Magnum PI on the NES Might Have Looked like Super Magnum PI Bros

In my fevered 1980s dreams, a Magnum PI game was released on the NES and I was zooming down the virtual oceanfront highways of Oahu in my red Ferrari solving cased and making the world a better place.

What I never considered is that someone might have taken a different direction with a Magnum PI game. That direction might have looked a little something like TheRandomFactor‘s Super Magnum Bros. Not my dream game, but I certainly would have played it.
