Spy Hunter (C64)
- For other games in the series see Spy Hunter.
Spy Hunter is a driving game where you play a spy racing down the road in his ultra-fast sports car. You're trying to elude the villains like the Tire-Slasher and the Bulletproof Bully. Your car is equipped with machine guns and can be fitted with neat spy-gadgets like oil slicks and smokescreens. Every few miles there is a fork in the road which sends you down different roads including the desert, the coast, the woods, even snow-covered roads! Later in the game you can also hop into a speed boat and cruise along a river.
Although the game has an interesting theme, the initial excitement wares off pretty quickly and then becomes boring. The roads are repetitive, there's only a small variety of enemies, and without an ending, your only goal becomes surpassing your previous high score. Even if you're able to get to the speedboat section of the game, you'll find the enemies are incredibly difficult and you don't get any new spy-gadgets, thus making it pointless to play.
Like the other ports, the Commodore 64 release features only the "Peter Gunn Theme", originally performed by the Henry Mancini Orchestra. This version is longer than most of the other ports, but not as long as the NES version, and the fidelity is quite lower.
