High-speed action. Robotic insect and animal racers. Wii Wheel controls.
Bowling, poker, clowns – and sandwiches! Add them all together and you
get the wild, nonstop fun of Excitebots: Trick Racing.
This game takes the big-air thrills and simple pick-up-and-play
controls of Excite Truck™ and ramps up the fun with a constant
barrage of funky challenges and mini-games performed at blinding
speed. Players shoot goals, throw pies and even play poker in the
middle of rowdy races around off-road tracks.
Having your vehicles drive, walk or fly around the track quickly is
one thing, but it's more important to go around in style. Players earn
stars for huge jumps, cool tricks and daring feats at high speed.
If friends can't join online, players can exchange ghost data via
WiiConnect24™ and challenge their friends to outdo their most daring
tricks. (Note that broadband access is required for online play.)
How to progress through the game: Players race around tracks at
high speeds while performing stunts and participating in mini-games, all
in an effort to earn stars. Players win bonus stars for crossing the
finish line sooner, but stunts and style are as important as speed.
Stars can be traded for a variety of goodies, like new vehicles, icons
Controls: The 2 Button on the Wii Remote™ controller is the gas.
The + Control Pad gives drivers a speed boost. Players turn the Wii
Wheel accessory left or right to steer, tilt the Wii Wheel in mid-air to
glide or to adjust pitch for perfect landings, swing the Wii Wheel in
circular motions around boost bars to build up speed and press the A
Button to activate items or to cash in hands in Poker Mode. Note: The
Wii Wheel accessory is recommended but not required to race. Wii Remote
controllers can be used on their own as well.
Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Just as in Excite Truck,
drivers can hit blocks that morph the terrain before their eyes and
create ramps from which players can launch mega-jumps. Players can aim
for and swing around boost bars or open presents that unleash a variety
of wild items, such as bottle rocket boosts or clacker mouths that chomp
on other racers to slow them down. Players also can activate in-race
Soccer: Drive into the soccer ball and attempt to hit it into the goal.
Bowling: Drive through the pins and attempt to get a strike.
Darts: Line up your bot and let the dart fly. Try to hit bull's-eye in
Clowns: Hit the clown in the face with a pie by throwing it at just
the right angle and speed.
Sandwiches: Drive through the ingredients in the proper order to make
a delicious sandwich.
