Robocop review

The Rainbow Magazine (1990) - "RoboCop is an expert marksman. Just press your joystick and the impact of any one of your variety of weapons, including an Auto-9, machine gun and cobra gun, sends the scumbags flying up in the air before landing fiat on their backs. RoboCop can also punch the marbles out of yellow-haired karate kids and bald-headed brutes that are bigger than he is. You can hear the punches loud and clear.
It's all done in the name of justice, too. RoboCop is the good guy. Your mission is to make it past six levels of thugs, kidnappers, assassins and the powerful ED- 209 robot to do your final battle with Dick Jones, the ultimate crime king. The battle gets tougher as you climb through each stage."

    For something that was released before Commander Keen, this game does a really good job at parallax-scrolling. However the sound blaster can get annoying after a while. If you want to play this, I suggest muting the game.
