Based on the 1987 movie of the same name, Robocop allows the player to control Robocop. The majority of the game is a side scroller.
Robocop can punch unarmed citizens and shoot armed citizens. Different weapons can be picked up from enemies, and power-ups to restore health and/or energy. Following levels, Robocop will have to match a criminal's face to the proper mugshot and engage in a first-person shooting bonus round.
