The Running Man (ZX Spectrum)

The Running Man Screenshots

ZX Spectrum version

This game has a long load sequence starting with this screen.
Then there's a couple of screens one about the release of the film, another about upcoming Grandstand games. These are followed by an animated title sequence.
Then there's another animated sequence showing Arnie being inserted into the game area. This is followed by another game load period...
... which ends with the games high score table ...
... until finally the game menu is displayed
Finally the game starts. Arnie must move quickly before a guard dog comes along. Level 1 is the Ice Rink level
Jumping is different to most games as Arnie jumps both up and forward so he cannot start a jump too close to the platform
The hockey player will drop Arnie but so will the puck
Being knocked down is a pain because the enemies tend to run back just as Arnie is getting up and knock him down again before the player can react
Even when Arnie knocks hockey man down he's up in a trice and attacking from behind
Got the attack dog but hockey man did it again
