The slot racing system Scalextric has been around for a long time, but recently you might think that mobile and console gaming would have consigned these racing games to the scrapheap, which is a real shame because for many adults today this was the equivalent of a games console today, so surely this cannot be the end for Scalextric. Well the demise of this cool and classic racing gaming has been greatly exaggerated with the launch of the all new ARC ONE slot racing system that mashes the classic car racing game with the modern technology found in tablets and smartphones with interactive ARC smartphone and tablet app.
So now, the Scalextric racing game is aiming to attract the next generation of slot racers who will be able to manage the race with the app on a device that connects via a Bluetooth connection. It is simple to get to started too, simply download the app from Google Play or iTunes, enable a Bluetooth connection and lay out the track following the instructions. The are several race modes to choose from including practice, qualifying and racing. The app allows the player to start the race, detect jump starts, lap counts, top speed and contact with other cars. The Scalextric ARC ONE System C1329 will set you back around £100, which does not include the tablet or smartphone!
