Welcome, Stun Runner!
The ultimate race of all time has begun. Can you pilot your high-speed hovercraft through a series of tubes in excess of five hundred miles per hour? It all comes down to your quick reflexes, street-smarts, and racing skills.
Based on the arcade hit from Tengen, Stun Runner pushes the Lynx's hardware to the max. Super-fast sprite scaling and rotation equal a high-speed race that will take your breath away. Be sure to follow the red stars that have been left on the track - they mark the fastest way to the finish line, and in the world of Stun Runner, a tenth of a second can be the difference between glory and defeat. Keep your eyes on the jumps, and always be aware of the mega-destructive ShockWave powerup, that will wipe out your opponents in a matter of seconds.
For hand-held hovercraft racing along the lines of the Playstation's Wipeout, there's no denying that Stun Runner on the Lynx delivers. ~ Colin Williamson, All Game Guide
