Spy Hunter arcade game

arcade game

Designed by George Gomez and released by Bally Midway in 1983, Spy Hunter is an example of a vertical scrolling action/driving game. Spy Hunter gives players the opportunity to control a sleek white sports car modeled after Gomez's 1983 Camaro Z-28 and equipped with machine guns, missiles, and devices that dispatch oil slicks and smoke screens. Inspired by James Bond films and the Knight Rider television show, but ulltimately plotless, players act as a spy on an unknown mission, firing upon and avoiding enemies on an endless road. Following the success of the original arcade game, Bally Midway ported the game to several home console and computer platforms, including the Atari 2600, Commodore 64, and Nintendo Entertainment System. Bally also produced a Spy Hunter-themed pinball machine in 1984 and an arcade sequel, Spy Hunter II, in 1987. In 2001, Midway Games released an updated version with enhanced 3D graphics for the GameCube, PlayStation 2, and Xbox home conosles.
