Infiltrate.  Annihilate. Exterminate.

The sinister NoirDyne Corporation has reactivated a once abandoned bioweapons production facility: The Hive. Operated by genetically engineered creatures called Hivasects, the Hive is producing a toxic substance to be used as a biological weapon. You and your partner, Ginger, had been given an assignment to infiltrate NoirDyne. Something went terribly wrong … your cover was blown and now the chase is on. With the help of Ginger’s brief data loads, you must battle your way through enemy fighters, ground troops, robot weapons, and deadly alien Hivasects. Destroy The Hive, save Ginger… and the Galaxy.

  • Trimark Interactive was a branch out from Trimark Pictures -a movie company probably most famous for Warlock and Leprechaun.
  • …and yes, they published the Warlock game on Genesis, too.
  • That said, they’re probably most notoriously known in the gaming industry for being the company that published the Jaguar game White Men Can’t Jump.
  • The PSRM is a little peculiar – 99% of the time, discs 2 and up will be a few numbers ahead of disc one. In this instance, Disc 2’s PSRM is over double the original. It begs the question if this was them not realizing they would need a second disc late in the game, or if Sony had just assigned a crap ton of them to other developers when Trimark requested the second one.
  • The game boasts “Killer 16-Bit Graphics” while being released on a 32-Bit system.
