Based on the classic game Highway Encounter ( https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/entry/2323/ZX-Spectrum/Highway_Encounter ), you must guide the Bomb to the end of the highway, destroying or blocking enemies on the way to ensure its safe passage.

This game accuractely recreates the whole highway from the original, including all the enemies, puzzles, scenery and finale!

You have 5 lives, but unlike most games, your lives are already in play, and will push the bomb along automatically while there is nothing in the way.  If all your extra lives are destroyed, you will have to push the bomb along yourself, which can be done by pushing or shooting it.


W, A, S, D and mouse to look and shoot.

F - Toggle first/third person.  Use 1 & 2 to adjust camera distance in 3rd-person mode.

I - Toggle inversing the camera up/down.


Programmed by Stephen Smith, based on the game created by Costa Panayi and published by Vortex software.  Further credits are detailed in the download.
