In February of 2014 movie-critics, action junkies and lovers of the unlikely hero will sit back to enjoy the anticipated release of the remake of Robocop – a 1980s pop-culture classic that took action theatre by storm. Before the movie hits the big screens, however, iOS users can interact with the main character on the little screen, with the Robocop third-person shooter game set to hit iOS devices in January 2014.
Many action shooter games have failed on a mobile gaming platform, with mechanics that just didn’t flow or a main character that audiences simply didn’t make a connection with. With developers MGM and Glu Mobile backing this creation, however, mobile gamers are likely to be in for an addictive, challenging and much awaited third-person shooter release. Whether you lived through the 80s, were born in the 80s or just love retro pop-culture, you’ll be familiar with the character and story of Robocop. MGM and Glu Mobile will make the most of the already existing bond that players share with the character, along with the brand label, to make this an enticing new app for all users.
While a great story line is part of an epic adventure, playability is the main concern when it comes to creating such an in-depth third-person shooter on such small devices. Users of iPhones and other iOS devices can expect a similar playing style to that of games such as ‘Time Crisis’, according to the team at “Inside Mobile Apps”. Whether you’re shooting or crouching for cover behind fixed objects within the game, users are sure to experience a feeling of nostalgia when playing the 2014 version of Robocop. With an arsenal of weapons at your disposal, in true Robocop style, the game is sure to not only please original gamers, but to also tempt a brand new generation of mobile users to come over to the crime fighting side.
