Description

In this isometric 3D action-strategy game, the player uses a Vorton droid to push a bomb to the end of the highway into an alien base. There are 30 screens, most of them filled with hazards trying to block (like barrels) or destroy (mines and aliens) your bomb.

The perspective and guidance concept are not the game's only original features; there are 4 more bombs with you, representing your extra lives - pushing you forward on your mission. If these other Vortons are destroyed, one of your extra lives is lost without the player being able to use it.

Highway Encounter ZX Spectrum Game over. From here the game returns to the title screen. Not sure if there's a high score screen - if there is then I just didn't score enough to register
Highway Encounter ZX Spectrum So now we have a convoy. The player controls the lead Vorton who has a gun. There are 30 zones to get through, the counter in the bottom left decreases as the player progresses
Highway Encounter ZX Spectrum Eventually there's just the player and the lasertron left. The lasertron must be pushed by the player - it will not move on its own
