RoboCop Goes Renegade!

OCP is sending in Rehab Officers to clear the streets of Old Detroit, making
way for the construction of Delta City. When RoboCop sees helpless families
forced out of their homes as the bulldozers move in, he joins the resistance
movement to battle the Rehabs!

Armed with a new multi-weapon arm attachment containing a large-bore cannon
and a smart bomb, plus a gyropack for airborne assault capability, RoboCop
faces a battalion of ED-209's, tanks, heavy artillery and a new adversary,
OTOMO. The odds seem impossible, but remember - you're RoboCop!

Game Basics

RoboCop always has single shot firing and single missile firing capability.

Different types of weapons may be selected by picking up icons, but these can
only be used a limited number of times.

RoboCop's energy level can be replenished by picking up energy pods along the

RoboCop may also pick up repair icons for use in the Repair Section to mend
certain parts of his body.


Repair Section

During the game, RoboCop will accumulate damage to various parts of his body.
These have a detrimental effect on his normal functions, such as walking for
the Legs, firing for the Arms, jumping for the Body, and overall operation for
the Head.

A warning will appear on the screen of any possible malfunctions that non-
repair of a particular part of RoboCop's body may cause. You will also be
warned if a malfunction actually occurs.

At the end of each level, RoboCop is given the option to enter the repair
laboratory and mend certain parts of his body. The cursor initially appears on
his body and can be moved to his Head, Legs or Arms. Pressing Button A will
add ten points to that area, which can be powered up as many times as you have
tokens for.

Be selective in your use of repair icons, as you have a limited amount, and
they are quite rare.


Game Levels

Level One
RoboCop approaches Lewis and her colleagues after they have been attacked by
the warped Splatterpunks and cornered behind a burning vehicle. They surround
him, throwing broken bottles and shooting him as they appear from behind
doors, out of windows and from inside trash cans.

Level Two
RoboCop enters the derelict Rocket Motors factory and must negotiate baths of
old paint stripper, rickety floors and grumbling conveyor belts as they oper-
ate after all the years of decay. Robocop then has to face his toughest
adversary: Otomo, the highly adept Ninja.

Level Three
RoboCop dons a powerful jetpack and flies along the streets of Cadillac
Heights, avoiding the shells from the heavily armored tank he has set out to
destroy. Not only must he contend with the crumbling tenements and holes in
the road, he is also being beseiged by Rehabs and Splatterpunks, ganged
together to vanquish their mechanical foe. Pick up the smart bomb - it will
help him destroy the tank.

Level Four
With the fuel in the jetpack now spent, RoboCop must walk the way he has come
to the OCP tower to rescue his friends Nikko and Marie Lazarus. He must avoid
the same pitfalls he was able to fly over with such ease before... along with
contact and proximity mines which have been scattered in his path by the
Rehabs. ED-209 also lies in guard at the tower, waiting for his return.

Level Five
RoboCop has now made his way to the top of the OCP tower, where he is helping
Nikko to break into the Kanemetsu computer. He must go to the terminal and
face into the screen, and hold his access spike in place until the required
digits appear on the big screens. RoboCop must overcome two deadly Robot
Ninjas in order to complete his task.


Hints and Tips

- Duck while shooting enemies to avoid excessive damage.

- Use homing missiles where enemies are difficult to shoot with a gun.

- Remember that special weapons don't last forever; only use them when you
need them.

- While in flight, RoboCop is subject to gravity, and he will fall out of the
sky if thrust is not maintained.

- Don't overuse your thrusters, as your fuel supply is limited.
