In the Hunt

Arcade 1995 Dos Imagineer Co. Shooter Horizontal shooter Side scrolling

Great arcade port

The story of the game is quite simple and it can be summed up like this: an evil society know as D.A.S. have flooded the world and know reign supreme over the survivors of this catastrophe. In order to overthrow this society, the survivors has started a rebellion and developed a submarine, which the player will take control off, and use it to destroy weapons that the D.A.S. might use against the rebels. The gameplay of the game is quite great. It comes as close to its arcade counterpart and as we all like it: fast paced action at its best. However, the game can be quite difficult, due to the amount of enemies on screen, however, it's not such an issue. You have two types of attacks: shooting different of torpedoes, which go horizontally and weapons that go upward. As, like in any other shooters, you can upgrade these guns and after losing your life, the standard weapons are back. The boss fights are quite epic and memorable and I've had most fun fighting them. The graphics are great and the sound department did a magnificent job. Overall, In the Hunt is surely of one the best ports of an actual arcade game. It comes as close to the arcade version and the fun value of the game is really high. So, if you don't want to spend your quarters at your local arcade, go ahead and play this one instead.
