Starsky & Hutch last edited by bundle85 on 09/29/20 05:02PM View full history


Set out as if it were the television show, Starsky & Hutch takes place over 'three seasons'. Each level played essentially serves as an episode and players receive a rating based on their skill at completing each episode. This rating is called a Viewer Rating, yet another reference to Starsky & Hutch's prior incarnation as a television show.

Players are advised not to hit civilians, crash into buildings or cause any negative unrest as that will lower the viewer rating. Performing certain stunts, such as driving through boxes and shooting special VR power-ups will result in the Viewer Rating remaining high. Throughout the three seasons, the players objectives are to catch criminals and occasionally escort other vehicles.

The music for the game was written by Tim Follin and features the same style of the soundtrack to the 70's show including Tom Scott's Gotcha theme, as well as trends of the 70's, the time in which the game is set.
