Have the UK’s rising petrol costs coupled with potential tax benefits got you thinking about purchasing an electronic vehicle? With each new model coming out, Tesla is definitely cementing its spot as the industry leader when it comes to electronic vehicles.
As a testament to their world domination, Tesla has expanded access to its Supercharger network to eight European countries. If you’re still on the fence on whether or not an EV is for you AND you happen to be an avid gamer, this might definitely tip the scales in favour of EVs. Did you know that you can also play games in the Tesla Arcade? Here are five arcade games you can play:
This game will definitely bring back memories of your old Atari in the 1980s. Missile Command is an arcade game where the goal is to protect six cities from ballistic missiles. This game is a superb illustration of the Cold War’s impact on popular culture and one of the great masterpieces from the Golden Age of Arcade Games. Missile Command is an excellent infotainment addition on Tesla vehicles, thanks to the enormous touch screens positioned in the vehicle’s centre.
Here is another Atari classic that was released in 1978. Super Breakout is an arcade game that recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. The goal is clear out the wall of bricks using bouncing balls. The players control a paddle that helps them manoeuvre the ball in three different game modes: double, cavity and progressive. Tesla players can play the game via the touchscreens or buttons on the steering wheel for that real gaming console feel.
Texas Hold’em is one of the most widely played poker variants making it no surprise that it found its way to Tesla’s list of games. In this game, players are dealt two personal cards called “hole”. In order to win the game, players will have to create different combinations like pairs, royal flushes and a full house. Their combinations may make use of their own hole as well as the cards that come out from the flop – cards dealt by the virtual dealer.
This game is another poker variant that is similar to Texas Hold’em in terms of gameplay. The goal is to make the best possible five-card hand using two hole cards and three community cards. Omaha poker starts with four personal hole cards, instead of the two players get in Texas Hold’em. These cards are kept hidden from the other players, and players can place bets on whether they believe they will end up with the best hand. Another difference between the two popular games is that in Omaha Poker, players are required to use exactly two of their four hole cards when making a play.
BEACH BUGGY RACING 2
This list cannot be complete without this type of game. A racing game on a Tesla is just a match made in motorway heaven. Beach Buggy Racing 2 is a non-licensed karting game that offers split-screen play on all devices, making it perfect for multiplayer. Unlike the other games in the Tesla Arcade, Beach Buggy Racing 2 has direct wiring to the car’s steering wheel and brake pedal. This allows the player to breeze through the game’s 22 featured tracks with the most authentic feel. Talk about next-level gaming!
