Lots of times robots are the villains but there are times when these mechanical beings rise to be the heroes we never knew we needed like in Cyberman V. This is a future where almost any electrical device can be given a voice unit and be considered a robot. This is something you don't need to worry about since you take control of a humanoid robot that bears the name Cyberman. Armed with a laser gun, you need to lead him through a series of levels inhabited by dangerous robots of all shapes and sizes that would rather you see you as a pile of scrap metal.
About Cyberman V
Thanks to games like those in the Mega Man series, we've come to view humanoid robots in the heroic light shared by humans. This is a game that puts you right into a pair of robot shoes to save the day in old-school platforming style. There are some elements of run-and-gun in there, but the game takes its time to introduce all of its threats as you make your way through the levels. The confined spaces make for challenging areas considering all the types of dangers that are crammed into them. Because of this, you'll learn that the hero isn't as durable as they may appear.
How to Play
Cyberman V is a 2D platform game about a robot running and gunning through levels using the mouse or keyboard. If you use the former, you'll need to use the cursor and Left Mouse Button to click the move, jump, and shoot icons on the bottom left and bottom right parts of the screen.
- W/Up Arrow - Jump
- S/Down Arrow - Slide
- A/Left Arrow - Move Left
- D/Right Arrow - Move Right
- X/L - Shoot
The goal of each level is to collect Gems and find the exit while eliminating enemies and collecting as many coins as possible. Your stats are located at the top of the screen with your health in the top left area. If your health drops to zero, you'll have to retry the level.
When Cyberman spawns, he'll have to explore the level, running from one end to the other. While exploring, he'll encounter various enemies that can be destroyed by shooting them. They all do damage on contact and will have different movement patterns. There will also be hazards like lasers and flame traps which need to be avoided. The most dangerous hazard is spikes that will instantly kill Cyberman if he touches them. It's possible to restore health by collecting health pickups in the level. There are also breakable objects like crates and boxes that can be destroyed by shooting them.
The Gems can be found in corners of the level, blocked by enemies and obstacles. After you have enough, you can look for the exit which takes the form of a large dark doorway.
Tips and Tricks
This is a platform game where you don't move very fast so there's no reason to rush through. The spaces are quite cramped meaning that evading enemies can be risky and shooting them is the better solution. Spike areas are the biggest threat and you'll want to check that there's nothing around them that could stun you or cause you to fall.
