The game has a WideOpenSandbox world and ImmersiveSim elements, and allows players to get up to all kinds of shenanigans in an urban city, making it like a distant precursor to something like ''GrandTheftAuto''.

* UnbuiltTrope: The creator of the game in the ending basically takes a jab at people who dedicate so much of their time just to finish a video game and find all of its secrets no matter how bad the game is. This is before the time of players that play to find every hidden EasterEgg and developers making their games catering to that type of behavior.

** If you've lost all your health, you can go back to full life when laying on the ground before dying if you just press A and B 3 times. It's cheating, but the game never seemed to expect you to beat it fairly anyway.
