This game's gameplay is an everyday point and click shooter. It is a 'rail shooter' which is slow at the start but speeds up during gameplay as you finish each section. The sections change as soon as the game has scrolled enough.

This game is pixel by pixel drawn. Not that hard for the average pixel artist of today. But a marvel at the time this game was made. Movement of the bad guys isn't bad, nor is the movement of any other bystander. The gun when shot leaves a kind of splat on the screen for a few milliseconds, so it doesn't really make that much of a good effect.

Not that much of a concept you are Al Capone and you are being attacked by gangsters, you need to survive. Just shoot'em up.

This game must have been a great game in its own time and may still be if anyone can find a way to run it with a lightgun or a way to port it to an arcade machine or something. This game has had it run with me and I would give it a 10/10 for how good it would have been in its time, this would be 6/10 compared to nowadays. But hey these are the oldies and they are what the new games concepts are built on and refined with, so don't look at this game like its something not that great. It is one of the Mona Lisa's of classic rail shooter games.

The full game download has been replaced. Now the game should work like a charm when using Windows XP, Vista and 7.
