The Spy Hunter wiki last edited by Xander51 on 03/17/13 09:16AM View full history


Spy Hunter is a vehicle-based vertical scrolling shooter. The player can control the speed of the scrolling by accelerating or decelerating their car. The stages are a series of seamlessly connected highways full of traffic, enemy cars, and road hazards for the player to either shoot or avoid. Occasionally a red truck will appear and if the player can drive into it, they get a new gadget to use on enemies.

The game uses the Peter Gunn theme as its soundtrack, and has twitchy controls and a pointedly brutal level of difficulty. Enemy spawns are random, and many enemies can kill the player instantly through weapons or collisions. During the first part of the game, a timer ticks down in the corner of the screen, and while its going the player gets unlimited lives. After the timer completes, the game moves to a traditional life-based system.
