Crime Fighters© Konami

If you enjoy retro side-scrolling beat 'em ups, this week's Arcade Archives release by Hamster might be of interest.

Konami originally launched Crime Fighters in arcades in 1989 and it arrived in the same year as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game. Your job is to go undercover as a police officer and rescue hostages from a gang, as you take down every last baddie. Here's the official description:

"Infiltrate the base of a dark crime gang, with the goal of rescuing a group of beautiful women who have been kidnapped. Take down baddie after baddie with various fighting moves and weapons."

As usual, this will set you back $7.99 / €6.99 / £6.29 (or your regional equivalent). Check out the screenshots and video below:
