"Cybernator is a side-scrolling action/platformer/shooter in a style that could be called similar to Gunstar or Contra, but instead of controlling a human being with a spreadgun you're instead in command of a massive metal mech. It's an interesting shift – because the control feels definitively different as a result. You're not agile, you're not quick. You're a lumbering, but powerful, machine of war."
