The Naked Gun: I.C.U.P. is a hysterical iPhone and iPad Entertainment game based on the movie, The Naked Gun, featuring Lt. Frank Durbin Jr., a dumb-witted cop who solves silly crimes in the most unconventional ways. If you have never seen any of The Naked Gun movies, you’ve missed some insanely obvious and stupid humor revolving around a dim-witted cop (Leslie Nielsen). This game is much like the movie with ridiculous cases, over-the-top character names, and cliche conversations that provide for hours of point-and-click strategy fun. The game spoofs modern television crime dramas and video games in a colossal way.
There are some very subtle cases where you may not grasp the joke at first, but as you continue on in your investigation the light will finally go on and you’ll get the punchline. There are dollars to earn, new suits, as well as furniture to purchase, and best of all Frank Durbin drives a green Pious compact car that tells him how good and Green he is almost every time he drives. You will follow clues, but at times come up empty, which will require you to visit Joe the informant in some back alley. There are dozens of cases to solve, which can be assigned in a variety of ways, and you must tap on everything to ensure that you leave no clue unfound. As if solving cases were not enough, you’ll get a chance to play several mini games such as a shooting game and a suicide jumper game where it is your job to figure out how to stop the jumper from jumping. To keep things straight during the game you have a handy notebook at your disposal that has dossiers, notes, achievements, your cases and more, as well as the app controls on the front when you access it from the bottom left of the screen. While Frank is funny, he is not the only outrageous character in this game.
Your squad mates and chief are as silly and expected as a Primetime television show, each with their own screwed up persona that adds to the overall experience. I had a blast playing this game and found that the time sliped away as I continued to wander around finding little hints and goofy punchlines, as I solved the dumbest of cases. Frank is awesome and at one point I found myself stuck inside a video game of past having to use a DOS prompt to find my way back to the iPad game I was playing. The storyline is very complex, but if you grew up in the 80’s or early 90’s you will definitely get the humor of days gone past. Even if you did not grow up in the old days, you will appreciate the simple yet obviously stupid humor that is sure to put a smile on your face. This game is on sale for the next week for only $1.99 instead of the regular $4.99 price — so pick it up while you can at the reduced price.

Episode 1 – Date with Destiny
My name is Sergeant Frank Drebin Jr., Detective Lieutenant , I.C.U.P. Unit, a special division of the police department. We had just spend months of late night stakeouts. Night after night of eating bad take out and peeing in Ed’s thermos.
We were on the case of a missing Councilman. A real heavy hitter down at City Hall. He tried to get in touch with me months ago, about some grand conspiracy he’d uncovered. Then he vanished! We dragged the lake and found his car, and a suitcase full of cash. He might have been trying to run or, as I indicated in my report, simply forgot where he parked his car.
Anyway, it was time to get this case to the court house. Time to roll.
