Crime Fighters

Crime Fighters (クライムファイターズ?) is a 1989 side-scrolling beat-em-up released by Konami for the arcades. The player takes control of an undercover police officer who is assigned to rescue a group of kidnapped girls from a crime boss.

Much like Konami's arcade version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (released during the same year), the game was available in a four-player dedicated cabinet, and both a two-player and four-player conversion kits (usually meant for either Atari Games' Gauntlet (1985 video game), Gauntlet II, and Konami's own Main Event). Unlike Ninja Turtles, each player character is identical, save for each one sporting a different palette swapped color.

Crime Fighters was followed by a sequel titled Vendetta (released in Japan as Crime Fighters 2).

    The reason of idleness and of crime is the deferring of our hopes. Whilst we are waiting, we beguile the time with jokes, with sleep, with eating, and with crimes.
