--story from the game intro to Gumshoe
To be able to play this game, you have to set up the NES Zapper Emulation:
Options->Select Device->Optical Gun
Now you can use your mouse as an NES Zapper.
Gumshoe's controls are quite simple. Shoot the Gumshoe to make him jump. Shoot him repeatedly and he can fly through the air.
Shoot enemies and dangerous objects to destroy them. Sometimes items pop out of destroyed enemies. If you grab a potion you'll become Pink and be able to take one hit without dieing.
Shootable objects flash a white border whenever you fire.
You must collect all the diamonds, or you won't be able to enter the last level.
|Just point and click!|
|When the game over screen appears, fire a shot. You will be able to restart the game at the last phase (ala Super Mario Bros. continue code)|
