Retro Gaming Advent Calendar – 11th December

December 11th. Robocod – Amiga

This game is great fun and it captures the joy of Christmas. Each level has a glorious Toy box theme and throughout the game you will liberate elves, defeat evil snowmen and collect penguins (Mcvities, so tasty Chocolate ones!)
The sugar coated graphics and delightful tunes fill you with Christmas joy for the entire holiday period. Dreamkatcha (The gangster from Manchester) on the Amigos Podcast rates Robocod as one of the greatest Amiga games around, whilst it doesn’t make my top list as I love racing games and strategy game I do agree it’s a fun game.

    I got a mention. I'm famous! 😀

    Spot on. Nothing says Christmas in Amigaland more than Robocod. It looks good enough to eat. You can never get that tune out of your head… and that's a *good* thing!

    The later releases swapped the penguins for elves since the deal with McVities had lapsed.

    Never played the later version with no mcvites. I now realise why I wasn't wowed , I had already played an import of super mario world. If they had bundled a multi button controller in with the a1200 and a cartridge port so developers could slow the piracy I am convinced history would be very different. Even just the controller would have improved things.
