29th September 2015

By Sam Applegate

I like bacon sandwiches.


The Scalextric ARC ONE (App Race Control) set is the eternal slot racing king's latest foray into the racing arena, and integrates a load of technology into its formula in an effort to keep it fresh and up to date.

As most people probably have at least an inkling of to Scalextric (I hate having to spell that word!) is about, I'll skip the overview. You still have the modular hard plastic track, cars, controllers. You'll still end up flying off the damn thing fairly regularly. So let's talk about the new stuff.

Miniature Race Radio

The Scalextric ARC ONE needs either a mobile or tablet to pair up with via Bluetooth, because its app its absolutely pivotal to the way that the game works. One of the flaws of the old game was trying to remember how many laps had been completed (or stopping your opponent from cheating!), as well as a certain degree of monotony inherent to the game. After all, you're basically just going round, and round, and round...

Recognising that, Scalextric have attempted to bring a greater element of realism to the experience by adding in the need to stop your car in a pit area after a certain amount of laps (refuelling/tyre changeover), random engine failures, disqualifications for jumping the start gun.... In short, a lot of the things you might see in a real life race.

The effect of these changes - which you can turn off, or opt for modes that don't include them - is to make the game much more tactical. Ignore tyre problems and your car will lose speed drastically and you could be disqualified. Spend too much time in the pit lane, or overrun it completely and the chances are that you'll lose!

Scalextric Gets Social

The app runs on your phone or tablet which slots into a cradle in front of the racers. It'll tell you your fastest lap time, highest speed, count the laps and even allow you to share you results on Twitter or Facebook. It plays sounds and counts the lights down at the start of the race to add a little more dramatic tension! Helpfully, there's also a display that tells you how much power you're demanding from the car, which is really useful when you mystifyingly keep skidding off the corners.

The Scalextric ARC ONE box set comes with two race cars, a circuit of track, two analogue controllers and a powerbase. The latest addition to the ARC ONE series is an F1 race car version (C1346 - Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 VS McLaren Mercedes) that's a bit more expensive, but perfect for racing enthusiasts. You can also just get the ARC ONE Powerbase (C8433) if you want to upgrade your existing analogue Scalextric set, allowing you to harness the power of the ARC ONE App system without having to buy a whole new track.

Engine Trouble?

The Scalextric ARC ONE set is a definite improvement on the racing sets of the past (although the old cars are must faster!) and successfully spices things up quite a lot. It's still not a cheap investment, although if you've got some old stuff in your loft then you might find that they'll work on the new circuit, which is sweet.

The app is only available for Android and IoS, so if you're one of those brave souls who plumped for a Windows phone or you plain old don't have a modern tablet or smartphone then it's not for you.

You're still going to need quite a bit of space to set it up, and the track is still fiddly to put together. Obviously if you want to add more excitement beyond the basic kit in the box, you're going to need to spend more money.

Compared to something like Anki Overdrive, the fact that you can only really race two cars at once (on this set), that you can't compete against AI and that there's no real story or progression beyond your own imagination is a weakness, but on the other hand, you are actually racing the cars rather than playing a shooting game.

Furthermore, you get the sense that there's more to come from the app and the technology side of things in the future. Watch this space.
