Car Wars is one of my favorite old games. I don't really have a good reason for that, as with what I remember of it, it's quite simple and not great gameplay wise. For instance, the one thing I remember is that the Security Seven always wins. Mind you, I haven't played it in 20 years. That said, how would you do it? Thinking of combat only (not any metagame, which would be pretty easy to make interesting) - I would use top down 2d or 3d, with the car controlled with WASD, space, etc and the turrets controlled either by AI or by the mouse. My problem is, even if you totally nail it with a GTA1-style overhead car engine and gameplay, does the Security Seven still win? How is it interesting?
