Kart Kingdom is an online game/MMO created by PBS Kids. It was launched as a beta on March 24, 2015 (it is no longer a beta) and was the first online multiplayer world made by PBS Kids. It currently has about 50,000+ players. It can be played on the PBS Kids website at http://pbskids.org/kartkingdom/ and on the free Kart Kingdom App (available for Apple, Android, and Kindle tablets). The game also has its own blog.
There are 4 areas: Grand Glade, Mount Snow, The Deep, and Bug Garden. There are 5 quests in each area, making a total of 20 quests to do in the game. In quests, players explore an area to find objects.
Gadgets can be used to help with quests.
Icons are buttons that are on the screen in Kart Kingdom. Some are speecebubbles, emojicons, and different moves like jumping, hopping on the rear wheels or front wheels, and just doing the KK "jig".
Landmarks are all over Kart Kingdom. Landmarks include places like The Big Mushrooms in Bug Garden and the Pond by the Game's Tent in Grand Glade.
In quests, you jump by tapping the UP key or by pressing the SPACE key. You activate gadgets and go through doors by tapping the DOWN key. You go left by tapping the LEFT key, and go right by tapping the RIGHT key. Outside the questing area, the UP key moves your avatar away from the front of the screen, and the DOWN key moves your avatar towards the front of the screen. To go fast, press SHIFT+RIGHT/LEFT. For more movements, press the dance button on the bottom left of the screen. The LEFT and RIGHT keys work the same as in quests.
Bits are things you find in quests, and things you can earn in games. You can use them for crafting Karts, wheels, stickers, gadgets, and Power-ups.
