    HEADLINE HARRY NEEDS YOU!

    Headline Harry, editor par excellence and staunch believer in the truth, dreams of making the U.S. Daily Star America's #1 newspaper. However, Marvin Muckraker and his band of yellow journalists at the Diabolical Daily are turning Harry's dream into a nightmare! They're scooping leads, twisting facts, and printing sensationalized lies. They're giving reputable journalists everywhere a bad name. And what's worse, they're SELLING MORE PAPERS!!

    As Harry's ace reporter, it's your job to outsmart these saboteurs - to uncover the true stories and get them on the front page first. It's a race to the deadline that will take you across the country and back through time. You'll encounter false leads, lying informants, unethical tricks, and all kinds of unexpected treachery. It may even get weird. But it'll all be worth it. Because every story you file first will get you one step closer to winning the Reporter of the Year award, tossing The Diabolical into the trash where it belongs, and making Harry's dream come true!
