Description

Dick Tracy is a tie in to the 1990 movie adaptation of the classic comic strip, staring Warren Beatty and Madonna. While an action/adventure hybrid using this license was released by Disney for the PC and Amiga, Titus also held a license to the movie. This is a side scrolling action game, where you control Dick Tracy as he moves through five stages, shooting gangsters with an assortment of weapons. Each stage leads to one of the mob bosses, until you ultimately capture the big man himself.

Trivia

Development history

The reason behind the poor C64 version and others was that Disney pulled the plug on all versions when it became clear that they had badly misjudged the time it would take to get them out. No one was near done when the movie hit the silver screen. Also the movie wasn’t doing that well and the related merchandise wasn’t selling.
