Hack of RoboCop 2

Description:

This hack simply changes the physics so that the player has better control of Robocop. It now quickly (but not instantly) accelerates to max speed when pressing a direction, and it quickly loses all speed (but not instantly) when directions are released. Works both on ground and in the air.

The hack is incomplete and is being worked on. The game uses different physics for every type of floor. The aim of the hack is to make it consistent so that every floor has the same physics.

Tested until stage 5.

Known issue: when landing on a moving platform Robocop will move forward a few pixels.

Awesome improvement on game play!

Reviewed By: cospefogo on 04 Jun 2020

I spent months of my life playing the original version on a Brazilian NES clone back in 1991 (if I remember well) and it was so painful to control RoboCop as if he was always walking on a soap floor… oh my — it was a disgrace, but I was able to beat the game. I did swear to never touch this title again!

But now, with this AWESOME IMPROVEMENT HACK I really think it is time to revisit this title. The controls are simply perfect now. This is the way it should ever behave!

Thanks NESRocks for this great patch!
