Driving Demon is a Racing/Action video game created by Funware for the TI-99/4A. It was distributed on Solid State SoftwareTM Command Module during the second quarter of 1983. The original retail price for Driving Demon was $32.95 (USD).
The player controls a white car located toward the bottom center of the playing area as the game begins. The player uses the joystick to control the white car down the track, pushing forward to speed up, backward to slow down, and using the fire button to change gears up as necessary. The game will automatically shift down when necessary. The track is a straight track with no twists and turns. The object of the game is to drive as quickly and as far as possible before time expires. The player starts the game with five lives. Players lose lives when they crash into other players, run off the road, hit an oil slick on the road, or run the engine too high causing it to explode. At the right of the road is located a radar map of the road ahead of the player, giving him/her some idea of the number of other cars needed to pass. Unlike many TI-99/4A video games, Driving Demon does require the use of a remote control.
