Lethal Enforcers (リーサルエンフォーサーズ) is an arcade light-gun game released by Konami in 1992. It was ported to the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Mega-CD in 1993, as well as the Super Famicom/SNES (with censorship) at around the same time.
Lethal Enforcers was built to use Konami's Justifier light gun (although standard controllers also work). The Mega Drive and Mega-CD ports will not function with the majority of other light guns (most notably the Sega Menacer), which has in turn caused a great deal of confusion over the years. No versions of Lethal Enforcers were ever officially sold without (blue) Justifiers, although for a second player to join in, a second, pink justifier would need to be purchased separately. The downside with such an approach is that purchasing both the Mega Drive and Mega-CD ports left users with an extra blue gun never likely to be used.
The goal of the game is simple: you're a police officer and you shoot the criminals before they shoot you while leaving the civilians unharmed. When using the standard controller, / shoot and reloads; when using the Justifier, pulling the trigger when aimed at any area of the screen shoots, and pulling the trigger when aimed away from the screen reloads. You can also use weapons some enemies drop, by shooting at the weapon icons which appear on the screen after killing the relevant enemy.
At least ten special copies of the Mega-CD version were known to be given away in a contest by the Japanese magazine Famitsu. [More information on this is needed.]
