Atari A to Z: Pole Position

You don’t just play Pole Position — you FEEL it!

Thus ran the back-of-box blurb for the official Atari 8-bit conversion of Namco’s classic “vanishing point” racer — one of the most important, influential video games of all time. Said conversion was extremely solid, and a big hit for my whole family back in the day.

  1. For a long time this version of Pole Position was all I knew of as far as racing games were concerned and I loved it! Back then I did think the car graphics and billboards were a little too chunky when compared to similar games like Pitstop but thanks to YouTube where you can see it in motion against other 8bit computer versions the tradeoff was a good call because the track and movement seem far better.
