It's time to clean up the streets as famed comic strip character Dick Tracy. Your mission? To wipe out crime lord Big Boy Caprice and his five evil henchmen: Itchy, The Brow, Lips Manlis, Pruneface, and Flattop.
The game spans six stages consisting of three rounds each. Move from left to right, blasting thugs with your revolver, but watch out for attacks coming from the background! To defeat mobsters across the street, you'll need to whip out your trusty tommy-gun and aim a cursor over anything that moves.
Tracy can also use his fists for close-range combat and jump to avoid obstacles or enemy shots. As you fire your machine gun, bullets will also damage surrounding fire hydrants, phone booths and parked cars! The second level of each stage has you crouched behind Tracy's squad car as you shoot down as many crooks as you can before cashing in your chips.
In between rounds are bonus levels offering three targets that pop-up simultaneously in the background: shoot the villains while avoiding innocent victims for extra points. Confront a boss character in the third round of each stage and teach the underworld that crime doesn't pay! ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
