Stocker is a racing arcade game that was released by Bally and Sente in 1984; it was the seventh of the original batch of eight games to run upon the company's SAC-I hardware and the second to have an ending. The player must use a steering wheel to take control of a stock car which is being chased by the police, with a single pedal to make it accelerate, and a 2-position gear shifter to make it switch between low and high gear - and, as well as avoiding all those chasing police cars, it must also avoid oncoming traffic and drive through gas stations to refuel. If it runs out of gas (or if the appropriate dip switch is set to "on", it receives three speeding tickets), the game will be over; however, if it makes it to the end, you will receive a safe driving bonus of 6000 points, along with a maximum of 4000 more bonus points for the amount of remaining gas. A sequel called Night Stocker was released in 1986 - and it gave the gameplay a first-person view (with a lightgun for aiming), but did not have an ending.
