Death Race 1976

Postby matmico399 » February 20th, 2017, 4:49 pm

Yes the first video game to ever cause controversy. Long before Mortal Kombat, Night Trap or GTA. I used to really enjoy this game as a kid. I see the O2 has a homebrew. But has this ancient game ever been released as bonus content on another console or something. Obv the 2600 would be ideal with the paddle controllers. But finding this on any platform would be a coup. Thanks!

Not that I know of beyond the homebrew.

Another interesting early discrete tech mid 70s video arcade game is 'Shark JAWS' by Atari. There are spiritual successors, but not really attempts to make a facsimile of the game. Because there is no program, I don't think Mame is an option either.

Someone has been working on a simulator for Atari's discrete logic arcade games, including Shark Jaws.
