This is a great retro shooter, based on a very interesting film idea. In the game you play as Tracy, shooting criminals in front and behind of him with a pistol and over on the far wall with a tommy gun. Although Dick Tracy was primarily a kid's film, there is a lot of violence in this game, what with the central objective being to shoot everything in sight before it shoots you. However, as much violence as there is, there is enough cut scenes to give you an idea of what the story is about as well. Overall, this is a great game for the Genesis/Megadrive, and I advise anyone who has one to get this game and see the film.
What a horrible game! I would describe Dick Tracy as a run-and-gun
platformer but that would kind of a lie as it is horrible slow and
plodding with no sense of excitement at all. It's one of those horrible
games where that generic baddies shoot at you and you see this little
white dot that is supposed to be a bullet move across the screen very
slowly. In real life it would easy to dodge but the little Dick Tracy
sprite moves likes he's stuck in cement.
There are some levels where you shoot the place up but you can do very little damage and since nothing becomes of it other than the background changing slightly, it's kinda pointless.
The music is awful too. Who makes these awful tunes? The graphics do resemble the bright primary colors of the comic-strip though and it's pretty much the only positive thing I can say about this otherwise completely disposable game.
