Shack Reels: Shack's Arcade Corner: Robocop

Enforce the law with some heavy firepower as Greg takes a look back at RoboCop this week in Shack's Arcade Corner.


It's your move. Greg takes a look back at 1988, when RoboCop patroled the arcade cabinets.

      many quarters spent just so I could hear the soundbytes. I think I snuck into the screening at a dollar theater after I saw the cabinet at an arcade because I thought the game was so cool. Man was my mind blown.

      Awesome man, this game was ahead of its time. I saw it first at the Airport which had so many rad cabinets so I hung out there when ever I could just to watch the free play and see what was new.

      Was a cool game I loved Crime City so this felt very similar but not as many power ups sort of a clone both where rad games.

      Good times.

      Great choice! Robocop was a lot of fun, and was very difficult. It was definitely a quarter guzzler.

      Sunset Riders is going to be awesome! Great game as well - nice job!

      There was a bug where if you had the big huge gun and used it to kill a mid game ed209 while kneeling the score would continue to go up. I somehow randomly found it and used it every time to get the high score.

      Just one nitpick: the computer/console versions were before the arcade one. Even in the title (0:14 in the video) it says "licensed from Ocean Software", the home versions' developer, whose logo is shown everywhere at 1:41 in the video.
