Three girls have been reported missing including the mayor's daughter, and Chase Special Investigations has asked you to track down five vehicles, mentioned in the mission briefing, who are believed to be involved in the kidnapping. Using a heavy-designed machine with a V6 DOHC 3000CC Twin Turbo Engine, five sets of nitro-fuel boosts, and a gun attached to the steering wheel (which you can use to damage the target vehicle), your mission is to patrol the streets and find these vehicles.

The gameplay is similar to Chase H.Q., but there are a few differences. For example, cars travel in both directions instead of one, and some of them will catch up to your car and shoot at you. At least once in every stage a helicopter does a fly by and drops you some grenades you can use to further damage the target vehicle. A guy on a motorcycle will catch up to you and throw grenades at your car. And, most importantly, as mentioned earlier, you can shoot at the target vehicle rather than just bumping into it.

Have fun driving around, but remember, there is a strict time limit, so I wouldn't waste time or keep crashing into things if I were you.


Chase H.Q. II: Special Criminal Investigation ZX Spectrum When a villain has been sighted a status bar on the left indicates the damage caused. The player has until the countdown timer runs out to fill this column by shooting their car
Chase H.Q. II: Special Criminal Investigation ZX Spectrum Even driving off-road does not cause any damage, come to think of it there's no damage meter on-screen. Of course it does slow down the chase car and make catching the bad guys harder.
Chase H.Q. II: Special Criminal Investigation ZX Spectrum One life over and the bad guys have not been caught, of course the game will continue!
Chase H.Q. II: Special Criminal Investigation ZX Spectrum Caught the wagon, now to do damage. The small round objects in front of the chase car are shots that missed and hit the road. Good job standard ammo is not limited
