|You are a world class spy driving for your life in your ultra-equipped|
turbo-charged spy mobile. The road is crawling with Enemy Agents bent on
your destruction. They'll stop at nothing...so neither can you!
Manoeuvre your car with all the speed and skill you can, always watching
for the Road Lord, the Switch Blade, the Enforcer and other Enemy Agents
as they try to stop you cold on land and water. You must destroy them before
they destroy you!
Screen And Gameplay
Your Spy Hunter adventure game starts as the Weapons Van rolls up from the
bottom of the screen and pulls over to the shoulder of the road. The van
stops and your Spy Car rolls out of the back, armed with machine guns. You
then manoeuvre your car onto the road as the action begins.
The road will branch and fork as you go. You must be careful as you dodge
and chase enemy agents not to swerve off the road. If you do, you'll lose one
of your Spy Cars. When you lose a Spy Car and you still have Spy Cars in
reserve, a Weapons Van appears from the bottom of the screen and pulls over
to the road shoulder to let the new Spy Car roll out of the back onto the
road for more action. If you have no remaining Spy Cars, the game is over.
The terrain will change as you traverse the course. Screen backgrounds will
change colour as indication of a new terrain. As the course continues, you'll
come to a waterway. Here your Spy Car enters a boathouse and automatically
becomes amphibious and skims along the surface of the water. Don't think
you're safe. The water is teeming with other Enemy Agents.
There is also a stretch of bridges and a stretch of Icy Road in other
A Weapons Van appears on the road, ready to supply your Spy Car with the
appropriate new weapon. To gain access to the new weapons, you must "dock"
with the Weapons Van. To do this, allow the Van to pass you, then get
behind it and drive up into it. The Van will automatically let the Spy Car
roll out once the weapons have been transferred.
The weapons you have available to you at any given time are displayed at the
bottom right of the screen.
You can also use your Spy Car to destroy some enemy agents by ramming them
off the road for points.
