M&M's Kart Racing (Wii)
|M&M's Kart Racing|
M&M's Kart Racing is a notoriously poor racing game featuring M&M's characters.
"APPROACHING SOUND BARRIER!"
A track skip feature was left enabled in retail release of the game. During gameplay, press B, -, and 1 simultaneously and the game will skip to the next track. If done on the final track, The Stadium, the game will load the main menu map as a track, causing a bunch of odd glitches.
Wolfschanze 1944 Leftovers
Easily the weirdest part of the game is data from another game, Wolfschanze 1944, which was developed two years prior by Calaris Studios. Calaris and Frontline share a lot of staff between both studios, so they may be separate development teams owned by the same parent company. data/gfx/menu is where the leftover data is located.
There's a leftover text file in TEXT.STD, along with a Russian and Polish version.

This game has many Thumbs.db files, which contain thumbnails to all the files in a specific folder, and there are some that aren't in the folder anymore. The one in the data folder contains some really odd stuff.
The thumbnail of the folder itself.
A temporary loading screen.
Leftovers from Chicken Shoot, unsurprisingly from the same developers. For some reason, they're normally upside-down.
The front of a car pasted over and over.
Weird HUD Stuff
HUD graphics from an obscure 2005 PC game by Calaris Studios based on the famous Polish comic series Tytus, Romek i A'Tomek (which translates to "Monkey's Adventures").
The HUD for the cursor from Mysterious Island, another obscure PC game by Calaris.
Unused Level Screen
In levels_screens.bmp (the image for all the level previews), there is text in the bottom-right corner reading "wolne", which means "free" in Polish.
The only sound in sound/sound_data.brsar is Yoshi.
The sound folder has two leftover MIDI files from the Wii SDK.
