Nature Cat Racing Rapids Game for Kids Game Play Instructions
How to Play
Race down river rapids in a custom sail boat. See if you can reach the finish line before the others in one piece!
Starting the Game
On the welcome screen, choose between 1- and 2-player modes.
To play single player, select the button on the lower left.
To challenge a friend, select the button on the lower right.
In one player mode you can steer in one of two ways:
Using your mouse, left click on the direction you want to go. Hold the click to move forward.
Use the up arrow key to move forward and the left and right arrow keys to move sideways.
In two player mode the first player uses WASD keyboard keys like an arrow direction pad and player 2 uses the arrow keys on the keyboard.
Use your fingers like a mouse.
Select the back button to return to the welcome screen.
Left click or tap to select a character, then select the OK button on the upper right corner to proceed.
The game is narrated; Nature Cat’s voiceover will serve as an in-game tutorial.
When the race begins, you can pause the game using the pause button on the upper right corner.
On the left side, you can see where you and the other racers are in the racecourse.
Each time one of the racers encounters an obstacle, their icon spins.
On the right side are your heart and speed boost meters.
You lose hearts each time you get hit, and gain them when you collect heart boxes.
You charge the speed boost each time you collect lightning boxes.
Character and vehicle selection:
Choose a racer among 4 characters:
Squeeks the mouse
Daisy the rabbit
Hal the dog
Customize your boat:
Select the arrows on the left and right of the boat to choose your components.
You have 3 options:
Sails: These improve your speed.
Base/Hull: Better bases are much stronger.
Decorations: Some decorations increase your defenses but slows your boat down.
Swap the components to strike a balance between speed and defenses.
Pick 1 of 4 courses to race.
Each course must be played in order. Complete one to unlock the other.
To move forward:
Left click/tap and hold
Press the up arrow key
Left click/tap to a different direction
Press either the left or right arrow keys.
The wind can help you go faster or slower, depending on the direction it blows.
You can also speed up by collecting boxes with a turbo boost in them.
Be careful! Speeding up can make it difficult to avoid obstacles.
Hearts represent the amount of times you can get hit.
See how many hearts you have left on the right side of the screen.
You lose more hearts if you’re in a boat that has fewer defenses.
You start off with 6 hearts.
When you lose all your hearts, it’s game over.
You can replenish your hearts by passing by boxes.
When you play in multiplayer mode two parallel paths are shown on the left and right halves of the screen.
The first player controls the racer on the left side of the screen and the second player controls the racer on the right side of the screen.
Racers can not participate on each other’s stream and can not hit into each other, but are having a time trial against one another to see who can get to the end of the race first.
If you run out of hearts in 2 player mode you get the hearts refilled after a couple second wait.
Whenever a player makes it to the checker flag they win and the race ends.
The game is suited for children of all ages and for fans of the PBS series Nature Cat.
The game has no adult content.
