Spy Hunter series

Group Description

Spy Hunter was a coin-operated arcade game by Bally. The first video game was a direct coin-op conversion of that arcade game, and then the franchise further expanded upon the story. The games have a science fiction, futuristic setting and are racing games with shooting.

The main character is Alex Decker, a spy working for the CIA. His car, Interceptor, is tricked out with all sorts of high-tech weaponry and gadgets. In his missions to stop the evil doings of the NOSTRA Corporation, Alex drives the Interceptor in high-speed chases, fire weapons and deploy traps to disable the enemy. The car can morph into other vehicles (boat, plane, motorcycle, jet ski etc.) depending on what is necessary to further the particular game's plot.


In 2003, a movie based on the franchise was announced with Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) playing the lead character. However, since then Johnson dropped out, the director changed and as of 2013 it still has yet to materialize.
