Re: (For fun) Taking a look back at the Mustang Mach III
I remember the first racing game I played at the arcade. You had a wheel to turn and a pedal for gas. The screen showed an overhead view of the track and 'cars', as though you were in the Goodyear blimp. The cars were merely smoothed rectangles with four smaller rectangles at each corner to indicate wheels. You raced these cars around the track, trying to remember that when the car was heading towards the lower part of the screen, you needed to turn the steering wheel in the opposite direction.
later I played Al Unser jr.'s racing game on the nintendo, as well as one called Bump & Jump, which you had to try to crash other cars off the road, and remember to jump over walls when they appeared. Now that was a fun game!
