Description

Today, if a daughter of the President goes missing, I would look in the nearest bar. However, in the near future, the explanation is that she's been kidnapped by a Criminal Brain robot, and held in a booby-trapped lair. As the advanced hybrid Electrocop, your task is to rescue her within an hour.

Gameplay involves working your way through the complex warehouse maze, unlocking coded door along the way. Extra weapons can be collected to help dealing with the drones. There are also computer terminals to buy new weapons - these also have simple subgames built in. What makes the game unique, and intended as a showpiece for the Lynx hardware, is that full 3D is used, so that the character walks in and out of the screen as well as across it.

Trivia

Atari 7800 game

Atari was planning to release a different Electrocop game for the Atari 7800 console. The development was handled by outside contractors. While the game is said to have been finished, a prototype has yet to be found (as of September 2014). However, artwork that Amy Hennig did for the game has appeared on the internet.
