Description of RoboCop

Data East's RoboCop is a decent PC port of a fun coin-op game, not to be confused with OCEAN's horrible CGA port released earlier. This release, while still pales besides the Amiga and Atari ST versions which are near-perfect conversions of the arcade original, is at least on par with many other Data East releases. There are some similarities with the OCEAN version, such as the fact that you only have 3 lives in the game, and extra lives are hard to come by.

In all other respects, though, this Data East release is much more faithful to the arcade hit, meaning that it's a lot more fun to play. The controls are intuitive, although it's still difficult to shoot diagonally or evade enemy fire, and RoboCop has only a limited number of moves and weapons. These gripes are valid for the original coin-op version as well, however, and by and large don't detract much from the fun.

In the absolute sense, RoboCop isn't Data East's best, but is definitely above average. And if you're a fan of the arcade original, this is the version you should play.

Ive figured out the fix for the shooting freezing up.
I changed the Emulation code under CPU to Simple and changed the CPU_type to slow, cpu cycles max

Game runs but you can't fire or do any certain movements. The program rip that is available is terribly buggy. For instance, when you use the space bar to fire, a bunch of horrible static sounds are played and the game continually locks up. You can't play this game in DOSBox no matter what you do.
