RPG Spotlight: Autoduel

Originally released for the Apple II and Atari 8-bit platforms by ORIGIN Systems (and designed by none other than founders Richard Garriott and Chuck Bueche) in 1985, Autoduel is a post-apocalyptic vehicular combat game that effectively combines the action and RPG genres. Based on Steve Jackson's Car Wars boardgame/RPG and set in the same post-nuclear future, the game puts you in the shoes of a driver seeking to become a famed "autoduellist" by "driving offensively" through the cities and across the freeways of the northeastern United States in the year 2030. This future houses a cruel world where outlaws and cycle gangs rule the highways, and surviving it is going to require a lot of armor, a lot of firepower, and some serious driving skills.
