Test Drive: Eve of Destruction is a video game that was developed by Monster Games in 2004 and published by Atari. The game was published as Driven to Destruction in Europe.

The game is based on the American sport of Demolition Derby, as the game is set in the United States and features old American vehicles. Thus, it is on a similar platform to the Demolition Racer: No Exit and Destruction Derby games.

There are vehicles that include hearses, buses, ambulances, taxis, and other vehicles.



There are 25 events in career mode, including Figure-8 races, Figure-8 Jump Races, Standard races, Suicide Races (the competitors are divided in tour and run the track in opposite directions) Trailer Races, and School Bus Races. Demolition Derbys and Push-Off events are designed with only one goal- destroy all other cars. However, in the push-off events, in which the event takes place on a raised platform, the player may make twice as much points by pushing cars off, instead of just wrecking them. The Deathmatch and Capture the Flag are multiplayer only events, as is Car Soccer. There are also novelty races such as the gauntlet, where a lone hearse must complete a race without being destroyed by a horde of other cars; Detention, where an invincible bus must stop all cars from finishing; and Survival, in which the player must complete a point-to-point race in 60 seconds while the other cars try to destroy them.
