In Empire City: 1931 which is set in 1931 you are a federal agent that has to eliminate all criminal activities in New York City.
You must hunt the criminals down and shoot them one by one. To locate a criminal you just have to follow the arrow on the left or right of the screen. Killing criminals is done by moving the cross hair over them.
A countdown timer will start counting down if a criminal starts shooting at you. You must kill the criminal before the timer reaches zero or you'll loose a life.
New bullets can be collected by shooting at the bullet boxes that regularly appear in the game as other useful objects.
The criminals sometimes take hostages for protection. Rescue these hostages for additional points.
Firing your gun is done with fire button 1 and deflecting bullets by pressing the fire button 2.

Addictive for such a simple game!
Never saw this one and it's really fun for a FPS. It's very basic, shooting bad guys in the city, hotels, etc. in the 1930's. Basic controls, lousy sound (static but the essential sounds to play come through) and surprisingly tough as you get further into the levels.
Controls: (Wish more people would give this info!)
Fire == Control Key
Shield from bullets == ALT Key
Direction == Arrow Keys
Pause == "P" Button (doesn't always stop game!)
You'll figure out more on your own, including the eccentricities of the "shield" mode. Hope you enjoy and thanks Internet Archive! UPDATE: take some of that back. It goes only to Level 8 then starts over. Disappointing but still fun. Unlimited play helps.
