Notes:  

[1] Licensed game based on Orion Pictures' 1987 cyberpunk action blockbuster RoboCop.

[2] Coding, graphics, music & sampled speech by Peter Johnson. Flexicrunch compression by Andrew Bond.


TRIVIA: [1] ROBOCOP was one of the first games where the coin-op was licensed from a computer game publisher. Ocean licensed the game when the film was still being scripted, but retained the home computer rights and sold off the coin-op conversion rights to Data East.

[2] In the identikit mini-game of ROBOCOP, players can actually construct the face of ex-Ocean development director Gary Bracey since he was one of a bunch of people photographed for it during game development. [Source: Interview with Peter Johnson (coder), courtesy of Codetapper's Amiga Site]
