For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with Anki to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win the Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition iPhone-compatible racing game.
Anki OVERDRIVE is an intelligent battle racing system where players construct different battle tracks for AI-controlled cars to race on. Each car that races on the OVERDRIVE track is equipped with unique capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses and the idea is to pit your strategic skills against your friends or the computer to win.
With Anki OVERDRIVE, you don’t control the car yourself — you build the track and use your car’s features to win out against the opponent, initiating races via the iPhone and using your car’s unique abilities and weapons at the right times.
The latest version of Anki OVERDRIVE, the Fast & Furious Edition, is based on the “Fast & Furious” movie franchise. It comes equipped with unique cars from the “Fast & Furious” movies and a new game mode, Hyperspeed, that lets you cars race faster than ever.
Priced at $170, Anki OVERDRIVE Fast & Furious comes with a full track for you to build and super detailed replicas of movie vehicles, including Dom’s Ice Charger and Hobbs’ MXT. Each vehicle has unique skills, such as a Grappling Hook on Dom’s Ice Charger, which can slow down opponents while giving your car a boost, and Spike Strips for the MXT.
As for weapons, each car is equipped with short range, long range, and area of effect weapons, and there are a range of support items available like shields, tractor beams, scramblers, and boosts. Car abilities, items, and weapons can all be used during races with the Anki Overdrive app on the iPhone.
You can engage in six game modes, all with different gameplay mechanics: Race, Battle, Battle-Race, King of the Hill, Time Trial, and Takeover, and when not racing against friends, you’ll be able to race characters from the movie like Letty, Tej, Hobbs, and Dom.
