Disney Super Speedway is a cartoonish racing game similar in style to Nintendo’s Mario Kart. Players control more modern Disney characters like Phineas and Ferb through a racetrack, tilting the screen left and right to change direction and avoid obstacles. Users can drift to make sharper turns, and use items to impede opponents. There are three levels of play, and nine different tracks, each with increasingly challenging courses and faster, more adept opponents. In order to compete on higher levels, users need to use currency they collect from winning races to purchase upgrades for their vehicles. Upgrades well give racers faster acceleration, a higher top speed, better handing, and a more stylish looking cars. There is no violence and the cartoonish gameplay lends itself well to younger users. It is recommended to children ages 4 and older.

 


this game is good for kids who need help with:

Flexibility

Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations, especially adapting to obstacles.

screen568x568-1When racing in Disney Super Speedway, players must adapt to changing levels of difficulty and a variety of racetracks. During races, it is important for players to understand how to make timely use of their items. Items are found at various intervals on the course and can also be purchased in-game if there is a particular need. By surveying the location of the other racers users will know which items are best to pursue. For players who are in the lead, choosing a shield will temporarily keep them from being knocked down from opponents who are using rockets. On the other hand, if players are lagging behind during a race, seeking out and using a more offensive item would be most beneficial. Speed boosts or rockets are items that will keep players in medal contention, even if they are in last place. There are a few variables that can also affect gameplay. There are falling oil drums, moving obstacles, and parts of the course where players can pick up speed. If players can think on their feet, and react quickly, they will be able to avoid most things standing in the way of first place.

Time Management

Being efficient and aware of our use of time and effort.. Estimating time and meeting deadlines.

screen568x568While there is no gameclock in Disney Super Speedway, players must utilize strategies that allow them to shorten the amount of time it takes to complete a particular race. Scattered throughout each course are double lined arrows which allow players a short burst of turbo charged speed. By drifting around tight corners, players are able to shave seconds off their overall race time. Often there are alternate routes where players can travel a portion of more difficult course to access a shortcut that will shorten the distance to the finish line. During the first two laps players can take more risks. They can try to take short cuts and drift more frequently. However, if players are ahead during the third and final lap, then they should race more conservatively. On the other hand, if they are behind on the final lap, they must take a few risks, maximizing the potential amount of turbo boosts they can execute in a single lap.
