Welcome to my guide for Driver on the GameBoy Color. I hope you like this 
game as much as I did. If you like this, then try Driver on the Playstation 
also if you don't have it yet. In Driver you play as Tanner, a cop who goes 
undercover to work for the crime underworld. The game is set in the 70's, and 
most of the vehicles are muscle cars. You drive around true to life cities 
and complete jobs in order to find the head of the crime underworld. The 
three cities, Miami, Los Angeles and New York are modeled true to life and 
are excellently detailed. For some reason San Francisco was left out of the 
GameBoy game, but the other three cities are just fine. Driver 2 is set for a 
fall/early winter release and will have 4 new cities, Chicago, Las Vegas, 
Havana and Rio De Janero. Well that's all for this introduction, I hope you 
like the guide. If you have any questions, comments or corrections please

Driving Games:

This info was taken from the Driver instruction booklet. 

Cross Town Checkpoint: Select the city you want to race across. Once the game 
starts you'll have to race from checkpoint to checkpoint in the fastest time 
possible. The waypoints are detailed on the city map, but you'll also have an 
arrow on-screen pointing you in the right direction. Once you successfully 
reach the first flag a second will be shown on the map, and so on until you 
complete the level. The faster the time, the better. There are two checkpoint 
games in each city.

Getaway: At the start of each getaway a cop is on your tail immediately. You 
must lose him by any means necessary. The quicker you lose the cop, the 
better. There are two getaway games in each city.

Pursuit: Choose the city you want to drive in. Once you start you'll have to 
chase the lead car as it tries to out-maneuver, out-brake and out-wit you 
across the streets, parks and alleyways.

Survival: How long can you survive against a barrage of veteran cops, 
dedicated to taking you in, whatever the financial cost of replacing damaged 
cop cars? The idea is to survive as long as possible. The longer you survive, 
the better.
