It takes everything you loved about the original and cranks it up to eleven. This means better graphics, larger environments, new gameplay elements, and plenty of cars to collect.

‘Rev Heads Rally’ is a New Kart Racing Game from the Makers of ‘Faily Brakes’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Developer Spunge Games has spent the past couple of years making spin-offs and updates that all stem from their endless driver/crasher Faily Brakes, but they’ve now announced a brand new project outside of the Faily world. It’s called Rev Heads Rally and Spunge describes it as “A combative racer that plays homage to Mario Kart – but with real physics and dynamic crashes along with real-time multiplayer and an exciting AR mode.” Hey, I’m sold on that quick pitch! Of course, a picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is just a ton of pictures in motion, so that’s, like, millions of words worth or something. Basically what I’m trying to say is watch this teaser for Rev Heads Rally to see what it’s like in action.

Rev Heads Rally is shooting for a simple control scheme with auto-acceleration and touching either side of the screen to steer, with buttons available for boosting and activating your power-up items. The release date is pegged for the end of April, but until then you can find a bit more information (with apparently even more to come in the coming days) as well as some discussion about Rev Heads Rally in our forums, and look for this one towards the end of next month.

Riding in the Mercedes-AMG Cigarette Racing 515 Project One boat at 119 mph

On Thursday morning, I hopped on the new Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE, and became the first non-employee to experience the potency of Formula One at sea. Its top speed is a delirious 140 miles per hour, and it’s capable of a face-numbing 3100 horsepower. I’m still feeling the tingle of wind burn.

We glided out to sea at a smooth crawl, and once in open waters, the skipper cranked up the throttle. “Wooooo!” I screamed, along with a few expletives, as we coasted along the water. The wind scraped against my cheeks and billowed my clothes. Forget about scrolling through your phone when the Project One is on the move. My eyelids flickered from the force of the rushing ocean air. A mixture of euphoria, suspense, and a wee bit of anxiety…

iTunes Description

Official app of the board game by AJ Porfirio and Van Ryder Games. In Hostage Negotiator, you play the part of a law enforcement agent responsible for negotiating the release of hostages taken by an unscrupulous figure hell-bent on having his or her demands met.

Each turn in the game represents a conversation between you and the hostage taker. You’ll play cards and roll dice to increase conversation points, decrease the threat level, and release hostages. Hostage Negotiator uses a unique “hand-building” mechanism that puts cards you purchase directly in your hand for next turn rather than leaving you wondering when the cards will show up like in deck-building games.

In Hostage Negotiator there are multiple paths to victory, but the hostage taker has other plans. Will you try to calm him and get him to surrender? Will you stall and bide your time before sending in the team for a major extraction? How many hostages will you save? These are many of the exciting decisions you will make in a game of Hostage Negotiator!

MacRumors Giveaway: Win an Anki OVERDRIVE Fast & Furious Edition Racing Game

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.

We have three Anki OVERDRIVE Fast & Furious sets to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winners and send the prizes. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years or older and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) who have reached the age of majority in their province or territory are eligible to enter. To offer feedback or get more information on the giveaway restrictions, please refer to our Site Feedback section, as that is where discussion of the rules will be redirected.
