bringing kart racers to life
Coffin Dodgers is a kart racer than can be played either single player or split screen
this game consists of 8 characters, a story mode, an explore mode, and a crazy grandad mode.
Crazy grandad is all about collecting items as fast as you can for a highscore, explore mode which can also be played split screen is essentially aa hub world where you can drive to the different events you unlock as you play through the story mode…
The story mode tells the tale of 7 old people who agree they are too young to die so they challenge the grim reaper to a race for their souls.. He agrees…
To keep your soul you have to finish in the top 3 overall in each location.
There are 4 locations and a 5th showdown location that mixes the first 4 into one giant race..
The 4 locations consist of 3 races each…
These races are 4 laps and take about 4 minutes each to complete, so youre looking at about a 1 hour long story.
These races are actually more about xp than they are winning…
In kart racing fashion there are mystery boxes laying around the course for item pick ups, and you can also hit other racers with your cane, or umbrella, or whatever other weapon you unlock as you progress..
You unlock items with this xp because xp earned from taking enemies out converts into coins at the end of the race..
You can use these coins to upgrade the body of your kart, its acceleration, your combat weapon, paint, the amount of items you can pick up, as well as your engine…
And honestly I think having a system like this in play rather than stat specific racers is a huge mistake…
Giving no stats to the characters takes all the life out of them, pun not intended…
But this is fine.. this allows you to grind levels to upgrade your kart if a race is giving you trouble, and many will..
Because unfortunately this kart racer is more luck based than it is skill based…
Its way too easy to be knocked out of first place into last…
it feels cheap and unfair to hold the lead up until the last lap and a rocket ruins this for you… there is no way to counter items…
and if you get hit by a car or get taken out by another racers you lose all items you’ve picked up which makes a first to last place situation feel even more cheap..
at the very least let me keep my items to try and climb back on top…
Other than the lifeless characters and cheap gameplay aspects of this game,
I found coffin dodgers to be insanely goofy fun, the levels are varied and awesomely designed.
I give Coffin Dodgers

It's been a while since there has been a good Mario Kart style game on the PC and so I was pleasantly surprised when this turned up. The dev team have put a lot of work into the story and character design, the scooter handling is solid and the racing action frenetic. Lots of achievements to get too.
The scope of the game could be greater but at £8.99 it is well worth it (I got it on sale so even better!!!)
