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.


Hydra ZX Spectrum Noooooo!  Game over!
Hydra ZX Spectrum So the good guys have intercepted a virus and I must deliver it top the sterilization labs in Baja, California
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 The chase to recover the virus is on hold as I am out of fuel. There are three tanks so once I have used this reserve I have one more left - then I'll probably need more supplies
