DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Dick Tracy the video game for the NES was released in 1990 by Bandai.

Gameplay

You play as Dick Tracy, the famous detective. Your goal is to solve multiple mysteries while trying to keep wrongful accusations and innocent killing on a low. Throughout the game you collect several clues (which you have to write down manually, Dick Tracy doesn't seem to write down most of his clues), which will lead to solving the mystery. You have multiple suspects and have you have to interrogate (but find them first), to solve the ultimate mystery.

You have two modes, a driving mode and a side scrolling mode. Let's start with the driving mode, which is absolutely terrible. You are stuck to your lane, and can't drive around freely, damage once you crash into other cars, and to add to this, there are snipers on every roof. EVERY roof. They will constantly shoot at you and you will lose health really quick.

To add to the difficulty, you only have one life, and once you die it's game over. Your car has the option to shoot, but it will only shoot horizontally, and the snipers are diagonally on the roof. To get rid of the snipers, you actually have to stop your car and shoot them. This takes a lot of time and is very hard.

Once you get to inside a building, the game switches to side scrolling mode. Now you can walk, punch and shoot. However, since you are a cop, you can't shoot people without a gun, if you do you will lose half a life. You are allowed to punch them to death though…

Once you completed the building, you'll find a suspect. You have two options: Interrogate and arrest. If you interrogate someone, he or she will give you a location, WRITE THIS DOWN! Dick Tracy doesn't, so you have to do it yourself! If you choose to arrest them, the chief will get mad at you because you don't have enough evidence. You are going to need all 5 clues to be able to arrest the suspect.

The game has 5 levels, all with different suspects.

Dinkleberg's experience

Holy shit. What an insanely difficult game. There are so many snipers! It's almost impossible to make it through the level without dying by snipers. You'll have to kill all of them (they don't respawn), which takes a lot of time, and you'll probably get hit a couple of times. The idea of this game is really fun, but it is insanely flawed. The clues are hard to find, and Dick Tracy thinks its a good idea to only write down half of the stuff he finds out. I never made it past the first level, so I can't tell anything about the other levels, but if you like a challenge, Dick Tracy is something for you!
