An arcade shooter supporting lightgun input released for the Amstrad CPC+ and cartridge only.
You are an FBI agent in the era of Prohibition back to 1920s trying to shoot n kill gangsters who are manufacturing whisky! A typical shoot em up that features the use of a light gun (Trojan Phazer) with your CPC+, but also using the keyboard or joystick. Be careful not to kill innocent people as they interfere while shooting! By shooting gangsters you get points in order to proceed to the next level (the game features three levels only...). It's great fun to play, I liked it.
The graphics here are colorful with good level detail of the urban backgrounds and fast action. The sprites, although small, are nicely drawn. Note that this games is one of CPC+ game that used hardware sprites! Those are the birds flying, the gun sights, the cars passing and a few other sprites. The sound is adequate though, featuring an introductory tune at the main menu, and a few sounds FX during gameplay but no music.
