The Enforcer is an action shooter game that supports light-gun. It was released exclusively for the Amstrad CPC+ home computers and the GX4000 console. It is available in cartridge only.
STORY / GAMEPLAY
The story takes place somewhere in the Prohibition times of the 20s. You are an FBI agent trying to shoot and kill gangsters who are smuggling illegal whiskey! Simple as that! The Enforcer is a classic shoot 'em up that supports the use of a light gun (a Trojan Phazer maybe) connected to your CPC+ but it can also be played using the keyboard or a joystick. During action, you must be careful not to kill innocent people as they often interfere! By shooting gangsters you get points that will help you proceed to the next level. Of note is that the game features three levels only but it's great fun to play!
GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics are colorful, with great details on the backgrounds. The city blocks are well drawn and this is definitely a graphics example that showcases the CPC+ and the GX's power. The sprites (though small) are nicely drawn and the action is pretty fast and intense. The game's sound is fair though, featuring only a few sound effects and an intro music tune that's nothing really special.
