Yeah sure, feel free. I'd love to see it end up being used as a pencil holder in Timbuktu a few years down the line.
A mid-jump failsafe like that would certainly have prevented you from falling what seemed like thousands of feet right back to square one. Now that was frustrating!
The sequel - Operation Starfish - expanded on the Robocod concept, taking it in a more Sonicy direction, though it was largely met with a lukewarm reception. There was also going to be a fourth outing known as 'The Curse of Count Piracula' before the world moved on and lost interest in this kind of game. Shame the Kickstarter revival campaign fell flat on its face.
