Dodgem is a car race in a two-dimensional maze.
Drive your car to collect all the dots avoiding the enemy cars. To move to the next level, you must collect all the dots.
Enemies change by a maximum of one lane. When your speed is low, you can aim for a lane two levels away.

Dodgem cannot be played on a smartphone with a screen that is too small. It is rather recommended for a tablet. Click here to play Dodgem


Dodgem is a video game created for the Atari 2600. It is a reproduction of the arcade game Head On from Sega. This arcade game is one of the first games I discovered. I must have been eleven or twelve years old. I was playing in a bar where the mythical Space Invader was also.

It is undoubtedly one of the reasons that made me want to do computer science, yet I waited a long time before recreating it. I hope you enjoy this dive into the genesis of video games.
