You know how at fairs they have the shooting gallery or dart throwing at balloons? Gumshoe took that thought and the brilliant idea of a side scrolling game only to put them together for weirdness. June 6th, 1986 was a really good day for people who love silly hats and hate balloons.
I need to watch this movie again. I love the toys and have a pretty nice carded collection but it's been literal decades since I've seen it.
