multiplayer
- Ranking takes a longer than it should
