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.

I think it's been said many times, but needs to be said again. The 8bit computer era had a dearth of games and game ideas that I think would flourish with a current gen face lift or sequel: Auto Duel, Mail Order Monsters, Wasteland, PSI-5 Trading Company, Racing Destruction Set are some just off the top of my head. They did a great job with Pirates just as one example and there should be more.

By the way, remember SSI's Road War 2000? I never played it, but I certainly remember magazine ads it for back in the day.

I'd like to see a next gen Interstate 76. My ideal game needs tons of players, maybe 32-64 players, full customization, co-pilot/gunner positions, different scenarios (destroy/protect the fuel tanker ala Road Warrior, race, etc), realistic physics.

DIPRIP is pretty good for a free HL2 mod on the PC

But yeah all someone needs to do is take Flatout UC and add guns

You know, I'd give up if I were you. There isn't anything that's going to stop people from calling these consoles "Next Gen" until the ACTUAL next generation of consoles is out.

The Flatout series (1/2/UC) has good Destruction Derby style events, with powerups and all.


Also, Speed Racer and even Mario Kart (and its assortment of copycats battle kart racers). Or are those not gritty enough for you? :D

Keep fighting the good fight, I'm with you.


As others have mentioned, pretty much the only game that's been announced for current-gen (PS3) has been Twisted Metal. And it looks like the driving portions of RAGE, announced for current-gen consoles (PS360 - and the PC) will have a battle element to them as well.

I believe the arcade version of the original got banned from arcades.

The movie was pretty bad though.
Especially the part where "Frankenstein" is said to be wearing a mask because he's so horribly disfigured, and when he takes it off in dramatic scene it's just plain old Carradine with no make-up or any special effect whatsoever.

You know, Autoduel is one of those games I've always meant to play, but never found a copy of. I knew of it ages ago, when my Atari computer wasn't ENTIRELY out of date -- it was a 1 year old Atari XE Game System!

definitely check out the remake (movie). its OTT and very fun viewing. Statham is kickass in it. More fun to me than CRANK.


the key thinking missing in all the listed car carnage titles is a role playing aspect. I think it'll add a certain factor missing from all these games at the moment. Twisted Metal is neat but without a focus on one central character (you), its more akin to a fighting game with cars. The car combat is spot on though.

PERSISTENT WORLD + CAR COMBAT + RPG ELEMENTS = AWESOMENESS!

Wasn't there a VERY old PC game (like 96-97 old) that wasn't Carmageddon and let you run around on a car or by foot blowing up stuff in "arenas" and picking up items and the like?

PD: It wasn't Death Rally. Environments were 3D.

Death Track Resurrection english version is coming out soon. It's not very good, but at least it's better than these shitty console franchises listed.

it had no terrain/veg..etc but you know what, the incar view seemed to look just right (as did the racing). The shooting/gunplay also seemed spot on. wow. I was kind of impressed.

Too bad statham's not big enough a name for the filmmakers to rally behind and release a licensed title/game.

To heck with a next-gen Autoduel, I want a next-gen Death Race. They can make it a special 32nd anniversary edition or something.

I did. I'm one of the few Paul Anderson fans out there. Not as "good" as the original, but fun in its own way.
