Description

Pole Position for the Atari 2600 is the 1983 port by Atari of the 1982 Namco arcade game of the same name. It's not a great port, but it's useful to compare with the Atari 7800 version of Pole Position II (video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pxx0VzlQz3Q). Controls are quite odd, with no button to accelerate - that happens automatically - the fire button being used to brake and up and down being used for gears. The game is running on my Atari 7800, captured using a Hauppage WinTV HVR 900H (using the WinTV 8 software). Sound is captured by my Olympus DS-40 dictaphone and mixed with the video using Vidiot.
