As Shadow, players will be able to quickly navigate Mekacity’s dark, platforming-focused levels and finish enemies by utilizing a host of different skills combined with precise fluid controls.
With a surprisingly fleshed out story presented through both in-game and cinematic cutscenes, over a dozen bosses to hunt down and destroy, and a soundtrack co-produced by the composer behind Shovel Knight, Cyber Shadow certainly has the promise to live up to the high bar set by the games that inspired it.
