Penguin Kart 3: Race Through Time is the third Penguin Kart game in the series. This game not only has better things from the past two games, but it now has a plot.
Several smart penguins such as Gary the Gadget Guy, Richperson and Fred 676, simply the Time Agency No. 2, creates a time machine. However, a bomb flies in(probably Explorer 767's) and gets sent into the time machine. The penguins calculate that the bomb will blow up and wipe out the past, which will wipe out the present and future as well. Many volunteers are selected, and they are to find the bomb and defuse it.
The character finally comes to the bomb in an ancient palace. He/She defuses it and saves time.
The game uses pretty much all of the gameplay of the previous games, but Snowtendo has added a couple of new features in the game.
The new features include:
- All new(and old) characters: a total of 150 characters!
- New(and old) missions
- All new tracks
- New items to bust your opponents
- New and old upgraded Special Items to get the advantage: 150 different Specials! Can you find them all?
- Different music for each Special Item
- BOSS FIGHTS!
- Story Mode has the player racing through time to defuse the bomb and save time.
- Freeplay mode has the player to choose a stage and race against fourteen random opponents.
- Grand Prix mode has the player racing in a cup against 56(or less) other racers.
- Time Trial has the player trying to finish a cup ASAP and set a record.
- Battle Arena Mode has the player fighting against other players, popping their balloons, collecting coins, doing stunts, etc.
- X-Treme Mode has the player facing off against one of the fastest racers in the game, X-Treme Penguin in 4 hard races. If you best X-Treme in all four modes in a row and then beat him in a boss fight, you unlock him as a playable character!
- X Battle has the player race against SnoX -if his DLC in purchased- through the spooky Haunted Puffle Hotel! Win against him to unlock the 13th Floor battle arena, where you can battle Skip the miniboss. If you win, you unlock SnoX!
- Boss Rush Mode has the player fighting every boss in story mode. Unlocked after beating story mode at least once.
- And more!

It then crashes on the player and their speed will be much slower for 30 seconds.)||||Plaza||Hidden (Found in the Plaza by entering the Stage and bumping into the filming camera; found by entering the Puffle Berry Mall and taking the shortcut through the cinema in the late 2015 update) (added to the game in a DLC released in 2015)||Zeno is taking a break from directing to--wait... that's a camera car...|

When the doomsday device explodes, it leaves a pile of freezing liquid around the victim, trapping them and freezing them solid temporarily for 15 seconds. Anyone who touches the liquid also becomes frozen solid, but only for 7 seconds. This does not apply to SnoX unless the bomb detonates on him. Due to OP potential, it is activated when obtained. The liquid evaporates after a minute of sitting there.)||Music (It gets faster as the bomb gets closer to detonating, however, as long as an opponent is frozen, it will keep playing.)||Haunted Puffle Hotel||Hidden (In the Battle arena of the Haunted Puffle Hotel, you are on the top floor with Skip as a miniboss. Defeating Skip results in SnoX being unlocked.) (added to the game in a DLC released in 2015)||He's not so big-- he's most certainly bad, though. His Doomsday Device will wreck havoc on anyone-- and wait too long-- you, too, will be frozen solid! Be careful and cautious when doing evil works, kids!|

2015 Downloadable Content Pack
To prepare for the upcoming 2016 release of Penguin Kart 4, a DLC released in March of 2015 available to buy for $6.99. It includes:
- Four new race tracks.
- PuffleVille Loop
- Skate Park
- Haunted Puffle Hotel
- Five new hidden playable characters.
- Two new gamemodes.
- X Battle
- Boss Rush
The race tracks and game modes are instantly unlocked, but the characters are all hidden; before the release, this caused controversy, but after the DLC released, fans of the game found out that the ways to unlock them were relatively easy.
- Though not a direct parody, it is a reference to the popular Nintendo game Mario Kart.
- Snow's original power item was a Microphone. He'd play it in a rough voice, causing anyone in range to go spinning.
