Techno Cop (or Technocop) is a 1988 action game released for various home computers by Gremlin Graphics before being picked up by Razorsoft, who ported it to the Sega Genesis and released exclusively in the US in 1990.


The game alternates between a 3D driving section and a side-scrolling run-and-gun section. In the driving section, your goal is to get through safely while destroying cars along the way. Use Up to accelerate, Down to brake, and B to shoot (the gun is mounted at the top right side of your vehicle). In the side-scrolling section, use A to jump and launch yourself forward and B to shoot. C switches between a gun for killing and a gun for netting. Hit Down to crouch (while crouching, you can only shoot the killing gun) and Up to stand back up.
