Crime Crackers is a first person perspective RPG game that features cartoon characters and the classic rpg gameplay.

Beyond the far distant future, or the Milky Way.
20 years from the galactic war, "Crime Crackers," is a bounty hunter in the galaxy, on behalf of the federal government has been against the criminals.

Now, Emilia had joined the spacecraft bounty hunter "pink dolphin" and she get into the "Dolphin team," It's time to sail! Let's the adventure begins.

There are many stars out there in the vastness of space...and where there are stars, there are also crooks who make a living in outer space! These worthless no-gooders steal and plunder and cause trouble whenever it is possible. However, where there are crooks, there are also police. In an effort to stop intergalactic crime, the "Galaxy Police" were born and they are also known as GG, or the Galaxy Guard. While the GG is somewhat successful in their efforts to prevent criminals from plundering the valuable resources of the universe, some jobs are just too big for them to handle.

Here's where you come in; you control the team of wacky heroes who take care of the jobs that even the GG can't deal with. Flying through the Milky Way in a Pink Dolphin space craft and donning the title of Crime Crackers, you control the Pink Dolphin team, which has six members in it. First, you have Emilia F. Alcanett, the optimistic captain of the PD team. She hopes to be as great as the "Cosmo Guardians", an elite group of galactic protectors. Emilia is searching for her brother, Cain Alcanett, who flies in a space craft known as the Great Shark. Cain is a Cosmo Guardian of great skill and he protected Emilia in the past, but disappeared one day. Emilia's feelings for her brother are strong (one of the reasons she became a Crime Cracker) but Cain doesn't really look related to her at all (he or Emilia may be adopted or something). Ms. Alcanett is young and somewhat inexperienced, but she has a good heart and is skilled in small handguns. It's is also said that her I.Q. is approximately 300!

Next, you have two other members who are almost always at Emilia's side and join her in her battles with the various unknowns in space: Doran and Leaza (spelled Riiza in Japanese characters). Doran is the brute force of the team (of some kind of dragon species) and specializes in heavy firepower and big guns. He is also older and more mature and tries to prevent Emilia from making mistakes. Leaza is a catgirl of few words. She occasionally locates areas by pinpointing their exact coordinates, but her real specialty is in swordsmanship. Unlike Emilia and Doran, Leaza must get close to her enemies since she relies on the power of the sword.

Finally, you have three other members of the PD crew. Parrot, a bird man (looking like a giant parrot) who is the engineer of the team and takes care of maintenance of the Pink Dolphin ship. You also have Core-Log, a small hovering support droid that provides system information. Core-Log has another function too; it carries around another member of the CC team, Potpourri Vamp. Potpourri Vamp is a peculiar creature known as a "Cyber Elf" who mostly inhabits cyberspace, but she can manifest a physical form as long as Core-Log is around. She loves shopping and having fun, but doesn't care much for serious business.

Together, the PD team get the job done. Their first mission? They must go on a search and rescue job. However, what seems like a simple rescue mission becomes something more and you go to various places, including a "zombie planet" and even prison! Eventually, you'll witness pieces of the past, betrayal, and eventually unravel an old mystery which unleashes a hideous secret...The Vaiten, a thing that only knows destruction. The only way to rid the galaxy of the Vaiten is to...well, I won't say, but you must enter a place so twisted that it tests the willpower of humans and all other life forms who enter it.

The gameplay is a mix between a gun game and a first person shooter: When the gunsight is not activate the player controls the character movement and when is active he moves the gunsight and can fire the different weapons.

There are different missions but the game is linear, and the next mission could only be played after complete the previous one. Between missions the player can use the credits that he earned in the previous missions to buy next armors, weapons, items or goods.

The Character Designer for this game is the talented Kokomai of the Akaikutsu Club. You can visit Kokomai's site at this link. One of the main programmers of this game is Michelle Ahiko, who also went on to aid in the production of Wild Arms and Wild Arms 2 (Wild Arms 2nd Ignition). She provided programming support for WA2 and did some Event Scripts and Field Programs in WA.

Another person of mention is the great music composer and vocalist, Noriyuki Asakura, who composed soundtracks to the anime series Rurouni Kenshin and various video games such as Tenchu, Way of the Samurai, and Crime Crackers 1 and 2. He is well known for combining traditional Japanese music with elements of rock, jazz, and other world music in great style. You can visit Asakura's official website here, and you can also read an interesting interview with Noriyuki Asakura here. The interview has a bit of unusual information regarding the Crime Crackers games as well. Interestingly enough, someone has used the popular singing synthesizer application software, Vocaloid, to have Hatsune Miku sing the ending song titled: "Crime Crackers".
