A bit from my personal collection – Police Quest

Here we have some of my sealed Police Quest items in all their glory.

Still lacking english skills back in the mid to late eighties Police Quest was extremely difficult, not only because everything had to be done right, but the magnitude of ways you could die was just plain insane.. but super fun nonetheless.
The artwork on the first 3 boxes are absolutely beautiful..probably among my favourites..that artwork just screams 80’s police/detective..love it. 

In the 1980s, cop movies seemed to be split into one of two realms: the mismatched buddy cop styling of fare like 48 Hours and Lethal Weapon, or the farcical hijinks and Guttenberg-ness of the Police Academy series. According to Hollywood, being a cop was either good for a laugh and prank or two with your fellow cadets or was all about playing by your own rules and solving a case with a partner you couldn’t stand.
