Description of RoboCop

Data East’s RoboCop is a decent PC port of a fun coin-op game, not to be confused with OCEAN’s horrible CGA port released earlier. This release, while still pales besides the Amiga and Atari ST versions which are near-perfect conversions of the arcade original, is at least on par with many other Data East releases. There are some similarities with the OCEAN version, such as the fact that you only have 3 lives in the game, and extra lives are hard to come by. In all other respects, though, this Data East release is much more faithful to the arcade hit, meaning that it’s a lot more fun to play. The controls are intuitive, although it’s still difficult to shoot diagonally or evade enemy fire, and RoboCop has only a limited number of moves and weapons. These gripes are valid for the original coin-op version as well, however, and by and large don’t detract much from the fun. In the absolute sense, RoboCop isn’t Data East’s best, but is definitely above average. And if you’re a fan of the arcade original, this is the version you should play.
