Night Driver is a first-person racing arcade game, that was developed by Micronetics for Atari, Inc. in 1976; it utilizes a Motorola M6502 microprocessor (running at: 1.008 MHz), and the player must use a steering wheel and a 4-position gear shifter to take control of a virtual car, along with a single pedal to make it accelerate. As in Midway's Midnite Racer (which was released at the same time), the sides of the road are represented by white blocks - and the player must try and stay upon the road, as long as possible, without crashing (if he does, the text "OFF THE ROAD. WAIT FOR THE TOW TRUCK." will appear on the screen). The player's time will also be extended, if he reaches 350 points; there is also three tracks to choose from ("Novice, "Expert", and "Pro"), but it is not easy to tell which one is which.
