The player progresses through the game by defeating different gangs and gang leaders that are all connected to the killing of Joey Bane's father.
The game is very heavily a strategy game, utilizing a point and click interface. Each gangster ('hood') the player controls can have four subordinates that will help the character in a firefight.
