This game is really starting to grow on me

The arcade, while having some elements of Spy Hunter, is really much different from the arcade ports.

Visually the AtariST and Amiga are the same with a disappointing smaller screen.
However, the sprite work and colours are fabulous!

The AtariST has disappointing sound effects like the 8-bit versions. The Amiga has imaginative effects with meaty explosions!

Finally, the gameplay can be frustrating as your motorcycle can be tossed around.
However, there is a strategy: stay within the traffic, close enough to shot them down and watch your back.!
I suddenly was making progress and having fun while not relying on cheats.

Recommended with the Amiga having much better sound.
But, the AtariST still having gorgeous graphics and fun gameplay.
