Ah, the lonely life of a mercenary. No one to confide in or trust, because whenever money is involved, you can never be certain who's a friend or foe. So you work alone, transporting secret cargo aboard your heavily armed Hydrafoil.
Now you're faced with an unenviable task: your latest assignment calls for navigating your way through nine treacherous rivers to deliver pieces of treasure — all while enemy agents are gunning for you! The game is played from a view behind the UltraBoost Powercraft, a Hydrafoil that has the capability of leaping high into the air.
Steer your craft over money bags and crystals to earn extra cash for upgrades or to replenish fuel and air boosts. You'll also need to avoid obstacles while fending off helicopters, police boats, jet skis, hydrafoils, zeppelins and more until you safely deliver your cargo.
After completing a level, you'll be able to purchase the following seven items: Uzi cannons, nukes (each one destroys everything on the screen), fuel, shields, homing missiles, air boosts and six-way shots. A bonus stage will appear every time you deliver your cargo, so you'll also get to steer through fire rings to add to your cash totals. Hydra is based on the 1990 Atari arcade game of the same name. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
