Anyone know how to get this actually working using Altirra? Preferably with the 64k Version.

Of all the XL games I played, I think this was the most impressive technically thanks to it's impressive graphics, speed and open world nature where one was free to explore at ones own pace. Great fun sometimes loading it up to mess around a la GTA, shooting and watching the buildings collapse.

Despite that, I did manage to complete this entirely without any help or hints. Took a long time to crack it but it felt wonderful when I finally escaped and won. A stunning achievement for it's time. I didn't play the follow up because by then I couldn't get hold of it but did play later episodes on the Amiga which were graphically superior but never quite the same for me though I enjoyed them. A definite ten out of ten... better still it used to wind my miseryguts Dad up... he'd see me playing it and groan "oh no... not this one again!" It bored him stuff watching me play this.

This was a complete non-linear classic, there were no limits, you have an entire planet to explore, but only 1 city, but you never know what you might find in the wildness. You could Fly, Drive or walk, even explore secret underground complexs, and if thats not enough you can always explore the sky!

So much places to visit... in a so small memory footprint... Amazing !
One of my favorites games, with shadow of the beast (amiga),ElektraGlide and Silent Service (microprose).

I went to the Birmingah User Group with the guys that programmed this game. They would turn up and show us every week, how much of the game they had done. Happy days.

What a great game! I spent HOURS with this thing.
Try skydiving: Get the CHEESE, fly up to the space station. Get out. Take cheese, jump off. Wheeeeeee!
