Game Play

The player characters scroll through different places to clean out all the wealth that is in it and then attempt to escape. The places which the characters rob include a bank, a millionaire's mansion, a casino, a mint, a treasury, and so on.

Before they try to rob these places, there is first a practice stage. As they collect their loot, they must avoid or fight off cops and security guards and then escape in a waiting blimp.
