This is a side scrolling action game, where you control Dick Tracy as he moves through five stages, shooting gangsters with an assortment of weapons. Each stage leads to one of the mob bosses, until you ultimately capture the big man himself.
The graphics on the GX4000 console (and CPC+ of course) are colorful and the sprite scrolling is fluid. The hard-sprites being in pseudo Mode 1 with 15 colors (a feature of the CPC+ advanced video hardware). It reminded me a 16bit game version rather than an 8bit (16 colors at the backgrounds + 15 colors on the sprites!). The last though, reduces the number of sprites being used on screen at the same time. The sound is good on the CPC+ featuring good intro and in-game tunes (although I preferred the tunes on the CPC!) but no sfx.
