Topic: Huntdown Review - VHS-Era Arcade Action

With the recent release of Streets of Rage 4 there's another arcade-style action game out in the wild called Huntdown. A Metal Slug meets Contra stroll through the sorts of crime-filled streets you found on dusty vertical-hold challenge VHS copies of Robocop, The Terminator, and Escape From New York.

A snippet.
There’s a lot happening on screen at any given moment. From checkpoints being run by a fully voiced and animated mobile surgery vehicle to the lively backdrops that draw on everything from The Terminator to Robocop and even a little Blade Runner. Plus, plenty of cyberpunk-style neon love. There’s a ‘let’s throw everything in’ tone to a lot of Huntdown, and throughout the journey to, err, hunt down various criminal gangs throughout the different city districts you’ll go from cyberpunk neon skyline one moment to a industrial zone filled with biker gangs and continuously burning oil fires the next.

The setup is as simple and classic beat-em up as that, with each stage pitting you in a run and gun arcade side-scroller of a level against a stream of no good-bits before you then face off against the boss – the bounty.
