Omoikkiri Tanteidan Haado Gumi: Matenrou no Chousenjou is another of Bandai's licensed games for the NES and its Famicom Disk System, this time taking that of a TV show produced in Japan about a team of detective schoolchildren who attempt to foil the plans of an enigmatic thief, sort of like the Japanese equivalent of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?.
The goal of the game is to search for clues behind the golden masked antagonist's crime and find a way to recover the stolen loot. While the game has action elements, such as fighting armed robbers in the street with a catapult, the core of the game is the adventure mystery puzzle that the player must solve by walking to different buildings and talking to the NPCs that inhabit them.
Because the show is unheard of outside of Japan, the game was never released outside that territory.
