A detective (the titular "Gumshoe") named Stevenson must rescue his daughter Jennifer from the mob boss King Dom in this ridiculously difficult side-scrolling Zapper game, unreleased in Japan and long forgotten everywhere else. Somewhat unique in the fact the VS Multisystem version of the game was the first developed alongside the NES version.

Unused Graphics

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: These bonus items might just be really well-hidden secret items, but I doubt it.

Gumshoe bonus bullet.png
These bonus objects simply never appear in either loop on either version of the game. The bullet is a different graphic from the exploding bullet object that appears on the second loop onward (or from the outset of the VS version).

Gumshoe time.png
A Time graphic that seems to be intended for the in-game HUD but isn't used in either version. The time limit is pretty much never an issue, which might explain why this is unused.

Gumshoe go!.png
"Go!" in the in-game HUD font, possibly intended to be used at the beginning of each level. Stevenson already automatically moves, which makes this graphic redundant.

He has a bullet which he would fire, and apparently you would somehow remove his pants and then undershorts. This graphic only appears in the VS version; the graphics are blanked out in the NES version.

A gargoyle enemy that does not appear on either loop, in either version, even with hard difficulty dip switches set.

Revisional Differences

get clean rips of these songs

Aside from a myriad of gameplay differences that are outside of the scope of the wiki, one interesting change between the VS System version and the NES version is the music in Stage 2. In the earlier VS System revision, this music is an almost exact cover of the song "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves, which was a chart topper at the time Gumshoe would have been in development. The NES version's song has been changed to a theme more reminiscent of Gyromite (another game Hirokazu Tanaka composed for).
