Classic Spy Hunter - The Game Play
Spy Hunter is an vertical scrolling action driving game with the gamer in the role of a spy driving an armed sportscar. The object of this classic game is to travel the freeway destroying as many enemy vehicles as possible while protecting civilian vehicles. The Spy Hunter web game uses top-down perspective. The online game begins with the player driving the fictitious G-6155 Interceptor. Various enemy vehicles try to destroy the player's car or to force it off the road, including a helicopter that drops bombs that can also leaves holes in the road. A counter increments the score while the car is moving. Additional points are earned destroying enemy vehicles using weapons or by forcing them off the road. After an initial lead-in time during which the gamer has an unlimited supply of cars, the player must earn extra cars by obtaining high scores. Destroying non-enemy cars halts the score counter for a short while and hard collisions with cars can also destroy the Spy Hunter vehicle. Following periodic forks in the road, gamers can enter a new 'territory' with different terrain and/or weather conditions. They can also upgrade the Spy Hunter car's standard machine guns by adding other weapons by entering the Weapons Van, which appears in each new territory and can be periodically summoned by pressing the blinking "Weapons Van" button. Three special weapons are available: oil slicks, smoke screens, and surface-to-air missiles. Each has limited ammo and are lost if the Spy Hunter car is destroyed. The classic Spy Hunter game's dashboard shows which weapons are available, when lit. It is possible to convert the car into a cigarette boat for brief periods by driving through a special boathouse which appears infrequently at the side of the road after which the player is attacked by two different enemy boats.
Spy Hunter - Game Music
Early versions of the classic Spy Hunter game used the James Bond theme by Monty Norman, but the inability to obtain the rights to play this music forced Midway to change the theme. As a result, an electronic arrangement of Henry Mancini's theme to Peter Gunn plays throughout the web game.
