This is a capture of a game of Pole Position I played on an Atari 65XE 8-bit computer. The computer and games (I have 10 others, amongst them classics like Asteroids and Space Invaders) I bought at a flea market for 1 euro! The joystick is a bit worn, so that may cause my somewhat flimsy steering.
Notice the oddities of the Atari racing car: it never runs out of fuel, tires never wear, but it explodes on impact. However, you get a brand new car each time you screwed up a bit! The car only has brakes (fire button) and a gear shift (joystick forward/backwards), full throttle is applied automatically. Steering is by pushing the joystick to the left or right, so you either drive forward or apply full lock!
