Description

Techno Cop is set in the near future. You are a cop who seeks to clear his town of all the criminal scum. The game consists of two parts; one driving-action and one sidescrolling-action. In the first part you drive around in your red Ferrari and destroy hostile cars; in the second part, you turn somersaults over gaps, use elevators and shoot lots of enemies until you reach the boss. After having killed / caught the villain, it's back to the road again for the next mission.

User Reviews

A bad port of an already perfunctory game. Genesis Ian Dawson (10)
Winning combination of driving and side-scrolling shoot-em’ up action with gore galore presented by Gremlin Graphics. Amiga Nick Drew (370)
