Well, it tries to be Pole Position—it proved to be quite a technically challinging port for the Intellivision. It almost makes me a little more forgiving of Turbo. Almost.

Screen Shots

Pole Position is one of INTV Corp.'s rare misses. The graphics are OK, but the Intellivision controller just breaks down horribly for this kind of game. I have a horrible time playing this game - but at least it's better than Turdo, er, I mean Turbo. My hunch is that if I'd ever get good enough to qualify for more time, I'd see more graphics that looked nice. The sound is OK, but not incredible. As an arcade port, this one is tough to give high marks to mostly because of the extremely difficult control. Four different tracks are available to choose from - I can't recall how many there were in the original arcade version.
