Anki Drive Turns Gaming Into Real Racing For iOS!

Here is a cool game designed for the users of iOS powered devices and yet it is not an arcade style video game as such like you would expect. Anki is a real style racing game like Scalextric but with more skill because the cars have the added bonus of featuring artificial intelligence and robotics. Therefore, that means that these cars can be tuned and adjusted to suit the driver’s requirements and skills on the track.

To get racing there is a starter kit that has two cars, the track, chargers and tyre cleaner! Each player will need either an iPhone 4S or newer, an iPod touch (5th generation or newer), an iPad 3 or newer or even the iPad mini. All devices must have the Anki DRIVE Smartphone app installed and ready to go. The final requirement is a clear area of 3.5 feet x 8.5 feet floor to roll out the track.

@Animazombs! Not All Zombies Were Humans!

 

There is no doubt that we like zombies whether they are in games, movies or on the TV and yet we have never seen anything like this before! These Animazombs are cool interactive plushie animals, that just happen to be zombies and therefore it is something that anyone who into zombies will need to take a closer look at, their cute, cuddly and will probably eat your brains if you give them half a chance.

Here is the background on why these zombie creatures were created in the first place;

The Animazombs are a horde of misunderstood, clumsy, attention-seeking zombie animal softies who just want to be loved!! Brought to life by the delightfully eccentric Professor Unbound, these creations didn’t quite come out as he’d intended, but he became quite fond of their zany ways and decided to keep them that way.

You cannot buy Animazombs in the stores just yet, but if you cannot wait, they can be pre-ordered! Prices start from just £20 ($32) the price will increase according to style and amount.

Blackbar Its A Game With An Edge!

 

When you first see this, it looks like someone does who just does not want their identity known, as the photos appear with a black bar across the features. However, in fact, this is a game that mixes censorship and text together in a dark moody looking game. It is safe to say that this game is going to be very frustrating, but isn’t that the sort of game that we want?

This is how the Blackbar game is played according to the designer;

Blackbar is a text game: a sci-fi story of a dystopian future told through the medium of word puzzles. Reminiscent of text adventures and interactive fiction, it has a unique mechanic centred around the concept of censorship. Censorship is frustrating, but the human spirit can beat that frustration by turning it into a game.

The Blackbar text game app is available to owners of iOS devices from iTunes for $2.99 (£1.99).
