Technology[edit | edit source]
F-1 is based on electromechanical (em) projection technology. The race track is a pre-rendered animation stored on film and projected on the screen. The player's opponents and the player themselves are static transparent pieces within the machine that are also projected on the screen. Steering and collision are done through direct mechanical control.
This game is the first and only projection game released by Atari. It also was the first game licensed from Namco by Atari, a practice that would increase by the early 80's.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The player steers a car around a race track, trying to avoid all cars.
