Super Spy Hunter Cheats & Cheat Codes for NES

Super Spy Hunter Cheats & Cheat Codes for NES

In the early 1980s, a vehicle combat action game was developed by Bally Midway for arcades called Spy Hunter. The game originally was supposed to be based on the James Bond IP but it draws inspiration instead. Spy Hunter succeeded in the arcades, becoming one of the top 5 highest-selling arcade games of the following years. The game was ported to the consoles of the time including the Atari 2600, the Apple II, and the NES. The game spawned sequels and the NES port was branded as a sequel titled Super Spy Hunter. Super Spy Hunter as a game seemed to have been scrubbed from the internet or just forgotten due to the passage of time. Luckily for us, the cheat codes are still available.

The Premise Of Super Spy Hunter

This game has very little information about it on the internet. It seems every link leading to substantial information is now a dead link so it is really hard to find specifics. However, there is plenty of information we can infer from other games in the series. Super Spy Hunter is a vertical-scrolling driving game where you take on the role of a spy driving an armed sportscar. Your goal is to drive down roads and destroy various enemy vehicles with weapons installed into your supercar. Sometimes, you’re able to transform the car into a speedboat, and other times it will be mandatory. While in speedboat mode you gain access to new weapons. The game has no ending, it continues until all lives are lost.
