TITUS ■ RACING SHOOT-'EM-UP
Thunderstruck thundermaster Les Ellis gets driven round the bend to save the world
Retirement never comes easy. When you've been a hero all your life, the thought of settling down in a Welsh cottage, tending sheep and counting daffodils, is not a welcome one. As you arise to the sound of chirping birds one morning, you notice an important message on your fax machine - you're back in action.
The message is from John Torofex, security consultant for the International Peace Conference in Megapolis. He's been tipped off that a group of ruthless mercenaries are on their way to the centre of the city intent wreaking havoc and murdering the conference delegates. Your help is required - pronto!
The villains must be stopped on the roads before they get to the conference centre. Luckily you've just had the Thunder Master II serviced, so you're ready for action. The 850b hp engine resonates beneath your foot, the rosso red paintwork shimmering in the dawn sun, these guys had better watch out The car comes equipped with CD player as standard, but what makes it extra special are the ionic phasers, missile launchers, propulsion system for flight and go faster stripes.
Obviously, coming from behind, you'll, meet the mercenary minions first. Get rid of these as soon a possible as it's the head of the convoy that you really want. The onslaught is made up of five covoys, killing one leader will transfer you onto another street with another set of vehicles.
As you make your way through the convoy, you'll encounter many types of enemy vehicles, from jeeps to tanks, and every one must be dispatched. Most can be cleared using your normal blasters, but some particularly tough ones will need a missile up the rear if they're to make way.
The all-important commodity of fuel can be picked up along the way, as can any extra missiles, lives and kerosene cans (for flight) which you may like to chuck in the boot.
Talking of boots, anyone know where chemists go to buy their shoes...?
