National Game Registry 1988: NARC

original platform

key personnel
Eugene Jarvis (direction)
Brian Schmidt (music)

How did this game get released?  Besides being brutally violent, including the ability to smash junkies with the heroes’ cars, the game is stocked full of drug culture.  Some enemies even attack the player with dirty hypodermic needles!  Defeated enemies may be either arrested for a cash bonus or executed for fun!  The gameplay is something of a combination of Contra and Double Dragon.

NARC was inducted on August 23rd, 2009.

Return to the National Game Registry to view more inductees.
