The gameplay is superb; tough enough to keep you glued to your screen as you race after the elusive next car, yet highly addictive as you always seem to get just a little bit further with every go. Read Review

We're looking at Number One here, no question. This is a bloomin' miracle! A brilliant conversion of a very playable coin-op, and in 128k it's absolutely magnificent. Read Review
The heat is on! The steaming roads beckon your turbo-charged Porsche 928 as the screeching of tyres in the distance heralds another crime being committed. "This is Nancy at Chase HQ. We gotta few perps to catch, Algernon. Looks like we ain't gonna get much sleep tonight!"
"Gotcha, Nancy baby! We're on our way!"
Details of the perpetrators' vehicles flash across your in-car computer screen as you tear away down the busy L.A. streets in search of your quarry.
You are the head of SCI (Special Criminal Investigation) and the type of guys you chase don't stop for no-one! After years of experience, you have discovered that the only way of stopping these people is to ram 'em off the road!
Your limited Turbo Chargers help you catch up, but these guys seem to drive the best (and fastest) sports cars on the road, so catchin' 'em ain't easy.
You have 60 seconds to catch up with the target vehicle and then a further 60 seconds in which to ram it off the road. Points are scored as you progress along the road. Points are also awarded for passing cars.
This continues for up to 8,000 points, but if you hit another car (other than your target), the scoring will restart at 200 points.
When you reach the target vehicle, you will score 10,000 points for each ht on the first level, and 20,000 points for each hit on the second level, etc. There is also a 'hidden' special bonus which may be awarded.
There will be an extra bonus for completing the game. When you catch up with the criminals' car, a hit indicator will appear on-screen. This will show how many times you have to hit the target vehicle; when this indicator is full your car will automaticaly overtake the criminals and stop them.
K - Left, L - Right, A - Accelerate, Z - Brake, N - Change Gear, SPACE - Turbo
