As the rookie detective James (in a nod to the character James Bond), players must infiltrate the villainous Specter organization to rescue his partner Stacey. Armed with a handgun and brandishing a jetpack, James must dodge a variety of traps and enemy bullets while shooting away enemies and moving forward. The game includes six stages, with branching paths at certain points in the game.
Along with standard jumps (which are instantaneous) and crouching, both using the joystick, players can use the second button to perform a high jetpack jump. These jumps use up part of the jetpack's charge, which refills by defeating enemies.
The game did not receive any home conversions at the time, and was released nearly 40 years later for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch as part of Hamster's Arcade Archives series worldwide on June 29, 2023.
