Shoot gangster cars or push them out from the road (or from the bridge!;) and visit your home-truck (Knight Rider style!) to get more weapons. It´s very nice feeling to push button to drop lots of OIL to road to make enemy cars spin behind!! And ride to boat in the river!

Whole game is vertically scrolling type, so it´s easier to convert colourful backdrops. 5:o)

Thought I hope MSX version could have longer version of Peter Gunn theme...  ;)

Atari ST and Amiga had very good Spy Hunter clone called "Major Motion" in their early days.  :)

AGREEEEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!   ;) 8)

Thought arcade has better sound hardware than our AY, good AY composer (with GOOD composer program) :guitar: can make Psg Gunn theme sound nearly as good as original arcade me thinks! sjp:)

Arcade´s tune is something really awesome.... !  :o :)

Yes, Spy Hunter is an all time classic!. Afaik there is a Colecovision official conversion of the game (it seems it is like crap :'()... perhaps someone out there could make a 'direct' port for MSX?.  ???

I forgot to mention that I had the original SPY HUNTER arcade at home, with the gorgeous steering controler, pedals and all. I really enjoyed it! Later, Operation Wolf, Phoenix and others came. At the moment, I only owe an original Scramble arcade by Konami, but I should fix part of the video board.  ;)

I HAD (note the past tense) a pletora of original arcade games at home. My father was for a while a salesperson of a little arcade distribution company, and our cellar was a kind of warehouse. Of course, all of my friends and me spent many afternoons right there, playing them till late in the evening. At the moment, I can remember PHOENIX, BLACK TIGER, SILK WORM, OPERATION WOLF, a japanese game with unknown title, PAC-MAN (cocktail mode, not cabinet) and SCRAMBLE. I still owe this one, it was a present of the company director.  ;)

 :o :o

PHOENIX is one of my all time favourites shmups!, this one and PLEIADS are true classics for me!. SCRAMBLE it's another classic (the first shmup ever), I really love the bubling sound of the game :)

How much can cost an original arcade now?. I'll give a look on eBay right now...

Haven´t played that coleco version, but it looks like there could be added some more colours in it.  :)

Is there a speed-boat in coleco version?

Spy Hunter is a very good game and easily portable to MSX:
