TRIVIA: Coder Peter Johnson included a rare easter egg in this game. If you hold down the left mouse button during while booting the game, a pre-release advertisement for ROBOCOP appears.

According to Johnson, it may have been done partially as a proof of concept for the digitised graphics in the advert. The graphics were captured using a B&W Atari ST digitiser attached to his Canon camcorder, which was pointed at either a movie poster or a magazine advert for the film. The B&W graphics were then hand-tinted to match the original as closely as possible. Apparently, back in 1988 colour digitisers were hugely expensive (if available at all!).
