So is there a plane stage or what?
1 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

This game was cool back in the day. You are a car with a machine guns blasting bad guys off the road. A truck periodically comes up and you drive into it and get even more power ups: a smoke screen, oil slick and missiles! If you can make all the right turns you can even enter into the spy boat! The cover of the NES game seems to indicate you can even play as a plane, however, I rarely made it to the boat stage and when I did I usually ended up dying right away as I was usually down to my last life. The road hazards are many as you have cars constantly trying to bash you off the road, shoot you and generally make your trip less pleasant. All these hazards make me wonder, why did they not include some armor onto the spy hunter car? Do not tell me it would of effected its speed as most of the other cars were faster than the spy hunter car including the semi! Still, it was fun, especially at the arcade and on the NES it was a nice rental when rented with a couple of other games. I could not imagine continually playing this one over and over without a break. I just wonder if you could become a plane after the boat or was that picture on the cover simply there to trick us?
