Following the western shoot-out adventure game called "Mad Dog McCree" and the gangster detective game "Who Shot Johnny Rock?", comes the latest CD-ROM addition to American Laser Games: "CRIME PATROL".

Through a combination of advanced computer programming, video laser discs and multi-media technology, American Laser Games enables the player to become part of a real life action-adventure movie and interact with the characters on the screen.

As in previous American Laser Games productions, the player aims a gun on the screen with the aid of a mouse while super cool digitized footage scroll by.

"CRIME PATROL" players are destined to help law enforcement officers stop thieves, drug dealers, gangsters, terrorists and other criminals through increasingly difficult levels of action.

There is a wide choice of scenarios for each level of difficulty. As a Rookie, the player takes on gang members, armed robbers and other street criminals. A promotion to detective will mean working undercover against drug dealers and car thief rings. Once you are selected for a SWAT team assignment, you will confront bank robbers and terrorists.

Only a skilled player will be able to reach the Delta Force and deal with a criminal element threatening national security.

The game was filmed to give the player a participant's point of view. The first person camera follows along as law enforcement teams enter crime scenes. Bad guys will appear in various locations on the screen and try to send the player to the undertaker. If they succeed, you will hear their scornful bursts of laughter!

By shooting at the attacking thieves, gangsters or terrorists (that pop up continually), the player expends ammunition and has to reload his gun after ten shots. You reload by dragging the mouse to the lower right corner of the screen and clicking. So keep an eye on your bullets! You should be careful with your shots because innocent bystanders appear as well as gun-yielding hoodlums.

The guides and television news reporters covering the action within the game inform the player if they have missed or killed someone other than a bad guy, resulting in a loss of life.

The player can save their game at any point during the game with the possibility of continuing, after having lost his three lives, by clicking on "Continue".

Even though this game is challenging and will require much practice before becoming a top cop, you will enjoy it immensely!


The game is designed (music, fluidity of the action, scenery, etc...) to persuade you into being the hero of the day!
