For the NES version, see Total Recall (NES).

Total Recall is a video game based on the movie of the same name, featuring 2D action, platformer scenes and top-down racing scenes. A version was released for popular 8-bit home computers (Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC), and the popular 16-bit home computers (Amiga and Atari ST). The game was developed and released by Ocean Software. There was also a much-maligned NES version, which was notably different from the others, being developed by a different team (Interplay). Interplay defended the changes, however, claiming that their alteration stuck closer to the spirit of the original short story, which they said "read more like a platformer."

You play as Douglas Quaid in the year 2084. After using an experimental memory implant device, you must battle your way through different levels and enemies on the planet Mars to unlock the secret hidden by aliens in the ancient past.
