Techno Cop

Not an American user?


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.

Techno Cop ZX Spectrum Another message from control. This does not stop Technocop from picking up any bonus items that are lying around. To get back to the car he must go back the way he came in

Techno Cop DOS On the bright side, if my car gets wrecked, I can just swap into his -- every vehicle on the road is apparently virtually identical! (EGA)

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)
