Sergeant Seymour Robotcop

Sergeant Seymour Robotcop

an unrealized game of codemasters in 1992

Video by the author: Dave Spicer

[ Show youtube player ]

Message from Dave Spicer:
"Sergeant Seymour: Robotcop was a budget game released for the Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64 in 1992. Not many people are aware that Codemasters also commissioned versions for the Amiga and Atari ST. Here's a quick play through of around half of the levels on the Amiga. Note that this is a 50fps game, so playback on YouTube is a little janky.

Gameplay isn't as enjoyable as the 8-bit versions, despite using the same underlying logic. Larger sprites and tiles screw with the speed balancing and the game feels a bit "off". A few weeks spent polishing the gameplay and presentation would have improved the end result immensely. Frankly, my heart wasn't in it because I was at university at the time and mainly concerned with "getting it done" and collecting the pay cheque.

Jason Brashill's characterful sprites are the highlight for me. Everything else is a bit lacklustre"

OMG! I LOVE Sergeant Seymour on the C64.

How do we get the Amiga one?! I didn't even know it existed!

Someone commented on his video:

Looks amazing!! Is there a download for us still using Amigas ?
And he responded:

Sadly not. Codemasters don't allow any distribution of legacy titles. I'd love to make this available, possibly with a few improvements, I just don't think it can ever happpen.

"Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop" sounds like a winner to me.

true, especially the sprite, making this a Dizzy tie-in makes it look lame. this would be a much better game without a stupid egg in it.
