Cyber Cityzen Shockman 2: A New Menace has arrived more than three decades after its original release. Would this be a good sequel?
For those who love retro games, you probably already know the name Cyber Cityzen Shockman. This game was released in 1991 for the old TurboGrafx-16 console and was a modest success and now a new sequel is arriving for new generation consoles.
Cyber Citizen Shockman 2: A New Menace is, in turn, a faithful sequel to the original game, maintaining its retro pixel art style and challenging gameplay. Players control the titular Shockman, a cyborg superhero who must defend the city from a new wave of robotic enemies.
The game features eight stages, each with a unique boss battle. I have to say that the bosses in turn are something cool and somewhat nostalgic. Shockman can use his blaster to attack enemies and can also collect power-up items to improve his skills. The game also introduces a new “spray” mechanic, which allows Shockman to instantly destroy certain enemies and objects.
Cyber Citizen Shockman 2: A New Menace is a challenging game but also very rewarding. The controls are responsive and the gameplay is precise. The game also features a great soundtrack that perfectly captures the retro atmosphere. The game is complemented by a good soundtrack and graphics that help each other
Overall, Cyber Cityzen Shockman 2: A New Menace is a great sequel to the original game. A game that could be worth it for those who don’t know the saga and for those who have some nostalgia for the original game. In a way, a way to appreciate classic works that were completely hidden in the past.
