The game was first tested in Dorkugal and was also released there first. Many penguins enjoyed it because of all the fun in the game.


This game have 3D graphics and psychics, Penguin Kart is a racing game in which the player controls characters from the entire USA, most of the characters drive in vehicles, while others just run and hover over the track. The unique vehicles can be rided on by any characters if it's unlocked, although, before they are unlocked, all the racers drives/hops in regular go-karts, bicycles, motorcycles, skateboards, scooters, roller skates, sleds, and even run over the entire track. While racing, the player can accelerate, steer, reverse, brake, hop, collect coins, or use weapons and power-ups with the Viimote. There are three type of boxes located on each tracks, the most common are the regular item boxes, the second most common is the coin box, and last but not at least, the glowing item box, if any of them are smashed, something happens. Boxes with a question marks on them holds weapons and power-ups, which can be obtained by driving through and breaking apart the item box. When the player collects a weapon or power-up, it will appear in a box at the top of the screen. The player can then activate the weapon or power-up to attack other racers or gain more speed. The glowing item box is rarer than the regular item boxes, and it just looks like it, but covered with a green glow, breaking one can give the player a special weapon or power-up to activate it or a various amount of coins. Coin boxes carry coins that increases the speed of the player's vehicle and strengthens the player's weapons and power-ups if ten of them are obtained.

Once upon a time in Club Penguin Island, it was a normal day, until ... dark clouds started to appear everywhere in Antarctica, a voice from a radio station said that it appears that Darktain himself is trying to take over the Antarctica, he also said that he would do it in a game of go-kart racing, if anybody is able to stop him, the whole continent would be safe, but if they didn't, the entire Antarctica is doomed and everyone else there would become brainwashed servants of Darktan.

Meanwhile, in a subplot, Fudd looses his tuba to Darktan and decides to take it back by blowing up the castle!



After the Antarctican driver defeated Captain Str00del of the Darktonian Realm, Darktan is still nowhere to be found while a mysterious cave opens up, the driver then drives into a cave, suddenly, Darktan appears in a big screen, he says that he is located somewhere else in the outskirts of the Darktonian Realm, and he is waiting for the driver to challenge him.

Meanwhile, the driver unsuspectingly defeats Darktan in a race, the evil penguin then has to give up the plan and do something else better for him. After the rise and fall of Darktan's Plan happened, the driver, along with some of the playable characters, celebrates in the Darktonian Realm, and then the credits appears.

Bonus Ending[]

After the credits a bonus ending is shown.

In it, Fudd grabs the tuba from Darktan and runs out of the cave just before it explodes.

Out of the cave comes Darktan who throws a boot at Fudd and it hits him in the face, much to the enjoyment of the other racers.

Adventure Avenue[]

All of the boss characters can't be used in Adventure Avenue.

Adventure Avenue is the adventure mode of the game, the player must use the character of their own choice and must race through all events in order to race against Darktan to save the world, the player can also unlock some characters as well.

There are some different awards that the player can earn:

Racing Trophies

The player can earn a trophy by finishing first place in a trophy race. Collecting all four trophies can earn the player a boss race. After earning a trophy from one race, another one will open.

Vortex Accesses

Boss races are unlocked after the player earns at least four trophies in a different world. Vortex Accesses are obtained by defeating the boss of each different world, after that, a vortex appears, if the player goes inside the vortex, they may go into a different world with different tracks and themes.

Jeweled Keys

Jeweled Key races are unlocked after winning a trophy race in the same track. There are three different colors for the key, they are: Bronze, Ruby, Onyx. The bronze keys are the easiest one to collect, while Onyx and Ruby keys are harder to get. If the player wins a jeweled key race, an jewel key is awarded to the player depending on their final time spending on the track. In jeweled key races, the item boxes and the coin boxes are replaced with a time box, if a time box is hit, the time will froze for 1/2/3/4 seconds, if the player breaks all the time boxes, they will get a perfect bonus, decreasing their final number by ten. If the player earns all jeweled keys, the player can race against Darktan two times and unlock extra tracks to play in different modes.

Puffle Tokens

Just like the jeweled key races, the token races are unlocked after winning a trophy race. While racing in a token race, the player must collect all six puffle token pieces, if the player managed to get all six pieces and win in the first four, a puffle token is rewarded, however, if the player is one of the first four and did not collect any puffle token pieces, the token is not rewarded apparently. There are nine different colors for the puffle token pieces, the blue, red, yellow, green, purple, pink, black, and white are earned in token races, while the orange puffle tokens are earned after collecting all coins in a battle arena.

Snowball Cups

Snowball Cups are unlocked after winning all tokens of the same color, the snowball cups can be found in the other side of the Darktonian Realm. The tracks in the snowball cups takes places of the four races where the puffle token pieces were played on, with the exception of orange, in the orange snowball cup, the player faces four random bosses (except for Darktan, Fake Tails, Darktonian Mansion, and Aero Antagonist) and their home-track. If the player wins a snowball cup, they will earn a special snowball, unlocking a boss character: (except for Pen Chi)

It is possible to have 101% or 102% completion without cheating. This is where the player successfully completed Adventure Avenue, with jeweled keys at ruby (101%) or all jeweled keys onyx.
