Description

This game involves the use of the Nintendo Light Zapper, and has, truly, no plot. You are in the police station doing target practice, either with three targets at a time with at least one innocent person, or in an alley with both good and bad targets in windows and walking on the sidewalk. Then there's Trick Shot, where you shoot the cans, trying to make them land in a slot for points, or at least not let them fall to the ground.

Trivia

References

The name, and likewise the gameplay within, are a reference to an FBI-owned training facility in Quantico, VA called "Hogan's Alley." The Alley is actually a cluster of several complete, but functionless, buildings and streets meant to train federal agents in urban scenarios, sometimes employing firearms and cutout targets as in the game. Part of the real Hogan's Alley can be seen in the beginning of the film Silence of the Lambs.
