Autoduel is a 1985 computer role-playing game (CRPG) published by Origin Systems for the Atari 400 and Atari 800 (and other Atari 8-bits with OS "Transformer"), Commodore 64, Apple II series, Mac, and DOS. It was released in 1987 for the Atari ST and in 1988 for the Amiga. It was based on the Steve Jackson Games series Car Wars which also includes the GURPS Autoduel worldbook.
Hmm, according to wikipedia, it is a RPG. Thought it was.
I don't know how gritty full auto was but when I was young, I enjoyed the hell out of autoduel and its gritty car battles in the suburbs. There really was a role playing aspect to AUTO DUEL and its gameplay that's totally amiss in today's market. A lot of the current market driving games are adrenaline fueled race fests (burnout/nfs), driving sims or PGR4/FORZA driving games, and its high time we get a racing duel game done right.
