Just a thought I had while looking at footage of Star Fox on YouTube earlier today. Seems to me like the Super FX chip could have rendered I, Robot without breaking a sweat.  :)

Yes I imagine that's right. Has I'Robot been ported to any home system?

AFAIK, none. Would be cool seeing it on a Evercade compilation though... :)

I got to thinking (a dangerous thing, I know) that IT HAS been "ported" to MAME + PC. leaving.gif.acd8802749529a70c51c97b5e27e0517.gif

And there was, IIRC, a stand-alone emulator or remake with the roms embedded.

I always thought I, Robot would be the ultimate Jaguar port, especially since it's Atari all the way.  Sadly, I'm one of the ones with ambitious ideas and crappy coding skills.

 

A SNES Super-FX port is an interesting spin on the idea. Would be hard to make repro carts tho, but I suppose it could be played with the high-end everdrives.

 

That's all theoretical.  Either of these efforts would take months of work from a skilled coder.

 

I don't suppose the I-Robot Arcade game has any known source code?  Or maybe someone has worked with the decompiled ROM and noted some of it?
