Arcade action at is most enjoyable

A classic piece of Atari arcade magic, APB is a simple enough game but which provides plenty of good old-fashioned fun and which makes for an entertaining ride down memory lane. As Officer Bob, it's your job to take down all the criminals who are causing havoc all over town but instead of taking the form of a dull investigation-style game, APB allows you to take to the streets in your little cop car, chase after the bad guys and then ram them off the road. The game plays out like a top-down version of Chase HQ, with Bob haring around town, tracking down the perps and sounding his siren in order to get them to slow down. If they don't behave properly though, then you can start throwing your weight around, but be careful not to crash or take down innocents as you'll only earn yourself a demerit, instead of the cash rewards that come with successful arrests. There are also a few upgrades to be bought for your car and which help you in your quest to reach your quota. While not exactly complex or deep, APG is simply good old-fashioned fun. There's a lot of entertainment to be had from racing in all directions around town, locating the criminals and then using the long arm of the law to bring them in. The action is all quite nicely paced, with a good sense of speed and freedom and while the graphics are nothing special, there is a lot of personality on display here and which is backed up by a good sense of humour. If you're looking for an entertaining and undemanding little game, then you could do far worse that take a spin with APB.

Arcade action game with fun

It's a cartoonish looking fun and action game where the user will play a police officer by the name of Bob. The job that you have is obvious and that is to catch criminals on a daily basis while avoiding any of the demerits which can cause you to lose your job. You can minimize the demerits through your hard work. With continuous good performance and track record, you will be getting rewarded like having an upgraded patrol gear. The people you have to arrest are traffic rules violators and the other criminals. You are assigned a daily quote for such violators which if not met will make you earn demerits. If you catch a criminal that is assigned to you, extra points will be awarded. It's an overhead city map on which the actual patrol is carried out. The map scrolls in 360 dimensions. Criminals will have to be chased for arrest while the traffic rules violators submit quite easily. The graphics of this game are not much to talk about but the gameplay and plot is quite exciting to make it worthy of try. The other classic arcade style action game which I can suggest to you is Roadfighter.
