This of course is a hack of the popular SNES game, Super Mario Kart. Just like the base game, there are 4 different cups with 5 tracks per cup, with 3 different speed classes, 50cc, 100cc, and the unlockable 150cc.

SMK - Aim to be a Hero includes:

20 NEW custom tracks to replace the original game’s tracks with
4 cups to race through, those being Shitake Cup, Rose Cup, Superstar Cup, and finally Hero Cup
Altered color palettes for most of the track themes, while a couple remain pretty much the same as the original
A tweaked scoring system for Grand Prix mode, awarding 9 points for 1st, 7 points for 2nd, 5 points for 3rd, 4 points for 4th, 3 points for 5th, 2 points for 6th, 1 point for 7th and 0 points for 8th
Tweaked item probability so the Feather item is exclusive to the battle mode along with the Boo
8 track themes in total, 6 new with 1 being taken from Super Circuit, including Pats Acres, Seaside Beach, Mt. Glacier, Sunset Wilds, Davis Farm, Laboratory, Haunted Cave and Rainbow Road
