Shack's Arcade Corner: Undercover Cops

Freeze! It's time for Arcade Corner!


On this week's episode, we are taking a look at the lesser-known arcade brawler, Undercover Cops. Undercover Cops is an arcade-style beat 'em up video game developed and published by Irem, originally for the arcades in 1992. It is Irem's first attempt in the modern beat 'em up genre that was founded by Capcom's Final Fight. The arcade cabinet was pretty rare in the United States and saw more success in Japan, with some ports to consoles. Irem went on to find greater success with Metal Slug. Check out the video to learn more about this forgotten gem from the arcades.
