Description

This is a top-down vertically scrolling shooter, in which you start off as a motorbike. You are quite vulnerable to attack at first, but power-ups come in the form of a Sega van which you have to dock with. The first time you dock you get double fire, the second time gives you a rocket, the third gives a rear force field, and the fourth invulnerability.

By destroying cars and bikes that appear on your way, you can collect A-F letters. Collecting A through to D allows you to change into a sports car which is less vulnerable to attack, but not as nimble. Collect all the letters in order to be able to transform into a high-tech plane. This is the final stage of one of the five missions. Only the high-tech plane can guide you to your destination in which your main target is hiding.

There is also a time limit in which you have to complete the mission. It is advisable to transform into the high-tech plane as fast as it is possible.

Picking up flags gives you bonus points with 10,000 points gaining you an extra life.
