Robocop 2 no Reset!

During this game, CRTL,A,A keys do not reset this game(on a real A500)
It stays in the memory!!
How did they manage to do this?? And why??
It's soo annoying have to turn the power off to get rid of this game

PLEASE CAN SOMEONE REMOVE THIS!!

(Are there more games with this issue?)

IIRC The New Zealand Story also did that.

They intercept the one of the vectors and point it back to the game so it runs game code instead of rebooting. It's most likely done to deter hackers and prevent ripping graphics and sound.

If you use WHDLoad, you don't need to worry as you can just hit the quit key!

I thought it's small joke by developers as you can not reset main character also
