In a vicious Miami shadowed by crime, your task is quite tough since you are a law enforcer against numerous masterminds of the underworld. You are the skillful Don Ferrari, an undercover cop who is a specialist against crime. Elections will take place soon and the current mayor of the city hopes to re-gain his title and position. But his hopes and efforts are compromised by the actions of 7 different criminal lords. So the mayor grants you with a very fast Police Ferrari F40 and a 48hours protection from police arrest and requests from you to eliminate each and every of the crime "barons". The 48 hours limit is crucial, otherwise the police will pursuit you in case you break the law. You must drive through the crowded streets of Miami and seek and destroy a number of red sports cars. So, hit the pedal on the floor, shoot every suspicious car and make sure you don't shoot or crash other civilians. The action gets more interesting by collecting power-ups which produce extra weaponry!
It's a gorgeously simple game, with aesthetics that any full-priced software house would be proud of back to the days, and gameplay that any arcade junkie loved! All in all, Miami Chase is a very nice (and unique) action game. Works only on the 1Mb Amiga systems.
Ok, the game does not take the Amiga hardware up to its limits, but still, is a very colorful bird's eye view action game. The cityscapes (roads, building blocks, cars etc) are very well done and sprites (cars) move amazingly fast and smooth.
The sound consists of an intro music plus an Italo-Disco style soundtrack on the main menu (among the best for the Amiga). In-game we have to choose between nicely sampled SFX (explosions, gunfire etc) or music.
