Chase H.Q. is a fast paced arcade racing game where your main goal is to hunt down the bad guys. That’s basically all there is to it, but it does it well. A call comes in from H.Q. about a criminal car speeding through the streets and it’s up to you to chase them down before the time limit runs out. Careful driving will ensure that you catch up with the car (which extends your timer), so that you can ram it. To the left of the screen, there is an enemy car damage indicator, and once this reaches maximum then the criminal’s car will slow up and stop. There are several levels to progress through with a different criminal and car to chase each time.

One of the attractions of Chase H.Q. is the thrill of chasing the criminal through the busy roads at unbelievable sppeds, all the while flying over dips and bumps. There is also a limited turbo option, which gives your car an extra burst of speed.

Ocean released versions of the game for all the home computer platforms at the time to some mixed response. One of the highlights of these conversions was the Amstrad CPC version, which received – along with the Spectrum version – an unprecedented 97% rating from Computer and Video Games magazine.

Graphically, the game couldn’t have been any better. The car speeds down the roads very smoothly and even when in turbo everything passes by smoothly. Fast and fun, Chase H.Q. is another quality arcade conversion on the CPC. No wonder Ocean walked off with the 8-bit arcade conversion award that year.
