Kids Race and Battle the Nano V2 with Innovation First’s Thrilling, Free, Mobile Game

Innovation First International, creators of the internationally popular HEXBUG® brand, in cooperation with developer Behaviour Interactive, today announced the launch of HEXBUG Havoc on the Apple App Store. HEXBUG Havoc, the free-to-play mobile game, allows HEXBUG fans to experience and interact with their favorite micro robotic creatures in a whole new, daring way!

“This game will bring fans even closer to the fun of HEXBUG’s playful, adventurous robotic creatures,” said Bob Mimlitch, III co-founder and chief technology officer of Innovation First International. “The new platform is a fun, free complement to our existing robotic toys, allowing users to easily take their HEXBUGs on the go, while leaving their tracks and physical bugs at home. The game is also totally addictive.”

At the start of each mission, players choose their own Nano V2 before exploring their way through endless horizontal tracks and vertical tubes filled with collectibles, power-ups, obstacles, and… enemy HEXBUGs! Players will need to travel fast and far to unlock new track pieces, complete missions, and confront electrifying surprises around each and every turn.

In addition to traversing the auto-generated race track, the fast-paced gaming experience includes a number of fun features, such as:

  • Intuitive swipe, tap, and jump controls
  • Rewarding battle missions
  • A wide-range of different tracks and Nano V2 elements to explore and unlock as you play
  • The ability to steal battery life and take down HEXBUGs blocking your path by bumping them aside or ramming them off the track

HEXBUG Havoc players can access the app through Game Center, challenge their friends, and post their scores to Facebook and Twitter. HEXBUG Havoc can be played on any of the following devices: iPhone (4 or later), iPad (2 or later), iPad Mini, and iPod Touch (4 or later).

Mom with a dot com Reviews HEXBUG

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Mom with a dot com had the chance to test and review the HEXBUG Nano Glows in the Dark Habitat Set.  Here are her thoughts:

Hexbugs are such a great item! My family is very much into innovation, electronics, physics and just how things work. These miniature robotic bugs were such a hit with all of us (yes, even us adults). They have such an assortment to choose from: crabs, inchworms, ants, nanos, spiders, larva and the scarab. They also offer habitats for these little robotic creatures to play around in.

The HEXBUG Lava was recently reviewed by Mama Chocolate:

I was impressed with how fast they move, and that they work on carpet and hard surfaces. The Larva does exactly what it says it should: it wiggles and slithers and avoids obstacles without needing to touch them.
