From Sep 1982 to Aug 1986, Universal Television aired Knight Rider, an action-based adventure starring David Hasselhoff as a field operative for the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG), intent on helping the "innocent, helpless, and powerless" against the criminal element. The real star of the show, however, was a futuristic-styled Pontiac Trans Am, the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), featuring a talking computer. Netherlands-based developer Davilex Games resurrects the characters, cars, and action of the 1980s series, putting the player behind the wheel of KITT in Knight Rider: The Game.
Three difficulty options (easy, normal, and hard) determine the damage tolerance, duration of parts, and level of opponent aggression in the 15-mission campaign covering ten unique tracks. The KITT super car comes equipped with various capabilities including turbo boost, ski mode, night vision, microwave jammers, scanning ability, and targeting functions. Fans of the television show will recognize featured characters and enemies, such as KITT's evil double KARR (Knight Automated Roving Robot), Devon Miles (head of FLAG), and Goliath, a high-tech truck built by nemesis Garth used for mayhem and destruction.
