1.2 Introduction
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

A few days I was looking for a way to play Lotus III but my PC is too
fast so the game doesn't run but...I found this great emulator called
dosbox that runs all odl games, I'll explain this in the 2.1 section.
Anyway, now I finally can play this great game again I searched for it
on GameFaqs but suprisingly it wasn't in the database so I added it :)
I'm now writing this guide to encourage other games to play this game.
If you liked Tyrian you surely want to play it! Let's get started!

=======================================================================
2. The Game
=======================================================================

The main things of the game will be explained here, like how to play it
on a fast computer, the story and other general things related to this
game.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2.1 How to play on a fast computer
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, if you have an old computer with 32mb there is nothing to worry
you'll be able to play the game just fine. ALthough if you own a fast
nowadays computer and not an old one you'll get a problem like me.
No matter what you try the game just won't work (if you got your game
working with only some windows configurations please let me know).

First you'll need DosBox, a great Dos X86 emulator.
Get it here: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1

When you've installed it you'll need to mount a folder with all the games
in it (sub directories are allowed). To mount a folder just type this:
(my HD and folder with my old games)

mount g g:/Games

you'll need to do this each time you start DosBox, if you don't want to
just open the dosbox config file with notepad and put that line at the
bottom of the document.

Or...if you don't want to mount things t all you can download a frontend
that's a program that will mount the folders for you. If you have any
more questions about dosbox please visit the dosbox forum on their site.

Now that you've installed dosbox properly it's time to get Highway Hunter
because it's abandonware you can get it easily when you search google.
I COULD put a link here but GameFaqs wouldn't accept my guide because :

From the Gamefaqs Help Section - Game Piracy: ROMs and Warez

What is "abandonware", and is it legal?

Abandonware is a generic term for software titles that are no longer 
available for purchase from any source, usually computer games that 
are several years old. While many software companies turn a blind 
eye to their distribution at this point, it is still a technical 
violation of copyright to distribute or download copies of 
"abandoned" games. 

*cough*underdogs*cough.

Now you can play this fantastic game!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2 Story
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Five years ago the Axis of Allied Planets took over Earth and installed
terraformers to reshape the environments and make it more hospitable for
offworlders. unfortunately the terraformers are killing all human life.
After a stint at freedom-fighting, you were captured and put into an
"adjustment camp" working in the garage. You helped develop the
Multi-Attack Super Turbo Energy Ranger (MASTER), a prototype vehicle
that the aliens will use to annihilate any remaining resistance. Seeing
your chance, you steal the master and break out of prison.You must now
punch through the prison's security perimeter, rejoin the
partisans, destroy the terraformers, and save your world!

Objective :

You are still within the controled boundaries of the Axis of
Allied Planets. Use your MASTER to defeat their defenses and escape to
freedom.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2.3 Game Credits
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Wonder who made this great game? Well here they are! They also made
Tyrian, these people are great!

Coding : - Alexander Safonov
Manager: - Mike Korablin
Music  : - Serge Shishkin
Artwork: - Serge Kuzmin

I think these are all Russian people.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2.4 Game Review
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

~ Introduction ~ 

Finally, I found a great dos emulator so I could play this golden oldie 
again. After some time of playing this game I decided to write this 
review. Like I said, it's not as good as Tyrian but if you liked that 
game you definitely will like this one too!

~ Game Play ~ 8.5/10

This game is a 2D Driving shooting game. In Tyrian you control a ship, 
here you drive a high tech spy hunter like car. While playing there will
be other enemy cars, air planes, and other weird things on the road to 
shoot. Yes, that's right, you drive on the road that goes from left to 
right, if you play the game on the fastest it can you'll get seasick 
when playing some levels. Each level has it's own level boss,some are 
easy, some are hard but on your way you'll find weapon upgrades 
(if you shoot with them too much you'll loose your upgrade after a while) 
and shields (front shields & circling shields, they won't last forever, 
when hit too much or after some time they disappear). I think this game 
also came from the arcade, because you also have a high score table. 
Shoot as many enemies as you can to get bonuses and other stuff.

~ Story ~ 8/10

Five years ago the Axis of Allied Planets took over Earth and installed
terraformers to reshape the environments and make it more hospitable for
offworlders. unfortunately the terraformers are killing all human life.
After a stint at freedom-fighting, you were captured and put into an
"adjustment camp" working in the garage. You helped develop the
Multi-Attack Super Turbo Energy Ranger (MASTER), a prototype vehicle
that the aliens will use to annihilate any remaining resistance. Seeing
your chance, you steal the master and break out of prison.You must now
punch through the prison's security perimeter, rejoin the
partisans, destroy the terraformers, and save your world!

~ Graphics & Music ~ 10/10

These are just great, all levels have their own backgrounds and 
enemies, sometimes you drive on a road high above a machine city where 
some kind of robots and cannons are shooting on you, or above some kind 
of jungle where camouflaged tanks are driving along with fighting jets.

The music is very cool, it never gets annoying. When you shoot you hear 
your weapons go and if you launch rockets you hear them moving.

~ Play Time / Replay Value ~ 9/10

There are 3 episodes, with a lot of missions so you'll be busy for some 
hours. Try to shoot as many things as you can to get the highest score!
There is nothing new when you beat the game, just try again and play on 
a higher difficulty or faster game speed to make the game harder.

~ Overall ~ 9/10

Tyrian's little brother, good if you can't get a copy or you're tired 
of tyrian, else you should buy Tyrian 2000.

Rent or Buy? See if you can get it and be sure to have an old PC or 
the dosbox emulator.

=======================================================================
3.Explainations
=======================================================================

In this section you'll find all things like what the MASTER is, how to
use the weapons, why are they decreasing after a while and so on.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.1 The MASTER
------------------------------------------------------------------------

MASTER: Multi-Attack Super Turbo Energy Ranger

The MASTER is a prototype vehicle that you  stole from the aliens while
working in their garage when they captured you. This highly sofisticated
driving machine can get some pretty cool weapons like a rocket launcher
an Ion beam annd so on. Also it's defence will be better when you apply
the front shield or the circling one.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.2 Controls
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keyboard : - Arrows keys ==> move your vehicle
           - Space Bar   ==> fire the current weapon
           - P           ==> Pauses the game
           - ESC         ==> Quits the game

Mouse    : - Mouse move  ==> move your vehicle
           - L Mouse btn ==> fire the current weapon

Joystick : - No info

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.3 Weapons
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A list of the weapons and descriptions will come soon.

After some ime when you've shot too much you'll see the weapon bar at the
bottom of the screen decrease, when it's completely gone your weapons will
decrease to the previous ones.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.4 Shields
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shields protect you from beeing hit by enemy fire. There are 4 kinds of
shields, the front shield, cyclone shield, circle shield and + Shield.
You can only get one shield at a time so watch the shield bar at the right
bottom of the screen, when it's gone your shield will disappear too!

Front shield : Can hold enemy fire that is fired in front of you, it will
               also destroy enemies hit with it.

Cyclone shield : It floats around the MASTER and will stop incoming fire
                 when it hits it. Like the front shield it also destroys
                 enemy vehicles and planes when hit.

Circle shield : This shield will fly in front of you but it will remain
                on the same place when you drive a bit back.

+ Shield : This shield goes from left to right in front of your ship.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.5 Power Ups
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Highway Hunter has 4 Power ups.
All power ups are in metal floating rounds with a letter in it except the
shields. These power ups only last for a limited time. Use wisely.

U : Upgrade weapon for maximum fire power
O : Temporary invincibility
C : Take power from all enemies

 ____

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.2 Boss Guide
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note that not all info given will be 100% the same if you play on another
difficulty.

4a-1
Megatank : This tank will fire from his 4 guns so first shoot at the
           upper part of the machine so you won't need to evade those
           lasers all the time, when you've done that just drive in the
           middle of the tank so the other two guns won't be able to hit
           you, keep shooting until it explodes.

4a-2
Tripicopter : This helicopter like machine shoots red bullets at you.
              You can shoot those so this boss isn't hard, still you need
              to watch out for the jets because they keep coming!
              Keep shooting at his three wings and he'll crash.p

4a-3
Army Fighting Helicopter : Be careful with this guy, first shoot his main
                           gun at the middle of the helicopter. 
                           When that's destroyed you'll get a healing 
                           item, now you'll have to shoot at the two sides
                           When both sides are destroyed the middle part 
                           will shoot rockets, just keep hitting him
                           because the rockets will be destroyed by 
                           your gun.

4a-4
Desert Killer : This werid tank-look-alike has two bots flying around him
                Those two shoot so you'll need to destroy those first.
                Now things get hard, the two large cannons are activated
                and shoot big lasers at you, remain in the middle of the
                tank and focus on one gun at a time. When you pick up the
                cyclone shield along the way just let it hit the guns by
                driving really close to the middle of the tank.

4a-5
Evil Tank : First shoot the guns at both sides. After the both died the
            tank will shoot red bullets all over the place so try not to
            beeing hit by them.

4b-1
Starship : First you need to destroy the guns at the bottom of the ship.
           When you've done that, just keep hitting the ship and you'll
           defeat it. Can't be easier!

4b-2
Redeyes : This is a machine with a face :) it has red eyes! Anyway,
          watch out for his grab arms, you'll need to shoot those first.
          When those are gone you win.

4b-3
Vampire Ship : This ship looks like a vampire bat so that's why I call it
               so. The front guns will start shooting at you so try to
               aim at the wings.

4b-4
Schumacher : A Formula 1 racing car, try to evade his red dots and shoot
             at the connection between the car and the wheels.

4b-5
Dragon-Snake : The eyes! The eyes!! Yes, you need to hit it's eyes.
               Watch out for his tongue, when he blows some gas out of
               his nose he'll put his tongue! When both eyes are gone
               keep hitting the head and you'll win.

4c-1
Grizzly Snake : Just hit him but be careful when he goes forward.

4c-2
Black Jaguar : Just keep hitting him, watch out for the red dots.

4c-3
Buzz Buzz : This is a mechanical fly, shoot on his eyes first but watch
            out for the laser he shoots from his mouth. Orange dots will
            appear from the hole when an eye is gone. After both are gone
            keep hitting him and he'll die.

4c-4
Megatank The Second : Hit the gun on top of the tank first. After that's
                      destroyed, grey dots will be popping out of the
                      hole, just keep hitting the main part of the tank.

4c-5
Final Boss : Keep hitting him in the middle.After that destroy his arms
             and his guns. After that this is destroyed keep shooting on
             what's left but be careful with the large red dots.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.3 Tactics
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

There aren't much tactics to give you, but the only thing I can say is:

- Don't keep shooting because your ammo will be gone after a while
- Don't miss any shields on the road because they're very usefull
- Try to stick on the bottom of the road, never fly at the top
- Always drive in the middle of the road
- Always shoot the hard enemies first
- Maybe more coming soon if someone sends me some.
