Description Edit | History

"Pole Position is a racing video game released in 1982 by Namco. It was published by Namco in Japan and by Atari, Inc. in the United States. The game popularized the use of sprite-based, pseudo-3D graphics with its "rear-view racer format" where the player’s view is behind and above the vehicle, looking forward along the road with the horizon in sight which would remain in use even after true 3D computer graphics became standard for racing games."
