As an undercover agent of Chase Headquarters, your job is to patrol the streets and track down five criminals. You are given a mission briefing before you start which gives information on the suspect and what car they drive. Then you drive across the city without crashing into other cars, and catch up with the criminal's car. To arrest the suspects, you must keep bumping into their car until it is no longer functional. And you have to do this under a strict time limit. You can't afford to crash into cars or buildings or you waste time getting on the road again.

However, once you've caught up with your suspect, you are given more time. Your car is also equipped with turbo boosts, which you can use to gain extra speed if you are way behind the criminal. Each arrest is based on a "suspicion".

Amstrad 128K extras

In 128K machines, the Amstrad CPC version of the game will load all stages in one sitting. It will also play some speech at certain spots. Other Ocean Software games that had similar "extras" for these computers were "RoboCop" and "Dragon Ninja".

    • Winner Best 8-Bit Soundtrack
  • Celebrity cameos

    The characters in the original game covers and in the loading screens are supposed to be Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas. The game was not a licensed "Miami Vice" title, but it seems like it wanted to capitalize on a established TV show. And well, the stars of the show did pursue criminals in a supercar, but that one was a Ferrari.
