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 I may have nukes but I'm still firing plain old bullets. The craft I'm chasing is dead ahead with a couple of, what I hope are, supply balloons around it
Hydra ZX Spectrum Any crash, whether with a robot or part of the scenery, means that the virus is lost. Here it is being transported from the wreckage, it's also gone from the top of the screen
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
Hydra ZX Spectrum Start of the game. The virus is in the crate. When its loaded an icon appears in the space between the two screen headings showing Colorado, start point, and the cash earned
