Anki Overdrive has been getting a lot of publicity this year, partly because it is being advertised heavily on Channel 4 television in the UK. This is leading to Anki Overdrive becoming one of the most wished for toys by young would-be racing drivers.
There are racing cars and then there are Supercars that own the track. That’s what Anki Overdrive is. Long gone are the days when you simply run a car across a racetrack trying to be faster than your opponent.
Not so with this incredible toy. Anki Overdrive has cars that allow you to disable the car you’re racing against. It’s a little like using the cars in an epic battle of laser tag. These futuristic cars race around tracks that are more than just tracks. They tracks become battlefields – and only the most cunning players will taste victory in the race. There are different game modes you can play and you can customize your car so that it is a personal battle one on one with your opponent.
You can decide how fast the car goes and the weapons that it will use to defend itself. It’s easy to get started battling it out. You have to decide which battlefield of the eight that you want to use and construct it.
Some of the top contenders are the Overpass, the Loopback and the Wedge. When you’re done setting up the track, then you download the Anki Overdrive app to your mobile phone or tablet and you’re ready to make the road your own.
Each of the sets come with two of the Supercars, a variety of track pieces, both straight and curved, as well as two risers, the charging piece, and a tire cleaner. You can add to the sets.
The cars that you get in the set are the Groundshock and Skull and what’s really cool about these cars is that they’re the ones that can make decisions about racing and defending themselves to beat the other car.
There are many variations on how you can play the game so that no battle is ever the same as the one before. The cars themselves are quite awesome to see in action. Groundshock can make the track electrified which creates lightning to be able to disable the opponent.
It does this through electropulse. These electric blasts make it a top challenger on any of the track designs. Skull is made for speed and has a cannon that can stop an opponent in his tracks.
He comes ready to play to win. The plasma cannon shoots energy toward the other car and if it hits it, the car explodes. You can choose to upgrade variations with the cars when it comes to the speed and the weapons that they use.
These virtual weapons the cars use can be quite cunning as they work to create chaos for their opponents. When you buy this set, you will have to have a mobile device that’s compatible such as an iOS or Android. If you use the mobile devices for the battles, you have to have Wifi.
This is a fantastic toy that will provide hours of fun for all the family. Buy Anki Overdrive from Amazon now.
