Cyber Shadow is an action platformer game, which draws inspiration from the achievements of 8-bit era classics. The production was developed by the independent studio Mechanical Head, and its release was taken care of by Yacht Club Games.

Plot

Cyber Shadow takes us to a metropolis named Mekacity, which has been attacked by sinister machines. The main character of the game is Shadow - a ninja warrior trying to discover the real reasons behind the invasion and to stop his synthetic adversaries.

Mechanics

In Cyber Shadow the action is shown from the side. While travelling through various locations, we mainly deal with numerous platformer sections and environmental traps and the elimination of hordes of enemies. The key to success in battles is not only to dish out quick attacks but also to avoid hostile blows and to get execute swift counterattacks.

In addition to ordinary enemies who are relatively easy to defeat, we are faced with more demanding bosses, that include powerful combat machines and ninja robots. Throughout his adventure, Shadow rescues members of his clan who teach him new skills, allowing him to face stronger opponents over time.

Technical aspects

The two-dimensional graphics of the Cyber Shadow game were made in a pixel art technique. The old-school design is complemented by a dynamic, chiptune soundtrack.
