Description of Hogan's Alley for NES

Advertisement
"Hogan's Alley" is the FBI's training camp tool to train new recruits. The game flashes "cardboard cut-outs" of innocent civilians and thugs in front of the player and the player must react quickly to "take down" the bad guys and spare the innocents.

Despite being rather short on story and depth, this game was nevertheless fairly popular. The game flashes three "cardboard cut-outs" of a mixture of bad guys and innocent civilians. The player needs to react quickly and shoot the thugs while sparing the bystanders and other friendlies (such as police officers). The game gets more difficult and faster as it progresses.

The player never escalates to shooting "real" thugs and gangsters, but the scenery changes from a blank wall to a city scene with the cardboard cutouts.

The game is available only as a standard upright. The controls consist of a single light gun. This was a rather novel input device for a game of its time and added to its appeal.
