RoboCop 2D is an excellent freeware remake of RoboCop, a fun arcade platformer that was ported to the PC by Data East. Like the original, you play RoboCop, a cyborg police officer. Your goal, like in all platform beat 'em ups, is to roam around huge levels – in this case, the streets of Detroit – killing hordes of baddies that get in your way. However, there is nice diversity that makes the game more interesting than your typical platformer: for example, your goal in one level is to rescue a hostage without allowing her to get hurt.

The game is still as fiendishly difficult as the arcade (and Data East) version, mostly because RoboCop is slow compared to the baddies, which means he cannot dodge every bullet. This means the gameplay is more or less still a matter of "shoot first, ask questions later" but with a lower frustration level, thanks to an increased firing rate and the fact that you can now aim diagonally. As if keeping the gameplay faithful to the original were not achievement enough, Park Productions also updates all graphics to crisp SVGA (although it still looks retro, which is nice), adds cutscenes, good MP3 music, tons of new sound effects, and – best of all – larger and more varied levels. Whether or not you are a fan of the original game, RoboCop 2D is well worth your time if you prefer challenging 2D action games to easy, cartoony ones. With nine huge levels and literally hundreds of enemies, this underdog will keep you occupied for hours on end. Highly recommended!
