Game Reviews

What a dump! As detective Larry (a.k.a. Dirty Larry), you must rid the streets of scum. There's no recycling here! Button up your trench coat and take on pyromaniacs, bikers, and mad scientists. Go ahead, get dirty.

Welcome to the mean streets of Steelburg. U.S.A. We join our hero in the office of the chief of police. The chief is livid about the three cars Dirty Larry has crashed this week (all in the line of duty, of course). After reprimanding the renegade cop. he sends him to the Knight Shade Hotel to apprehend one Harold Snuff, a.k.a. Mr. White, an Iceman boss!

Talk about all-out action! This game packs it in. You'll definitely get a kick out of the story and the accompanying cinemas. Lock and load, then get ready for a blast with Dirty Larry. Renegade Cop!

Ready to play cops 'n' robbers? Atari's Dirty Larry: Renegade Cop puts you on the streets with the toughest cop in Steelburg. Larry's just wrecked his third car this week. No more cruising, he's back to walking the beat.

Cruisin' for a Bruisin'

Larry's done it again. He failed to follow correct procedure when he arrested Mr. Big. So now, Mr. Big and his nefarious gang are out to rule the streets. Of course, Larry's going to stop 'em.

This side-scrolling action game is standard police issue. The game play is simple point-and-shoot action. The variety kicks in with the graphics, which are excellent. Notice the trash on the ground, the garbage spilling out of trash cans, and the ripped wallpaper in the hotel. You even get entertaining story line graphics between levels.

You, as Larry, cruise through seven, intricately detailed levels fighting oncoming thugs. Mr. Big's mobsters range from gun-toting Gang Dudes to Pyromani-acs, who set themselves on fire and run wildly at you.

Wise Guys, eh?

Larry starts out with a pistol and 20 bullets. Luckily, some bad guys cough up 10 bullets, while others add onto your lifeline. These life-saving power-ups appear randomly, so use your ammo sparingly and avoid hits as much as possible.

As for sound, there's no looping music, which is a plus. Just simple "bangs" and punching noises. The opening story line has a great menacing music track to get your adrenaline pump started.

Go Ahead Make Your Day

Even though this game is straight forward with few surprises, its lack of continues gives it a nominal challenge. The bald, musclebound meanies in the hotel are no girfy men. They're tough and they like to get in yer face. However, after a few cruises through a level, you'll be able to easily predict when and where thugs come your way. You'll then be able to shoot them offscreen.

If you're an aficionado of Lynx graphics, throw on your trench coat and fight crime with Dirty Larry. If you need finger-burning action, you'd best look on different streets.

ProTips:

  • When you hear the motorcycle rider coming, shoot offscreen. You can blow him away before you see him.
  • Don't even try to use your gun against the big guy in the White Hotel. He'll get in yer face and beat you up before you can pull the trigger.
  • Don't stand too close to the Pyro-maniac when you destroy her. Her last breath of flames will bum you.
  • Don't waste your bullets. Low-level attackers can be popped with only two shots.
