Retro games publisher Hamster has something a little different and a little special for this week’s release, as Irem’s attractive shmup In the Hunt has returned for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Originally released in arcades in 1993, (and appearing later on the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation), In the Hunt is a horizontally-scrolling shooter set within the claustrophobic confines of the deep blue sea. After a terrorist organisation known as the D.A.S. (Dark Anarchy Society) flood the planet by melting the polar ice caps, a resistance force creates a powerful battle submarine, the Granvia, to fight its way to the D.A.S. sub-aquatic headquarters and blow it sky sea-high. You can check out a video below from World of Longplays.
