I just discovered it yesterday, and immediately was amazed by how awesome it is.

Anybody played it?

What do you mean?

 
I guess he's never heard of PC gamepads, or PSX->PC adapters, and he's assuming you're emulating.


Cybernator was pretty hard.  Not as hard as Target:Earth, but pretty hard.  Fun, though I thought T:E got across the point that you're a soldier in a war larger then you better then it did.

Since I'm guessing 5-1 you're emulating, and you haven't just managed to dig up an actual cart, I'd suggest you look into the afforemention Target: Earth for the genesis - it's Cybernator's predecessor.  And you might want to dig up Front Mission: Gun Hazard.  Despite the name, it has zippo to do with the tile based game, and IIRC it started out as Assault Suits Valken 2 (Cybernator 2).  It's got no space scenes, and some rudimentary RPG parts, but it's pretty much 16 bit giant robot fun.

i just beat it 2 months ago in zsnes. keypad + asdzxc. helps if you set up diagonals. though i have beat it on the super nintendo a few times back in the day, frankly the keyboard doesn't tire your hands as fast as a snes gamepad does.

You should get the translation.
A lot of stuff was cut from the game during localisation.

dunno if it works away from the SNES but if you can make it through the first level without killing any badguys (save the boss) you get a hidden weapon.

That, or you could read my post.

I mean that it is difficult to play the game with a keyboard as the input device.

I remember that... Napalm weapon, wasn't it?
When the reactor explodes, it's usually a sign that you've taken too much damage.

AIeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!



<Cybernators biggest FAnboi.


The Pacific States was my first console alligience verging on fanaticism.
I wanted the Versis,. an assault Suit, and my very own Arc Nova Station.


The intro is pure genius, and the music is great.

I actually feel sad remembering: "THE SARATOGA'S BEEN BLOWN TO BITS!!"


They had the best beam cannons in the world in that scene.......  Thats how FS ships should crumble....... :nod:

Y'know it's funny... until today I would've sworn I was the only English bloke who's played this game (and was willing to admit to it).

I bought the cart from a cash converters style place round eastbourne way back in the mid nineties...


I love the game, Multiple endings on platformers are rare too. ANother tick in the Cybernators favour.

My first FS project cruiser started as a failed Versis clone 

 
I rented this a few times way back in the SNES days but never beat it until I emulated it a couple years back. Class game, great fun.

But multiple endings? You sure? Christ, it took enough effort just to beat it once.
Watch out for the Guns! They'll getcha!

the only think that really changed was the way the story ended. you loose the girl if you fail too many missions.

Only if the Arc-nova made it back to Earth. I think the shuttle launch may play a small part but i doubt it :) random point: my fave weapon is the maxed out vulcan :nod:
