Pick up your pistol and be the cop you need to be in order to rid the streets of the criminals out to make your day hell. Aim wisely and quickly, otherwise your lives will be lost quickly in this 1st person arcade shooter, cleaning up the streets. The higher the difficulty level, the more crimes there will be to eliminate, but watch out for the other weapons that can help you along the way. Go straight into the mayhem, practice in the targeting range or have a friend back you up in two player mode.

The Arcade version has two game modes that can be selected by the operator: Arcade mode (the stages are played in strict order) and Street mode (a desired stage can be selected by players).

Home console version can be played with either a standard gamepad or light gun accessory.

  • The names of level three and four were changed
  • There are some changes in the levels itself, e.g. a removed hostile and missing death animations
