Tek-Kids Flash-Ops: Mission: Polar Challenge Polar Mission is the second in a series of four promotional tie-in games for a Taco Bell campaign revolving around Spy-Tek. This game focuses on the four Tek Kids in their effort to thwart an evil villain named Dr. Havok who plans to blackmail the world's governments by accelerating global warming through manually melting the polar ice caps.

The player chooses from among the four Tek Kids to take on the dangerous polar mission. The gameplay consists of a piloting a rocket sled across the polar ice caps while dodging enemies and collecting powerups. The enemies include skiing robots who attack you with their ski poles, spiked mines, and another exploding object. Powerups include 2 different types of weapons, fuel for your rocket sled, and Taco Bell logos which restore your overall health meter. There are also warps that give your rocket an incredible speed boost (but do not give you invincibility, so you still need to dodge enemies).

Another feature of the game allows the player to create a custom desktop wallpaper by combining various Tek Kids against backgrounds chosen from the Flash Ops games, along with a Taco Bell "Think Outside The Bun" logo in a customizable position.
