Game Play

The player races against the clock to accumulate points for distance covered driving around a 2-D track. The car will spin out if it runs into the "pylons" (white blips) along the side of the road. There are also a few "oil slicks" (dark patches) on the course where the car's direction of travel cannot be manipulated.

The vehicle must pass check points in order. When the timer reaches 0, the player can compare his score to a small chart on the machine for a play rating.

Although the manual says that the controls accurately simulate a 'real automobile', the claim is not quite true. The car changes direction while the steering wheel is being turned. When you stop turning the steering wheel, the car continues straight in its current direction (not quite like a real car).

Trivia

The first driving video game. The first game to use ROM memory. The game PCB is interchangeable with Atari's LeMans game. The only difference between the two is the gear stick. Gran Trak 10 has a 3-speed with reverse while LeMans has a 4-speed.

Cabinet Information

This machine weighs quite a bit. The brochure says 400 lbs!
