Gumshoe suffers from the same technical problems that plague all of the Zapper titles. Aiming isn't always precise and it's entirely too easy to lose track of the hero. Once you get the hang of multitasking, Gumshoe becomes an engaging action game that elevates the genre past simple shooting gallery. Nintendo was on to something with this 8-bit classic.

Graphics, sound and presentation are slick and you will be missed out on a real gem (sorry!). An absolute must for light gunners.

Les graphismes sont du style dessin animé. Les personnages sont mignons et sympathiques. La musique est entraînante et accompagne le jeu à merveille. Le pistolet ajoute un intérêt supplémentaire car il nécessite une grande adresse. GUMSHOE est logiciel très divertissant qui plaira à coup sûr aux jeunes mais aussi aux joueurs confirmés.

C'est un programme amusant et très original grâce à une utilisation intelligente du pistolet. Une réussite.

Power Play
Vor allem das Spielprinzip hat mich beeindruckt (ungewöhnlich aber verflixt gut). Man darf nicht einfach wild drauflos ballern, sondern muß bei jedem Schuß genauestens überlegen. Totenschädel und viele andere Quälgeister fordern allzeit höchste Konzentration. Ob im Wasser, in der Luft oder zu Land - immer neue Hindernisse, Landschaften und Musikstücke sorgen für enorm viel Abwechslung, so daß Langeweile für längere Zeit ausgeschlossen ist. Ein gutes Actionspiel mit einen Schuß Taktik,
