OverviewOverview

Race with Ryan is a kart racing game staring Ryan from the Ryan’s World YouTube channel. Along with the racing you need to collect the Mystery Eggs scattered across each track. Each one then gives you a power up to help you win.

You race against people and characters from Ryan's World, like Policeman Ryan in his Patrol Car, Red Titan, Gus the Gummy Gator and Pirate Combo Panda. You race in different locations, again drawn from the show, including the miniature toy world of Fantasy Park and the pirate kingdom of Treasure Island. Each track has lots of shortcuts and secrets to discover.

Along with the popular theme to the racing, the simple controls make it easy for a wide range of players. There's an optional auto-acceleration mode and a tutorial to guide younger players through their first video game.

The Race With Ryan Road Trip Deluxe Edition expands things with 12 new drivers and an open road mode. There are 4 new circuits like the historic Route 66, Icy Land and Forest.
