Hard to remember that the coin-op original of this game came out in 1983. Some of us weren't even born then... er, quite. Anyway, this one's long overdue for a budget re-release, because although it's appeared on some compilations, it's still streets ahead of many flashier coin-op convs on sheer playability.

The format is dead simple; steer your heavily-armed spy car up the scrolling screen, barging and blasting the equally be-weaponed opposition and avoiding steering straight into the roadside or into the water. Exciting enough, but halfway through you get a boat instead, and all the excitement becomes waterborne.

Dead simple, looks and sounds pretty grotty, but in fact as good a blast-up as you could wish for.

Classic car-racing shoot-'em-up which still plays well despite primitive look.
