This is the original Crime Wave game from 1990, with original disks and manuals. It was one of the first games to use full motion video derived sprites to get that photo-realistic feel and also one of the first games to use the PC speaker to generate proper digitised sound and speech without a dedicated sound card. At the time it was a technological marvel, today it’s a museum piece, but perfectly showcases where video games were heading. Add in the cheesy 1980s feel (just look at the cover art!), terrible storyline and the gory action that was just simply not done at the time, you have a game that really is a classic of the era. The game itself is a side-scrolling shooter which is very similar to the arcade game Narc in both tone and gameplay. Controlling a police officer, the player shoots through slums, inner cities, and other locations, trying to destroy a powerful criminal organisation to save the President's daughter. I am selling this from my personal collection, and would like this to go to a fellow classic video game collector. Due to the age of the game, it is not known whether the floppies have degraded (likely), so this is sold as a collector’s item. If you are planning on buying this to play, do not buy this, and instead download an abandonware copy. Boxes and materials have some wear and marks considering their age, but are generally in good condition.
