Hudson Hawk is a platform game developed by Special FX for the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum based on the film of the same name. It was released in 1991 and published by Ocean Software. Sony Imagesoft released it in the US for the Game Boy and NES. In Spain it was published as El Gran Halcon, the Spanish title for the film.
The player assumes the role of Hudson Hawk, a cat burglar. He is sent on a mission to steal three Da Vinci artifacts. Walking through various levels in this platform game, the player must avoid sounding alarms. In addition, security guards and dogs show up to hamper the mission. Hudson Hawk can pacify the enemies by punching them or throwing a 'ball' at them.
Enemies include a rhinoceros stampeding in the Vatican library and a kangaroo.
You can control this game easily by using the keyboard of your PC (see the table next to the game). However, for maximum gaming enjoyment, we strongly recommend using a USB gamepad that you simply plug into the USB port of your computer. If you do not have a gamepad, buy a suitable USB controller in Amazon or in some of your favorite online stores.
