Shack's Arcade Corner: Spy Hunter

Today on Shack's Arcade Corner, I look back at one of the all-time classic arcade games. Spy Hunter was an endless driving game that featured many powerups to help players evade enemies. The music was amazing for the time and has lived on in many movies and TV shows. There were two types of Spy Hunter arcade cabinets (seated and standing), both of which featured a funky looking steering wheel that resembled the controls of an airplane. The game was ported to a vast array of consoles, including the NES. There was also a mediocre attempt at rebooting the series back in the early 2000s, but nothing has really captured the fun of playing the original Spy Hunter at my local arcade.
