Madagascar Wiki

Madagascar Kartz is a racing game based on DreamWorks Animation's Madagascar. It was released on October 27, 2009 and the second game on Madagascar's spin-off series.


The game is a basic kart racing game, and the player can perform jumps, flips, rolls. There are many different stages from scenes of the franchise. Playable characters include Alex, Marty, Gloria, Melman, King Julien, Mason and Phil, or all four of the penguins. The Madagascar Kartz Wheel is bundled with the Wii version of the game. This wheel is optional. This wheel's look is different from that of the Wii Wheel from Mario Kart Wii Two characters from other movies are included, Shrek from Shrek, and B.O.B. from Monsters vs. Aliens.

The gameplay is very similar to that of Mario Kart Wii, interestingly, the jumps, flips and rolls were inspired by Mario Kart Wii's tricking gimmick, which was new to the franchise at the time (and would also carry over to Mario Kart 7, 8, 8 Deluxe and Tour), the tracks have ramps in certain places similar to those found in Mario Kart Wii's Nitro Tracks, and in addition non-Madagascar characters make an appearance, which could be inspired by the appearance of Funky Kong in Mario Kart Wii, or the appearance of R.O.B The Robot in Mario Kart DS.
