Description of Hunter Hunted

Part of Sierra's much-hyped but short-lived "k.a.a." line, Hunter Hunted is a one- or two-player side-scrolling action game which pits human hero Jake against (what else) a big, ugly creature, both of which have been captured by aliens and put into tunnels similar to Colliseum of yore, so that they would pursue each other in a search-and-destroy competition.

Hunter Hunted doesn't break any new grounds in a way that Abuse did-- it's just another side-scrolling action game for the most part. The game does, however, introduce an intriguing novel concept: the third dimention of 2D. When Jake or the Hunter reaches a 2-D door, a stroke of the up arrow sends the character running headlong into the screen, "away" from the player, into the next lateral level of arena. There are also other special doors which require keys or other objects/actions to open-- those are presented edge-on to the viewer in a kind of cutaway view.

The gameplay is straightforward and violent enough, with a suitably explosive soundtrack. While the game may prove too repetitive and easy in one-player mode, it is the two-player split-screen action that makes this game worthwhile: thanks to the into-the-world ability, you can sneak up on your opponent from behind, above or below for unpleasant surprises. Fluid animations round off this fun underdog. Anyone looking for intense solo-player action should stick to Abuse, but if you have a friend, Hunter Hunted is worth checking out.

You will need either the original CD, or the ISO from here.

Then you'll need to download and open this:

After that, you can set it up with that application and it'll ask for the disc (either physically or the one that you mounted) After that, the game should be working just fine on modern systems. The only issue is the soundtrack, which you can also fix but it will take some work.

I was able to get it to work by downloading the first ISO, mounting it, and then using the Hunter-Hunted installer from here:

I wasn't able to even install it. Compatibility Mode did not work.

Change the paths in sierra.ini (the bottom two lines) so that they correspond to the folder in which the game is located. Then copy this file to the Windows directory. Run as admin in compatibility mode with Windows 98.
