Man-tastic crimebuster RoboCop has a reasonably respectable track record in video games. He first appeared in arcades in 1988, a year after the movie. At the time, its punchy-runny-gunny shenanigans weren't the cliched ballaches they would become, and it was rather successful.
Most incredibly --hold on to your asses!-- itactually bore a close damn resemblance to the movie it was based on. Quite a feat for a game-of-the-movie, and an example for the drivel we've been subjected to since. As such, our robo buddy managed a sequel or two, and the crossover RoboCop Versus The Terminator. Which wasn't nearly as awesome as it sounds.
Still, though, RoboCop has featured on consoles from the ZX Spectrum to the Xbox, which is quite a legacy right there. Although let's not mention the latter, because 2003's FPS reboot was a real sack of shit.
So, anywho, perhaps the time is right for another go. Feast your eyes, ears and balls on his latest gaming venture for mobile devices. Fans of big ol' yellow trucks, piles of crates and futuristic weaponry with dramatic names like 'Titan' and 'Wolf' are sure to appreciate this.
