Description official descriptions

Night Driver is an action racing game which takes place at night! Your goal is to score as many points as possible by racing through one of four different tracks. Points are scored by passing checkpoints located throughout the track. If your car crashes into the side of the road, oncoming cars, or any other obstacles, you will lose all of your speed and a lot of time! The game ends when the 90 second time limit is up. The four tracks you can choose from are beginner, pro, expert, and random (this track is different every time and can not be memorized like the other three). Several game options are included which allows you to select whether or not other cars will honk before entering the screen, and choose between a 90 second or infinite amount of time for a game.

Night Driver was based on an image of a 1976 German arcade machine titled Nurburgring-Powerslide created by Dr-Ing. Reiner Foerst. Dave Shepperd was handed a piece of paper with a picture of the Nurburgring cabinet and the screen with the little white squares road which inspired Night Driver.
