RoboCop is a beat 'em up/run and gun arcade game developed and published by Data East in 1988 based on the 1987 film of the same name. It was sub-licensed to Data East by Ocean Software, who obtained the rights from Orion Pictures at the script stage.

Gameplay
Robocop is a hybrid game, featuring elements from both beat 'em up as well as run and gun titles.
Release
Despite being an arcade game, numerous versions appeared for home computers and video game consoles. The first group was released in 1988 for the Apple II, PC compatibles, Amiga, and Atari ST. The Apple and PC ports were developed by Quicksilver Software, while the Amiga and ST versions were developed directly by Ocean. Data East published the game in North America. A NES port followed in 1989, developed by Sakata SAS Co, and a version for the TRS-80 CoCo 3. Ocean developed and published a version for the Game Boy in 1990.

In 1989, Ocean released a different Robocop game that only bore a loose resemblance to the arcade; this version was produced for the Commodore 64, MSX, ZX Spectrum, Tandy Color Computer 3 and Amstrad CPC, as well as PC compatibles, meaning that PCs ended up with two entirely different Robocop games for North American and European audiences. As with many Ocean C64 titles, both cassette and disk versions were released; the North American release (also published by Data East) was based on the disk version. All C64 RoboCop versions were notorious for having high numbers of bugs; in 2015, cracker group Nostalgia released a completely bug-fixed Robocop compatible with both PAL and NTSC machines. A port of the game for the Atari Jaguar was planned but never released.
