- #gm0060_2 - This is a very unique opportunity to own these rare vendor's collectible. This game is in Mint condition, and includes the Dick Tracy Coffee Cup and Shirt Pin that was given to Distributors at the roll out of this new video game release. Vendors were often given these little 'perks' to help drive up video purchases. Released in January of 1990 by Bandai America, Inc., about the same time as the movie of the same name, the NES game Dick Tracy is easy to understand and yet challenging and a lot of fun. It is based on the comic strip character that was popular in the first half of the twentieth century. You play as the trench coat wearing greatest detective slooth, Dick Tracy. It is mostly a mystery game, therefore you must be a detective and gather clues to solve mysteries. There are five different crimes that have different levels of difficulty. To solve them you must find the 5 clues that are the evidence you need to make an arrest. Dick Tracy is a game that you have to use your head and think a little (not a high point these days) and is more than a bit challenging. But it also involves car chases, puzzle solving and clue finding. You must dodge bullets and shoot up some gangsters. There are four different weapons that you can use in the game. They vary from plain fists, the super punch, tear gas, the hand gun, and the tommy gun. Be careful who you shoot, as shooting an unarmed person will cause you to lose health points. The game style is platform, with overhead in the driving sequences, and the gameplay is somewhat like that found in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The graphics are quite good compared to some other Nintendo games. If you are a novice, you may have a hard time knowing what to do, but that will quickly disappear. Dick Tracy for NES is one of the more complex and creative games for the NES. And this rare, mint, factory sealed game with vendors perks are unique and highly sought after collectors items.
