This game exists on CPC version and GX4000/PLUS cartridge.
The 2 versions are quite different (better graphics for the Cartridge) yet none are really good.
Too bad as this could have been a decent Robocop-like game.
Concerning the Cartridge version :
Again, the major flaw was the too heavy use of the Hardwired sprites for the characters sprites (player or creeps) : those are DATA-heavy and slow to "animate" properly, as the 16 slots are too few for a proper animation with numerous frames or simply to feature enough enemies on the screen (the same probelm with Robocop 2 yet this one turn to be more a platformer than a shooting-punks-game).
Yet the scrolling is quite decent, fluid and smooth.
And graphics are colourfull, the hard-sprites being in pseudo Mode1 with 15 colours.
