All Points Bulletin - Instructions
APB - All Points Bulletin. Put your foot on the gas and let rip as you
roar through the streets of the city in a series of hilarious and wild
You play the role of Officer Bob, a tough Cop in this challenging cartoon
-style game, whose job is to patrol the streets of the city and apprehend
various criminals in your trusty Police Car.
Each day you are given a quota of offenders who must be apprehended before
the day is out in order to get a salary bonus and keep your job. These
include little louts, drunks and hitch-hikers. At times you'll recieve an
All Points Bulletin on a particularly dangerous villan who must be tracked
down and arrested.
Should you catch Sid Sniper, Freddy Freak or any of the other master
criminals, ,you must return them to the station for 'questioning'. If
they confess, you can forget about your quota for the rest of the day.
However, wringing a confession out of them is not that easy, and you must
be through before the Chief comes in. Waggle the joystick left and right
as quickly as you can - a grid shows how fast you're going and how close
the criminal is to confessing.
To Arrest an offender, you must position the Steering Wheel Cursor over
their car and switch on the siren. Continue to hold down the fire button
for as long as you need the siren. Some criminals may ignore you the
first few you signal them to stop, depending on the severity of their
crime. As the game progresses you can obtain a gun and shoot the cars,
but don't shoot innocent bystanders. APB offenders must be rammed off the
road and will not give themselves up without a fight.
If you collide with a vehcile while the siren is off, crash too hard or
injure an innocent party, you'll get a Demerit point. You'll also get a
demerit for every offender you do not catchon your quota. Collect too
many demerits and you'll be fired.
Visit the drive-in Donut shop for extra time, pick up money bags to
enhance your pay packet and stop off at Gas Stations to refuel. You can
also visit the Speed Shop and buy extra equipment for your car including
radar, armour, better brakes and faster acceleration. However, paying for
a souped-up car will be difficult if you've failed in your daily quotas
and not collected enough money.
Use the joystick.
