In this spin-off from a popular TV cop show of the 1980s, Crockett and Tubbs are trying to smash a drugs ring bossed by Mr. J. You have to start at the bottom, initially busting the casual dealers before reaching their suppliers, and ultimately the casino-dwelling honchos.

This is done through a combination of driving and shooting, through an overhead rendition of Miami. When crooks are stopped they will often provide valuable information, although sometimes they can only be stopped by shooting them.

When you learn of a meeting, you can enter it on foot, either to gain evidence or make an arrest - but remember that a joint full of crooks will not simply allow you to do your civic duty. This is all done against a time limit, with a one-minute penalty for crashing the car.

Cover Artwork

Like in many Ocean games at the time, Bob Wakelin was assigned to create a painted cover artwork. It was finished and ads, posters and inlays were printed, when then agent of actor Don Johnson contacted Ocean and informed them that they cannot use this cover. The game boxes were released with a photograph then. The painted artwork can be found on ExoticA Wiki
