Description

If being the best speedboat racer in the world were all there was to life, you'd live on easy street. But when the government of Hydra has asked for your help in defeating Hydra's enemies by couriering parts to a secret weapon, and those enemies know you're coming... well then, life gets interesting.

Race down narrow swamp lanes to deliver parts of a secret weapon to bases at the finish of each section. Enemies will be shooting at you, but you can shoot back with Uzi Cannons and Nukes. Collect crystals along the way to boost your speed or shields.

Screenshots

Hydra ZX Spectrum From somewhere I've picked up some special weapons, though lobbing nukes around does seem a little over the top
Hydra ZX Spectrum This is the main enemy I came up against, some kind of robotic trash can that tries to get in the way
Hydra ZX Spectrum It is possible to travel 'off-road'. No enemies to get in the way but no bonus items to collect either and I don't think I travelled as fast.
Hydra ZX Spectrum This is what a tunnel looks like from the inside. Looks like its lit by torches, well this is an old game I suppose. The white thing I am chasing is, I believe, the enemy craft that stole the virus
