RoboCop 2 is an action game based on the popular science fiction film released in 1990, featuring the famous cybernetic cop. Like many other movies-to-game conversions of the '90s, it was published by Ocean Software, which took care of both the 8-bit versions (ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64) and 16-bit versions, including Amiga and Atari ST.
Special FX developed the Amiga version of the game. The studio did a great job integrating the film elements with the game, even though the videogame needed to be released at the same time as the film, so only preliminary assets were available. Following the plot, our hero Robocop will need to destroy the nuke factory, then try to arrest the evil Cain, who will take the form of "RoboCop 2" at the end of the adventure. Several cutscenes with digitized images of the movie are shown in the beautiful HAM graphic mode of the Amiga. It's a kind of lesser-known - not so popular - technical feature, so we strongly appreciate this choice.
