The Emperor's Mad Dash

Kuzco is in a heap of trouble. He's about to flunk gym class and lose his kingdom to Yzma - and there's nothing he can do to stop it. Nothing. Well, okay, so maybe there is one thing... Kuzco MUST win the annual Kuzco Academy Cross Country Race! The bad news: he's racing against Kronk. The worse news: Yzma just whipped up a fresh batch of evil, race-thwarting potions. BUT you can use Yzma's potions to your advantage! Guide Kuzco through three heart-pounding levels to win the race.

  • Use the spacebar or click the BONUS POTION to use it.

The Emperor's Mad Dash Gameplay

A moment of the gameplay.


The game works in a side perspective of Kuzco running across a path with a wall on his left and a river on his right. He runs foward and the player needs to move him across the three areas turning him into animals. Being interrupted three times results in a game over and winning the three stages results in the victory. At the path, the player may find Kronk, rock piles, spider webs and holes. At the water, the player may find Kronk, rocks and waterfall. At the sky, the player may find Coach Sweety with a butterfly net, stormy clouds and crows. Sometimes, obstacles are made only for a certain kind of animal, and the player may defeat that obstacle simply not being that animal.
