In the Hunt is a horizontal scrolling Submarine Game from
The Story: The player is on a mission to destroy the Dark Anarchy
Society (D.A.S.) in an post-apocalyptic Japan, after the polar ice caps
have melted. The only remaining evidence of earth society are a sunken city,
replete with submerged skyscrapers, and a Japanese town built on oil rig-style
platforms. The rest of your journey will take you through underwater caverns and
ruins, and finally, the flooded base of the D.A.S. itself.
In the Hunt is a furious two-player submarine-based
shoot-em-up, it looks like Metal Slug, plays like Metal Slug,
it is essentially Metal Slug with the ability to move all over the
screen. Visually, In the Hunt looks very nice, with its cartoon-style
graphics, excellent animation, and careful attention to details. In the second
level, your submarine can blow up quite a few background objects, which often
causes (tiny) people and animals to run out and plunge into the water below. You
can even decimate the buildings in this stage with no repercussions.
