Robocop - C64 Game Cheats

Game Review & Description

Robocop on the Commodore 64 is what happens when you cross the line between man and machine, then throw in a joystick for good measure. It's a digital odyssey through the crime-ridden streets of future Detroit, where the law has a new face, and it's pixelated. This game manages to distill the essence of the iconic 80s movie into an action-packed side-scroller that's as unforgiving as it is addictive. It's as if someone decided that what the world really needed was a way to step into the metallic shoes of its favorite cyborg law enforcer, and frankly, they were right.

Graphically, Robocop is a testament to the Commodore 64's ability to bring cinematic heroes to life within the confines of 8-bit architecture. The game's depiction of Detroit's dystopian future is both bleak and vibrant, with enough neon to make you feel like you're on the set of a sci-fi film. Robocop himself is rendered with a surprising amount of detail, from the gleam of his armor to the iconic Auto 9 pistol at his side. The enemies, ranging from street thugs to the infamous ED-209, provide a constant threat that keeps players on their toes.

The sound design complements the visuals perfectly, with a chiptune version of the movie's theme that's sure to get your adrenaline pumping. The sound effects, from the staccato of gunfire to the mechanical whir of Robocop's movements, add an extra layer of immersion to the experience.

Gameplay in Robocop is a challenging mix of shooting, punching, and strategic navigation. The streets of Detroit are filled with dangers, and it's up to you to clean them up one pixelated perp at a time. The game demands precision, patience, and a keen eye for detail, as ammunition is limited and health pickups are few and far between. Each level brings new challenges, from rescuing hostages to taking down bosses that test your mettle as Detroit's finest cybernetic officer.

Robocop on the Commodore 64 is a digital journey into the heart of 80s action cinema, offering a blend of challenge, strategy, and sheer firepower that's as compelling now as it was at the height of Robocop's popularity. So, load up, step into the boots of Detroit's finest, and remember: Dead or alive, you're coming with me!

Robocop Tips and Tricks

For those ready to uphold the law in a city that's forgotten its meaning, here are a few tips to help you serve the public trust, protect the innocent, and uphold the law in Robocop:

  1. Conserve Your Ammo: Your gun is powerful, but bullets are scarce. Aim carefully and make each shot count. Don't be afraid to use your fists when the situation allows.
  2. Stay Alert: Enemies can come from anywhere, including the background. Keep an eye on all parts of the screen to avoid getting blindsided.
  3. Learn Enemy Patterns: Each enemy type has its own behavior. Study their patterns to find the safest and most effective way to take them down.
  4. Prioritize Objectives: Some levels have specific objectives, like disarming bombs or rescuing hostages. Focus on these before going after every bad guy.
  5. Use Cover Wisely: Certain sections allow you to take cover behind objects. Use this to your advantage to avoid incoming fire and plan your next move.

Level Skipping

While on the title screen that accompanies the first level, type SUEDEHEAD to load the second level instead. Then, on the second level title screen, simply type in DISAPPOINTED to load the final level.


While holding down the F, G, H, and J keys, move the joystick in the direction that you're facing. When performed correctly, this should move your robo-character to the top of the screen, where you won't be hit by enemy fire.

When you're ready to come back down to face the music, hold the same four keys, but move your joystick UP/LEFT or UP/RIGHT.

Unlimited Lives

After loading the game, use a reset switch to return to the command prompt, then type POKE 44416,0 and hit ENTER. Then, input the command SYS 32768 to return as a Robo who has more lives than a cat.

Unlimited Energy

If you have an Action Replay cartridge, start the game, then hit the left button on your cartridge to reset before plugging in POKE 44416,0 to gain infinite energy. Hitting F3 will return you to the game.
