The player controls either Max Force or Hit Man, who are hunting down junkies, drug dealers and organized crime kingpins. Max and Hit are equipped with an automatic weapon and missile launcher. When an enemy is dispatched using the latter, they explode in a torrent of bloody body appendages. Some enemies surrender by being arrested and then float away with "BUSTED" over them, this is then added to your tally at the end of the level along with drugs and money confiscated from other enemies that they dropped when killed. The game's objective is to reach and destroy various drug dealing ringleaders.
