The next level
The objective of the game is to tag the opposing player, and then return to the goal. To prevent the other player from reaching their goal, one must tag them by driving into them, and then immediately turn around and begin making their way to their goal. The first one to reach their respective goal while being "it" will win the game.
At the bottom of the screen is a meter that indicates how far away the opposing player is. The smaller the icon is, the farther away they are, and the larger the icon is, the closer they are.
Lightning is the player's character in all nine levels of the story mode, although there are more choices in arcade mode.
- Try to tag your opponent!
- If you get tagged, chase and tag your opponent before they reach the goal!
- Reach your goal first to win!

- Vince is the only character who appears in more than one level in the story mode as the opposing player.
- Text found within the game's data states that Snot Rod was initially intended to be the player's opponent, but was replaced with Luigi as his high acceleration abilities would make him next to impossible to beat. According to the text, Sarge, Gudmund, and Emma were also considered as choices for the opponent.
