The spiritual precursor to Safari's more famous shooter Tyrian, Highway Hunter is an addictive, knuckle-blistering shooter from obscure Russian developer Omega Integral Systems (OIS). The game puts you in control of an armed-to-the-top car instead of the more common spaceship. The gameplay is straightforward shooting mayhem: kill everything in sight and collect power-ups to prepare for the end-level boss. A wide variety of power-ups, enemies, and levels makes this a must-play for all shooter fans. Recommended, and also check out Highway Fighter, the 1993 spiritual "prequel" that is even more obscure than this game.
