^ from: - Get ready for a futuristic racing game taking you through a network of dangerous tubular tunnels. It's S.T.U.N. Runner!

S.T.U.N. Runner was released in 1989 by Atari Games. S.T.U.N. stands for "Spread Tunnel Underground Network." You are given the task to blast through the various tunnels at incredible speed. All the while, you must try to avoid other cars in the tunnels and on the highways. There is no storyline or anything. It is just you, a bunch of tunnels, and various traffic ready to prevent you from reaching the Finish of each level. Later levels feature different routes and tougher opposition. As you accumulate damage, you will actually note your ship being damaged with certain body parts taken off. S.T.U.N. Runner was released for certain platforms like arcade and the Atari Lynx, and it is also featured in "Midway Arcade Treasures 3" among others.

When you start a game of S.T.U.N. Runner, you can opt to
Take note of the course you are about to race and look for any hints offered. Among other things trying to prevent you from finishing each level, you have traffic in front of you and various other obstacles. So to give you an edge, your ship is equipped with lasers. You can also equip your ship with a Shockwave to clear out all traffic in front of you. Run over the turbo pads to get a boost of speed. Of all the vehicles you can destroy, the armored drones are indestructible. Since you are in tunnels, be sure to take advantage of going on the sides or even upside down while at speed. You can achieve your best results by finding all of the turbo pads and by minimizing your mistakes. If you fail to reach the finish line, you must try again by burning a Continue. Or in a certain configuration, you may automatically advance to the next level after a few failed attempts to clear the original stage.

Review/Final Thoughts.

S.T.U.N. Runner is a tough game. You'll need to have good reflexes and alertness to clear the various levels. The game is difficult while not being impossible. S.T.U.N. Runner is very competitive and will really test your reflexes in this high-speed game. So give it a try if you manage to find this game in an arcade room or as part of some video game package.

Wow! This review brought back memories for me! I used to dominate this game at my local arcade during my wayward teen years. I remember discovering that on certain levels, I could ride on the ceiling and warp ahead several levels. I could go from level 1 to level 18 easily on one credit (which for this game was a dollar!) because of that.

If I were to do an elevator pitch for this game, I would say it's Road Blasters meets Hard Drivin'.

Thanks for reminding me of this awesome game!
