    Techno Cop is a run and gun game set in the near future. The protagonist is a cop dressed in a red trenchcoat, who seeks to clear his town of all the criminal scum. The game consists of two parts: one driving action segment and one side-scrolling action segment. In the first part Techno Cop drives around in his red Lamborghini and destroys hostile cars. In the side-scrolling segments, he somersaults over gaps, uses elevators and shoots lots of enemies until he reaches the boss. After having killed or caught the villain, the player then has to go back to the car and drive to the next mission. When the game first came out it drew political controversy for being considered graphic at the time and projecting violent police officers.

    There are two types of ammo. The first is a net, which captures enemies but has a fairly long reload between shots. The second is a standard pistol. What made this game controversial is not only that shooting people with the pistol results in blood, but it's possible to shoot kids as well as criminals.
