Miami Vice is a 1986 action computer game published by Ocean Software for the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum as a tie-in for the television series of the same name. The music was composed by Martin Galway. The game would later inspire Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and be partially featured as a pun in the opening cutscene with the Commodore 64 load screen.
Crockett and Tubbs are trying to smash a drug ring that is ruled over by Mr. J. Players have to start at the bottom of the drug dealing circuit before working their way up to the casino-dwelling big shots. Shooting and driving are done on an overhead view of Miami, Florida. Crooks provide valuable information after they are arrested. There is a strict one-limit time limit for every attempt to arrest a crook or to gather evidence inside a building.
Zzap!64 were unimpressed by the game, awarding it a score of 30%. The only aspect of the game to impress the reviewers was the music.
