Mario Kart is a popular racing game that many Mill Creek students have played when they were little all the way up until recently when the new app was just launched on September 25.

“I had always loved playing Mario Kart as a kid with my friends, and I never knew how much I missed that feeling until now,” Jaci Bone, 11, said.

Many students have been playing Mario Kart on their phones throughout the school day.

Corey Carney, 11, has found that it can be a distraction when trying to complete his school work.

“I was playing [Mario Kart] during my history class, and time must have gotten away from me because I didn’t finish my assignment that was due by the end of the period,” Carney said.

All in all, the latest version of this old game has had some kind of impact on many students’ lives this week, whether it be positive or negative. It is not only popular here at Mill Creek but all around the world. It is ranked as the number one action game in the app store, with a ranking of 4.8 out of 5 stars.

“Me and my family have loved to play Mario Kart since I was a child, it has been a popular game for as long as I can remember,” Lara Ridley, 11, said.
