The great news is that Argos is now selling the Anki Overdrive as a Supertrucks Speed Bundle for just £150, a saving of 25%. The Spertrucks Speed Bundle includes an extra Supertruck vehicle as well as the Speed Kit, which includes two extra pieces of track to extend your layout for some seriously epic drag races. You already get two Supercars and plenty of race track in the standard set.
Not only is the Anki Overdrive like the slot-cars of your youth, they’re also modernised with weapon battles and AI racing, too. As you get the Supertruck, you can also play the Takeover mode. In this mode you have to hit the Supertruck enough times to take control of it and try to disable other cars. Only the Supertruck can earn points so it’s bound to be some manic fun.
Our review of the Anki Overdrive concluded: “The claims of this being a video game in real life may sound lofty, but this is exactly what you’re getting. If you think this is just slot-racing smartified, you’re doing it a huge injustice. There’s so much variety in here, and the expansions that have been made available since launch have taken it to a whole new level.”
