|Genre(s)||Beat 'em up|
This game is basically a brawler where the police officer has to eliminate a series of armed thugs that are trying to take over his anonymous city. The leader's name is simply the letter "M" and he calls his troops "The Soldiers of Darkness." Players can only move from left to right; like in a side-scrolling platformer. The player can also regain his health on certain power-ups, in addition to getting a temporary boost in his muscle power and the temporary ability to access weapons.
There are five levels in this game; which are divided into sub-levels and end with a confrontation with an all-powerful boss. Each section can be crossed over without killing anyone. However, complete pacifism doesn't work and the player is required to destroy a minimum amount of them on the screen.
