APB is an also a great arcade game released by Atari in 1987. You played a rookie police office who had to cruise the city in your patrol car, pulling over people for various infractions. You could apprehend most miscreants by use of your siren, but for the real low-lifes and thugsyou sometimes had no choice but to use a little hot lead persuasion. You also had the responsibility of collecting enough fuel to keep your cruiser running, as well as not crashing into innocent bystanders, and collecting the occasional donut for bonus points.

APB was designed and programmed by Dave Theurer. Sadly, it turned out to be his last game for Atari, and he left the company shortly after it's release.
