Crime Wave Access Software, Inc. 1990

A clone of the arcade game "Narc". Control a police officer, and shoot your way through slums, inner cities, and more- eventually destroying an entire criminal organization. The plot is just there to window-dress the action part: the president's daughter is kidnapped, and it's up to you, "super crime fighter" Luke McCrabe to rescue her and save the day. Gameplay is simple 2D side-scrolling action, in which all you do is blast endless waves of baddies. Digitization is a technique that may be useful and attractive for adventure games, but for this kind of action game it just didn't work out - everything looks very pixellated, cardboard-cutout, and people's movements are very jerky (imagine moving paper dolls around).
