Anki Drive

Don’t bother re-reading that title, it makes even less sense the second time you read it.  Anki DRIVE has that familiar feeling of playing a car racing video game, complete with power-ups, upgrades, weapons and shields…expect it is real!  Or maybe it is more like racing classic slot cars on a track, except the cars never go off the track and oh yeah, did we mention you have lasers, cannons, bombs and tractor beams!

Anki DRIVE Robot Racing has a familiar feel, even though you have never played anything like it before!  The only hard part about Anki DRIVE is trying to describe exactly what it is…so let’s just show you instead.
