In The Hunt (US)


In The Hunt (c) 04/1993 Irem.


A six level, one or two-player shoot'em up in which the player takes control of a submarine. In The Hunt is a superb game, created by the team behind the legendary "R-Type" series. The superbly-rendered graphics are very similar in style to Irem's "R-Type Leo", released a year earlier. In The Hunt would prove to be Irem's last 'traditional' arcade shoot'em up, although two further R-Type sequels were released for home consoles (see R-Type Series section for more info).
