Just for the interests of your sites Databases..
You probably know better than to trust everything printed in the Lynx game manuals, as they sometimes contain mistakes?
Case in point,Stun Runner, over to someone who knows his stuff
"Just thought I'd point out that we here at Atari Games Corp. are not the dweebs that the Atari Corp. (different company) marketing types who wrote the copy for the poster/instructions are.
S.T.U.N.actually stands for Speed Tunnel Underground Network not what is indicated otherwise . In fact,
the original meaning of the name was Spread Tunnel Underground Network,
which had to do with the original theme of the game which ended up
changing over the course of development and testing (whew! How is that for a classic case of run-on sentence?). The source code still refers to each level as a "spread".
But in any event, I would think that even a Marketing nerd could see that Sub-Terranean Underground is redundant(but then I guess that Marketing nerd and Marketing dweeb are redundant also...).
