Codex Gamicus

You must rescue your girlfriend, being held hostage by a school's street gang!

River City Ransom was ported to two systems. The Super CD port contains Redbook music and digital sound effects as well as improved graphics, while the X68000 version features an expanded game world.

The game was later significantly redesigned by a different publisher, Atlus, for the Game Boy Advance and deemed River City Ransom EX.
