In the age of remakes, one of the titles that couldn’t miss the party was Robocop, a total hit in the late 80’s, which finally makes its appearance once again. This free sci-fi action game, developed by Glu for download on mobile devices, takes us back to Alex Murphy as the part-robot, part-man officer created by OmniCorp as a way to fight against crime.

As for the technical aspect of Robocop, the game presents correct graphics, with a good Robocop modelling, but not the same for human enemies. There are some fps drops depending on the device you are playing on, due to the lack of full optimization. If you have a recent device, you won’t find any kind of issue while playing this game.
Robocop features a classic action gameplay, taking cover with the environment's available elements like boxes and cars. For shooting against your foes, you need to slide your finger on the left side of your device for getting out from your cover and hold on to the right side for aiming and opening fire. These kind of controls resemble classic arcade titles such as Time Crisis, now being adapted for new devices.
You will have several abilities available during your fights that will allow you take the most of your robotic body. Focus mode will let you shoot three consecutive times after you have tapped on your enemies. This way you will open fire without having to take risks. The Scan mode will give you information about your enemies’ weak points, their location and also which elements can be destroyed.
Robocop features upgrade functions for your abilities and weapons, as well as new improvements for your suit. For these, you will have to have to spend points that you earn during your missions according to your performance. There are also additional skills that can be unlockable like attacks from drones from the conglomerate OmniCorp industries.
