RoboCop (Game Boy)
RoboCop for the Game Boy is notable for having its title theme used in an advert for Ariston.
A short message from the developer, intended to be used the same way on the title screen as the intro and the credits text, is present at 0x105AC. The final game has no code that uses this message, and it likely wasn't finished (see the next section). Use Game Genie codes CB1-EDB-4C7 451-EEB-E67 to see it instead of the initial copyright messages.
The full text is:
HI TO MUM AND DAD SIMON AND LYNN WENDY AND PHILLIP DAVID AND GARETH STEPHEN AND ASHLEY AND ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN N.IRELAND
Unused Password Feature
There is an unused password entry routine, fully functional and almost finished, except all the passwords for Levels 2 to 10 are just lots of identical numbers from "0000" to "8888". You can re-enable it at the title screen with Game Genie codes 6AD-5DB-805 4BD-5EB-C43, then at the title screen press Start to enter it. Unfortunately, due to method of hacking, you couldn't start a new game, while this codes are enabled. So, when entered the password and returned back to the title screen, disable cheats and press Start to start from desired level.
Additionally, there are two secret passwords: "0618" and "6544".
- The first one displays the message "HI.OCEAN" and enables the ending credits message, which is enabled normally after you beating the game.
- The second one should be enabled when the first one is entered or the game is completed, and should display the message "HI.GERALD". However, due to code mistakes, you'll see only the "PASSWORD IS OK" message. In any case, there is no effect from this password. This said, it does raise some additional flag near the ending flag, which isn't used by any part of the game, suggesting that this is connected to the unfinished developer message above.
