Highway Pursuit

Highway Pursuit is a modern game taking its inspiration from a number of classic arcade games.

It's an action-packed 3d blast along roads filled with enemy agents -- but also with innocent civilians that you should protect at all costs.

Featuring diverse landscapes and scenery, a variety of enemy vehicles, multiple weapons, weather effects, radio communications from your HQ, 3d sound effects, configurable support for keyboard, joysticks and steering wheels, Highway Pursuit is a road trip you shouldn't miss!

Highway Pursuit is produced in association with Retrospec.

Highway Pursuit is available to download now.

Version history

Version 1.1 (6th Janury, 2005)

  • All controls can now be redefined when in Joystick mode, so the steering/acceleration/brake can be mapped to other axes or to controller buttons.
  • It is now possible to navigate the menus using the joystick -- see the Use Joystick For Menus option under the Controller settings. The entire game can then be driven without using the keyboard, except for typing in a name for the highscore table (though pressing Fire will save whatever name is already entered without needing to touch the keyboard).
  • The last entered highscore table name will be saved between sessions.
  • The Escape key will now return to the menu when in Pause mode.
  • Additional keys recognised for menu option selection (should fix problems with activating menus on some systems).
  • Slightly easier to get into the lorry -- it will steer towards the correct position in front of you.
  • Hopefully fixed a bug where the lorry fell into the water while carrying the player car.
  • Uninstall now properly cleans up the registry entries and HighwayPursuit directory.
