Atari’s Night Driver is a properly old game which had you driving on a pitch-black road, avoiding cars and staying on the road with little more than some white “lights” to keep you on track.
Fast-forward 40 years (40!) and the publisher has decided to take another crack at the retro game, with a shiny new mobile version of Night Driver.
Its had a fresh lick of paint, and there’s some new control schemes to contend with now that you’re using a touchscreen but based on our brief time with it at GDC, it should satisfy any cravings you may have for a super-retro arcade racer.
Cruising for a bruising
The new edition of Night Driver is keeping things fairly close to the original, mostly in its arcade feel and ease of access.
The objective is still the same – steer your car around a night road, avoiding traffic and making sure you don’t accidentally smack into the walls on your way.
