    TECHNICAL
    Runs on the "DECO Cassette System" Hardware.

    Cartridge ID: Cassette DT-1010 and dongle DP-1010

    TRIVIA
    HWY (pronounced Highway) Chase was released in December 1980 in the Japanese arcades. It was the very first video game made for this system (Cassette No. 01) along with Sengoku Ninja-tai (known as Ninja out of Japan) and Manhattan.

    It is said the title HWY Chase (HWY instead of Highway) was selected to easily recycle source code and materials made for 'Mad Rider', released earlier as a PCB, and known as 'Mad Alien' out of Japan.

    The title screen of the game says: Fantastic! Exciting! Thrilling! in HWY Chase by Data East.
