Techno Cop

Post  msistarted on Fri Dec 10, 2010 9:34 am

Techno Cop is a 1988 action video game for the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Apple II, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS and ZX Spectrum. It was subsequently ported to the Mega Drive/Genesis in 1990. The gameplay combines pseudo-3D driving in the graphical style of Outrun with side-scrolling action as the player controls a police officer driving to and then moved through various seedy locations in a one-man war against crime. The game was the first game on the Genesis to have a warning label due to its violent content.

The game was largely panned by video game critics for its simplistic graphics, sound, and the fact that many of the levels looked too similar.[citation needed]

[edit] Storyline

In the single-player side-scrolling game the player is a cop in a seedy futuristic urban city. Armed with a pistol, the player has to kill various thugs, before the timer runs out. While the game has several levels, the background in the game does not change often.

The other half of the game is a driving sequence, similar to other computer games such as Roadblasters.

Techno Cop was one of the first games made for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis from a third party developer and was part of an attempt by Razorsoft to test what sort of content would Sega allow on a game made for one of its systems.
[edit] Violent content

Techno Cop was allowed to have blood in it,[who?] provided that it had a parental advisory label on the game's box. The violent content surfaced when a police officer shot a criminal, with the criminal being blown apart.
[edit] Reception

Computer Gaming World gave the game a positive review, saying "despite occasional boredom in the driving segment, the game is extremely absorbing."[1]
