Police Stories is a PC / Windows tactical top-down shooter developed by Mighty Morgan as their debut project.
The game focuses on a story of two police operatives – John Rimes and Rick Jones, who specialize in high-risk police undertakings, such as infiltrating gang hideouts and releasing hostages.
The action is set in the 90’s in the United States of America. Instead of showing the realistic aspects of law enforcement officers’ job, the developers took their inspiration from the 90’s movies and TV series, showing a gloomy and brutal life of policemen, who often have to bend the rules in the name of justice.
The PC / Windows release of Police Stories is a top-down shooter with a quite realistic gameplay – it takes only two to three shots for the criminals to kill our protagonists, thus the players have to exercise caution and think on their feet.
As the main protagonists are police officers, they have to “play by the book”, thus it is a high priority to apprehend the suspects without resorting to violence. This is where the dynamic AI system proves its worth, making each reaction of the criminals unique – there are those among the suspects who surrender at gunpoint, those who require some additional persuasion in form of a warning shot, and finally, there are those who fight to the death.
The player gets to control only one police operative, while the other’s actions are dictated by the AI. The AI’s attitude can be modified by the orders given out by the player. The gameplay is even more thrilling thanks to the sightline system – our protagonists cannot see what is behind the closed doors until they open them. Moreover, criminals, hostages, and pieces of evidence are placed randomly within a location, making each playthrough unique and fresh.
The game offers an extensive single player campaign; nonetheless, each mission can be completed in a local or on-line co-op mode.
Police Stories features two-dimensional retro pixel art graphics. When designing the visuals, the developers drew their inspirations from the early 90’s video games released on PCs and Amiga computers.
