Good game all around fun.
Más de 20 años pasaron para entender como jugarlo. Años buscando los manuales y recien ahora doy con ellos.
One of those timeless classics which always had one thinking "oh, I'll have another go!" and always trying to pass through that port thing to go into the water sequences. Involved a lot of skill and trickery and was a pretty zippy game for it's time. Very impressive and hugely replayable.

I thought the Atari 800 version of Spy Hunter was better than the NES version. One of the best arcade racers of the 80s, always challenging, always fast, and always fun to smack into enemy cars and see them crash. Every driving game should let you crash the other cars.
A very good arcade conversion, even including Henry Mancini's iconic theme from "Peter Gunn" playing throughout. The graphics and sound are well done, adding to the fun while you're speeding through the roads trying to avoid enemies all around.
There's one annoying bug that pops up every-so-often: after you crash your car or boat, your weapons van is nowhere to be seen (even when you have extra cars in reserve), thus putting the game in a no-win situation.
Another quirk (easter egg?), one that's also in the C-64 edition, is after your car is deployed from the weapons van, if you move the car to the far right of the screen, you and run its course on the terrain without worrying about crashing. You don't get any points, but this comes in very handy for the hard-to-steer icy road conditions. Just ride it out and once it becomes clear again, drive onto the road.
This version seems to be similar to the version of C64...
