Dick Tracy is a game released for the Genesis and Master System. The game is based on the movie adapted from the comic strip of the same name.


The plot of this game is based loosely on the movie. Big Boy Caprice, the main nemesis, has murdered the father of Dick Tracy's wife, and now the gumshoe is out for revenge.

This is a platform shooter/"beat-'em-up" game. Plenty of gunmen will attack our hero from all the sides. Dick can only move to the right or to the left. He can use his pistol gun to take out enemies who are in front or behind him. Since he can't approach enemies who attack from the depth of the screen, he can dispose of them using his machine gun. When the enemy is too close, Dick will punch him instead of shooting.
