XoverstarX (pronounced as "ex-over-star-ex") is a crossover game by APIM Group, Inc. Like Elite Fisticuffs, and many other games, it is a sort of an author appeal game (known as a so-called "Umbrella Game"), with some of the creator's favorite characters being playable. Unlike said games, it is a racing, featuring a small assortment of vehicles, making the game also similar to Diddy Kong Racing. It will be released for the APIM Hanabi.


The gameplay will differ between vehicles. There are three choices of vehicles: the Kart, the Boat and the Plane.

Kart racing is the same as in a Mario Kart game: A is to accelerate, B is to brake or drive backwards, the left Circle Pad is to steer, L can be used for items while R is for doing tricks or drifting. When the player drifts, he/she is able to do a Power Slide, which can result in a Mini Turbo. Tricks can be done on small ramps and edges, and when touching the ground, the player gets a Mini Turbo.

Boat racing has the player's character in a speedboat, with similar controls to kart racing, except the drifting will go automatically and the R button only provides tricks, while Y does get a new function: going into Sub Mode. When a meter known as the Dive Gauge gets full, the player uses Y to let its speedboat change into a submarine and dive underwater. When underwater, the Dive gauge will slowly empty itself, and when empty, the player will go back to the water surface, while the submarine will turn back into a speedboat. The player can fill the Dive Gauge with Coins in both modes.

In Sub Mode, the steering and the R button are the only things that will be different: the player can now go in any direction, and R provides drifting again. The player can go to the surface early by going up on the Circle Pad or by pressing Y. Sometimes, the player can't go into Sub Mode when the depth is too low. Some courses disable Sub Mode completely.

Plane racing provides a similar control scheme as in Sub Mode of boat racing. This time, the right Circle pad gets a function: steering Left or Right while pressing R will provide a Barrel Roll while steering Up while pressing R will provide a Somersault. Going into a ring while doing a Somersault provides a Mini Turbo.

In all three modes, players collect Coins to enhance their speed and pick up Item Boxes to use items against their opponents. Each mode has four Tours, with four courses each, having a total of 48 courses.


For detailed stat information, see Characters

There are 42 different playable characters, minus the Downloadable characters.


Classes determine how the character controls in his/her vehicle in overall. There are a total of eight classes, each with different stats.

  • The Balanced characters always have average stats. No downsides, no upsides.
  • The Speed-class consist of characters who have speed as their best stat. They are either worse at making curves, or lighter.
  • The Skill-class contain characters who are great at making curves. Some of them are light-weighted or slow, though.
  • The Strength-classed character are usually heavy. These are either slow or are bad with the curves.
  • The Speed-Balanced class is a more balanced version of Speed. A little slower, but also a little better at curves, or heavier.
  • The Skill-Balanced class is a more balanced version of Skill. A little worse at curves, but also a little heavier, or faster.
  • The Strength-Balanced class is a more balanced version of Strength. A little lighter, but also a little faster, or better at curves.
  • The Tricky characters have some crazy stats. They always differ per character, having sometimes many pros and one con.


There are 18 different Default Characters.

Ferb works together with Phineas on almost impossible projects, but they always work due to their intelligence. Ferb is the silent one of the duo. Perry looks like an ordinary platypus, but he's actually a secret agent. Please don't ask how he wears a fedora with his owners in sight in this game.

The toughest and roughest sister of the PowerPuff Girls. So do not mess with her or her sisters. Or talk about her green cloth. The Goddess of Nature will show everyone how harsh the nature actually is. By the way, we've convinced her that all the vehicles are environment-friendly. Admiral of the Robo-Pirates, who would succeeded to conquer the Glade if Rayman wasn't there. We've had to disappoint him that our vehicles do not crush the environment. Usually a referee in Mario Kart and professional Spiny Egg tosser, Lakitu joins in to take the cup... to the skies! This Pokémon is very nice, as it helps people from drowning in the sea. He could circle the globe in 16 hours, but he knows that's against the rules in this game. The protector of Pushopolis makes a surprise appearance in XoverstarX. His strong sense of justice makes him overconfident sometimes.
