Atari Brings Back Night Driver, Sort Of
« on: February 26, 2018, 23:51:20 PM »
Released in arcades in 1976, Atari’s original Night Driver is an outstanding example of doing more with less, simulating first-person driving through nothing more than a series of scrolling rectangles. The new Night Driver, coming soon to Android and iOS, looks like any other mobile racing game.

Here’s the official description of the new Night Driver:

Inspired by the original, Night Driver offers a range of different slick and powerful vehicles that players can race down the illuminated highway in an exhilarating wild ride under the night sky. Upgrade and enhance your car’s look, performance and style in this reimagined arcade revival that features breathtaking locations, a 360 degree showroom and multiple game modes.

Cool trailer but the actual game doesn't look like anything special.

No, it's just another mobile driving game and bears no resemblance to the original.  I wish they had tried to stick to the original formula even if for part of the game.

Interesting but mobile is where the money is for Atari these days. Long as they have real money coming in then they might release more retro stuff.
