You were dashing to the rescue to save some poor soul in distress, the next thing you know.....you have crash landed on this Droid forsaken Planet, shot down! Not by an old Sky Pirate, no-that Laser blast could only come from a :-
Mk.IV Cybernetic Android - A Cybernaught!!!!
It seems he wants your ship 'The Karellen' the fastest ship in the Galaxy! The ship is disabled at the moment, because your power source, Xylenium Crystals, was destroyed when you were shot down. Fortunately your scanner picked up several possible sources of the crystal on the planet, though the power failed before you could pin point them. All you have to do is find enough, take them and repair your ship, and avoid the Cybernaught (easy..you hope!)
Of course the 'Cybernaught' won't take kindly to you plundering his planet and blasting his Creatures, which you must do to succeed!
So you don your Cybertronic Exo-Skeleton Suit (courtesy of GalCorp) and step out of the airlock onto this strange alien world as the .... CYBORG!
...So - WELCOME TO THE WORLD of CYBORG !
A unique game for any Acorn RISC OS 32 Bit computer.
It combines the very best features of a fast action arcade-style game with the enthralling atmosphere of an illustrated multi-location adventures. The arcade section features the unusual view of the alien world, that of looking through the visor of your Cybertronic suit!
In the Adventure stage you can play one of 3 levels:-
Easy Play, Standard Play or Advanced Play.
If this is your first adventure you may wish to take the easy option but you must build up a considerable score in the Arcade section as it will cost you Credits to take the easy route !
