Buzzword of the year so far is paladin, and this latest one is a bounty hunter on the prowl for Cyborgs and their boss Vipron. On the trail to victory over these heinous interlopers there are seven areas to battle through, with a final confrontation in the last one.
Each area is a multi-floored building connected with lifts. The areas have to be tackled in order, because completing one provides an ID card for access to the next. There are several types of Cyborg - two in each area. The Chief Cyborgs are the ones that have to be destroyed.
Using the map and a tunnel scanner, the Cyborgs can be tracked down and destroyed using one of several weapons. You only start with two types of punch, but guns and bombs can be picked up along the way. There are also a shield and a jet engine that help to get past obstacles.
Hits from Cyborgs and other obstacles reduce the life meter, which can be replenished by picking up capsules. Psycho power operates some of the weapons and this too has to be topped up.
Gameplay is limited to running around and blasting the Cyborgs, and the graphics are not that hot either. Not one of the better efforts around at the moment.
