One / Two Player
You're a cop confronting danger and suspense as you wind your way across the city. Your cop's beat is a maze of city blocks, and you must move the cop from the left side of the maze to the exit on the right.
Throughout the game you may encounter armed robbers, blockades, and other obstacles to prohibit you from finishing your beat.
The 3 numbers at the top of the play field represent the levels of 3 different options that can be found in different game modes and variations.
