If you’re in the mood for some old-school Contra-style action, then you’re in luck; retro shooter Super Cyborg trying to scratch that itch and it’s on its way to Switch on April 1st.
The game is published by Drageus Games and developed by Artur Games. It’s already available on Steam, with an overall rating of “very positive” based on a total of 425 reviews – not too shabby!
Here’s an overview from the game’s official Steam page:
Super Cyborg is an old-school, non-stop hardcore run’n’gun action game! You are an elite combat cyborg sent to investigate a series of anomalies on a mysterious island. The merciless and powerful alien known only as the “Xirxul life-form” has been awakened by unwitting scientists and now: all of humanity is in peril! Shoot, run and jump through 7 levels filled with endless hordes of biological horrors and some of the most intense boss fights of any title. Destroy everything that moves on this island because if it moves, kill it!
Are you ready to save the earth?
It certainly seems like a good alternative for those looking for the “classic” Contra gameplay. As for the Contra series itself, Konami’s recent efforts with Cons: Rogue Corps was received with overwhelmingly negative response and received a 4/10 on our review.
At least we have the Contra Anniversary Collection, right?
