Spy Hunter II was released in March 1987.
The game was not successful for Bally Midway, in fact Spy Hunter II is widely considered by gamers as one of the worst sequels ever made. The game's use of a 3-D perspective from behind and above the car in place of an overhead view used in the original was an unpopular one. Though it created more realism, many fans preferred the original and as a result it never went into large scale production.
Peter Gunn theme music plays throughout the game.
