Laguna Racer is a racing arcade game, which was released by Midway Games in 1977; it utilizes an Intel 8080 microprocessor (running at 1.9968 MHz), and the player must use a steering wheel to take up control of a car (with a single pedal to make it accelerate and a gear shifter to switch between low and high gear). Your score is measured in "miles" (you will get 000.1 point for every metre travelled), and as with many other early Midway games, the gameplay is time-based as opposed to life-based - and it'll get extended, if you manage to score a certain amount of points before the timer has run out. You also have to watch out for CPU-controlled cars upon the track; if you crash into one, your speed (indicated at the bottom of the screen, like in Midnite Racer) will be reduced to 0 mph, and you'll have to shift the car back into low gear to regain your lost speed before shifting into high gear again.
