Kidou Keisatsu Patlabor ("Mobile Police Patlabor", where Patlabor is a portmanteau of "patrol" and "labor", labors being the name of the large power suits) is a top-down strategy action game based on the manga and anime of the same name about a specialized police squad in a near-future Tokyo, which is formed to fight felonies perpetrated by criminals in large mech suits ("labors"), most of which are commonly used for construction and other heavy duty work.
The player controls Noa Izumi, a labor fanatic who joined the police force to pilot her own labor, as she takes on various criminals in one-on-one labor fights. Her Ingram has a powerful revolver for ranged combat but it only has a finite number of shots, so generally the player needs to get close and attack before the enemy does.
The game is the fifth to use the Patlabor license, and was developed and published by Bec/Interbec for the Super Famicom. Like every Patlabor game it was never released outside of Japan.
