Car Hunt is an arcade game that was released by Sega in 1979; it runs on their Vic Dual hardware, and appears to be based on the two Head On games (which were both released earlier in the year). Like the two Head On games, it predates Namco's signature character - and it also introduces dead ends to the maze, and gives the characters more defined roles (a thief being pursued by the police). Unfortunately, not much else is known about it, due to the fact that it is one of very few Sega games that are not emulated in MAME (until version .96u3 and .139u4, Borderline and Star Raker were not emulated in it either; the official version of Dynamite Düx was also not emulated until version .88u5) but it can be assumed that when your car ran into one of the dead ends it would simply turn around.
