Early versions of the game used a James Bond musical theme, but the inability to obtain the rights to use the music forced Midway to change this theme. As a result, an arrangement of the Peter Gunn theme plays throughout as background music.

A version of Spy Hunter is included as an Easter egg in the first release of Microsoft Excel 2000. It requires DirectX to work. The procedure to run it is:
* Open Excel.
* In a blank worksheet, select "Save as" and choose "Save as web page".
* Click on Publish and Add interactivity.
* Save as any name you like.
* Load in the page with MS Internet Explorer, Excel will appear in the web page.
* Go to row 2000, column WC.
* Highlight all of row 2000 and press Tab to make column WC the active column.
* Hold the keys Ctrl, Alt, Shift and click on the Office Icon (It looks like four puzzle pieces put together).
* Use the arrow keys to drive your car, the "O" key to drop oil slicks, the space bar to shoot, and the "H" key for headlights.
