Ha! And here I thought Live and Let Die would be the only Boat ‘Em Up on this list! Thankfully, YouTube corrected me with its video suggestions (see? Sometimes they DO work!)
Also, what the fist four capital letters of this post spell is a COMPLETE accident.
…oh hey look at that, an Atari ST and Lynx port. Wow! That Lynx port looks just like the arcade game if it was literally scaled down! Lynx, you’ve just scored THREE rail shooters! How?! (answer: sprite scaling and polygonal capabilities)
Okay, you know what? We can count S.T.U.N. Runner, but NOT N2O (because N2O is a loop). Funny thing, the Lynx was the only home port of this prior to the Midway Classics Vol.3 release.
You know what? This *IS* a rail shooter isn’t it? You drive on a road and blow things up…maybe this opens up the PS2 Spy Hunters for inclusion…not sure…but I think Road Blaster may count.
So…we gotta add the Lynx to the list. This was a technical MARVEL at the time! Never played much but I think it hasn’t aged too well…
