It's zany, it's wacky, it's totally brilliant and must be on your buying schedule if you haven't already got the full price version.

As Officer Bob, you've got to get out there on the streets and clear up all traces of villainous vermin to make your daily quota. These may include litter louts, drunks and even hitch-hikers.

However, at all times listen out for the APB, or All Points Bulletin, which will put you on the trail of the nastier baddies.

Catch one of these and force him into a confession, and you won't need to worry about the rest of your day's quota. It's not easy wringing a confession out of the bad guys, though, and you'll need to do it before the Chief arrives for it to do you any good, so work 'em hard.

To capture the villains, target your steering wheel cursor on the getaway car and blast your siren. If they won't stop, ram them off the road or shoot them if you've managed to pick up a gun.

Be careful not to shoot bystanders, or you could find yourself with too many demerits and a one-way ticket off the force in this brilliantly funny offering.

Great graphics and smooth scrolling make this a real gem of a budget blast.
