    TRIVIA
    Dead Connection was released in July 1992.

    This game was unpopular in Japan because the Mafia theme was not proper to Japanese gamers. A very few boards were released in Japan.

    This game seems to take specific inspiration from the the 1987 mobster film 'The Untouchables'. Two of the main characters bear an uncanny resemblance to Kevin Costner and Andy Garcia who both starred in that film.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Bonus points: In Stage 1, 5000 points are hidden in the safe. Hit it to get the bonus points.
    • Emeny's bullets can be stopped by the machine gun and the shotgun.
