Overview

Undercover Cops is an Arcade brawler from Irem that was released exclusively in Japan. It was ported to the Super Famicom in 1995, and while this version is also Japan-exclusive, there was a North American version that was planned but cancelled. The Arcade version was later released for Mac and Pc as part of the Irem Arcade Hits.

The player, as one of three specialist cops referred to as "City Sweepers", must clean up the mean streets of a near-future New York of its thugs and mutants.

In addition to standard attacks and improvised weapons found in the environment, each character has a strong and special attack which drains health whenever they are used. They are best employed for crowd control, where the player might otherwise be surrounded and overwhelmed.

Many of the developers who created the Arcade version for Irem would later leave to form their own company, Nazca Corporation, which would create the Metal Slug games among others. Undercover Cops was successful enough to spawn a manga adaptation and a spin-off for Game Boy: Undercover Cops: Hakaishin Garumaa.
