Cops And Robbers

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Grimeport city is overrun by criminals.. your job is to chase them down, and bring them in!

"Cops and Robbers" is a fun chaotic game, which is simple to play and addictive.

It is a variation on the running platformer genre, with a twist - which is that you are always chasing a robber across the randomly generated scenery.

Controls are very easy to master:

SPACE - press this to jump, press again to double jump

ANY KEY ON BOTTOM ROW - press to fire your current weapon, if you have collected one

The robber can be caught by catching up with him, and also by reducing their health to zero. You have to arrest each robber a number of times before progressing to the next level.

All instructions are explained in the game via short cutscenes, and a simple tutorial overlay appears to describe the basics when first played.

oh really

Much fun :D
Very nice, cool game. It would be perfect if there were some funny conversations between the cop and robbers during the chase.

I enjoyed playing it, thank you.


Rather crudely made, but proves that graphics don't make the game.
I enjoyed this and haven't played anything quite like it before.Well done though a little more effort in the art department would help.

Very fun my good chap, it honestly reminds me of that little flipbook that that guy from "Shaun of The Dead" made

Fun and definitely addicting, except it's sometimes impossible to see what you're about to run into, and how come when you fall into the water, you die, but when the robber falls, he gets to jump ahead (i.e. he doesn't die)?
