Simple Drift vs Manual Drift
Difference in Controls
Simple Drift = Easy
As the word itself implies, the Simple control method is the way to go if you're new to Mario Kart, allowing you to smoothly steer your kart, making it far easier to navigate narrow trails. You'll also be shown an arrow in front of your kart as a guide.Click Here To Know More About Driving Controls!
Manual Drift = Combos & Points
Manual Drift allows you to hold a drift for an extended period of time, allowing you to charge up and do Ultra Mini-Turbos, boosting speed and netting you more points after a long drift.Click Here To Know How To Earn Points!
Which Is Better?
Considering both methods' strengths, Simple Drift is the way to go if you want more control and are still not used to the long drifts in Mario Kart Tour. Manual Drift can be rewarding but very punishing if used incorrectly as it can cause your kart to spin uncontrollably.Click Here For More Recommended Control Method Settings!
How To Drift?
Hold Left Or Right
Drifting is done by tapping and holding the left or right side of the screen during a turn. This helps in helping you nevigate tight corners or long curves, slowing you down but in turn, gives you more control.Click Here To Know How To Drift!
As you drift, sparks will start to fly out of your tires, a sign that you are currently doing a Mini-Turbo. Mini-Turbo grants a momentary boost after a drift. The longer you drift, the better the boost.
