Product Description

Battle and race the Supercars of the future in Anki OVERDRIVE. Using your mobile device, take command of real robotic Supercars on epic battlefields you construct in seconds. Challenge friends in a variety of game modes, or go head-to-head with AI controlled Commanders in a quest to become champion of the Anki OVERDRIVE Tournament. On the road to victory kick your skills into overdrive by customizing your Supercar's speed, weapons and defenses through in-game upgrades. Anki OVERDRIVE brings futuristic battle racing roaring to life. Set up is quick and easy. Simply open the Starter Kit, build one of 8 unique battlefields, download the Anki OVERDRIVE app on your iOS or Android device, and you're off and racing.

Starter Kit Includes:
2 Robotic Supercars
6 curved track pieces
4 straight track pieces
2 riser pieces
1 four-car charging system
1 tire cleaner

Right out of the box, 10 Anki OVERDRIVE track pieces allow you to build and rebuild up to 8 epic battlefields in seconds. Every Starter Kit comes with Skull and GroundShock, robotic Supercars with their own unique weapon systems and the technology to intelligently think for itself on the battlefield. SKULL's Pirate Core lets it sail across the track at high speed while a plasma cannon rips through enemy hulls. Watch out for this down and dirty warrior that plays by its own rules. The Plasma Cannon is Skull's weapon of choice and fires a single massive ball of energy down the track. If it hits an opponent it will explode, causing damage to everyone in a large area. GroundShock's Thunderbolt Core lets it electrify the track with split-second maneuvering and lightning-fast attacks. Don't be in the way when it unleashes its electric blasts. It shoots first and aims later. GroundShock's exclusive ElectroPulse causes its core to continuously discharge its energy, creating a circle of lightning that damages the nearest enemy.

Features

  • Modular tracks (10 pieces, 8 different tracks)
  • All-new white-knuckle gameplay modes
  • Go head-to-head with friends or step up your game against enemy AI Commanders and their crews

This is quite a remarkable TOY, I'm not sure that word best describes this race/battle car track set. The way the track sets up is a great improvement over the old tracks!!! I am 59yrs old and my granddaughter is 5yrs old and we spend a lot of time playing the game setting up new track courses . The wife even joins in and that's a good thing because I'm hoping praying that it lessens the blow when she finds out how much I've spent.

Incomplete Product Shipped...Could not give for Christmas

I ordered this product online on or about Dec. 13th, and planned to give as a "Santa" gift for my two boys. My wife and I waited until Dec 23rd to open the box for wrapping (it was easier to hide 1 big box rather than several small boxes). When we opened the shipping box, we found 3 smaller boxes. After reviewing the contents of each box, we realized that we were missing most of the track system and 1 of the cars. We should have received 2 cars (only received 1...not part of the original 2), 4 straight pieces (only received 2), 6 curved pieces (only received 2), a 4 car charger (not included), and tire cleaner (not included). This was not enough pieces to even make a complete loop. I called that evening and spoke with "Carol" who was helpful and attentive to our situation. She made note of the items we were missing and said she would try to have a complete set shipped overnight, but could not guarantee its delivery on Christmas Eve. We were told that we had to return the original "incomplete" shipment back to them within 30 days or we would be charged for the second shipment as well. We received the return labels via email on Dec. 24th. As of today, Dec. 28th, we still have NOT received our complete Overdrive set. This experience with ToysRUs has been horrible and we do not plan to purchase anything from them online ever again. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND purchasing IN STORE ONLY, or not at all.

Definitely worth the money!

Comments about Anki Drive Anki OVERDRIVE Starter Kit:

We bought this for our 13 year old son who enjoys remote control cars and anything that he can use his phone with! He's set up tons of different tracks and raced with the system as well as others. Our only disappointment is with the amount of time the cars hold a charge. If they would last longer, it would be great, but I will say that they re-charge very quickly.

My boys love this!

Comments about Anki Drive Anki OVERDRIVE Starter Kit:

Bought this as a gift for my 10 year old son. Actually, my husband picked it out because he wanted to play with it! Once we opened the package and got everything set up, we found out the charger plug was bad. We called Anki (on a holiday) and they were accessible and said they would send us a new one if we scanned and emailed a copy of our receipt. Not a big deal because we have plenty of charger plugs. Then we realized one of the cars was bad - it wouldn't run on the track. So we called Anki again and they said they would mail us a new car or we could bring the entire set back to Toys R Us and exchange it for a new one. We opted with bringing it back to TRU since my son was anxious to play with the track set. TRU was great - the exchange was easy and without any issues. My son and husband set up the track, downloaded the apps and started racing. They both love it and my 7 and 5 year old daughters are "racing" too when ever they can get my husband to give up a car. I expect to buy additional cars so more than two people can race at a time. I have rated this product a 4 since we had the issues with the charger plug and car.

      The game is owssome! The AI is really good, the cars do u turn automatically when they crash. The races are exciting because you shoot and defender yourself all the time during the race. It is not just a race, you have to use strategy. You have to control which lane, speed, weapons, etc. It is challaging!

      Great product. Also good use of ipad and smart phones, kids feels they are using smart phones/ipad but not actually watching it. They just use it to control and race cars. My kids can play this for two or more hours. Great product for winter fun inside house

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Anki Drive Anki OVERDRIVE Starter Kit:

      Product is fun, but 15 laps can get a bit boring if you only have the starter kit. I wish they would let you lower the laps for those of us with a low attention span playing with a six year old:) MAKE SURE YOUR DEVICE IS COMPATIBLE and a good internet connection!!! you could be spending a lot of money and not even be able to play. One of my vehicles was defective, I couldn't get the system to recognized it. After some troubleshooting with a couple of very nice Anki techs, they decided to send me a new one. It works great now!

      Pros

      • Easy to assemble
      • Nice app
      • Well produced

      Cons

      • Expensive
      • Too focused on the app

      Best Uses

        Comments about Anki Drive Anki OVERDRIVE Starter Kit:

        So far this is a really great set. Comes with two cars and a big track. SO easy to put together--not like the old school race car tracks. And the cars stay on, which is also better than the old tracks. My son (9 years old) loves this. My only disappointment is that it's very focused on the app when you're playing it. Don't get me wrong, the app is very well produced and it teaches you how to work with the cars as you move through levels, including how to shoot other cars. I just would love it if some toy somewhere would get them back to the physical world rather than being so centered on the screen. Fuddy duddy, perhaps, but you end up watching the app most of the time while playing this rather than paying attention to the cars.
