RoboCop has a long history in the cinema industry and not only, managing to capture us with its amazing story. It is more than obviously that the idea of a nigh-indestructible robot policeman is simply perfect for a video game as well, but what about this most recent Official RoboCop Game? Does it stand any chance in front of so many other popular iOS and Android games? And what about the fact that it isn’t entirely free, as initially speculated? That’s exactly what we are going to find out. In the first place, RoboCop is one of those characters who have successfully managed to become surprisingly close to our hearts. The action is set in 2028, presenting us one of the best cops from Detroit (Alex Murphy) as being critically injured in one of his missions.
That’s how he ends up a part-man and a part-robot police officer, thanks to the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp. But what do you think about the chance to be the one that becomes RoboCop, the ultimate law enforcement officer who tries to defend the citizens of Detroit? Gameplay is fairly simple, giving you a variety of different ways to take out your robot or human enemies. You can use drone strikes to defeat larger groups of enemies or you can shoot them one by one; even more, feel free to scan your targets with body heat vision, which means finding out their precise location, as well as their weakest points and don’t hesitate to save human hostages and return them to their homes.
Even more, graphics aren’t bad at all as long as they look crisp enough, not to mention the minimalist control system. But unfortunately, we must also agree to all those several users that have already complained about game’s tricks that could led you into spending more and more money.
First of all, this official RoboCop game is supposed to be available for free, but as you can anticipate from the title, you also have the possibility to pay money for some extra items that could make a huge difference, so it is not entirely free after all. A decent weapon is around 50$, while best weapons in the game can end up costing even 100$; and you are also advised to update your robotic suit to the latest technology that OmniCorp has to offer as well, so we see the decision of listing it for “free” as being an unethical one. It is obviously that its creators are here to explore one of those psychological principles of human addiction, but not all of us could afford paying that!
Anyway, as our source mentions, those who want to give it a try and see how things go can download the RoboCop game via the Play Store, but we have already warned you! What good for thinking that it is free and having no chance to win without paying some extra money for that? So, at the end of the day, we are personally disappointed by what it could have been an amazing game, but our impression has nothing to do with this character. RoboCop will always have a special place in our hearts!
