Night Striker reminds of Knight Rider TV Show, and the game combines driving and shooting in a futuristic 'Roadblasters' style title.
Unlike in Space Harrier, where one hit means you're dead, Night Striker uses the shield system for your car's "heath". At the start of the game you have five shields, but you can increase your shield count if you complete a stage without taking a single hit. After each stage, your shield number will be extended by one point, and you lose a shield point if you get hit by either enemy fire, or crash into an object. Learn to control the car perfectly so you'll be able to get to the last stage with plenty of shield points!
A 3-D shoot-em-up rendered with fast moving, sprite-scaled graphics. Players must guide an armoured hover car through a number of scrolling levels - destroying waves of enemies in the process - in an attempt to rescue a scientist who has been kidnapped by a terrorist organization. A large guardian awaits players at the end of each level, with each one taking several hits to destroy.
Instead of having a set number of lives, the player's vehicle is equipped with a shield that depletes whenever the player is hit by enemy fire or has collisions with either enemies or scenery. The player's shields are recharged at the end of every level.
