The year is 2068 and the Mysterons are waging a war of nerves against Earth, issuing cryptic warnings before using their powers of retro-metabolism to control people and carry out their threats. Earth's only defence is Spectrum, a world security organisation now focused solely on defeating the Mysteron menace.

The title combines intensely addictive gameplay with stunning graphics and the rich background of the television series to create a compelling game that will appeal to a wide range of gamers.

The game features 14 graphically stunning levels that recreate the look and feel of the original series. The environment of each level varies, from a fog shrouded dock, to polar oil refineries, to Cloudbase, the home of Spectrum itself. Each Spectrum Agent has unique capabilities, and gamers can choose from a range of tools such as a sniper rifle, Mysteron detector or remote controlled robots. Three levels of difficulties will suit players of all ages and abilities, as they call in air-strikes, defuse nuclear bombs, rescue downed Angel pilots and much more, to defuse the Mysteron threat. Players will also control a variety of vehicles including Spectrum Saloon Cars, Angel Interceptors and, of course, the legendary Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle.

The game will be available from major high street and online games retailers, and direct from Batfish Studios.
