Has a bit of a Wing Commander look to it.
It's not some lame N64 Star Wars game is it?
Like Rogue Squadron or something similar.

It's not one of the SNES Scope 6 ones is it? Intercept or Engage or one of those.

That will explain most of it, but basically
- new external development team (Active Minds) cannot finish project on time
- John Meegan and others called in at last minute to program new game
- 8-bit versions re-used code from The Untouchables for the platform sections
- 16-bit versions used unreleased code from Batman the Movie for the taxi scenes
- game is credited to "Mentus Absentia" - Absent Minds, a reference to Active Minds
Excellent artilce by the creator, loved it.

Funny, I was thinking it reminds me of a Jaguar demo, but I can't remember the name of the game.
