    Anki Overdrive - Every Car & Weapon - BigBang, Guardian

    Published on Jul 2, 2015

    We have an up close look and all the cars for the launch of Anki Overdrive. Not only in the hand but also on the track in the new King of the Hill mode with the new Anki Overdrive app.

    Here's the full run down of the cars:
    SKULL – The car’s Pirate Core lets it sail across the track at high speed while its cannon rips through enemy hulls.
    GROUNDSHOCK – Its PowerStation Core electrifies the track with split-second maneuvering and lightning-fast attacks. Don’t get in its way.
    THERMO - Its Magma Core engine is old-school meets future. Using hyper-charged internal combustion, it not only burns up the track, it projects fire at anyone in range.
    NUKE - Its Fusion Core can be charged up to unleash ultra-high energy blasts that tear through normal shields. Its cool exterior masks an unstable explosive interior.
    GUARDIAN - The car’s Siren Core keeps the pursuit of victory going at full volume. Its piercing sonic attacks go right through armor and cause challengers to lose control.
    BIGBANG – This armor-plated heavyweight’s Graviton Core creates massive shockwaves that send foes flying off course.

    Racing the robot cars of Anki Overdrive

    Published on Jul 21, 2015

    The name Anki may be familiar to some of you. It was the surprise guest at Apple’s 2013 World Wide Developer’s conference where it unveiled Anki Drive, a robotics-based race car game the combined an iOS App control system with a real track and electric toy race cars. The $200 final product, which arrived in stores that October, was pretty impressive. It featured an oval-pre-printed rack and two cars that could read the road, see each other and connected via Bluetooth to the Anki app.

    With Anki Overdrive, though, Anki has gone more than a few steps further, creating what may be the best possible version of the classic slot-based, physical racing games. Each $150 started kit comes 10 pieces of straight and curved flexible track that snap together magnetically. There’s also some elevation pieces, a four-car charging base and a tire cleaner. During my time with the set, we must have done three or four different configurations. I only wish the slot systems of my childhood had been so easy.

    As with the original set, Anki Overdrive includes two cars, though all the light-weight, palm-sized racers (additional ones cost $49 a piece) now benefit from the design chops of Harald Belker, the designer responsible for the look of the vehicles in Tron Legacy and Batman and Robin (you can’t blame him for the quality of those films). Anki’s cars include their own personalities and driving styles. Skull, for example, is a high-speed racer that features a canon. In Anki Overdrive, the “commander’ you choose in the app further modifies the driving style, whether you’re controlling the cars, or not. Anki representative told me that these new virtual race car drivers make it feel like you’re racing against a human instead of the computer (though, if it’s just you, you are racing against a computer).

    Anki Overdrive - Unboxing, Track Building & Robot Car Testing

    Published on Aug 24, 2015

    We unbox and play Anki Overdrive ahead of the game launching and the app being released. All sort of crazy tracks from a gargantuan collection of track pieces.

    The new Anki Overdrive game lets you snap together your own circuits before setting the Robot Cars loose to do battle. From there you then trigger a range of different game modes (Battle, Race, King of the Hill) as you progress through the game's story.

    There's multi-player and campaign modes as well as a host of computer AI drivers to take on. Each car has it's own special weapons and can be upgraded via the app.
